Pushing Forward: Book 3 Snippets

So last week I sent book 2 (still untitled--ugh!) back to my editor, Michael. Now I'm firmly in book 3. Book 3 started as a rough draft written in two weeks using the basic concept of fast drafting (a killer technique for pounding out your story--70k worth in 14 days--author Candace Havens' idea). So this book? She's an ugly baby. ;-)

Ugh. Lee.

But it's getting better every day.

Here's a snippet from book 3 (still rough) to just give you an idea:


He roars. She’s right. He can’t change-—can’t shift—-can’t let the wolf inside free to fight. His expression twisting with rage, he struggles to keep from showing what’s really inside—-his fear that he finally can’t keep a promise to her. And this may be his most important promise yet.


And if you want to see a snippet from when I was deep in writing the draft itself:

LOL--Glad you both enjoyed the snippets! Sharing bits and pieces helps me stay motivated and focused because I rethink each one as I share them. :-)
