I love Ash. I also love Trent. I absolutely hate this chapter.
It’s one of those chapters where I wrote Six not entirely sure where I was going with it, and then outlined Chapter EIGHT… with Chapter Seven as that neglected, horribly abandoned bastard child that’s the get of “Unsure-Six” and “Maybe-It’ll-Work-Eight.”
I don’t know why I dislike this chapter so much. It was difficult to write as the words simply didn’t flow. Editing was like trying to fight Godzilla with a toy lightsaber, and when all’s said and done for posting… I’m just like…
😕 😳 😕
Bear with me. Chapter 8 is being processed into 2 parts if I can’t trim it down from the 11k word monster that it is, and it will be posted on the same day. I had written that part as a one chapter, so by golly, it will stay as one chapter. Two parts is my compromise.
What I’m expecting to do from Chapter 9 onwards is focusing strictly on the men. It’s about them figuring out about themselves and the relationship. Will it work? Will it fail? The obstacles. If it does work out, it’ll be about Trent coming out to his family which he hasn’t done yet to this point. At all. There’ll be a couple of scenes in there with his mother. And Evan, too.
If it doesn’t work out… well… friends still, I suppose? With benefits? 😉
However, I’m trying to get away from the whole “romance story” effort into a… something a little bit more Tom Clancy-ish for Book 2. At least, that’s the plan. As long as nothing else new springs up in the middle of it and tells me “Hey, there’s a hidden door right here to another place. Come on, try it with me.”
After all, what’s the point of throwing paranormal into it if I’m not going to use it, right? 🙂
So, link be HERE. I do hope you enjoy!
