All up in that romance

I decided to write some romance, some hot, steamy, contemporary romance. Mmm. I finished the first book–all 80k words of it–and it’s now at the proofer! I wrote the second book’s outline during the ‘let it sit’ phase of the first book, and it’s a beast: 9,500 words…

Today, I’m beginning the sequel. I told my pals in the local chapter of the Romance Writers of America that I’m going to write 9,500 additional words this week, and I’ve got 5 full days to make it happen.

I’d like to have this book written by the end of September, edited by the end of October, proofed by the end of November, and published by the end of December.

My goal is to publish the first two books of this romance series (name to be revealed) in 2019.
