Update: JINXED

 

Jinxed is about 95% complete. I’m waiting for the last line edit to finish.

The beta readers had positive things to write about the book, so I’m really happy with that.

In all, I’m really proud of this book. I’m happy with the outcome. This book started as a screenplay. I wrote it in 2005. 2005! I had so many things to change and bring up to date. It was the first screenplay I had ever written.

But it worked out well. This was one of the books that I’m anxious to get out, but I didn’t mind reading it over and over again. Sometimes, you can just get tired of seeing the same material. But I fell in love with these characters. I feel like I know them. I’m now thinking about expanding their stories. I don’t know how just yet, but it’s a possibility.

I’ve already started to move on to my next project - The Crofton Triangle. I need time to work on this WIP. I have to make sure everything connects.

I’ve also made some updates to the Jinxed book cover. I think it stands out better now.

Update: Jinxed

Jinxed is now with the beta readers! Whoo hoo! Getting some good feedback coming in. 🌟🌟🌟 See below.

”This was funny, poignant and in the end a story of empowerment which is something that a lot of romance books fail at.”

“ I really loved this and you had me laughing out loud in places. They characters were well written and I could immediately connect with them and the lead Jinx was just fantastic. I liked that she had a group of friends that she could rely on and I hope they are all getting their stories in the future.”

 “You have a knack for creating rich and intriguing characters as well managing multiple plot lines.  Very well written and well done.”

I’m coming down the home stretch! I’m really happy with how this story turned out. I feel like I have some additional characters that could possibly get their own stories one day. 🥰

In all, I’m ahead of schedule.

2019 Summer 90-Day Challenge Last Update

🤯 After I came back from Detroit and I had that bad toothache I never got back on schedule with my three summer goals. 😩

As for editing and revising Jinxed I’m on the last one third of chapters. It has some further rounds of editing and revising to go before it gets to the beta readers. I’m somewhat behind on my schedule. 🤦🏽‍♀️

I don’t eat as much sugar. I’m still working on this because this is a long term health goal that will never go away. Minimizing eating sugar is important to my overall health.

Lastly, I stopped making IGTV vids. I’m more focused on podcasting. Despite the fact, I love the video medium perhaps it’s not the right platform for me considering how I feel about social media. 🤷🏽‍♀️

I’m not disappointed. I did achieve one of my goals which was to finish the first draft of Jinxed. And now I’m also done doing the first round of edits. That’s an accomplishment. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Jinxed - (update)

As usual, I’ve fallen off on updating my blog. lol I actually expect it from myself. It’s cool. I figure, I’m here now.

I’ve been very busy editing and revising my latest WIP - Jinxed. I hope to get it to the beta readers by mid September. I’m looking at a November publishing date. We’ll see.

It’s the Friday of Labor Day weekend. I’m at the beach. I plan to plant my feet in the sand, raise my face to the sun and allow God’s water to wash upon me giving me new life and energy.

It’s time I start my new life. Have a fulfilling weekend, loves!
