I give you . . . The Fork

The Fork

Yeah. Fork picture by yours truly.

Today I emailed My Dangerous Pleasure to my editor at Grand Central Publishing. Four (4) days early.

So, Carolyn, What’s next?

Thanks for asking.

  • Reading
  • Goofing off
  • Writing proposal for next two paranormals
  • Begin work on . . . project I can almost talk about
  • Post Historical Short on website
  • Post Paranormal Short on website

Maybe in that order. Or maybe not.


The Fork is Out!

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

My Dangerous Pleasure is essentially done. I now have a week for final tweaks. I’ll post the fork pic when I actually send off the MS.

Today– ok, technically yesterday given that it’s 12:37 AM –I deleted one chapter, then rewrote the last three and ended up plus 2000 words. And that despite procrastination.

In other news, I have heard some early feedback about My Immortal Assassin and it makes me very happy. No official reviews yet, but the twitter early warning system is in effect. The hopeless pathetic part of me is whispering that maybe my twitter follower ARC readers don’t want to hurt my feelings and that’s why they’re saying good things. Only, would not silence be the better solution rather than a big fat lie? Yes, Writers Neurosis is in full effect.

Anyway, if you ‘d like to find out for yourself, you can enter my ARC contest from the previous post. Also, just FYI, the bird in that picture is a female Oriole and the bottle it’s clinging to is full of sugar water, not plain water. Lastly, I can represent to you that about 10 years ago the Audubon Society itself confirmed that Jewel central was the Northernmost point confirmed for the North American Oriole. We have two kinds that show up here; The North American and the Hooded Oriole. I don’t know which that is because it’s female. The males are easy to distinguish.

Anyhow, off to bed for me. Tweaking revisions for a week, then the fork.

Get your comment in for an ARC of My Immortal Assassin!


Oooh, pretty . . .

Thanks to Google Alerts, I can show you this:

Cover of My Immortal Assassin by Carolyn Jewel

Pretty, huh?

I didn’t even know the cover art was final enough to put on Amazon. You can preorder, by the way (puppy dog eyes) from Amazon. This weekend I should have time to bop around the web to get any other buy links, so you can pick the vendor of your choice as the book becomes available to order across the web.

The Next Paranormal, if I haven’t mentioned that yet, can now be called My Dangerous Pleasure. I am still writing the book, but that is the title and I can even say that I thought of it all by myself!


Head Down Writing Hard

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

The Next Paranormal is due November 1, so I have my head down and my fingers to the keyboard. I may not be posting too often between now and them. We’ll see how desperate things get.

Anyway, my tentative title is My Beloved Assassin but they’ve hated all my titles so far so I expect that to be shot down.

I also need a series title. Carolyn’s Paranormal Extravaganza is the best suggestion so far.

Am in big trouble.

Back to work.


Weekend Update

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

I completed a draft of the first synopsis for a book(s) to follow My Forbidden Desire and I’ve sent it to my agent for comment. I started a second one and have about three pages (need 5-10) that, amazingly, don’t seem to be total dreck. We shall see.

Other than that, I watched the Superbowl with my son and ate popcorn and cookies. Note to self: MUST go to gym tomorrow.

I have a bazillion other things yet to do; like send out a newsletter about Scandal and try to get my darn bookmarks done, paid for and delivered so I can start mailing them out to the people who’ve requested them.

Will try to get to all that soon.

But now, I have to get to bed. 4:25 am comes mighty early.
