My gosh, this month seems to have flown! Of course, it could be because I've spent most of it wrangling my story into submission.
However, I'm over the moon to say that Rising Heat my contemporary romance is finally finished!
This story has been stopped and started for numerous years. I first came up with this idea when I walked into a hotel full of fireman. I immediately realised a story could be made from this and set about doing so.
There have been many ups and downs and redrafts (I'm already revising chapter one as I edit it!) but I'm finally feeling like it's on the right path and will be ready for all of you soon.
If you haven't seen the summary yet, then allow me to reveal it to you!
Neil Farris is your typical "love 'em and leave 'em" type. He's been told his biggest fear is commitment, but he's not bothered by it. He doesn't see the point of a long-term relationship. He either gets bored or his partners realise he's too bossy and scathing. It's easier to stick to one-night stands.
When his boring work conference in Brisbane sends him to the wrong hotel. He finds himself surrounded by gorgeous firemen. Luckily for him, one of them is gay and interested in a good time.
Scott Fields is everything Neil looks for in a fling. Gorgeous, good in bed and temporary. He's also nice and considerate, which is a bonus. It's a shame he only gets two nights with the fireman before he's returning home.
However, much to his surprise, he runs into Scott a few days later. It turns out they're both from the same town. When Scott asks him out Neil is hesitant, but agrees. He really isn't interested in dating or relationships. Can the sweet and sexy fireman change his mind?
It's been nice to write something set in Australia and to explore Neil's character and his resistance to relationships. Hopefully, I'll be able to get the final i's dotted and t's crossed so it can come out to you soon!
However, if you're already champing at the bit for a new story, don't forget Garden of Cupid is up for pre order and there's only a little over a week until it will be available! If you haven't already, grab a copy over at your favourite shop.
And also, keep an eye out for some fabulous prizes and events happening soon to celebrate the launch of Garden of Cupid! You might be the lucky one to win some goodies from all the authors in the "Love's Bloom" collection.
On top of that, I'm also hoping to bring some more free works to you soon and with Camp NaNoWriMo around the corner I'm hoping it will be the nudge I need to strike a few WIP's off my list.
Let's see how well the muse - and time permits me!
Until next time, take care! And don't forget, you can follow me on my other socials or send me questions. I'm always happy to answer them and chat.
