A Gift From The Muses?
Actually, I was writing Scarlett under the working title Oh Moon! Yeah, that's how I wrote it, with an exclamation point. I was thinking about a poem I read in my high school English Lit class. It was sappy of course, but I always liked the title for some reason. And except for the title, I don't recall anything else about the poem, not even the author. Anyway, I thought Oh Moon! would be a good title for my second paranormal novel, which sort of sprang forth from Fairlight. I was loving writing about kick ass witches then thought I should tone it down with another witchy creation. Anyway, while I was writing Oh Moon! I was thinking about another story and started on Fine Lines, an adult contemporary novel. My sister told me the two female leads had almost the same backgrounds with their husbands, and she was correct. No wonder the writing was so easy.
I stopped writing Oh Moon! as a novel and wrapped it up as a novelette. Which kind of became an outline(or something) for my paranormal novel, Scarlett and the adult contemporary, Fine Lines. I re- named Oh Moon! to Magic Moons and hesitated to publish it, on account of I was afraid someone might read it and say, it was a hybrid of Scarlett and Fine Lines and claim I'm lazy or some other stuff that isn't true. When actually, Scarlett and Fine Lines were born from Oh Moon! which I re-named to Magic Moons. I am about to submit it to amazon tonight and by morning it will go live. I'm hoping it is received well for what it is. I love it. Here's the cover I made for it.
