Soul’s Little Lie 2: Broken Roses summary

This might be a work in progress summary bit, not sure yet, but I’m sharing it with my future fans now.

Here you go –

Davon Tucker’s life has been turned upside down. Local reporter, Leah Jones, finds Davon in his hotel room in his worst nightmare – covered in his own blood going down the drain. His mind is haunted by his worst fear, but he is not sure if it is true or not. The only way to get himself out of these mental hauntings is to check himself into Strong Waters Rehab Center in upstate New York, however, his older sister Amy seems to have plans of her own. Amongst the old mansion turned rehab center, a dark history begins to surface as Davon and Leah dig deeper into the bowels of the old foundation. A haunting voice soon awakens the worst in Davon’s mind – ‘Don’t return to the dreaming’, it says, but how can Davon keep himself from dreaming while the nightmares around him are very much awake and moving all around the grounds?

Chapter Size, Does It Matter?

I just finished 28 pages (size 12, Times New Roman style) on my computer. It looks great all printed and there are possibly two locations in which it can be broken up into two separate chapters. However, the way these 28 pages read is like one very large chapter. In physical book format or digital tablet reader format, how large would this chapter actually come out to in the end? For that matter, how large does a chapter have to be so not to overwhelm the reader? I’ve read chapters that are two pages long in a physical book and thirty pages long or longer. I would love to see how these 28 pages happen to look in full book format just to cure my curiosity.

Oh, the temptation to share the 4th novel of the Soul’s Little Lie series with all of you, but I can’t…..I mustn’t. It does need some clean up, but not much. I love the last two pages of this chapter so much I’ve found myself re-reading it aloud so far six times in the last few days. I just love this part of the story, but it would be bad form of me to share it this early.

What I should be doing is continuing on chapter 2 of SLL: Broken Roses instead. This part though, oh this beautiful part of book 4 called to me this month. It wanted to be written and now that it has, I feel I must keep going, but…but….I need to continue with book 2 instead like a good girl. I must not disappoint my publisher if I am to get that contract.

Oh, that story is so moving. I wish I could share it, but it’s best to wait.

Where I Type My Novels

From my previous blog post: https://tarabdobbs.com/2014/05/26/comfy-locations-are-a-must/  I explained a few reasons why a comfortable places to type your large projects is a must and how to avoid bad locations.

Now, I’d like to show you where I create my novels. This curved couch is called Liberator Esse: http://www.liberator.com/esse.html (This site is for ADULTS ONLY) I just noticed that the chair comes in PURPLE! OMG, I want it in purple next time. And that head rest is new, so I totally want that for Christmas!

I got this Esse chair for obvious reasons, but over the years my marriage fell apart and I found this chair for better uses – lounging while writing books. My gray old office chair is too large for me and it hurts my neck while I sit up right to type and messes with my shoulders. So, laying on the Esse chair with loads of pillows really helps.

As added bonus, my friend Molly bought me that pretty rainbow patterned beach towel. I needed some more color in my room and this was the perfect match. The center seat cushion is placed at the foot of the chair as an extra leg rest. I LOVE my Esse chair. It’s worth the price of nearly $500.00!

If you do buy this to lounge in for reading or writing, be warned – YOU WILL FALL ASLEEP IN IT!
