I loaded a new excerpt on 8/20/2012.
I heard from many of you who thought I should keep the working title of my work-in-progress. And I received a few other entries that evoked the memory of Urbandour. The trouble with many of the choices was the "urban" image that I don't want to portray. I have nothing against "Urban Literature." My work-in-progress just doesn't fit that genre.
So, I slept on it. Or rather as my sleep-apnea buddies know, I stayed awake half the night on it. The image I want to portray is the world of internet relationships.
And so the new name for my baby is
"Screen Name: A1QTEE."
And I bought myself an Amazon gift certificate. It's real handy for buying lots of 99 cent Kindle books.
I'll post an excerpt in a few days.
My current Work-in-Progress, which is a long way from completion, is in need of a name. The working title is Blaq-Kawfee.com (where friends are more than just faces on a screen.)
When Angela gets word that Laura has been dead for a month, she is shocked and hurt. She must tell Laura's on-again-off-again fiance, JDaniels, whom Laura banned from the site weeks ago. JDaniels flies to Las Vegas to get first-hand information on what happened. What he learns starts the network of friends from BK on a statewide and international search for the truth about QTEE.
Meanwhile Angela and her husband Bodine are scheduled for a South American cruise from Chile around Cape Horn, ending in Brazil. The day before they leave, Angela gets a call from a BK friend in New York City who has gotten a voicemail from Laura saying she's in New York on the way to Rio. And so begins the Mystery Adventure Romance.
