The finished manuscript of MORE THAN MOST

I’m delighted to share that I just finished MORE THAN MOST, the sequel to MORE. I’m having someone give it a final review this weekend, then it’ll be off to my editor. Hopefully I’ll know more about a release date before too long.

Prior to working with my editor, it’s around 94,500 words. All Richard’s point of view.

A part of me thought I might never…

Video I Love: Passionate Kissing

There’s not much I find sexier than a really good kiss. (If you put these two guys together, they somewhat remind me of Matthew from…

Another preview from MORE THAN MOST (More #2)

This is from the unedited manuscript. Please excuse any typos / changes.

I turned my back to them, but not before I spotted the shaking in Matthew’s shoulders. “Luke, do me a favor.”

“Yeah?”

“Hold him.”

“It’s not me he needs.”

I forced myself to look at Matthew again. He had the same expression on his face as the night we’d gone to the Haven to get Luke, not knowing whether Luke had fucked someone else or not. Only this time, that hurt, terrified look was even more pronounced.

Because of me.

No matter how angry I was, I couldn’t keep away. I crossed the distance in two steps and gathered him into my arms.

Matthew just stood there, arms at his sides, tense for several achingly long seconds. Then his arms came around me, and he buried his face in my chest.

Right now I’m putting the final polish on MORE THAN MOST. (I’m so thrilled with how it’s turned out and I can’t wait to share it!) At this point in the process, I usually spend my days walking around the house reading the manuscript aloud. I look for anything that stands out: repetitive or missing words, odd phrasing in dialogue, continuity issues, moments…

Preview from page 77 of MORE THAN MOST (More #2)

I was tagged over at Facebook for the 777 thingy, and I thought I’d share it here as well.

The procedure: go to page 7 or 77 in your WIP, scroll down seven lines and copy and paste the next seven.

This is from page 77 of my almost-finished WIP, MORE THAN MOST, the sequel to MORE. (It’s told from Richard’s point of view, and Matthew’s asleep in this part of the scene.)

Luke paused, his fingers lingering above Matthew’s lips. “If he ever—” He swallowed down whatever he was about to say.

I slid into the bed behind him and spooned him, an arm around his waist. “We won’t let anything like that happen.”

He nodded, but he had to be thinking the same thing. Even from prison, if Luke’s father wanted to make our lives hell, he could. He could hire someone to get to us anytime, anywhere.

This is from the unedited manuscript. I’ll be sharing a longer excerpt in my upcoming newsletter. You can sign up to receive a copy of the newsletter here: http://www.sloanparker.com/news.htm Be sure to click the link in the confirmation email.
