Hi there, Sugar here. I have been tagged by Xio Axelrod to blog about my writing process.
What am I working on?
At this very moment I am knee deep in revisions for GENTLEMEN PREFER CURVES the third book in my Perfect Fit series. Revisions are going surprisingly well. I shouldn’t jinx myself, but for the first time I don’t want to cry as I do them. But before that I was working on book three in my Redemption series. It’s way darker than my romantic comedies and can at times be a little difficult to write so it’s nice to take a break and revisit my funnier stuff.
How Does My Book Differ from Others in the Genre?
I write romantic comedies, and there are a million of them out there. In my Perfect Fit series all my heroines are plus sized/ curvy, which is different, but I think my voice is unique and sarcastic and funny. Some people don’t appreciate my snarkiness but a lot of people do.
Why Do I Write What I do?
Because I’m no good at writing regency romance. I’m too much of a realist for fantasy and I’m not clever enough to write mysteries.
How Does My Writing Process Work?
I still work full time, so I spend my nights and weekends writing. I’m not much of a plotter but I do know the major plot points before I start writing. I really love character driven stories, so I try to make my characters memorable and lovable or really awful people that readers love to hate. But I love for them all to be realistic and relatable in some way . I want to be friends with them.
So that’s it! What’s your process like?
