Hi everyone. I'm so excited that you are all excited about my new series IN THEIR OWN WORDS. It's been a lot of fun to write and I hope you like it.
I want to put this disclaimer out there right now though. This is written, from what I hope, are my character's perspectives. In their own words. There is cursing, there is bad grammar, there is a lack of fluidity in the narration. It is by no means a first draft, I have drafted endlessly to get their 'voices' perfect, but I want to say right now, all of it will be rated
PG - 17 Strong language, adult themes
I hope that doesn't deter you from stopping by. Pete's post goes up tomorrow and will follow with a Monday Wednesday Friday posting schedule. I'll resume my regular posts after the series ends, sometime in the middle of August.
My reason for doing this series, is two-fold.
1) I didn't want to just leave the blogosphere so I could finish REMEMBERING YOU. I'd hate to lose all my friends and fans because I'm taking a break.
2) This was such a challenging exercise. I know it comes in the middle of writing the book, but I think I know my characters fully now. I could never have done this at the beginning. Now seems the perfect time.
So, I just wanted to let you know what was up. I hope you'll take every opportunity to get to know my characters better. It was a lot of fun for me. And hopefully, when we come to the other side of this, I'll be able to say, I'm finished with the book. (Wouldn't that be swell?)
I'll see you tomorrow.
