I suppose I probably did. Since Glynn believes I’m incapable of keeping a secret – of course, at the time he suggested as much, I’d just revealed one of his to a relative stranger – no, I’m not going to share it in the blog – okay, here it is: he writes almost all of the sex scenes in our stories. I make suggestions but I find myself too embarrassed to pen the sentences – so I doubt if I’ve kept any secrets from you. Not that my writing goals for 2016 were a secret.
By the way, I wish you could have seen the look that guy gave Glynn, when he heard that my sweetie wrote the sexiest bits of our novels and novellas. From the expression in his eyes, it was as if he thought Glynn was PERFORMING the naughty bits twice nightly, five days a week, in an off-strip Las Vegas dive. I wanted to laugh. Glynn didn’t find it as amusing as I did.
Come to think of it, I don’t believe our new neighbor has come over to visit even once since we had that conversation. But I see I’ve drifted off-topic. Again.
I intended for One Bride for Seven Brothers: The Fourth Brother to come out in late May, which was optimistic but no one would become a writer if they didn’t swim in the Sea of Optimism. My rose-colored glasses fit very nicely, thank you, unlike my real glasses, which are pinching my nose. Hoping for the best wasn’t quite enough when it turned out that we couldn’t stop adding to the story, then we had all those weeks enjoying our amazing visitors, plus cuddle time with wonderful babies, plus I fell down and broke, so a publication delay was almost inevitable.
For us, the really good news is that the end is in sight. There is a really, really good chance that the story will be out before the end of August, since I’m working on the final edit right now. I may be coughing and wheezing (darn bronchitis), but I intend to get this done.
If you want to know the moment we hit print, subscribe to our newsletter thingie. If you’d like to know almost-as-soon but you’ve had your fill of newsletters, I’ll share the scoop with you here.
For now, I’d best pick up my red pen and get back to work. Glynn is relaxing right now, but he’ll be busy soon. I’m going to tell him the story needs another sex scene or two.
