1. I have started on my third book *big grin* and I'm over 20,000 words after a month. It's a bit slow going for my liking but my next secret will reveal why. Anyway, I've decided to start sharing some bits of the first draft here with you guys starting this Monday. I hope you like it. This also means that I'll be cutting back my posts to maybe just twice a week cos the story is really calling me to finish it. What are the particulars? Below is a pitch I made to an agent recently.
What do you think? Sound interesting? Well, come in on Monday for the first installment, and remember, it's all about feedback, the harsher, the better. Like I do also, the first person to comment on any the WIP posts get their choice of the eBook of any of my previous novels.
Title: One Night Only
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Word count: 23,000 (so far)
Author: Myne Whitman
While in Nigeria, fiery Dunni is seduced by the perfect smile of local lothario, Babs, and starts a holiday romance. But their sizzling affair soon matures into something deeper as Babs proves he’s more than just a hot body. When Dunni finds out that he may have gotten someone else pregnant, will their fledgling love survive Bab’s decision to face up to his responsibilities?
2. I broke a bone in my left hand and it has been in a splint for the past week. Did you miss me on your blog? Did you see my comment but it was on the brief side? Now you know why. It takes me almost three times the usual time to type things with one hand. The technicians that wrapped up the hand warned me not to use it at all, and I'm trying. I was afraid I would be totally incapacitated but it's been manageable. Atala has been great, doing more around the house and he helped me type out some of my posts this past week (some were scheduled already).
I'll be seeing the orthopedics this week to find out if the fracture is healing well, or a full cast is required. Help me pray that I won't need the cast, this splint is driving me crazy with the weight, the dry skin, itching and all.
Have a nice weekend and see you on Monday. Mwah!
