As I anxiously await an exact release date from my publisher (the awesome Nicholas Grabowsky who came down with an appendicitis last week, big hugs and well wishes Nick!!!) I decided to put a little more elbow grease into my second book: His & Hers. Check out the description here so the rest of this post will make sense to you.
And let me tell you, this one’s a doozy for me. It’s really challenging me to flex my writing muscle in ways I never have before as I’ve set two rules for myself:
1. I want to get through the whole book without ever revealing to the reader the names of either the male nor the female in the couple the story revolves around.
2. I want to have the reader desperately trying to figure out which one of them is telling the truth. Very a la Gillian Flynn. My idol, by the way. I’ll bet you thought I was going to say E.L. James, didn’t you!? DIDN’T YOU!? I’ll sit in the corner here and pretend not to sulk…
I’m trying to develop a list of significant moments that could have been easily misconstrued by either character and work them into the story. Aaah, the delicate intricacies of physical intimacy. HA!
Stay tuned for more updates as I move further along on this project. If you’ve got any suggestions or comments please feel free to leave me one below!
And as always, thanks…
