Writing Process Blog Hop

My first blog hop as an author, and not just a reader! FUN! I would like to thank Alisa Easton for nominating me! Alisa writes some hot erotica by the looks of it, and I am so excited to read some of her work as soon as I get a little downtime!

Now, I get to do something I haven't done too much of yet, which is tell you a little bit about myself as a writer, and a little bit about what I am working on.

1) What am I currently working on?

I am currently working on two things:  the edits for my first book titled Bride Two Soon, which is the first book in my upcoming Love Multiplied Series tentatively set for release April 30th!

I am also working on the second book in my Love Multiplied Series, titled The Prodigal Bride.

2) How does my work differ from others of it's genre?
If you can't tell by the titles, both of these books combine two lifestyles I find fascinating. Domestic Discipline , and polygamy. One of these I have personal experience with, the other, not so much. I recently moved to an area where polygamy is very rampant, and I began to research it. That's when my book series was born.

Also, at this point  I am focusing on clean domestic discipline stories. There is no sex in my books. For this series, I will definitely be sticking to that. In other books down the road, who knows?

3) Why do I write what I do?

As I said, I find both of these things fascinating, and when I looked around for stories that combined the two, I found very few. I had some friends that had been encouraging me to get back to writing for a while, so since I couldn't find many of these books to read, I decided to write one!

4) How does my writing process work?

*Groan* I'm so terribly old school. I write everything by hand so that I can write wherever I want. I like to write on my front patio sitting in the sunshine, or sometimes at a local park. If its winter, I hole up in the downstairs guest room and do my writing there. I JUST got my first laptop, so we will see if that changes anything. I highly suspect that it won't.

I prefer to write my book in sequence, although I didn't with the last one.  I feel like writing it out of order made it harder so I probably won't do that again if I can help it.

I cant write without a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day or where I am at. If I'm stuck, or at a really intense scene, I need chocolate as well. I never write more than 3000 words a day, and 2000 is my average. Sometimes that takes me all day. I started taking gingko biloba in the mornings to see if it would help improve my focus.

So there you have it, all my silly secrets and idiosyncrasies.

Now I get to nominate 2 people. I nominate Megan Michaels and Angela Fatig Check out these lovely ladies blogs on April 14th to read about their writing process!

  1. handwriting has gotten so bad I don't think I'd be able to decipher it. :) Polygamy is fascinating. Looking forward to your book.
