"A ditty sung by a lark..."
When I started working on the Billionaire Spy Series, ten years ago, I wrote an invocation at the beginning of the book.
It was a sort of poem to my muse, if you will. That invocation allowed me to focus on the mood and the themes for the story. It literally worked like a charm.
(Maybe I'm a witch?🧙♀️🙀🎃🤣😘)
I've continued to write these invocations as I start each draft, though they are not printed in the books themselves. I thought I'd share them with you as an insight into my writing process.
The first invocation, "a ditty sung by a lark" was for Secrets and Seduction, the Billionaire Spy Series Book One.
The second one, "a revelry on the waves" is for Book Two which is currently in production and expected to publish in January of 2021. Keep an eye out for the formal announcement of the title and the cover reveal!
The third invocation, "a penillion in the cloud" is my current WIP (work in progress) for Book Three.
It's really coming along nicely (with a few aches and pains, and plenty of passion for the players). I plan to polish it and send it off soon.😉🤞🙌
My original drafts of two very long books—the saga of Mariana and Will—lay the foundation for the other adventures that I plan to write in this series.
I put Mariana and Will through hell in this series, TBH, but they get a well-deserved HFN at the end of every adventure, and are rewarded for all of it beyond their wildest dreams in their HEA. That's a promise! ❤️
