The title really sums up what I’ve been up to the last few weeks but perhaps I’ll elaborate for the heck of it for a few moments.
Since mid-year I’ve been torn between targetting M&B Modern Heat or Harlequin Superromance. I love both lines for different reasons and have been alternating my reading between them and single-titles. I’m currently reading Natalie Anderson’s ”Pleasured By The Secret Millionairre” and an LBD called ”Blue Remembered Shoes” by Nell Dixon.
I’m loving both but have dived into Nat’s book because I’m stuck in the middle of my own attempt at a Mod Heat and wanted to see how an expert managed to do all the things I want to achieve in my own middle. I’m struggling cos I’ve created two characters with a lot of personal baggage and I really want to get across to possible readers that these two have a lot in common emotionally if they’ll only let go and open up to each other. Problem is one of the plot points is the fact that he is hiding the truth about himself at all costs, so it’s hard to get them talking on the level. I guess I’m scared that I’m gonna let the story potential down.
So… while I wallow… writing is slow but steady at the moment.
I’m also getting extremely buggared (blaming the babe in my womb) at the moment, that by the time I get my kidlets to bed, all I wanna do is curl up with a good book in bed myself.
But I figure that when I feel this way… when I pick up a Mod Heat, a Super, an LBD or something else entirely, at least I’m still researching and learning! Right??
