My Writing Process
This particular blog hop is all about authors offering others a glimpse into their work, their work schedules, and perhaps their innermost thoughts. Some of us are quite opposite our real life personas.
So who subjected you to this arduous journey through the innermost working of my mind? The lovely, the talented and VERY, VERY naughty Anne Lange!

Q. What am I working on?
I am almost done with the second book in the Symphony of Light Series, currently titled Between the Waters. I’m also working on a contemporary erotic novella trilogy. The first book in the series is titled Curing Doctor Vincent. After those two release this year, I will begin a short story based on a revelation readers will discover in Between the Waters.
If you want a sneak peak at the first three chapters of Curing Doctor Vincent, I’m currently giving them as a free gift to anyone who purchases Jessica Howe’s Kinky Sex – The Secret to Long-term Desire. Here’s the link to enter for free gifts from not only me but other great and Best Selling authors such as Desiree Holt, Cherise Sinclair, Katy Swann, Joey W. Hill, Valerie Twombly and many more… http://thekinkysexbook.com/kinky-sex-launch/
Q. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I don’t follow the ‘rules.’ Symphony of Light and Winter is at heart a mystery which isn’t your typical format for paranormal romance. I also like to come up with a plot that feels unique, which is hard to do in a market with so many talented and creative authors. But if reviews are to be believed, I achieved a unique flair with Symphony of Light and Winter and I’m hoping that I’m about to do it again with Between the Waters.
Q. Why do I write what I do?
I honestly have no idea. I started writing because the story Symphony of Light and Winter compelled me to write. I don’t really control what hits the page. Muses? Psychosis? Your guess is as good as mine.
Q. How does your writing process work?
I only write when I have something worthy to put on the page and have time to do so. I have another career that has nothing to do with writing and it consumes a substantial amount of time. I also have two small boys who demand a lot of attention and a beyond supportive hubby who deserves more than the passing glance he usually gets. Pumping out works on demand just aren’t in the cards for me now. I wish they were but my other career isn’t one I can just walk away from and I refuse to short change my family. But I know sometime, sooner than I’d like my boys will have others that hold their attention and you’ll hear a lot more from me.
To start a story I usually am not able to successfully outline more than a few chapters at a time before the characters take over and foil my plans, so I’ve stopped trying. So no matter how much effort I put in to not being panster, I fail. I just wish they would write faster and power through distractions. I’m not asking for much, really.
Q. Who will we meet next week?
Impostors’ Kiss, my first short story was published last year. The mechanics of writing a short story are very different than writing a full-length novel, much harder actually. So I’d like to pay tribute to two short story authors.
I’d also like to pay tribute to two ladies to watch out for! Supporting and helping to foster new talent is one of the missions of CoffeeTalkWriters.com and these two ladies will soon be lighting up the scene!
