Days four and five
Friday, July 25th, 2008

Here’s some happy news before I whine about my lack of progress today. During one of my many procrastinating surfs I found a new review of Sin’s Gift from Paranormal Romance reviewer, Sonya Harrison. Here’s a snippet. Follow the link for the full review (and of course, be sure to read the excerpt on my website!): Review for Sin’s Gift

“Delilah Devlin is her signature self with this novella. Hot love scenes and strong characters pull the reader into the story immediately. Paranormal elements are neatly woven into the story and well-timed comedic quips bring the characters to life. This novella seems to set the stage for other stories to follow as more is revealed about the body snatching demons on earth. Readers will be left begging for more and will no doubt want to read more about Sin and Jake’s on and off-duty escapades.”

Cool, huh? I especially liked the part where it said, “[DD] is her signature self,” which got me to thinking if the rest hadn’t been great someone who didn’t like me could read it to mean something very negative, like “DD is her signature self, dishing raunchy, pointless sex interlaced with ridiculous flights of fantasy,” or some such.

Whew! I survived to write another day. Which gets me back to the fact I wrote one bloody paragraph today. AND I wrote only five yesterday. What gives? I think I need to get to a printer and get my pages on paper, then take scissors to them and re-arrange the paragraphs. I just can’t visualize it without my great big screen.

So, I’m not going to beat myself up because it would only frustrate me more. Since I have two more days of my retreat I’m going to concentrate on brainstorming two more projects that are on the horizon. Those of you on my chat loop got a hint of what those two will be. Not sure yet whether one of them is a Harlequin Blaze or an Intrigue, but I suppose I will know when I start to write the opening pages whether I can dampen my enthusiasm for the sensual side of the story. *snort*

    Great review! You know my opinion on which line! *cackle* You can’t write anything less than scorching hot.

    Lunch was fun yesterday! No one said a word about me wandering back into the office after 2 1/2 hours! *cackle*
