So this week I finished the proposal for the second Black Opal book. All done, issues mitigated, out the door... and that was a surprisingly difficult task. I plot heavily. However, I still leave a lot of stuff up to the writing as I go along. Which means that there's usually deviations from my chapter-by-chapter outline. To date, I've never written a synopsis prior to the book being finished and polished. Having to write one with only three or four working chapters under my belt, despite the detailed outline, was a bit difficult. It's not easy to translate: "Hero has a WOW moment" into a synopsis.
Or: "Uh-oh for heroine."
Or even: "Mwahahaha go Villian!"
Meanwhile, STRIPPED is heading for copy-edits, I hear. YAY!! This means we are ever-closer to January and the release.
I'm so anxious to see my cover. And I'm doubly-anxious to share the cover blurb with everyone.
More to come as I'm allowed.
