When I first started writing my book I was very clear on my characters Krystal and Seth. But as I wrote other characters came forward and became main characters; like Boyd. There wouldn't even be a book if there wasn't a Boyd. Another character surfaced while I was doing research on Norway, my characters ancestory home country. When I read the story of Princess Kristina, I just loved the story but there was a lot untold. I wanted to make Princess Kristina an important storyline but it took the story a whole different way. I had to scale her back much to my disappointment. I thought maybe someday I'll write her story. She lived in 1250's in Norway and then moved to Spain in her last part of her life. I was excited to find that an author wrote her story in 2010. The only problem is that the book is in Norwegian and Spanish. I wrote the publisher to see if they had plans to get an American publisher and they said no, but if I knew someone they would be interested. Someday I would like to help it get published here. The authors name is Mia Soreide. The story someday would be a great companionship book with mine. Or at least I hope so.

I've been slacking on working on my book. So back to work I go. I'm at the final stages of reediting and I think as I get close to the end I don't want it to be over with. So to distract myself I've found a contest I want to enter. They want the first 10 pages of my book it's called the "Magic Moments contest." Which of course I've reedited that version a billion times. It's the moment when Krystal and Boyd meet in their adulthood for the first time. The sexy man with his dimples and great looks, falls crazy in love with Krystal and she can't figure out why. What makes us attracted so quickly and instantly is a mystery but fun to write about. So hopefully I will have an update on the contest in a month or so, but for now I will persevere and finish this book so some day it will be available for all to read.
