Weekly Update 1.19.23

Hello Online Diary!

I’m 38k in my first draft of The Billionaire’s Pact. I have about 3k in draft. However, I’ve reached the place in the book where the hero and heroine travel, and I have to research the country and everything I want them to do there. In The Kept Trilogy, we visited Paris, Rome, the South of France, and the Amalfi Coast. I loved that part and included travel in Love and Destiny. It’s my favorite part of writing the book because this is their chance to grow together and experience some fantasy. Romance usually calls this section the three dates, the forward and back, for the heroine and hero. It’s different for each character. I’m writing an arranged marriage book instead of an arranged lover book. Some aspects will be different, but it’s also sensual. There’s a lot to do. I usually skip this part and mark it to fill in later, but I decided to try something different this time and write a fuller draft.

I have deadlines next week and will have to stop writing to make an outline to submit for the book blurb. February is still my 1st cover month. I still believe I’ll have a full first draft by the end of February. That’s not publishable, but something to work on. I tested three different images to promote The Billionaire’s Pact.

Thank you for reading my books.
