This is the man…

…who is currently responsible for all of my problems right now.  Well, not all.  A few, I guess.  Remember that little partial that I was complaining about for weeks?  And that I was too chicken to send off to my editor directly so sent it to my agent first?  Being the super-woman-super-agent that she is, got back to me the same night with a reply…

She loved it-but felt the first few pages weren’t necessary.  So she suggested I re-work the opening, but said it was just a suggestion.  Of course, I went and flipped open the document, re-read it, and thought, D’OH! why didn’t I think of that??  She was so right.  I emailed her back and said of course I’ll change it-and have it back to you by the end of the week.  I guess tomorrow is technically the end of the week.  This is going to be a short post, because well, I need to get back to this.

As I was reading through the first few pages again, all I kept thinking was how could I have missed that the opening of this book was really just the thoughts and inner musings of this man?  I’ll tell you why-he’s very charming.  Deceptively charming.  And he says and thinks a lot of very clever things.  And quite handsome.  I think I had a little too much fun writing him.

So now, he makes his appearance on page 4…and we begin with action-because my heroine is a force to be reckoned with herself. This proposal will be officially gone again as of tonight.  And then I really will be heading back to that other, um, book that my agent asked about…

      Yes, they’re both very demanding characters, so totally fighting for centre stage! :-)
