Heyoooo! Hope everyone is doing well! Just a quick update on the writing process for Beach Thing and the Beta Reader Application that I put out last week.
First things first– I got an OVERWHELMING response to my request for betas! If you wrote to me, I responded so if you did not get an email from me, please let me know because I have not heard back from everyone. The email would have come from dlwhite [at] thesweetescape dot net.
If you need me to re-send because you still want to beta read, get in touch with me! If you plan to pass, no big deal!
Since I have more than enough applications, the process is closed for now but may re-open so stay tuned!
I estimate that I am about 75% of the way through Beach Thing… possibly more but I’m….pantsing a little bit right now so I’m not too sure. I have a general idea of what’s going to happen before my ending scene but at the same time, letting the prose and muse lead each other around. Overall, writing this project has been enjoyable– once I made it past the ‘this thing kinda sucks’ mark. I love my characters and the setting and what’s happening between them.
I’m a little nervous about timing since it’s going to be coming out probably late September. I don’t want it to be later than that because a summer beach romance in October……I don’t know how that’s going to go over and I was NOT waiting a year to put this out!
A few of my new betas and my writing pals are helping me with the finer details, something I am QUITE thankful, so THANK YOU. It takes a village and what-not.
I hope to update everyone soon with more progress on this WIP!
