How to Handle Pressure: Writing Under Deadlines – Pepper Winters @PepperWinters

How to Handle Pressure: Writing Under Deadlines

This one is my hardest. I wrote Tears of Tess in 7 weeks. Now this wasn’t a few days a week, nope, it was 14 hours a day, dreaming about it, jotting notes while eating, and constantly immersed in my story world. My poor husband picked up all the slack and if wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have eaten and the house would’ve grown into a laundry jungle.

I set a quick deadline for Tears of Tess to see if I could do it. In hindsight I wished I hadn’t as those 7 weeks were extremely hard and I need a mental break more than I ever have before, however, it also gave me a huge sense of accomplishment.

My advice for writing under deadlines is to set realistic dates and stick to them. Don’t push them out. Announce your release date to fans so you HAVE to stick to it and make sure you book in editors and cover artists well in advance so you meet your self imposed dates. J

Tears of Tess

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility.

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?
