I'm Still Here

Holy Cow! You'd think I dropped off the face of the earth or something. There I was, doing a great job of blogging almost everyday, and then WAMMO! I stopped. What's up with that?

Here's the scoop. I'm in the middle of doing some MAJOR edits on "Taming the Heart", which includes changing that silly title. I've heard several suggestions in the past couple weeks on how I can make it better, so I'm diving in with both feet and fixing it. The biggest challenge is changing it from first person to third. What a mess. But I think the finished product will be worth it. I'm able to get into the other character's heads and add so much more depth to the story that the readers will love.

However, this means working on it 24/7 and I'm just about worn out. If anyone has a suggestion for a title, please don't hesitate to jump right in and comment on it. Here's a blurb about the book.In this tale of magic, mystery and forbidden love, Kira Edwards finds herself falling for a man who’s been cursed with the heart of both a lion and a tiger—a hybrid. His overwhelming desire to devour anything with a pulse causes him to put his feelings aside to keep her safe. However, the spicy little red head that’s captured his heart has other plans.

Kira thought she knew everything about her best friend, Lydia, until a brutal attack during a photo shoot leaves Lydia seriously injured and the two of them stranded on a secluded mountain. When Lydia refuses to let Kira go for help, Lydia is forced to reveal the fact that she’s from another world—a world filled with powerful magic and evil forces. Kira soon discovers Lydia’s sister, Shandira, is behind the attack and seeks to take Lydia’s life. To make things worse, Lydia summons her brother, Octavion, who blames Kira for the attack, almost killing her. When she volunteers to accept a healing charm, risking her life to heal Lydia, he finds himself not only fighting his primal hunger, but his unbridled feelings for Kira. The decision to stand by her friend, even though the world around her is falling apart, helps Kira embrace her inner strength, bringing her the confidence she needs to stand up to the forces that seek to destroy them all. Her quick witted sense of humor makes a wonderful contrast to Octavion’s explosive temper, causing both to give in to their only common emotion…love. Will that love be enough to suppress Octavion’s fierce desire to take her life? Or will Kira be able to tame the wild beast that lives within his heart?


  1. Kinda figured that was whatyou were up too. Losing first person isn't so bad, I'll get on it for first person Sparatn novel soon enough too. Sorry I don't have a title but I'll think on it

  2. I don't have a title thought either, but wish you tons of luck in your rewrites! It's tough, but you'll be glad you did it.


  3. The story sounds very intriguing. I'd like to know more about it--especially the tiger hybrid thing. =] As for titles, I suck at those. =[ Sorry.
