Stopped in the Name of Love...


If having trouble with completing your second book is sophmoreitis, I guess I'm suffering from Junioritis. My second book will be released by Ellora's Cave on May 29, 2009 and I'm over the moon about it. However, I now have to buckle down and write a third book and I'm finding it a challenge.

It's not that I don't have ideas for a book. It's not that I haven't started three or four projects. I have. I have great ideas. But... I've come to road blocks with ALL of them. The funny thing is, the road block is a love scene. Every single time. It's like I've gotten frigid or something and it's horrible. Bleh.

I've been bouncing from idea to idea but when I put my butt in the chair and my hands on the keyboard I sit there and nothing happens. Aaaaaaargh! I hate it. My poor heroes must be suffering from terminal blue balls by now. I mean...ouch. My heroines are laying there throbbing but experiencing no release. They aren't happy and neither am I.

Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you get writing again? How did you get in the mood to write a hot love scene. Help! My heroes and heroines have started to plot my demise and I need to get us all some relief. Soon.

Seeking Truth has a buy page at EC!

I just had to share cause I'm sooooooo excited. Ellora's Cave has created a buy page for my upcoming release, Seeking Truth. It includes my hot cover, the blurb and a link to my steamy excerpt.

There are few things more satisfying than to see your book page set up at your publisher's Web site. Happy sigh.

So if you want to see the new page and read the excerpt, visit the Ellora's Cave Web site at:

Tweet, tweet

Tweet me.


Yup, I took the plunge and joined Twitter- follow me at http://twitter.com/francescahawley



I have been putting off joining this one because I worried that it might be a time sink or that I might get totally lost. Yesterday, I attended an IRN meeting and our speaker was Cheryl Corbin who gave us all a presentation about Twitter and how you can make it work for you as an author. It was really helpful so I decided to try to enter this whole new world. I'm reserving judgement, but I think it looks kind of fun. So please, tweet this newbie bird over at Twitter and make me feel at home!
