I managed over 1000 words on my alien novel for EC today - which just out of interest, my mother read the first three chapters of (long story, but it was *not* meant to happen). I also wrote just under 1000 words for my co-written book, Believe.
These two books couldn't be more different. My alien book (working title: Abducted) is possibly my sexiest book yet with three hero's and one heroine.
Believe has no sex scenes whatsoever, and possibly won't-though it definately won't be marketed as an inspirational.
