Done, Now What?

Twenty-four days, fifty thousand words, it is done-now what?

I have completed writing my next book. I buckled down for the first twenty-four days in April to complete it. Yay me! Now I begin the hard part (or the hard part for me). Editing proves a challenge. I find myself easily distracted during this process.  The excitement of writing no longer keeps me focused on the book until four a.m. Reading through the book three more times looking for typos, grammatical errors, plot holes, etc. is a chore for me. I do keep some excitement in trying to get a copy out to my Beta Readers as soon as possible. I can’t wait for them to read, share what works, what questions they have, etc. It is just getting from the first draft to the Beta Reader draft that I struggle with. This is when writing feels like a ‘real job’ to me. But I must keep going. 
So, enough complaining you say-we want more details about the book.
I am only willing to share the title with you at this point. I’m planning a sort of strip-tease in sharing of details on this stand-alone book. (What is a stand-alone? Some of you may ask. It means it is not a series. It is one book and done.) 
The moment you have been anxiously awaiting…
Boxers or Briefs is the title of my current work in progress.
More details about this book will be uncovered in each new blog post in the days and weeks to come. Make sure you follow my blog in order to keep up on all of the latest news on all things Haley Rhoades.

Haley Rhoades’ writing is another bucket-list item coming to fruition, just like meeting Stephen Tyler, Ozzie Smith and skydiving. As she continues to write romance and young adult books, she plans to complete her remaining bucket-list items, including ghost-hunting, storm-chasing, and bungee jumping. She is a Netflix-binging, Converse-wearing, avidly-reading, traveling geek.
A team player, Haley thrived as her spouse’s career moved the family of four 10 times to four states. One move occurred eleven days after my C-section. Now with two adult sons, Haley copes with her newly emptied nest by writing and spoiling Nala, our precious Pomsky. A fly on the wall might laugh as she talks aloud to her fur-baby all day long.
Haley’s under five-foot, fun-size stature houses a full-size attitude. Her uber-competitiveness in all things entertains, frustrates, and challenges family and friends. Not one to shy away from a dare, she faces the consequences of a lost bet no matter the humiliation. Her fierce loyalty extends from family, to friends, to sports teams.
Haley’s guilty pleasures are Lifetime and Hallmark movies. Her other loves include all things peanut butter, Kansas City Chiefs, St.Louis Cardinals, Star Wars, mathematics, and travel. Past day jobs vary tremendously from an elementary special-education para-professional, to a YMCA sports director, to a retail store accounting coordinator, and finally a high school mathematics teacher.
Haley resides with her husband and fur-baby in a south Des Moines suburb. This Missouri-born girl enjoys the diversity the Midwest offers.
