Well, I am still writing… Yes, it is long enough for a novel, yet there is more to tell. My characters are at a critical point. They are begging me to continue. I have to change the cover because I changed the title. I want to actually finish the book before I change the cover though. What if I decide to change the title once again.
I need a staff to help me sometimes.
Here is a description for those who haven’t seen it yet:
Devon Sawyer is a bright, energetic graphic designer who falls in love hard and fast with his soul mate Carmen Calderón. A mutual acquaintance of theirs hits on Devon, and Carmen walks in to see them in a compromising position. Her world shattered, she flees and never allows Devon a chance to explain.
After Carmen runs, her world quickly begins crumbling around her. She can’t eat. She can’t sleep. She tries drinking and drugs for relief, but nothing stops the destruction of her life. Desperate, she takes her doctor’s advice to seek professional help. That decision will change her life forever.
A year after their break-up, Devon and Carmen are brought together by mutual friends in hopes that they will finally clear the air. When Carmen sees the regret in Devon’s eyes, she realizes he deserves the right to explain. She agrees to go to dinner with Devon to hear him out and, by the end of their dinner, they are both surprised to find that they are having a good time.
Before the sun rises the morning following their first evening together in over a year, Devon wakes to his cell phone’s insistent buzzing. Finally, bleary eyed, he answers. At first, he thinks perhaps Carmen dialed unintentionally. Her erratic breathing tells him something is wrong, really wrong. His instinct takes over and he knows he must get to her as fast as he can.
When Devon reaches her apartment, he crashes headlong into the very dark and disturbing past of Carmen Calderón. A past he knows little about. Will he help or will he have to say good-bye to her forever?
