Author Alison Bliss, a totally rocking writer and best critique partner on the planet, invited us to participate in the My Writing Process Blog Tour. So here we are. Alison's romance, Rules of Protection, will be released by Entangled Publishing in the summer of 2014. Check out her website here: http://www.authoralisonbliss.com
Our romance novels: Pieces of Perfect, Sex Snob, Picking Up the Pieces, and novella Perfectly Ever After are all available for download on Amazon. And don't forget to follow us on Facebook. We get into all kinds of shenanigans on there!
Okay, here are a few questions we were asked to respond to.
1) What am I working on?
We're beginning to plot out our fifth book. It will be a slight departure from the characters we normally write. A little lighter in the sarcasm, but the humor will still be there. And our hero is going to be a hot as sin doctor.
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
We're different in that we don't seem to fit into a particular genre. We don't follow conventional romance guidelines, and we're not quite explicit enough for erotica. We actually kind of pride ourselves on thinking outside of the box and giving readers a unique reading experience.
3)Why do I write what I do?
Because we're dirty-minded little minxes. We're both very sarcastic and love to laugh, so the humor in our books flows naturally. And sex is a natural element in most adult relationships, so to write without it seems lacking in vital details. But mostly, we write what we'd love to read.
4) How does your writing process work?
We plan out a few chapters at a time and then divvy them up. Once one if us completes a chapter, we edit the other's work. We write on Google Drive so that we can work on a document simultaneously. We go back and forth with comments until we're satisfied with the product. Next we share it with a critique partner or two and revise it again. After we edit in Drive, we print the manuscript in hard copy. Then it’s out to our beta readers, back to us for one more set of edits, and then out to the reading public!
And that's our writing process! Now we want to introduce you to our author friends who will be discussing their writing process next week on March 24th. Hope you love them as much as we do!
Thanks for stopping by!
