Nothing has to change. We have great chemistry…


Misunderstandings are we common in romance novels. As an avid romance book lover, I look forward to reading tense moments between couples. I’m such a drama queen.

In this week’s #LAPLovenotes, I’m sharing a snippet of the spat between Onome and Nnamdi from Starting Over Again.

This occurred the morning after. How awkward! πŸ˜©πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ™‚

β€œOnome, nothing has to change. We have great chemistry. Why can’t we continue to explore that?”

β€œBut it’s against company policy for us to date.”

β€œWe won’t be dating, we’d just be—”

β€œOh,” Onome turned away from him, holding tightly to the bed covers. β€œSleeping together,” she finished for him.

β€œOnome, I didn’t mean it that way,” Nnamdi began, taking a step towards her. She held out her palm to stop him.

β€œNo, I know exactly what you meant,” Onome said, her tone surprisingly calm considering the anger boiling within her.

First beta reader feedback received!

Hi everyone.

I sent my manuscript out to beta readers last week and I’ve been jittery with nerves since then.

I’ll explain why. The current romance novel I’m working on dragged me off my pre-planned outline and far off the tangent for weeks. It took me a long time to go with the flow and accept my characters’ lead.

Eventually, I managed to complete the manuscript, but without confidence, because it didn’t follow my initial plan.

I recently received feedback from my first beta reader and I’m feeling energised again about the manuscript.

It wasn’t a “throw the entire story away” kind of feedback. And that’s a good start.

The plot is not bad at all. In fact, it was described as solid by the beta reader.

Based on that awesome and honest feedback, I only have to work on fixing a few plot holes, clarifying timeline issues, and getting rid of all my unnecessary adverbs. A mistake I often make.

All in all, I want my readers to know, I’m back on the grind, and I’m still at it.

Hopefully, you’ll get to share the journey of the characters in this story with me.

Till then, if you haven’t already read any of my stories, they are available on online platforms like kindle, nook, kobo, Okadabooks, Bambooks, iTunes, and as paperbacks from Amazon and RovingHeights, Nigeria.

Thanks for all your support.
