I am proud to announce I have finished writing the first draft of Book 2 in The Rosewood Series!! Yes, Thorns of Rosewood has a sibling! I do think of these books as my children. Flames of Rosewood has been born and now we just have to clean it up a little. This means I’m having some people read it for plot holes and mistakes. I ask these readers to tell me where the story can be improved. My husband is my first reader and he had a few really great ideas of how I could make the story better. I have a couple of other friends reading it right now. Hopefully by the end of the week, I’ll be working on their suggestions. Then I’ll probably send it out to a couple other trusted beta readers. It goes to an editor mid-January and my cover designer will start working on a cover in the near future, too! How exciting!! You know what’s even more exciting?!!!! Wanna know? Huh?
Well, I’ll tell you!
I’ve already started working on Book 3!! My husband and I started brainstorming ideas and voila, a premise is now stewing in my little old brain.
If you read Book 1, Thorns of Rosewood, you’ll remember Debbie was sort of the star of the four Thorns. In Book 2, Flames of Rosewood, Josie is more prominent. In Book 3, Tanya will be the Featured Thorn.
I’m really excited to have everyone read Book 2. I love the characters, both old and new, and I like the ending, too. Hoping readers will feel the same. I’m really tickled about the ideas for Book 3. It should be fun to write and thus, fun to read!
To celebrate finishing the first draft of Book 2, I’m going to give away one free signed print copy of Thorns of Rosewood to a select reader who comments here on this post. So comment to win and get ready. More Thorns are coming soon!
