The Twist

Remember how I said I only get amazing ideas when I can’t write them down? It happens when I’m driving kids to and from school while listening to music, it happens in the shower, it happens when I should be sleeping. You get the idea.


Amelia secretly waiting for Gilbert...

The other day I was brainstorming “the twist” –  the one that I needed to throw everything back up into the air in my regency romance – the one that has you gripping the pages of your book in utter desperation to find out what in the world is going to happen. I was in the shower, thinking through the plot lines I’d drawn in my head when it came to me clear and simple.

Anyway, I had it. I clung to it so I wouldn’t forget how it all works together while hurrying to my computer. I wrote up a query to shoot off to one of the editors who has looked at some of my other work. I am hoping this is the story she’s looking for. Crossing fingers and looking forward to a few hours to write this baby!

      I will Jeanna! I’m a true fan of regency too. If you haven’t already done so, you should read Julianne Donaldson’s Edenbrooke. You will SWOON!
