Greetings everyone! It's been awhile since I finished "Saving My Heart". I've been totally busy revising and preparing it to be submitted to agents/editors/publishers. I'm going to be attending several writing conferences, and am excited to be looking for a home for "Saving My Heart".
I've been adding several scenes during revision. There are parts I've added where Peter and Julie get more intimate. I've made it a "fade to black" in the Wattpad version, only because it needs to be PG13. But the revised version I've been adding give more spice to their relationship. Plus, I've noticed that I needed to draw in the fact her boyfriend's memories become a ghost in her relationship with Peter. I had to pull some of this angst into earlier parts of the story. A funny thing I found was that Peter's sister has three names. I decided on the first choice Samantha, after my dear kitty muse that passed away Dec. 8, 2015. It is my tribute to her. (Note: I am currently catless and I'm finding a lot of cats popping into my stories lately.)
Meanwhile, I'm still writing on Wattpad. I've started a Boys Over Flowers Fanfiction called "Firsts" in regards to the main character, a hot Asian billionaire named Joon-Pyu falling for a pop star named Tiffany Smith. You can guess roughly who she is based(Hint: Her music appears a lot through Saving My Heart.) ;-) I've been wrestling whether I want to keep the fanfiction tie going in "Firsts". So far, I've kept it. But it can easily be changed to a regular story with name changes. The characters are pretty basic tropes. It's similar to the fact Fifty Shades of Grey was a fanfiction for Twilight at first. Changing the names and characters later works really well. Fanfiction often just gets you started, and then you can morph it into you're own world and story later. Anything to get that first draft done, right? So, feel free to check it out below.

But now to the fun stuff! I'm participating in a Wattpad Block Party this month, Feb. 2016. I am scheduled with a Q & A interview on Feb. 8th! Please stop by the link below on that Monday, and you'll find out a little bit more about me. I write a lot of other stories that are available for your ereader through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I've got a box set on Amazon and Barnes and Noble called, Beware of Warlocks Box Set. And I just released an audiobook on Audible for my Beware of Warlocks series.
Here is the link to the Wattpad Block Party on Wattpad. Love to see you there!
I'll keep you updated on how things are going with this story. Please check back from time to time. I want to share the whole experience with you. After all, if it wasn't for Wattpad, I wouldn't have Saving My Heart now. Thanks for all of your love and support!
