This is it! This week I’m wrapping up revisions to my next book and will send it to my editor on Friday.
The tentative publication date is April 2010, and I’m still dabbling with possible titles. I think I’ve mentioned before that my working title is Halfway to the Stars from that old Frank Sinatra song, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” All along I’ve known that title will not work for Harlequin’s American Romance line, so I’ve been pondering.
I had come up Wanted: One Mommy and was quite happy with it, even though it’s from the hero’s daughter’s point of view and none of the story is actually told from her point of view.
Yesterday I had one of those “ta da!” moments and I think either Wanted: One Family or Wanted: A Family will be much, much better. Those titles are from the heroine’s point of view, which makes more sense.
Even though the final decision isn’t mine, it’s nice to be able to suggest a couple of realistic possibilities.
If you have an opinion, I'd love to hear it.
On the personal front, I often get together with my good friend and critique partner, Rachel Goldsworthy, on Friday afternoons. We meet in the upstairs loft a little Irish-style pub for some writerly chat and a glass of wine. This Friday I’ll have something to celebrate!
This photograph of me and Rachel was taken a couple of Fridays ago. It's an outstandingly bad picture of me, but I’ve been promising a glimpse of my new hair cut and am finally following through.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
Until next time,
