Time to Go Back to the Beach!

Camp NaNoWriMo was a blast as usual, and we made a lot of progress on Haunted, the second book in the Woodsview Murders series over the month. There were some new developments that happened really organically, and I can't wait to explore them further.

But not this month. This month we're going back to the beach.

As I mentioned in a previous post, we finished the draft of the first Orchard Pointe book at the end of March. And after taking a month away to focus on Woodsview, we're diving back into the OP draft for edits and rewrites.

I haven't even looked at that draft since we finished it, and I'm excited to bring fresh eyes back to it. This book is the first time I've written a longer work in first person and it was a great learning experience. As usual, working with Jolene taught me a lot, as she's had plenty of experience with first person and has a great voice for it.

I already have plenty of thoughts about things I want to work on during these edits, and that work starts today.

So, I'll keep you posted on how it's going, as we get Orchard Pointe #1 ready for a summer release!
