I’ve been rewriting/editing one of my older pieces for publication sometime late summer. This one is called The Wooden Rose and is a contemporary romantic drama set in a restaurant of the same name. Our main character, Gwen, is a former interpreter for the US Army who is living onthe streets after having a difficult time with PTSD and adjusting to life back home. Chance brings her into contact with Walter Smythe, a philanthropist who offers to help her. Gwen is enrolled in a cooking school at The Wooden Rose, taught by the fiery and stubborn Alaric Bennet. Sparks fly as the two learn how to get along, how to share their pasts and what it really means to love.
Right now, I’m about halfway through my edits (yay!) and moving along. I had forgotten how much I love this story. I say that about all of my pieces, but this one does hold a special place in my heart. It might be the characters (tough woman and snarky man) but it could also be the food. Actually, it might definitely be the food.
I’m also in the process of finding an editor for this piece. I have a couple of people whom I shall request sample edits from, and then will go from there! I’m really excited to get this out to you lovely people.
Enjoy the day, and eat some good food.
