Word Count Obsession

I have a goal. Snicker. Big surprise there. But my goal is to finish this manuscript by the time I leave for New York, which would mean I'd like to be done by June 3rd. I've already got about 52k words down, so I need another 44k words, give or take a couple thousand.... in 16 days. And I'm pretty sure I'm going to get edits back during those 16 days. So to hit my goal,  I have to average around 2750 words a day. 

My ticker is on the side bar under my bio.  Looks kind of sad right now.

I'll keep it updated on the blog side bar if you guys want to see the progress.

A lot of people have asked what I'm working on. I can't go into a lot of detail about it, but what I can tell you is that it's an adult novel, heavy on the romance and action and what not. It hasn't been sold. So there's no release date. I can say that I *think* some people will be very happy or excited about it. 

When I think of this book, I think of this. Sort of. 

And the novel is tentatively called "Obsession"


  1. Romance + Action + THAT picture = Obsession
    Yeah, *fingers crossed*

  2. Hmm.. another O go along with Obsidian, Onyx and Opal? A companion novel maybe? Because " someone" turns into a Hunter for the Luxen...? Oh let the conspiracy theories run rampant!!

  3. Umm, yeah, I DO like romance and action and that picture... Let's hope Obsession gets published! *fingers crossed*

    I belive in you, Jennifer! You're gonna reach your goal!

  4. Hey whatever it is I WILL READ IT cause YOU wrote it!!!!

    Number one fan right here baby!!! <----- You know it's true!

    Love the pic btw


  5. Yay for adult romance novels! At least you're setting a daily goal. I have no doubt you'll get thru it bc you're just awesome like that! :)

    Obsession...I like it. It's like how your fans are about you. Obsessed! In a good way of course, lol.

  6. Ooooooohhh! Me likey! I want this book now! If Obsession is anything like "Tempting the Best Man" I'm completely, totally, 100% in!

    Really interested to watch you meet your goal. Only in my wildest dreams could I imagine writing 2750 words a day!

    Good Luck!

  7. Oh, good! This gives me more time to finish the edits on APOLLYON without guilt! :)

  8. I am super excited for anything that you write! I love the title too!!
