Find His Way Home, Nell's WIP, The Locked Room, Unconditionally

Monday writing update

Mondays mean I write about what I did the previous week:

The Locked Room
I rewrote and edited three chapters. It’s going really well, and I’m continuing this week. I like the new version better. It’s tighter and better when it’s not in present tense. Feels like a good decision.

I didn’t write anything on my current WIP last week. I came up with a title though:ย Never Before Him. I need to name MC2 before I can write more, and I thought I had a name. Then my husband threw a monkey-wrench in my plan and suggested another one. So now I can’t decide between the two.

What do you think? This guy, does he look like a Sage or a Jerome? Let me know in comments ๐Ÿ™‚


Find His Way Home
I finished my edits, wrote a blurb, and a detailed summary and submitted it to my publisher on Monday. And they said yes! So in May, my second short story will be published, how cool is that?

If you’re curious about how the blurb turned out,ย go to the Coming Soon tab and read it!


I updated the blog, too, with a new section, as you can see in the image above.ย 

I celebrated my first ever release on Saturday, and I cried a little (happy tears) when I read my first ever review (four fabulous stars!)


But I can’t rest on my laurels, so I’d better go to work now. There’s words to be written and edited! ๐Ÿ™‚


Inspirational pictures

I save a lot of inspirational pictures for my stories and I thought I’d share some with you for Unconditionally.

First my inspiration for Gus and Luca:



โ€œYou look exactly like the new Mr. Spock.โ€ The guy smiled, and Gus almost swooned at the sight of the corners of his lush mouth curling up. โ€œI think itโ€™s the eyebrows,โ€ the guy continued and traced his finger along Gusโ€™s right eyebrow. โ€œOr the nose.โ€ The finger changed direction and continued down the bridge of his nose.


His dark brown hair reached his chin and had the slightest curl at the ends. Long bangs covered one of his eyes, leaving only one dark, glittering eye visible and trained on Gus. But his lips stole all Gusโ€™s attention. Full, pouty lips, curved up in an amused smile. Lips that glistened in the dim light at the bar like heโ€™d just licked them or put something on them.

Top right picture: Luca’s favorite lip gloss. Or was it Gus’s? ๐Ÿ™‚
Low left picture: Gus’s mom gave him an old stethoscope for his sixth birthday
Low right picture: Luca’s wedding tux, without shirt and everything. Drives Gus mad…in a good way ๐Ÿ™‚
