I finally finished the edits on RED. I am sending it off to have a couple people read it, then it’ll go to the editor for a final look. I cannot wait to have this book behind me. It started off at 88,000 words and now sits at a little over 94,000. Believe it or not, I chopped a lot! But I am the type of editor that always ends up with a higher word count than I started with, even if I cut fifty pages out of a book. I’ve learned to live with it. 😉

Anyway, Red will be released next month sometime. My guess is towards the end of the month. A perfect gift for Halloween. *ggg I will be releasing five titles over the next three months. The batch of releases will give me time to work on my next YA. I’m looking forward to it.

On a completely separate note, I picked FRIGID out of my TBR pile. I bought it after reading a recommendation in the Romantic Times Booklover’s Magazine. It’s the type of story that once you pick it up, it’s very difficult to put down. I was reading until three in the morning. I haven’t finished yet–thanks to the snail’s pace with which I read–but I am LOVING it. Jennifer Armentrout/J.Lynn is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. If you haven’t read anything by her yet, definitely check her out.

  1. It is always an indicator of how much I’m enjoying the book being read by a slowing down of pace.

  2. Bernard, I hear you. I’m currently reading two of them and quite enjoying the stories. So it’s a nice change of pace. Just waiting for my Mum and Dh to get back to me with their thoughts on Red. 🙂
