My new novel, Wildflower, is taking shape. It’s going in a direction I hadn’t originally intended but I like it. I had to soften the opening though — it was reading too close to erotica. Dewy Moss, the publishing company, doesn’t do erotica. I imagine my business partner would have been mortified had she opened my manuscript with the first chapter rated XXX.
Nonetheless, I feel more comfortable with the softer opening chapter. While it’s still rated R, it’s a far departure from XXX. Daisy Does Denver it is NOT. 😉
Some of my inspiration for Wildflower comes from Jackie Collins with her scandalous plots and risque characters. While I’m not the amazing Jackie Collins, I like that Wildflower is taking me out of my comfort zone.
On to Day Three.
