Rewrite heaven

I’ve finished my proposal for a new series and sent it off to my agent, and now I’m ready to dive into the rewrites of My Sweet Thief, second book in my Born in a Brothal series.

I’m excited about getting back into MST. As I wrote the first draft I made a gazillion notes on things I wanted/needed to change. A few are substantial–like Mr. Arrogant who insisted he have a bigger part.

My goal is to wrap up the second draft before National, which is the last week of July. It’ll be a push, but I work well under pressure (she says with fingers crossed). And to make sure I stay on track, I’ll post progress reports here. Get on me if I forget. 🙂

    LOL they usually do, Theresa. And it works. I’ve made it through 45 pages of rewrites and falling in love with the characters all over again. 🙂
