I really enjoy writing about anything medical related and being a registered nurse for many years has filled my head with all kinds of interesting stories.
In the upcoming months, I will be releasing a three-part mystery series about an Orthopedic Surgeon who leads a secret double life that wreaks all kinds of havoc, especially with her patients. Part one is completed and being reviewed by several literary agents, and part two will be complete by mid-February. Part three should be done by the end of May.
It takes me approximately 10 to 12 weeks to complete a novel, but the editing, formatting, book cover etc. takes about the same amount of time. In total, it takes about five months to have a finished novel that is ready to share.
Once I’ve completed a novel, then I have to decide when it should be released. So, I’ll ask you…would you prefer to wait and have all three novels available to read, or should I release the first one and then stagger the second and third? Decisions, decisions!
Here’s a paragraph from Part I – STONE ADDICTED
Dr. Lila Stone rolled over in the hotel bed and gazed at the naked man that lay beside her. His name was Ted, or Teddy something. Teddy, the chief executive. Teddy, the one-night stand. Tagging her temporary lovers with their profession, or some other memorable detail, was the only way she could avoid the embarrassment of forgetting their names when the encounter was over. It was 3 am and time for her to leave. She watched Ted sleep for a minute, and then carefully slid to the edge of the bed. She glanced back to make sure she hadn’t disturbed him and then carefully rolled off. She would probably never see him again, and he didn’t know her name or have her phone number, though she had collected his business card, just in case.
