This is going to be one helluva week so I’ll briefly dispense with the announcements.

Romance Novel TV posted my review of Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos. I’ve been reading all the best sellers and well, there’s a reason why this book has made a strong showing on all the lists.

If you’re in Huntington Beach or around those parts, I’ll be talking about my books at an afternoon tea thrown by the Friends of the Huntington Beach Public Library on Thursday at 1:30 p.m. If you want to go, check out the details by clicking here.

And finally, I finished draft one of my book! Hooray! It’s only a 150 pages short of its intended length but then my first drafts are always short so I shouldn’t worry. But I will. Just a little.

Cheers,
Mary

  1. Congrats on finishing your first draft! My first drafts are always short, too. Later I layer in details–setting, actions, and the like. That’s when I eradicate the talking head syndrome my characters sometimes have, add any bridge scenes, flesh things out, etc.

  2. Hi Caryn: I do the exact same thing that you do. But now I’m writing in a new storyline so we’ll see what sticks.Cheers,Mary

  3. Hey Mary-Great review- I’ve been meaning to pick up a copy of that!But more importantly, Congrats on the first draft– that’s always such a great feeling!
