A New Series

Good Monday morning. I hope your weekends' were filled with fun, frolic and family.
It rained here all weekend so I got lots and lots of work done. Yay me!

Thank you all who decided to throw your hats into the ring to beta read for me. I appreciate it. Truly, more than you'll ever know.

And for all of you who want to kill me for letting Genna & Pete's date end on a bad note, HA! you were punked. Of course I can't tell you what happens but what I can tell you is Pete will have his own words put up right here on this little blog of mine.

I'm taking a page out of the lovely E.Elle's blog and doing a series of character sketches called IN THEIR OWN WORDS. (I hope you don't mind I stole your title Darling, it was just so perfect.)

Pete, Tony, Uncle Sally, Aunt Fortuna, Genna, maybe even Robby and Angie will show up and tell you their story and how it involves Genna. I hope you all stop by and take a look. I'm starting this Wednesday with Pete and will continue to post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday, Anne! Glad to hear you got plenty of work done. I had a fairly productive weekend, too, but now I'm knackered!

Stephanie Thornton said...

I'm glad you got a lot done this weekend. It's been raining here for over a month so I've succumbed to the blahs. I might actually take a break from writing- I think I need one!

Liza said...

Looking forward to the character sketches.

You gotta take time to get stuff done. And give the brain a rest. Looking forward to whatever you have coming up next.

Hey Everyone, so glad you all stopped by today. I'm really excited about this new series. It sheds a totally different light onto my characters and I think it will for you too. I hope you all can take a gander.

Sounds like fun!

Ariel Swan said...

I can't wait to meet your characters!

The Words Crafter said...

This sounds great, I can't wait!!!

E. Elle said...

Ooh! E. Elle! That's me! Thank you for the shoutout, love. I will definitely be popping in to keep an eye on this series. And you didn't totally steal the title... you varied it by adding "Own." ;o) Maybe this will start an "In Their Words" movement or something. Coolio.

Good luck!

Looking forward to it!

Jen said...

Oh my gosh you are kidding me?! I'm so EXCITED!!! I love E. Elle's In Their Own Words!!! In fact I've been thinking about playing along myself... Hmm I think you're on to something Anne!!!

I can't wait to see some awesomeness!

Donna Hole said...

Looking forward to the series Anne.

So how did your beta search work out? Got what you needed. I'm not too bad at comma's and the like - everyone has their own opinion - but I must brag about my POV skills.

If you're still in need, let me know.

This is a great exercise. I'm looking forward to reading what your characters have to say.

Michele Emrath said...

What a great idea for a series. You know what you should do? When you finish, tap someone else...Then they have to pick up the series and really push themself to get into their characters' head. I'll be reading here this week! (Sorry it's been so long.)
