2nd Edits

(MLR) TLOM 1- Rules are Meant to be BrokenI have received, completed and sent back to C(MLR) TLOM 2-Living in Shadowshristie N at MLRPress 2nd edits on The Lines Of Marsden 3: You Make Me Die In Pieces. Not as many as I thought there would be. If I don’t have another round then it’s off to line edits.


What’s Going On…

B - HHI still have at least 15K to write on HH1: Harder & Harder To Breathe > I have been going through HH2: One Last Kiss Goodbye and making sure they mesh. I’m so close to finishing I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Though I have found out I really over use the word that… I’ve been through and changed a whole heap of them in HH2 and I’m sure I will have to do it for HH1.

B - TCCAs soon as I’m finished with HH I’ll be back onto finishing The Connelly Chronicles 2: Beautiful Goodbyes. We’ll learn more about the lives of Ray and Chris (Viv) Connelly and there ever growing family. I won’t go into too much detail as I wouldn’t want to spoil the read. I can’t wait to get back to writing this story as I love the dynamics of this family. They remind me so much of my own. Though, this time  I’ve promised my family I won’t use them for inspiration… Well I mostly won’t use them, because believe me some of their antics are funny as shit. I’ll leave you all guessing which parts are fictional and which parts actually come from my family.

Hollow’s Trouble [Edits]

NJNielsen-HT-Goodreads CoverToday I received, did, and sent back my first round of edits on my DRitC story: Hollow’s Trouble… to my editor Jennifer M over at MMRomance on Goodreads. I’m not sure if I’ll get second edits or if it will go straight to formatting—I’ll keep you all informed.

Now I’m back to working on Hidden Hearts 1: Harder & Harder To Breathe. As soon this is done I will send it and HH2: One Last Kiss Goodbye off to Fireborn Publishing.

Updates Galore

Updates on my writing… 

B - UD1) I have just done and sent back my first round of edits to MLRPress for The Lines of Marsden 3:You Make Me Die In Pieces.
2) I’m still waiting on edits for my DRitC Story Hollow’s Trouble… I hear the MMRomanceGroup are really backed up though so I don’t mind waiting. I think mine was one of the last ones to be submitted.
3) I’m half way through Hidden Hearts 1: Harder & Harder to Breathe. As soon as it’s done I’ll send it along with HH2: One last Kiss Goodbye to Fireborn Publishing.
4) I’m about a third of the way through The Connelly Chronicles 2: Beautiful Goodbyes for Totally Bound Publishing.
5) Found my missing notes for one of my stories Quaide’s Crossing 1: Meghan’s Way… seriously I had gathered them and put them all together in a folder labled with their series name… do you think I could find it? Nope. Turns out it was beside my computer the whole time. I had just forgotten that I had moved it all to the folder and it was fricken fluoro orange so how I missed that is beyond me.
PS: The picture of the bat is here for no other reason than because I love bats…

Formatting & Edits

10247310_1569603066657954_1667610901529016488_nI was reading a styling guide for one of my publishers and realised that for some reason I’ve been formatting my work for them wrongly. I always try and set my formatting correctly for each publisher. I think if I start my manuscript with the correct formatting then I won’t forget to do it before submission—believe me I have done it before and had the manuscript sent back because of that reason. When I submit the next two stories Hidden Hearts 1: Harder & Harder To Breathe, and HH2: One Last Kiss Goodbye.

B - HTI also heard from the MMRomance Group that I will be getting edits for my DRitC story: Hollow’s Trouble. sometime soon and it may take a month to get everything done before my story will be ready for release.

What’s Happening…

12.2Why is it when you are as busy as all get go, something comes along to throw you off track. I was totally keeping up with my writing schedule…Okay, maybe I was almost keeping up. I’m still working on The Connelly Chronicles 2: Beautiful Goodbyes… and Hidden Hearts 1: Harder & Harder To Breathe… I’ll be playing the catch up game for the next week so that I can finish on time… I have no doubt I will finish. When I get closer to the end of the month I will tell you what I will be working on for July.
