My editor emailed yesterday to say that they have titled Henri & Robert -- TO MARRY A MATCHMAKER. It brilliantly reflects the story so I'm very pleased with the title.
She also let me know that they want to offer me another four book contract. So I am pleased about that. It will be a small matter of hitting of deadlines! But I should be able to do that. I am the one who set them and have no one to blame but myself.
Twyla Tharp in her book The Creative Habit gives the image of polish a clock face. It is about how dancers work on skills. It is a good analogy. However, you have to know which clock to polish!
For example she quotes the novelist John Gregory Dunne -- Because one has written other books does not mean the next becomes any easier. Each book in fact is a tabula rasa; from book to book I seem to forget how to get characters in and out of rooms -- a far more difficult task than non writers might think.
And further on in the same chapter -- The great ones never take the fundamentals for granted.
So fingers crossed that this next one goes easier and that I remember the focus and the main purpose of the story is the ROMANCE.
And it is a good reason why I'm pleased both books live on my bookshelves and I'm able to go back and re-read them.
