Hi, hi! All is well here. Busy, busy with the day job, but I'm finding a way to deal with it. I finished critiquing the first two parts of my CP's historical. She is AWESOME! Jenna Stuart. She'll be on the shelves one day. No doubt about it! Remember the name. I've been exercising and I'm becoming quite the little health nut! But I feel so good! As for the book, weeeeeeeellllll, let's just say that's not going as fast as I'd like. I'm still making slow progress, but I want it all and I want it now!
I do have one question for you. I'm not a big fan of books where the hero and heroine knew each other before the start of the book. (Although, one of my all-time favorite books, Perfectly Saucy by Emily McKay is one of those. Plus, I'm excited to read Private Arrangements by Sherry Thomas. So I do like some books where the hero and heroine already know each other.) Anyway, as I was driving today from one campus to the other, my hero insisted that he and the heroine knew each other before, when she was in high school. Then my heroine piped in and let me know she really had a thing for him back then. I personally didn't ever want to write a story like that, but it appears the story is writing itself! I have no choice but to follow. So my question is how do you feel about books with heroes and heroines who were first loves or at least used to know each other? How popular is this "hook" and am I the only one not jumping on the bandwagon? (Well, I guess I am jumping on board now that my hero and heroine have demanded I do so!) Come on, people. Share with me!
