First Draft finished!

That's right! Tonight I finished the first draft of my book, "The Art of Love".

It is a real thing with a beginning and an end and everything!

Honestly, I'm really proud of myself but I also know that the hard work has only just begun. I've got so much stuff to do before the book can be unleashed on the world.

Speaking of unleashing, I have some other announcements.

First of all, the book has a release date - 18th June 2013!

Second, I will be unveiling the cover sometime in the next week so stay tuned for further details. I'll also be announcing details on a blog tour and how you can get an ARC of the book if you're interested. If you're a blogger with an interest in contemporary romance/drama and New Adult then please get in touch with me here or on Twitter.

And finally, "The Art of Love" has a Goodreads page with a synopsis of "The Art of Love", which I'll post here!

Marina Phillips has spent her entire life as her father’s victim. But enough is enough. All it took was one moment of realization to send her fleeing across the country into the unknown of New York City with no plans and no money. A new life without the constant torture is all she wants, but what she finds waiting is something she never expected.

Fitz is New York’s premiere playboy artist. Sexy, tattooed, and coveted by women and men alike, his performances are heralded as the coming of a new god of modern art. But when Marina wanders into his show, she becomes the inadvertent piece he’s always waited for – a girl to sculpt, to change, and to craft in his own image.

She never expects to fall head over heels into the world of parties, drag queens, agents, and artists craving for her and her benefactor. She didn’t even expect to begin falling in love with someone like Fitz, the sexy, pretentious man of her nightmares.

Above all, Marina never expects her father to stage a cross-country mission to paint her as a kidnapped girl taken by a psychopath.

With her life on the line, Marina has no choice but to accept Fitz’s proposal – change everything she is, inside and out, for the chance to start anew. But Marina has plans of her own. Plans that will rock her world forever.

I hope that grabs your interest!

So now I'm going to take a brief break to celebrate finishing the first draft (which means curling up with my dog to watch Fringe or Firefly) and then I'll dive into editing, redrafting, blogging and all that fun stuff. I seriously can't wait to share "The Art of Love" with you all!

  1. Congratulations! Now, find as many beta readers as you can, and find a good editor. I have an eighth grade English teacher who does the final edits. Good luck to you. :)
