Are All Authors Obsessive? Hello everyone! I’m so glad to be here today and thank Rebecca a thousand times over for letting me take over her blog today. A few days ago she sent me an email asking if I knew what I wanted to talk about today. I hadn’t given much thought to it, as usually something will come up and inspire me to rant or tell a story for guest blogging. This time was no different. When she texted me yesterday asking if I’d figured it out yet, I had to laugh. Yes, I had figured it out and knew my subject fit her as well as myself.
As an author sometimes I’ll get obsessed with writing a scene or in my case, this past two weeks I’ve been writing a sex scene that involves tons of emotions. Poor Rebecca, she has to read my scenes as I obsess over whether they are good enough, emotional enough, or sexy enough. I’ve been putting off writing on two of my current projects because both were at a point that they needed some serious emotion in the next scene. Finally, after much ignoring it, I sat down and wrote one scene out. I have to say, I feel so much better with that scene behind me. But now is where I will begin to really obsess over the scenes. I won’t be able to help it.
And if that’s not enough, a little birdie told me that switching to another web hosting site was so much better. This little bird was thrilled with her change, so much so that I changed my website too. Let me just say that if I could have pulled my BB gun out and shot that bird out of the sky I would have! Unfortunately, I couldn’t board a plane with my weapon and I’m sure by the time I got to Idaho the bird would have figured out what I was up to and would have been waiting on me with a potato gun big enough to blow me back to Alabama.
So for the last week I’ve been OBSESSING over my website. The story doesn’t end there. Nope my neurosis continues. I emailed my editor at The Wild Rose Press to see if she’d read my last novella. Seconds after I hit send I get a reply. She’s reading it now. GREAT!! I just HAD to know, right! Now I’m really going crazy here. Ever heard of that movie/book Crazy in Alabama? Well I haven’t cut my husband’s head off, stuffed it in a hat box, and traveled to Hollywood to star on Bewitched, but at this point my head is in jeopardy.
And my last piece of my mind is totally fixed on my upcoming release, UNTAMABLE–the first in my Moonlight Cravings series, with Siren Publishing. I just finished my cover questionnaire and I’m hoping I’ll get my edits soon. But for the mean time I have my cover blurb (with much help from Rebecca) so here ya go, I hope you all like it 🙂 :
Waking up tattooed, mated and a werewolf would shock most people but for Siddalee Brighton it’s just another day. Siddalee has always held a burning hunger for her best friend, werewolf Jasper Gandillion. But she never realized what belonging to the animal within him would mean until he marks her in a show of passion and dominance, awakening the werewolf inside her.
Siddalee was the first of many illegal breeding experiments that Luna Werewolf Nation Alpha, Dane Velham created and the only one strong enough to stop the monster from torturing other women and creating more experiments. Will being the daughter of the monster who slaughtered Jasper’s pack destroy the love and lust between Siddalee and Jasper or will they emerge as the new Alpha’s of the Luna Werewolf Nation?
So, Rebecca has agreed to give away one signed ARC of FATED to a lucky commenter. We’ll draw a name later this week.
What are some of the things that you obsess about? And as a reader do you obsess over books? I know for myself there are two books that just came out that I’m fixed on buying! Just as soon as I get to town they are soooo mine. Thanks for having me today and letting me rant a little about the things that have preoccupied my time lately!! (Fear not, the little birdie in Idaho will not be harmed by my BB gun, for now. 🙂 Have a good one y’all!
