For me the challenge of NaNoWriMo isn’t in the time it takes to type 50,000 words, it’s in knowing what to write. Fortunately, once I got started on this story, the fifth book in the Valentine series, the words flowed. And they’re still flowing. Like most of my other books, this book will probably be around 65,000 words, so there is more to go. And once I’ve finished the draft, I’ll need to flesh things out, revise and edit.
There are a few things different in this book than the previous Valentine books, the biggest being that I’ve included Daniel and Kate’s point of views in the story, as well as Jack and Tess’. I’m hoping it doesn’t get confusing. For the most part, I stick with Jack or Tess’ POV if they’re in the scene, so that should make it easy to keep track.
What’s the same is Jack and Tess’ banter, new lingerie and chocolate recipes, and a visit with Cora!
My goal is to have the book ready for publishing by February (Valentine’s day!), which isn’t that far away. So I’ll continue to be busy writing this holiday season. Fortunately, I love spending time with Tess and Jack and the crew!
