Writing...It's Not Over is far from being Over Chapters 1-4

I sent the first three chapters to my beta readers last week. I was beyond thrilled with their feedback. Now, don't think that being thrilled at feedback means that they thought I should win a Pulitzer Prize or anything like that. It just means that they're holding me to a high standard and being so damn picky. Between me and you, they also LOVED it. So, thumbs up. I'm so excited to be writing the story of the two most hated characters from The Do Over.  

It's Not Over picks up right after the "confrontation" in The Do Over.

I'm excited!  They're complex, complicated, and royal pains in the asses.  Will Madison be the woman who can bring Rick to his knees, and will Rick be the man who'll be able to break down the walls around Madison's heart?

I was listening to the radio and Aerosmith's Cryin' was playing.  I find it quite apropo for this part of stage of the story.

Happy Reading.  If you haven't read The Do Over, what are you waiting for?

One Month Mile Stone

When I embarked on the journey of allowing the story of my beloved characters to take a life of their own, I never in my wildest dreams--well maybe in my wildest dreams-- imagined that I would meet all of the "realistic" goals that I set.

The greatest satisfaction in sharing The Do Over with you has been connecting with the readers.

I'm excited about it but mostly humbled by the experience.

So to celebrate I'm doing a few things going on:

4 E-books

One Month-i-Versary

One month ago, I pressed SAVE AND PUBLISH on Amazon.  I walked away from my computer with shaking hands and crawled back in bed.  Yes, I really did do that.  I pulled out my Kindle and started reading Cautious by E. L. Montes.

As I read through the prologue, I was PMing Emmy because honestly, I needed support.  All of a sudden, I see on the top of my phone a notification that The Do Over was live.

I jumped out of bed, ran to my laptop, typed "T-h-e- d-o-v-e-r" on and cried.  

I had goals, like everyone who publishes, and thank God and you, the readers, I achieved those goals within days!  Truly humbling and a wonderful experience.

So to say THANK YOU to all of you for being part of an incredible journey in my life, I want to give a little back to you.

Here's a giveaway and maybe another little surprise in the works...
