The Characters Write the Story

As everyone can guess, I am not a blogger. I write fiction - well, most times I take a little reality and throw in a lot of idealism which amounts to the same thing- so when it comes to telling you all what’s going on in my life I get what most would call “Writers Block”. I am a loner; a closed mouthed type personality; I don’t like to put my personal life/business in the street nor do I splatter it across social media sites. However, I realize that as a writer I owe it to my readers to let y’all know what is going on with my writing, so I will try to share what is up with us these days. As most of you know, I write under several personalities/names, most frequently the Lila Beckham personality takes over. She is more open when it comes to communicating with the Characters- she lets them run wild, while I am more controlling and tend to over-think them and try to analyze what they try to convey, which slows the process a great deal; therefore, it is a constant battle. Once Lila has wrestled the reins from me, she lets the character develop into what they want to be, not what we wish them to be. I hope that makes sense. (The Characters Write the Story) Lila is the one “The Sheriff” Joshua Stokes, talks with most; they have a good rapport and write well together - if you ask me, she is a little more invested than she ought to be- I think she believes he will come to life one day and they can ‘be together’ if you know what I mean. Right now, Lila has several books going - the latest adventure with the Sheriff they’re calling “Markers” is due out Nov 15, 2014
- but, they’ve also delved into the next in the series and say they should have it finished by late spring/early summer of 2015. She is splitting her time between the Sheriff and a new cast of Characters that have come to life in a new ‘Historical Scorcher’ as she refers to it, that she has titled “Desireé - the Memoirs of Desireé de Comte Lafontaine”
And, she’s right, it is Sizzling - it makes me blush just reading over her shoulder as they write! I am eager for our readers to read it but also anxious about it. Come November, we will catch up with what has been going on with ‘The Sheriff’ - and for everyone’s Christmas, we will introduce the characters of Desireé. I also have several irons in the fire that I work on when time allows- there just aren’t enough hours in the day folks ;)

Update - computer crashed - had to go with a different cover and I changed the title to Salomé  pronounced Sal-lo-mae. It's on Amazon, listed under L Beckham
