Tomorrow is release day!!

April 30, 2007

Tomorrow Camryn Cutler’s new book, Calthraca: Adamare releases from Whiskey Creek Press Torrid. Now, I have to say I loved editing this one most in the series. Adama has come a long way since the last book, and now add in Kesim – hot, hot, hot. Some of the scenes in this book made me sweat, they were so passionate!

Although this book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading the first book to understand Adama. As a warning, the first book does not have the hero in it, though is definitely an erotic romance. But it’s integral to Adama becoming who she is in Adamare.

If you haven’t read the first one yet, you can pick it up at WCPT. Just click on the awesome book cover. 🙂

I’ll have a post tomorrow about Adamare with an excerpt for you all!

I just about died…

…looking at this website. For anyone in the publishing business, you’ll will probably be amused too.

Thank you to Miss Snark for posting it. Freaking hilarious.

AMAZING NEWS!

I’ve just been hired as the Review Coordinator for Whiskey Creek Press Torrid! Woot!

They’ve decided to break the position up into two, one for the General Line and one for the Torrid Line. And they’ve asked me to work with the Torrid Line, and I’ve accepted!

HOLY CRAP!

More details to come later once I’ve officially processed it in my head, lol…

For all those crazy Harry Potter fans (yes, I’ll admit that I am one!), the new trailer for HP5 is out! And it looks AMAZING!!!

And Book 7 comes out in the same month!

You may carry on now… 😛

Writerly update

April 22, 2007

So, normally editing comes first, writing second. If I gets edits back from an author, I stop whatever I’m doing and go to work editing them, because normally I’m on deadline, the author’s on deadline, and it makes me less stressed to get one thing done and out of the way. Plus, that’s what gets me money too, lol. Therefore writing often gets put to the back burner. Either I have too many edits to do, or I’m tired from my day job, or I just want to watch tv tonight. Either way, writing usually gets the shaft.

Yesterday that did not happen. Hubby and I did some driving around in the morning because it was so gorgeous out, then pretty much chilled in the afternoon. Come about 4pm, I decided I needed to get my 500 words in for the day. I usually have a modest goal of 500 words a day, with the hope that I’ll make 1000. Well yesterday I got so into it I got down 1560, and had it not been 10:30pm when I hit that, I probably could have made it to 2k words. Ah, well, I still surpassed my goal and then some.

So today I have a bigger goal. I’m currently at 18201 words total for the book right now, and I want to get to 20k today. It’s a lot, it’s more than I wrote yesterday, but I’m going to really try to hit it. Along with finishing up Jen’s edit which shouldn’t take long and looking at C.A.’s. 🙂

And…it’s freaking gorgeous out again. The birds are chirping away, it’s 9am and we’re already at a beautiful 64 degrees out.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Howdy

April 21, 2007

Welcome, welcome to our lovely blog. I’m Marissa, Kate’s sister, and I write sexy contemporary romantic suspense. A couple weeks ago I signed with an agent (woot), Laura Bradford of the Bradford Literary Agency. She’s a great agent, doing lots of editorial work along with the agenting which is exactly what I need at this point in my career… oh heck, who am I kidding? I’ll always need that because Lord knows, no writer does it perfect. Ever.

Anywho, this past Tuesday she pitched my book to the NY publishers and sent out requested full manuscripts, so now we wait, wait, wait, to see if we hear anything, good or bad. It’ll more than likely be months before we know, but at least it’s out there.

Now, I’m working on the second story in the series. I don’t have a title yet, but it’ll come to me… or not. Sarah McCarty came up with the title of this one, When Petals Fall.

So, that’s my story. I’ll post more later about the long, hard road it’s taken me to get here and whether or not I get farther up the road. 🙂 Til then…

Let’s get this party started…

April 20, 2007

Ok, I figure I’ll start this off with a BANG! LOL. My name is Kate Scott, and I’m an editor and writer. My dear sister Marissa and I decided to start this blog to talk about everything. Editing, writing, reading, uh, other blogs, families, um, hot men, lots and lots of sex, etc. etc. etc. In other words – everything!

There will be no holds barred on this blog! I will probably promote the authors for whom I edit (because I LOVE them), and we will do our darndest to get word out about our favorite authors, their releases, what we’re reading, maybe have author days, who the heck knows. Oh, and we’ll be able to keep you all updated on OUR work too! Woot! Like, for instance, Marissa just got signed by an AGENT! *jealous* But I’ll let her tell you all about that herself. 🙂

What’s the plan for this blog, really? No idea. Just whatever we feel like, whenever we feel like it. 🙂

Welcome to our blog!
