The Darkest Seduction (and Good News Friday)

So, I told you how I'd written the first two chapters of Paris's story -- then chucked them.  Told you how I started again.  Wrote two more chapters.  Well, last night I chucked those and wrote a new chapter one :) Today I'm going over that chapter and hope to write #2.  And this time I have a very clear picture in my head, so all should be well. Plus, I talked to my oh, so amazing editor and we worked through some problems I (cough Paris cough) was having.  

 

And I am…

Pirating

If you've ever illegally downloaded a copy of a book, thought about illegally downloading, posted an illegal download, or sold an ebook, please read this.  Torrents can kill an author's career, and sadly, it's only been getting worse.

The Darkest Seduction and a Darkest Secrets snippet

Monday I wrote chapter 1 of Paris's story, and I was happy with it.  Yesterday I wrote chapter two.  I struggled with that chapter two for hours -- and hours.  Something was bugging me.  Big time.  But I didn't know what it was, what to do, or where I'd gone wrong.  Until last night.  I started in the wrong place with the wrong tone.  So, I'm ditching both chapters and starting from scratch.  

 

One day, after the book's release, I will post both of those chapters so you guys…

Manga Lords

So many of you asked, so I thought I'd post a new blog about this rather than stick the answer in an old thread.  The publisher says there are no plans as of yet to make English/manga versions of the Lords of the Underworld.  I'll be praying that changes, and will let you know if it does!!

Note from Gena

If you enjoyed one of my books, I would be beyond grateful if you took a moment to post a review somewhere online to help other readers discover it.  The review can be as long or as short as you want.  

Thank you so much!
