Worked a little on the graphic novel yesterday, trying to fine-tune the character looks, (Ivy is being difficult) but mostly it was Rachel and Trent in her backyard discussing things in book nine. I’m liking this book a LOT, but I find I’m in a quandary. Over book eight, Trent and Rachel start to redefine their relationship. (Relax, there are more kinds of relationships other than hate and sex.) Trent has shifted his focus and some of his reactions are still based in his old frame of mind. I’m torn between rewriting what he does to keep him true to his new outlook, or work with his character shift and have him realize he’s making old decisions and have an “ah-ha!” moment to highlight that.
I think I decided just this moment to have an “ah-ha!” That would work _perfectly!_ Why didn’t I see that before?!?
And now my day is tons better. Thanks guys. 😉 And that’s what it’s all about–taking a trouble spot and making it the highlight. I wish all of them were this easy . . . 😉
This week is also the release of Jocelynn Drake’s DAWNBREAKER, number three in her dark day’s series. If you’ve read Drake, you know how deliciously bloody her vampires are, and if you’ve not yet found her work, you’re in for a treat. There’s more info at our publisher’s blog, The Next Chapter
