I’m so sorry to hear of your loss, ChrisI've got my The Beast of Wheeler Ridge for free on Amazon right now, and didn't even realize it! So I'm playing catch up as fast as I can making the announcement, which should have started yesterday. Just having a ton of trouble prioritizing all my tasks, all the books, my agent, my publishers--all of it is just coming down so fast and heavy on me. My twin sister just died and I'm numb from shock on that account. Everything at once is getting really hectic. I hope I pull out of this.

Thanks. It's taken off in a number of ways I didn't anticipate, which makes every writing session a journey of discovery.Old man on porch: <spits tobacco> There's your problem right there.
But seriously, this sounds like a very awesome story. I would read it even though I tend to not like romcom or romantic themes. Reminds me of time travel/alternate world type stories, where the MC discovers characters they know in different circumstances/personalities.
Thanks @Wayne Mack ! I assumed there must be a thread like that but for some reason couldn't see it!Welcome @Topher

At some point I realized this about my current WIP. While I am rewriting a whole bunch of it, these were very, very important for me to internalize my story. I think what this was for me was basically an incomplete first draft which I started rewriting before people strictly start rewriting a draft.what I really did was a series of vignettes to capture ideas
I'll be sending you my first draft soon - the deadline is 30th Nov... Although I can hear your little impatient witch-voice going 'get awwwwn with it!'Ooh, Lyme, nice. If you need a beta for it, you know where I am.
The trouble with this one is that I wrote what I've got while I was doing a property renovation. I was there mon-fri each week, and the writing was my only "refuge" from the wash/dry/paint type cycle day-in, day-out, 8am-8pm. I've just got to the end of re-reading, and the last two chapters get increasingly patchy.At some point I realized this about my current WIP.
