I realize I’m going to upset a lot of people, but I can’t publish this book as is. I don’t know what’s wrong with it, but something is wrong with it. The first half is great. I love how it flows and the interaction between all of the characters.
The second half bothers me. Something doesn’t feel right about it, and I’m so close to the book that I’m unable to see exactly what is wrong. :( I know. It sucks. But I can’t publish a book I don’t believe is my best work. It’s not fair to me, and it’s not fair to all of you.
So I’m going to put this book aside. I don’t know how long it’ll be until I can go back to it. I’m going to wait until I figure out where I went wrong and how I can correct it.
In the meantime, I’m going to start Her Counterfeit Husband, put the widget for An Inconvenient Wife at the bottom of the list, and finish up Her Heart’s Desire.
I have no idea when I’ll be ready to work on An Inconvenient Wife again, but I already know I’m going to throw out the second half of the book and start over.
I’m really sorry.
