Just a quick "works-in-progress" update from your friend who's a romance writer. I've been working a lot on the final draft of my holiday-themed romance THE EVERLASTING GIFT, which is scheduled to be sent to the publisher by the end of the month (yikes). I love the story, mostly because I love my main character, Sharleen Vargas. She's feisty but compassionate. She's very fun to write. Simultaneously, I'm working on my other holiday-themed romance PINE COVE LODGE. The ideas are overflowing for this one, so I might have to make some cuts, especially where a subplot is concerned. It is a bit strange writing wintry tales in August, but I love the challenge. More soon!
