So here I am now, at Writerspace, posting this blog about plotting.
That’s largely to let the world know about my latest upcoming release, Colton 911: Caught in the Crossfire, a Harlequin Romantic Suspense novel. It’ll officially be published in November, which isn’t far away.
For those of you who are familiar with the Harlequin Romantic Suspense Colton series, it’s an ongoing, enjoyable series about the really large Colton family, which has members all over the country–and they all seem to get involved with difficult situations in their lives, which can include murders and other crimes. And since they’re romances, in each story a member of that family gets involved in a relationship. Colton 911: Caught in the Crossfire involves cattle rustling, among other suspenseful situations. It’s my first story about a member of that amazing family, and it won’t be the last. I have another one coming out next year. And additional Harlequin Romantic Suspense stories as well.
So, yes, I’ve been busy plotting romances, although the stories about Coltons were well planned before I started writing them.
I’m also plotting more writing. As I’ve mentioned before, my mystery publisher is no longer in business–so I’m plotting how I can write more mysteries for a different publisher.
I’m plotting my own life, too–visits with family, travel plans, how best to obey my dogs as they give me orders… the usual.
I enjoy plotting in all ways. My mind is always at work on one plot or issue or story in one way or another, whether or not I tell it to. My subconscious and I are best friends.
Do you plot your life? How? Do you enjoy doing it? Do you have any secret ways you’ve learned to plot?
