I'm Workin' on It!
Being two people is tough, and lately, Maggie took a back seat while Peg worked on her upcoming release. Yesterday, I went back to being Maggie and took up the 3rd Trailer Park Tales book, Third Crime's the Charm. I had done a rough draft and then set it aside, which I find is very helpful, though sometimes scary: "What? I actually wrote this? What was I thinking?"
In addition to Peg's book, Maggie got ahead of herself when her idea for Cutest Little Killer came along. I try to finish one series before starting another one, but sometimes the muse does what the muse wants. CLK was lots of fun to write, and from the readers' response, I expect there will be more of those. NOTE: This is why I will never be a household-name type writer. I can't write endless stories with the same characters, even if I like them a lot.
So. Yesterday I went back to the rough draft of Third Crime's the Charm, and I was happy to find that, yes, I still like it, and surprise! It's closer to being done than I remembered.
That doesn't mean it's imminent for readers. My first-draft beta reader hasn't even seen it yet, and from there it goes through two different editors and my brain many more times.
If you're waiting, I'll tease you a little with a mock-up of the cover. .what do you think?
