Yep... you read that right. How to Meet a Guy at the Supermarket will be released soon by Night Publishing! I'll make a formal announcement when the time comes, but I wanted to give you a heads-up. And in a few weeks, I'll be touring down in the Outer Bank for a few days. I hope the weather is nice. Right now in Northwestern Pennsylvania, it's 30 degrees and cold, cold, cold. I'm not ready for snow, or ice, or 4-wheel drive. Sigh. That's what I get for living here.
My creative juices seem to have been flowing lately, too. Decisions recently underwent a huge overhaul, and I'm happier now with how it's going. I'm about 26,000 words in, and I'm debating on whether or not to incorporate some point-of-view shifts. I think that'll help with length, and it'll make the plot a little more rounded. This book is a first for me. It's written in third person, whereas Supermarket and Hooking Up are both written in first. Third person has presented some challenges. I find myself a little distanced from my character. When I write in first, I tend to get very involved in how she feels and thinks,and unfortunately, I think my writing tends to be a little repetitive. Third has been fun, and a refreshing change of pace.
I started another book tentatively called Worth, and I love my main character so far! Her name is Adelaide Dawson, and she's great. And she's big. And she's a great big mess. Addie is living far beneath her potential. She's a big girl in a dead end job with a loser for a boyfriend who eventually becomes verbally abusive. Her nasty boyfriend Dennis has finally walked out,and Addie's forced to make some choices. Will she drown her sorrows in food? Will she decide she's had enough? Or will she pick herself up and show Dennis a thing or two about the woman he thought was worthless? Wait and see! There might be a preview soon...
So, that's all my news for now. Stay tuned for the release of How to Meet a Guy at the Supermarket!
