Nearly Done with Step A

I have the finished version of the outline for the latest Onyx proposal just about in the can. Finally had a really good writing day un-plagued by migraines. So I’ll print this off and have Matt go over it over the weekend, and do a mop-up run through it Monday before I send it off. But I think I’ve managed to compress the million variables I had to successfully hit into a mere twenty pages.

If Claire likes the outline, I’ll do the first stack of pages so that my publisher can get a look at them and get a feel for what I want to do so that we can go to contract.

I like this. It has treasure, the tropics, a couple of hot guys, a ghost, and deadly danger. I think this one’s a keeper.

    Off-topic, but I’d like to say that your worldbuilding and notecarding methods have helped me immensely in planning my current novel. Thanks! 🙂

    A couple of hot guys sounds yummy. *grin*

    Good luck.

    It’s got treasure?
    I could use some treasure. Can I get in on this gig?

    Awesome! I recently read Last Girl Dancing, and loved it. I’m also about to begin The Secret Texts trilogy… I’m sure this proposal will be great. 🙂 Good luck!

    Sounds great :). I loved Diplomacy of Wolves and I’m sure this one will be equally fantastic.

    I’d just like to say that I’m honored that you link to my blog in your sidebar. Thanks a lot :D.
