I changed several things as I went along. I started in third person (Mandy went out), but switched to first person in the middle of the first draft (I went out). It’ll be a more personal story that way. I also write scenes from another women’s viewpoint, then decided to cut all those, or to rewrite them from Mandy’s viewpoint (she’s the main character). I also visited a Cuban grocery store, home to much of the action, and realized that I seriously needed to change my perception of the place.
Anyway, the work goes on. But while I’m working on THE OFFERING, I received a box of ARCs (advanced reader’s copies) of my newest release FIVE MILES SOUTH OF PECULIAR. This book doesn’t officially release until June, but since I have a box of reader’s copies, I plan to hold a contest soon and give a few books away. So stay tuned . . .
What’s PECULIAR about? It’s about three sisters, but these gals are nothing like the three sisters in THE FINE ART OF INSINCERITY. Peculiar is set in a fictional small town called, naturally, Peculiar, and it’s located up in the Florida panhandle. If it were really located anywhere, that is, that’s where you’d find it. 🙂
I put together a little trailer about it, and you can watch it below.
So stay tuned for more information on how you can get an advanced readers’ copy of Peculiar! 🙂
