Getting to Know You

Posted Mar 25 2018

In mid-February I started work on the third book in my Touched by a Demon trilogy, The Demon Wore Stilettos. I’ve been looking forward to this one, because the she-demon Lilith, who has been a minor character in the previous two books, finally gets to take center stage.    I’ve had this book in the back of my mind […]

Taking the Chill Off

Posted Feb 25 2018

FEBRUARY 20, 2018 BY JEANNE   The idea to do these posts started when my sister posted this video of Diana Gabaldon on Facebook and tagged me: The video really surprised me, because my own cold start process is day-and-night different from Diana’s. When I’m trying to pick back up after being away from a work-in-progress for […]

What’s in a Blurb?

Posted Feb 9 2018

As I mentioned in last week’s progress report, I hired the inimitable Kat Sheridan to write back cover copy for The Demon Always Wins.    Although it’s possible to write your own cover copy, and many writers do, I find it difficult to get the proper distance from my work to do that well. Kat is great at […]

January Progress Report

Posted Feb 2 2018

So I had one goal for January: Finish the book. I am sad to report that I did not meet that goal. The book is currently 293 pages, around 75,000 words, but I still have eleven scenes to go. In case you’re wondering what happened, it’s the same thing that always happens to me. I think up […]

Fiction Friday: Writing at the Speed of Snail

Posted Jan 12 2018

Back during World War I, a British man naned C. Northcote Parkinson did some research into work and bureaucracy. From the research, he created Parkinson’s Law, which states “Work expands so as to fill the amount of time available to complete it.” I’m running into that exact same problem with my writing. When I was […]

Fiction Friday: An Interview with Sandra Owens

Posted Jan 5 2018

Sandy Owens is legendary among the Golden Heart® crowd because she went from unpublished in 2013 to RWA® Honor Roll* less than five years later. As we started working together on this interview, I quickly realized why: the woman has an awe-inspiring capacity for turning out high quality work.    Question 1: In your new series, Aces and […]

December Progress Report

Posted Dec 29 2017

My overarching goal, if you may remember, is to release a trilogy of paranormal romances in the fall of 2018. At the end of last month, I was feeling optimistic. I knew that to reach that goal, I needed to finish an editor-ready draft of the second book, The Demon’s in the Details, and be ready […]

Fiction Friday: Interview with Sarah Andre

Posted Dec 8 2017

Today’s interviewee is romantic suspense author Sarah Andre. I first met Sarah over breakfast on the last morning of the 2014 RWA® National Conference in San Antonio. It proved to be a fortuitous meeting because Sarah was up for a Golden Heart® that night. Since I’d only recently joined my local RWA® chapter, I had no idea what a […]
