It's officially National Novel Writing Month, and I'm working hard.
I started writing this in June after meticulously creating an outline, which I have since deviated from. Since then, I have written more than 100 pages of frantic, soul-biting prose, that will turn Brandon and Natalie into monsters.
Well, it's not as dramatic as that, but you get the picture.
Brandon and Natalie will both turn into the types of people they used to judge once upon a time. And at this point in the writing process, I'm not really sure if I want them to go back.
I've also introduced a couple of new characters: one opinionated lesbian, and a spoiled rotten heir with a genius IQ. One of which will affect Natalie and her sense of self-control for the rest of her life.
A lot of this couldn't have happened without the help of my closest friends who've listened to every single one of my ideas, and we've been brainstorming like crazy. This entire venture wouldn't be possible without them.
While Skin Like Dawn highlights the endurance of Brandon and Natalie's love now that they are married, I will essentially present it as a tragedy of sorts. With that type of love ushers a particular kind of exposure and pain. And although this is a sequel, it is intended to stand on its own.
This has been a 5-year endeavor, I am elated that it is finally taking shape.
In the event that you need to catch up before this book comes out, you can read its predecessor When You Come to Me for free!
