I am about 40% finished with Witch Fury and rapidly reaching the halfway mark. It’s misleading to say I’m “40%” finished, however, because there’s always so much cutting, rearranging, adding, rewriting, ect during my editing portion of the book writing process. But this is how far along I am in the initial draft.

The male lead is infuriating. He won’t do what I need him to do. Sometimes characters are like that. You create them to be a certain way and then their personalities make “dealing” with them difficult. In this case, the hero is stoic, untalkative, gruff and uncooperative. He was like that in Witch Heart too, but in that book he was only a secondary character. I’m going to have to get the whip out soon.

I’m writing this morning, but will probably knock off at some point today to take my daughter to the zoo. It’s beautiful here. I hope it’s half as pretty where you are.

If you have a second, be sure and check out Lauren Dane’s new cover for Fated. Also, go on over and take a peek at Megan Hart’s cover for her next Spice release, Stranger. They are both incredibly pretty!

  1. My current WIP is a tough one, too. The whole thing, though, not just the hero. 🙁

  2. Oh I hear you on characters just not cooperating!

    And thanks for the cover lovin!

  3. I know they are hard to work with but those types of heroes make me shiver…

  4. Good luck, Anya – 🙂 I’m so excited to read this one.

  5. I laughed at what you said about uncooperative characters because it’s so true. It’s amazing how they take on a life of their own, isn’t it?
