Draft done, can rest a bit

October 15, 2011 - - 6 Comments


So, YA. The past few years I’ve been struggling to finish one, even though for years all I could ever write was stories for young adults.

The breakthrough came only this year, when I figured out that though my novellas were published as contemporary romances, I patterned them after the young adult romances I read so much of in high school. So I wrote the same way, I just made everyone younger.

And it seems to have worked. (Yay!) The “IGoL project ” draft is finished! Its proper title is Interim Goddess of Love and it’s off to editing now. Hope we can release it within the year!
