Skymann Family

a while back, I decided to try my hand at a contemporary romance… but then I got sidetracked with my Finder’s Keepers series, and all the possibilities that line of thinking opened up… So in OCD fashion I wrote until my eyes crossed, forgetting about my Skymann Family novel… it was finished and just waiting for those evil edits… this morning I decided to tackle the Skymann edits head on… muhahahaha

I think I have a few more hours in me tonight, but so far, I am only 25 percent of the way through… but this is just the first go… I figure it will take another two to three weeks to get opinions and edits completely… if things go smoothly, I may be able to pull this off a little faster than that… I really do love my Skymann clan… they are some good ole’ boys, with a horrible past, but they have known how to take advantage of opportunity when it comes knockin’…

Four brother; Marcus – the oldest, Samuel – the youngest, and in the middle we have Jacob and Andrew – twins… I don’t know if you guys have ever had friends that seemed to be produced from some kind of mold, where all the siblings could have been produced as clones… I had this friend in high school and I swear that her older sister could have been her twin.. It was freaky… and I don’t mean the slight similarities you get from strong genes… I have heard all my life that my aunts and momma look just alike, but I can see a difference…

that wasn’t true with my friend… I walked into her house and saw a picture of her sister for the first time, and I stood there staring, trying to decide why my friend’s picture looked off… it wasn’t until she told me it wasn’t her that I found out I was looking at someone else… her older clone… yep… very weird…

but I liked the idea for a story… in the Skymann family, you have some cousins that similar in that way that strong genes will let you know that someone is related … but with the brothers, I used what I had seen in that picture of my friend’s older sister… clones… okay, not really clones, but they all four look enough alike for people that don’t know them personally to get confused…

that’s what happens in this first story… Andrew – one of the twins, screws up while trying to ask out Brigit… then she runs into Samuel, and he is too cocky for words, and aggravates the hell out of her because she thinks it is Andrew… then, to make matters even worse, she runs into a laid back Marcus… Poor Marcus… by then she has had enough… thankfully, Jacob finds a way to meddle in Andrew’s life, to find a way to convince Brigit to give him a shot… Andrew will finally get the girl, that’s if her stalker doesn’t get her first… muhahahaha

Hopefully, this will keep my mind occupied while I wait to hear what my publisher thinks about Southern Discoveries: Book Two – Finder’s Keepers… and yes, I think I have finally settled on a title…. Twin Findings just felt like it needed to be the title of book three or four… okay, back to the edits…

i would love to hear from you... feel free to comment!!
