So I have a title for Ensyang's story...

I finally managed to take a breather from work and continued my sequel to Finding Mr. Write, with Ensyang's story, tentatively titled Loving Mr. Wright. Right now, I'm at 13,000 words and I'm several chapters behind and in advance.

What do I mean?

Most of the time, when I write, the scenes just come to me and I have to write them down. They are insisting to be written in that way, and the characters won't have it any other way. So what I do is adapt the scenes to fit the flow of my story.

But the problem is, the scenes come to me in bits and pieces. For example, I just wrote the first part of the epilogue. Yes, you got that right, the epilogue. I have an idea of what the story is, but I'm still figuring out how to get there and how to make it believable. I cannot force a scene and I cannot force my characters to do this or that. The way I write, it has to come naturally to me. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but based on experience, the words sound all wrong when I try to force it.

And before that epilogue, I'm on the verge of finishing a mischievous scene that Marcia and Beatrice had concocted. But I know I still have to work on the relationship, and the issues between them, and make Ensyang and the delicious Mr. Wright's clashes more real. So stay tuned because I am determined to finish this soon. :)

In other news, I have a Goodreads fan page! Whoever is the good soul who made it for me, thank you! If you've read, or want to read, Finding Mr. Write, please add my book to your bookshelf :) My Goodreads

Have a happy week ahead, everyone!

On the path to fulfilling a dream

I hope you were able to follow the blog tour of Sizzling: Buqo Steamy Reads Volume 1!

Since this is my first story out, I was so very nervous about the reviews. I've gotten some pretty encouraging feedback, which is inspiring me to write Ensyang's story. Hopefully I'll have that out this year.

In the meantime, take a bite out of the blog features for Finding Mr. Write from the following lovely authors. Thank you, ladies, for taking the time to read and review my short story :)

If there are others who want to read, and review, my short story, please let me know. Also, due to its 'steamy' content, this book is recommended readers 18 years old and above.

And since I had some free time earlier today, I was able to sit down and write a couple of pages for Ensyang's story! You don't know how excited I am to write about her. I initially started writing about Beatrice, but Ensyang was asserting her right to be second (lol). Plus, Beatrice is happily married, and I don't really want to mess that up, because despite my heartaches, I still believe in love ever afters and forever marriages. Heh.

Say hello! :)

One hot romance coming up!

Last Valentine's Day, I finally submitted the draft of my short story for our #buqosteamyreads class (check out our thread on Twitter!) and I am so excited to announce that it will be out soon. I hope it will be out by March, and you can check back here for announcements and possibly, cover reveal and the synopsis. :)

The short story will only be sold via Buqo for one year, so if you don't have the app yet, download it on your iOS device now. The Buqo app will be out on Android in March, and I for one am very excited for that development.

Have a nice day, everyone!
