I've been doing some research on Race to Win, my upcoming novel, and it's started to germinate! The research was a result of an accident and spending time with an expert in the field -- my vet. One of my horses was badly injured in a freak accident and I've spent more time with my vet in the last month than I have in the last couple of years!
But my horse is steadily improving and I've found some answers to some holes in the plot line of Race to Win. It's the story of a young woman who must discover who is attempting to sabotage her grandfather's Thoroughbred stable by killing the horses for their insurance values.
As a horse lover, it's very hard to write, and that may have been what's stalling me a bit. I want the emotion to be right and honest. But it's hard to do!!
As I get going, I'll post some excerpts on my blog and you can see how it's progressing. I'm hoping for a spring release from Amber Quill Press, and I'll keep you posted. Now it's that matter of hitting my self-imposed deadlines, so I meet the publisher deadline...I like to get it in early because I've been an editor for almost as many years as I've been a writer, so know the crunch of deadlines, that's for sure.
Until next time, keep reading!
