The other day, after sending Tri Mates to my editor and hitting the wall with Sword and Crown, I picked up an idea for a quickie. It’s an old idea, a cliche even. But a cliche is something we like for a reason. Anyway, I picked it up and wrote it in just a few days. I got to bring the characters to Lake Cushman here in Washington, a place that’s so beautiful I think it demands inclusion in a storyline.
Anyway, it’s to my beta readers and off to my editor hopefully early this week. Writing something that is 12 thousand words is very different than writing 65 thousand. More intense. I had to cut back my beloved secondary characters and just focus on Tess and Trevor.
The result is Unexpected. Yes, I mean it was unexpected but that’s the title, too. I like it.
