Welcome to the Drawing Room

Hello! I assume you are here desiring an audience with Lord Heartless? He is out at the moment but I anticipate his return at any time. Until then, find a comfortable chair, settle in, and enjoy a spot of tea. Browse through the available reading material, learn what you can of the heartless duke, and decide if you really want to meet him. Please leave your calling card in the form of a comment.

It was lovely to see you! Please stop by again.

Surely, there's an easier way...

Ever have one of those days where nothing seems to go quite as planned? I'm having one of those years, I think. It all started when I edited the first four chapters of Heartless, started rewriting chapter five and then lost everything I did when my flash drive decided to croak. 

I have since started over on the editing and have just completed chapter four. Not bad for six+ weeks, huh? (I'm rolling my eyes here.) I've a great start on the rewrite of chapter five but let me tell ya, I was so tempted to crapcan the whole d*** project and my writing career too, for good measure. Can you hear the frustration I'm suffering under here??

*deep breath*

OK, now that the whining's out of the way, let's get down to brass tacks. Heartless MUST return to his rightful place at the top of bestselling lists everywhere. I admit, he was only at the top of search lists on Amazon (thus inciting venom from a tiny-minded fellow writer-type) but I'm determined he'll see the top of bestseller lists too, upon his re-release.

So....back to editing his brains out. *snort* (Now you're rolling your eyes too. We're all in this together.) 

While I'm doing that, why don't you click over to my author blog and weigh in on a very serious subject. How do you define sweet, traditional, and clean when it comes to romances? Is there even a difference? Click the pretty little rose to hop over to my other blog and let me know what you think.

Those of us who love him can be patient. Those who haven't met him will love him when he emerges whenever the time is right. Relax and take your time. Little by little, you will make it. :) I know you can do it. Heartless will emerge better than before.

When people ask "When will Heartless be out?" I need to stop replying with "The end of this month." Another month has passed and the edits still aren't done. UGH!
