Project: Hold Me Now

So, what have I been up to?

Well, among other things, I’ve been writing a novel that isn’t really a romance story. I don’t do romance stories. I vastly prefer emotionally wrecking my readers.

I suppose you could say it’s a love story, although that’s a bit simplistic. As I said, I like to emotionally wreck my readers. This is less emotionally wrecking than other things, though.

It’s come out of my work that’s a kind of a study on the psychological impact of various aspects of fame. Specifically, the idea of how the stresses of constant press attention can disrupt and even destroy the lives of those under the microscope. I’m finding it fun, and a wonderful mental exercise.

At present, I can’t say when it will be finished, but that’s my primary project of focus for the moment. It’s coming along well, over half done, and then it’ll be off to Natalie for editing. I’ll let you know when that comes.

Cheers,

C
