What story I’m currently working on:
The pace remained slower this week, mostly because I also had other things in the mix, but I did reach 20k in Of Alchemists and Arsonists, so either the halfway point or more in this final Whitfield Files book! I’m having a lot of fun with the book. Belle and Nate are both saccharine sweet, and it’s so much fun to see Ellie and Theo in action again, especially since the big bad of this book will tie the whole series together.
What I’m editing/marketing:
Well, I slammed through a lot of the content edits for Tempting Ballad far faster than I thought I would.Which means I’m ticking away at the line edits, and I’m nearing closer and closer to be able to send it out for submission. I know at least by the end of March, that book will be sent out, which makes me really happy. It’ll be great getting things out there again. Last year set me back a bit with projects that are waiting to find homes and ones that are waiting a few years to be able to release. So I’m hoping to get some books out this year and a few more lined up for release next year to pad things out. We shall see!

Line of the week:
Belle took one more sip from her mug and placed it on the countertop. “Thank you for the tea and the chance to dry off. I’d best be off before I’m lulled into a sense of complacency.” She unrolled her sleeves and her trousers before slipping her shoes back on. She could feel the press of Nate’s gaze on her, and she wanted to look back, desperately.
“You know the offer still stands,” he murmured, an undisguised concern in his voice. What she wouldn’t do to remain here in the warmth of his apartment.
“You’re a blessing, but I’ll be testing my mettle on the streets tonight,” Belle responded, her heart thumping harder in her chest. She rested her hand on the cool doorknob. “Thank you.”
At that, she strode out into the corridor. She hadn’t gone three paces when the chill from outside began to set in and her skin braced for a night of icy, permeating rain.
