Potential Breakthrough with Editing the book!

I've got a potential breakthrough for my book so this means I can probaby start to work on drafting out new scenes. It hasn't been the easiest of books to edit, because I had no sense of direction and though I'm taking an editing course, I didn't feel I was making any progress. So I had to pare back to basics to focus on this story.

The thing is I like the story, the themes are there but it's so easy for the hero to walk away. There is wasn't anything to show how the relationship developed over time. Yes, they have plenty of sex, but there wasn't enough of a feeling of seeing them fall in love. You know the emotional grip, emotional journey - the bit where you think, awww....I hope these two make it. It was just that bit. I have the bits when they did fall in love and etc, but it was that development. So I think I've cracked it. I hope so.

We'll see. So hopefully, I'll have a different story to post when I next give an update. 

Other things - changes to the daily blogging

I think it's a bit of overkill blogging nearly everyday. There are some features I like, others I just consider a bore. I may just keep the regulars and scrap the features unless I have something to say or may swap over. I'm current busy at work so haven't got the time to review but will do soon.  I'll post a new schedule when I'm done.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
