Thanks to all the kind comments about my cold-thing. I'm feeling better. Still vocally weak and raspy, but the throat swelling and pain is gone.
TMI? Moving on, right...
Worked on my new book today. I have this cool program, Scrivener, a true author tool for Macs. I've never found author tools to be much help, but this one makes organizing thoughts and plotting easy. You can color code and label index cards per point of view, or whatever. You can even write the book in Scrivener then export to Word.
So, I'm having fun.
I really wanted a cool opening line. I've become particular about them. They should, IMHO, reflect the theme or some point of the story. And, thanks to Jesus, i did come up with a great opening line. That was enough to get me going through the opening scenes.
Yesterday I outlined as much of the books as possible - beginning, middle and end - but we shall see if I have enough or too much story. I never know until I get into the book if I need to more research or character development.
Love Starts With Elle is doing well, I think. That's to all who blogged and/or reviewed. It just came out and is already in a second printing!
Look on my home page to see the book trailer.
