So not only am I finished writing Forever Immortal, but I even did a first read-through of it and now it's off to my editor.

I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised when all is said and done.

The process of getting this book written felt like pulling teeth at some points. There were days I couldn't get more than a dozen words on the page, and that in itself would take me hours.

I thought that going over what I wrote would have been torture. I expected to find loads and loads of things that needed to be fixed. But as I was reviewing the book I saw it for the first time as a whole...and it really really works! It's not that I didn't know where I was going, or that I didn't like what I was writing, but the stilted, stunted progress I seemed to be making had me thinking for sure that I was going to have to do major major revisions.

Has anyone else ever been surprised this way about a project--whether it's a book you've been writing or otherwise?

Forever Immortal

When the death of an Immortal triggered Gideon Bennett’s life-changing physical transformation over five years ago, the easy-going research scientist was forced into a world of violence for which he was ill prepared. Now a seasoned warrior, the memory of his one massive failure and the face of the woman he couldn’t save haunts him still and has made him hard. If only he believed in second chances…

Lyssa James wasn’t looking for trouble when she set out to enjoy a night on the town. She just wanted to escape for a while, to leave behind her dead-end job and obnoxious ex-boyfriend. What she got instead was a first class ticket to a demon hell dimension where she’s been trapped for five long years, years spent remembering the face of the man that couldn’t save her. If only she could escape…

Then providence intervenes, giving Lyssa the opportunity she’d been waiting for, access to the very portal that had swallowed her whole and taken her life. Miraculously, when she comes out the other side, she finds herself facing the same Immortal that botched her rescue five years ago. If only she could turn back time. If only life wasn’t so complicated. If only she was still human instead of the very thing Gideon’s sworn to destroy. Demon. If only…
