Writing a novel covers the spectrum of human emotion. From stark panic, to frustration, to pure euphoria. One day I can be struggling with the dreaded sagging middle, and the next day my fingers are flying over the keyboard.
Writer’s block is also a dreaded phenomenon, and it can result in frustration and depression. I’ve experienced a form of it. Whether I’m staring at a blank screen or an empty piece of paper, it can be crippling.
Thankfully, I’ve managed to overcome it. My characters speak to me, and I start writing. And writing some more. And then something wonderful happens. I finish the novel and do the snoopy dance and run around the house kissing my husband and kids in celebration. It’s one of the best feelings!
Here’s a blurb about HOW TO TEMPT AN EARL:
Forbidden pleasures are the most tempting…
London society is cruel for a young woman whose father is an avid gambler. Miss Grace Ashton is not one to stand idly by while her family becomes destitute. Donning a mask, she slips into the night and attends the infamous Raven Club to confront the proprietor. But nothing prepares her for the sinfully attractive and wealthy Ian Swift.
Ian is intrigued when Grace walks into his gambling club but refuses her offer of a few jewels to pay her father’s large debts. Unbeknownst to anyone, Ian has inherited the Earldom of Castleton, and he must reluctantly take his place in Society. But Ian’s manners as a gentleman have suffered. He needs a tutor, and he knows the exquisite lady standing before him is the answer.
But soon tutoring turns to flirting, which unfortunately lands both of them in…marriage?
