Deep in the heart of proposals

I just finished the first 60 pages of a western historical paranormal, and I’m loving it. It’s darker than my romances, and I so want to write this trilogy! But to do that (ergo, sell the idea to a publisher) I have to write a compelling synopsis to accompany those pages, and I dread it.

Seriously I have to get over this synopsis phobia I have. So, I’m going with my gut and trying a new approach to synopsis writing. No idea if it’ll fly, but nothing ventured nothing gained.

The proposal for the final book in my Born in a Brothel trilogy is ready for my editor’s eyes now. Yeehaw!

And another idea for a western historical trilogy is cooking away in my brain.

Today, life looks pretty good. 🙂

    I can’t wait. To have a western paranormal sounds great. I have read a few and have enjoyed them very much. Looked at your books and read the excerts and will be putting them on my TBB list.

    Hey, thanks, Loretta! Hope my editor feels the same about western paranormals. 🙂

    LOL, Amy. You and me both. 😉

    What makes you want to write a historical paranormal. I like historicals but not sure I would like a paranormal.

    I’ve always wanted to write one, Jane. This idea has bounced around in my head for a long time, and I would really love to write it. Of course, I have to snag an editor’s interest first. 🙂
    And, I still intend to write historical romance. The paranormals would be an extra outlet for my works.

    I will as soon as I can, Julia, meaning when I get the go-ahead from an editor, I’ll post more on the blog. At this point it’s too early to discuss it in public. 🙂

    Ooh, that sounds intriguing! I finally got a chance to read ONE REAL COWBOY, and it was so captivating that I read it straight through. It’s definitely a keeper!

    Wow, wow, thanks, Zara! You made my day. 🙂

    Tammy, I love them too.

    Hey, Robyn, I have a new western romance trilogy I’m mulling over as well as the para one, so there will be more cowboys from me. Yeehaw!

    🙂 Thanks, Kimberly.
