My good friend and colleague Madelyn Ford has posted two wonderful pieces on pre-editing. They can be found here and here.

A little over a week has passed since submitting Lost Wages of Sin (Book #1 in the Hellfire Series) to Samhain. I hate this part, which is no surprise since I'm no good at it. I've already bemoaned the fact to my crit partners and friends, but patience is definitely not my virtue. In the meantime, I have started working again on "Blackout" and hope to have it complete - or at least somewhere near complete - by the end of the year. I'm doing my best not to start work on the second Hellfire book until I receive word on the fate of the first. In the meantime, I have two active WIPs and a handful of other ideas to keep me occupied.

Likewise, I believe I’ll start writing short Dante/Ava stories once the fate of Lost Wages of Sin has been decided. Hopefully, readers will fall in love with them as I did.

I've also decided to compile a list of my current favorite books and their authors.

Recommended Reading

Book: Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between
Author: JA Saare
Buy Link: http://www.eternalpress.biz/book.php?isbn=9781770650145
Author's Website: http://www.jasaare.com/
Reason: The author’s voice and wit, her characters, and the OMG! ness of the end. Ms. Saare creates such vivid worlds and fills them with real people. She is likewise not afraid to push boundaries and comfort zones. There aren’t enough words for how much I love this book.

Book: Lucifer’s Daughter
Author: Eve Langlais
Buy Link: http://www.liquidsilverbooks.com/books/lucifersdaughter.htm
Author's Website: http://www.evelanglais.com/
Reason: Creativity, characters, and voice. Also, Satan’s parenting skills are hi-larious. This book definitely works as a standalone, but from the way it left off, I’m anticipating another…highly anticipating. I’ve also put this author on my TBR list, and from the looks of things, I have a lot of catching up to do.

Book: Coercion
Author: Lux Zakari
Buy Link: http://www.lyricalpress.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_12&products_id=315
Author's Website: http://luxzakari.com/
Reason: This novel is an emotional rollercoaster with an ending that I began praying for halfway through. The unexpected happy ending. Ms. Zakari killed me over and over again, and though there were definite assholes and general people you didn’t like in the story, no one came across as two-dimensional. I could fully sympathize with every character.

Book: 666 Angel Lane
Author: Lori Green
Buy Link: http://www.lyricalpress.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3_31&products_id=300
Author's Website: http://twooldfartstalkingromance.blogspot.com/
Reason: This book made me laugh and cry, not to mention kept me on the edge of my seat. How can you turn a reality-TV program into a battle between life-and-death, good-and-evil, heaven-and-hell? Read and see. You will not regret it.

Book: Down in Flames
Author: Sarah Ballance
Buy Link: https://www.nobleromance.com/ItemDisplay.aspx?i=136
Author's Website: http://www.sarahballance.com/index.html
Reason: Just the WOW factor. Brand new author with an emotionally rich story and vivid characters. She’s gotten her second contract, and it’s not hard to see why.
