Finished my novel draft!
March 23, 2014

This is what it looks like when I have finally, finally finished the first draft of my novel. The word count is a bit lower than I was aiming for but I’ll get there when I flesh some parts out a bit more during the editing process.

I started the project in March of last year and finished it this afternoon. I wrote it using Apple Pages, some index cards and Index Card for iPad ($4.99 but I highly recommend it).

Why yes, reader, I am terrified of the editing process. Thanks for asking.

But for right now, at least I can say that I finished a book and enjoy that satisfaction. Finally. FINALLY! Frig, I’ve only been trying since I was, like, 10 or something.

praise for jillianne

Jillianne has done a fabulous job creating a loveable and down-to-earth heroine in Molly Miranda and followed through with a really strong plotline packed full of twists and turns.
Holly at Bookaholic Confessions
Hamilton handles the story with a deft touch, balancing action, laugh-out-loud zingers and romance with zippy pacing and a character you can really root for.

I thought the author's sense of humor was so funny! I found myself giggling out loud.
