After 3 months of re-writes I’ve finally finished the 3rd draft of book #2. I’m exhausted, my brain is mush, and suddenly everything sounds like Chinese. Oh and I spent ten minutes trying to peel my inspection sticker off of the front of my windshield. So yeah, I think it might be time to take a break. So now I’m just prepping it before I send it off to my first group of beta readers meaning the next couple of weeks will be full of anxious nail biting and temporary nervous ticks. Because it’s different and I’m not sure yet if it’s in a good way. It’s dual POV, like my first book, the narrators are similar ages as well, and there’s a similar South American influence. But it’s violent, I was also much more liberal with my expletives, and overall it’s the darkest thing I’ve ever written. The romance is also much more subdued, which might turn some people off. But I had to be honest–on behalf of the characters, of their experiences, of the social issues I touch on. And hopefully that will be enough. But I’ll find out soon!
