The Omega Team: The Lighthouse….release day!

So excited to introduce my new series: THE SARICH BROTHERS, created in the Omega Team.

The Omega Team was created by Bestselling Author, Desiree Holt. I’m honored to be writing int this world about the 4 Sarich brothers, who join the Omega Team.

At 8pm tonight, I will be going live on Facebook, reading an excerpt.

I came up with the idea for this series while spending a few months in Jupiter, Florida. One of the first sight seeing things I did was climb the lighthouse. Beautiful view. The image on the cover is actually the Jupiter Lighthouse. The second thing I did was take a boat ride down Jupiter Sound with a tour guide and learned a lot about the houses on Jupiter Island and the history of the area.

One morning, while walking the beach and thinking about the story I’d create for the Omega Team, an idea hit me. I love reunion stories and thought how fun it would be to bring two people back together in this beautiful setting. I didn’t want it to be the kind of reunion story where the had bad blood, or broke up on bad terms. So, Logan and Mia became high school sweethearts who went their separate ways, both having dreams to chase…because they weren’t in love…or were they?

The big question I had to ask, was how do I get these two people together? Well, he’s ex-military, now working for the Omega Team and he’s been hired to protect Mia because her life is being threatened.

I had so much fun with Mia and Logan. Their chemistry is electrifying. They are fun and so at ease with each other from the beginning…but their is some history there…and of course, danger.

I hope you’ll pick up a copy at Amazon.

Who likes to Copyedit? Who likes to key in Copyedits? #amwriting #amediting

No one likes to copy edit, well, except those who are copy editors. Personally, I love story editing, which others call developmental editing. I like doing it for other authors and really enjoy when I get them back, ready to make the story better. But the editing after that? Just shoot me.

My process is simple. I write. I rewrite. I print and read. I rewrite. I send to beta readers. I rewrite. I send to a trusted beta editor. I rewrite. Then I send to a copy editor. I get it back, make changes that I agree with, then I print and go through again, where I find other mistakes. I red pen it, then key in the changes. The lovely thing about digital publishing is I can make those changes right up till the last minute (3 days before release day). So, this is what I did today.

Yep. That’s what final edits look like. And it took two days to key in all those changes. This is for DEADLY SEDUCTION which comes out 23 May 2017.

This is what after edits look like…

And tomorrow I will start on a read and rewrite of the first book in THE OMEGA TEAM: The Lighthouse. The first book in the SARICH BROTHERS series. This book comes out 19 June 2017.

As soon as I finish that one…on to finishing up WHEN A STRANGER CALLS while plotting either the first Adirondack book….OR I had an idea on a fireman series.

What do you think I should write?
