I've published non-fiction work related to my profession, but am still hoping to publish my first novel: A contemporary paranormal romance. I have another book written but not edited yet that is a historical (Mayan) fantasy epic. I would like feedback on tension building, getting deep into POV, natural dialogue, backloading, plot, visceral responses written fresh, and overall pacing. Essentially, I want to know how I can punch up my writing so it is hard to put down. I also want a group to hold me accountable, give me the incentive to keep my "Butt in Chair, Fingers on Keyboard" BICFOK.
I'm Cindy, love living in Davis. I've published non-fiction but find publishing fiction to be a very different experience. I have two books near completion, an epic, non-genre-specific historical and a contemporary paranormal romance.
