I know I said I was writing a detective series set in Rhode Island. I still am. Kind of. I was side-tracked by a shiny new idea in late July that I just couldn't let go of.
It's a contemporary romance, set in Providence, with a magazine as the center of attention. The main characters are uniquely drawn from experience and out of thin air, as most characters should be.
Friends have said the story is timely and relate-able to modern day society, targeting women who are looking for the elusive Prince Charming.
Within the context of the novel, the main character has to develop articles for the magazine showing how easy it is for a woman over 40 to be struck by lightning than it is for her to find a man. I delve into some very interesting insights, old wives tales, and research for these articles, which several friends have read and concluded are "very authoritative." Fun stuff this.
I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of September. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the paperback should be out around Thanksgiving, with the e-book coming out at Christmas. (A rather unique marketing/publicity plan is in the works with this one.)
I'm very excited about this novel and will let you know when it's done. I'll be looking for readers/reviewers.
