Finished My Fourth Movie Book: D.N.A.

Wow, it has been a rollercoaster ride since I signed with 711 Press. But I'm not complaining. Daniel Middleton and Jaime Vendera have been wonderful and it's been great having Jaime oversee my 711 projects. I honestly have never been pushed this hard to write, but thanks to Jaime and my wonderful editor Rich, I've been able to complete all three books in the Werecat Saga and my one-off D.N.A. in less than a year. For those of you who are new writers, I can honestly say that it definitely helps when you have a team that has input on your plotting and who can guide you every step of the way.

I've definitely become a much better storyteller thanks to Jaime. And having Rich on the team, all my stories are streamlined and polished. Speaking of editing, Nocturnal was cut by 8,000 words when it was edited, partly due to the 711 movie timeline requirements and also because I tend to ramble in my writings :) But I fixed it this time. Even after three final passes, I only wrote 300 extra words over the minimum requirements. Not that it's what I intended to do, but that's what this story called for. So, good luck editing, Rich, because you can only cut 300 words this time ;)
