You know how I say not to trust what I post in advance because my plots tend to change on me? Well, sometimes the whole book changes on me.
This has happened twice before. The first time was in 2006 with Pink IV. I had Charlotte’s story all plotted out and then Mary and Vaughn came barging in, demanding a book of their own. As we all know, Mary doesn’t like to be refused. I figured that was a one-time thing, Mary and Vaughn being the sorts of people they are.
In the spring of 2009, Turnip blundered across my path, derailing the partly written Orchid Affair with his Christmas puddings and miscellaneous misadventures. That was a particularly memorable one because the blinding moment of revelation occurred, not in the quiet of my own living room, but in the middle of an RWA-NYC meeting. At which I was speaking. While I was speaking.
All of this is a very long way of saying that should disregard what you may have read over on the FAQ page. Pink X will not, in fact, be about Kat Reid and Tommy Fluellen. Instead, Pink X will be about… Miss Gwen. Miss Gwen commanded and I obeyed.
What can I say? She wields a mean parasol.
