#AuthorLife with Robin Bielman
Unfortunately, I can’t snap my fingers and magically produce a book. Bummer, right? Instead, it takes me a few months and the process looks something like this…
In the beginning, my fingers can’t type fast enough.
But being a pantser (meaning I don’t plot a lot and fly by the seat of my pants), about mid-way through the story, my characters don’t always cooperate and we both need a time-out.
Eventually we get on the same page again and shiny, wonderful new ideas emerge!
Then… You need more conflict, my awesome editor says in my head. (Yeah, not for the first time.) But I just want everyone to be happy! So, I procrastinate. (I’m really good at this.)
Eventually, I get my butt back in the chair and go through stages of thinking this book is awesome, this book is terrible, writing is too hard, I will never figure out commas, oh hey, that’s a good sentence and a good paragraph, maybe I don’t suck at this.
Until finally I type “The End” and it’s time to celebrate with a cupcake (or two)!

End of story.
Only it wasn’t. Pretty soon everywhere I turn, I see him. Our best friends are dating. My mother mistakenly—and happily—thinks he’s my plus-one to my cousin’s wedding. And he’s the guy I have to work with on the most important job opportunity of my life.
Here’s my problem: I like Levi. I like his killer smile and his dreamboat eyes and definitely the way he makes me feel in bed. But I’ve sworn off relationships. So when the sexual tension reaches epic proportions and we fall back into bed together, I tell myself it’s temporary. When I start to feel more, I tell myself it’s over.
Only Levi isn’t a forget-it kind of guy. When his lips are close to mine and he swears he’s always wanted me, my defenses disappear. But some things in life just aren’t meant to be.
Or are they?
