Still In Love With Her (Maggie & Vince, Book ONE) Update – 7/22/2014

FYI, I am so ON SCHEDULE. I’ll be attending the RWA Conference from Wednesday through Sunday so I’m going to really have to remember to work. I predict that the first pass of Know Her, Love Her (Daisy & Belmont, Book ONE) will be returned from the editor while I’m at the conference. I have to go through the manuscript and return it for a second pass ASAP. I want to really get the next book to you before August 15th.

I’m a whopping 27k words into Still In Love With Her. A lot has happened between Maggie and Vince. Like Daisy and Belmont, they have to figure out how to negotiate their differences so that they may find a TRUE happily ever after. And so the roller-coaster ride is about to commence! LOL! 

Some HUGE changes have occurred in Maggie’s professional life. Also, I’m closer to the part of the story where I have to link Know Her, Love Her with Still In Love With Her. You’ll see Maggie and Vince at the end of Know Her, Love Her, which will be a flashback to a month earlier before that story ends… I know. Confusing. But It’ll make sense once you read the book. Well, I’m at the week before Maggie and Vince gets together for dinner in New Orleans with Angelina and Charlie to discuss Daisy and Belmont…

Are you still with me???


Anyway so… Maggie looks very, very tired–gasp worthy tired. This books says why she looks that way. It has something do with her new job. Oh, and Monroe is her new business partner…

I really dig this story. Maggie gets inducted into Monroe’s crazy world. 

Anyway… Hitting the hay two hours earlier than usual. I have to get my body ready to wake up at a decent hour.

    I stumbled across your Love in the USA series and I am hooked 🙂 You have inspired me to visit Martha ‘ s Vineyard when I am next in the US! (I’m from Australia)
    Can’t wait for the next installment!

      Hi Nikki from the beautiful country of Australia 🙂 You absolutely MUST add Martha’s Vineyard to your bucket list It really is a spectacular island–there’s beauty around every corner. I’m going back for a few weeks in November. This time I want to rent a cottage in Oak Bluffs, although I really like Edgartown.

      When you make it to MV and fall in love, you must tell me all about it 🙂

      All best, Z

    Thanks for the book updates. It’s difficult trying to explain all the twists and turns when it’s in process but I know it will all flow once I have the finished book in hand. I can’t wait!

    Have fun in San Antonio this week. I can’t make it this year but so many of my friends (from LARA) are going. Maybe I’ll finally get to meet you in New York next year.

      You’re welcome, Julia!!! This is my first RWA, I’ll see how it goes and if it’s worth the time and money, then I’ll definitely go to NYC next year! Heck, I probably will be living there already! 😉 Z
