Working, working, working

Sorry for the lack of words here. I have been very busy behind the scenes.

The first draft of Wren Romany's story is finished. I barely typed the last words than a new tale pressed upon me. So, what was I to do but write. So, I wrote.

The White Bear is now eight, almost nine chapters old. The characters try me in new ways and I am struggling with the different genre (contemporary) and some personality issues with my heroine. Sigh, such is the writing life. ;)

Also, I have been working on the little side projects: a cover for The Mercenary's Marriage and a trailer for Exchange, my science fiction short story due out late summer/early fall. I will get it up as soon as I work out the last of the quirks and run it by my publisher.

I haven't really spent much time on The Crown of Anavrea since finishing up the last of the editing. I still need to read through it once more before contacting beta readers and sending it to them. I am really nervous about this one. This has been an extensive edit, yet I tried to keep so much the same. I fear losing the specialness of the story, the additions not fitting into the original, or losing the beauty of the characters. Yeah, this is just as nerve wracking as the first time I sent it out to friends. So, if you are interested in being a beta reader, please let me know. I could use the feedback. :)

So, that is the update of my writing efforts. Now to get back to work so that I will have some real results to show you soon.

Thanks,

Rachel :)
