My Writing Process Blog Tour

I’m super excited to be part of the My Writing Process Blog Tour. A huge thanks to Maegan Provan for inviting me to participate. Please stop by and check out Maegan’s blog. It’s full of lots of goodies like writing tips, music, snippets from her Night Touched series, and other good stuff. On to the Q&A…

What am I currently working on?

I’m finishing up my final round of edits on Better Than Perfect, a contemporary novel for the New Adult audience. Here’s the blurb:

Twenty-three-year-old Karlie is in the type of rut some people never escape from. With few friends, no boyfriend, and no plans to graduate from college any time in the immediate future, Karlie is as stuck in her ways as the elderly neighbor she spends all her time with. When her world is invaded by two surly twins bound for criminal court, a too-good-to-be-true love interest, and a cute cop who keeps showing up at the most inopportune moments, Karlie can either fight against the changes in her life, or embrace them. 

As soon as Better Than Perfect is formatted and published, I have a couple of projects I need to work on. Sweet Sorrow is a teen romance that’s a little less than halfway through the first draft. I also have a burning need to work on the sequel to The Seance. I have a rough idea of where I’m going with it, but have barely begun working on it.

How does my work differ from others in its genre?

This is a really tough question because I write across multiple genres. I’m not sure that if my books really differ from other books in their genres, but like all authors, I put my heart and soul into writing it, and so it bears my unique stamp.

Why do I write what I write?

I tend to skip from genre to genre because I write what I like to read–which is everything. I feel like my books are moving away from the fantasy/paranormal categories. I seem to be gravitating toward contemporary books, but that’s okay. I’m sure I’ll return to my beloved fantasy some day soon.

How does my writing process work?

I wish I knew… My writing process seems to involve a lot of procrastination. Once I buckle down and begin to write, I tend to be a pantser, meaning I do not employ an outline. Sometimes I don’t know how a book is going to end until I’m ready to finish. Some people think the seat-of-your-pants is the lazy approach, but I enjoy surprising myself.

Now it’s time to pass the torch to a couple of bloggers I adore:
