The Hardest Part of Writing For Me
For me, the hardest part of writing a book is getting past that point where I lose my groove. That point where I go, hmm, what next? Years ago, that would mean that manuscript would be put aside in a folder on my computer with the words: incomplete. Now, as I take this journey of writing more seriously, it means I have to find away to get past this point.
One thing that has helped me is I decided to write novellas instead of novels. I wrote a novel about three years ago. It’s an 80,000 word book, it took me two years to write it, six months to edit it, and since then it’s been in a corner. It’s overwhelming at that size.
So, when novellas became the new rage, I decided to try my hand at this. Amber’s Muse was created in about a two month period. It was more a hobby, I worked on it here and there. I hit that tough point once while writing it. I took several days away from it, and then I knew what to do. I knew where the story needed to go. Then, I completed it.
I think all authors, even those bestsellers, have something that makes their job hard for them. I dislike hitting that brick wall when writing, but sometimes I think it’s good. It gets me to walk away and think. My computer probably likes the time too, its gets to rest.

By day Amber’s a librarian, and by night she hides away writing erotic romance novels. She has just one problem—not enough sexual experience to pull from. A recent steamy dream leaves Amber wondering if her neighbor Jax might be just the guy who can help her. He seems almost perfect to use as a sexual guinea pig, especially since she doesn’t have to worry about falling in love with him.
Jax has lived next door to Amber for a year and has tried everything he can think of to get her to notice him, but it hasn’t worked. Until recently. When Amber approaches him asking for his help, he’s ready to jump on board. When he learns exactly what kind of help she needs, he’s definitely willing.
Becoming involved with someone like Jax simply isn’t an option for Amber. He barely works, can’t manage his money, and has no ambition in life. So why does he suddenly seem so right for her?
