Some Thoughts on Editing and Structure
I knew that the original structure for my novel Palace Dog was somewhat unconventional. Instead of chapter breaks I had divided the story into three parts. I wrote the shorter first and third sections in the third person and had the long middle section in segments written as journal entries told in the first person. At the time I was writing it, it seemed to make the most sense to do it this way. This was the format I submitted to Dreamspinner Press and the format I expected for the book.

Hooray for strategically placed coffee cups!
I also really dig his tattoo.
Here's today's coffee chat - if you were going to be an erotica or romance writer, what would your pen name be? If you're already using one, how did you choose it? Mine would be Olive Church. That's actually the answer I get from one of those "What's your stripper/porn star name?" quizzes, and I've always thought it was too conservative for that line of work. But I like the image of the buttoned up author writing steamy romances, so Olive Church it is! How about you?
Any basketball fans out there? The Raptors squeaked out a massive win over Houston last night. It was a hell of a game and came down to the last play. That kind of game is emotionally exhausting. This is how I feel today, but with slightly larger boobs, and minus the morning wood, obviously.
