If you stopped by yesterday, you would have heard me moaning about getting back to my keyboard, as in “I can’t wait” not “I don’t want vacation to end.” Trust me, I like my weekends, but I’m all funned out right now. (grin) So yesterday I got back to work and, as expected, cranked the pages. Didn’t get out of my office until 8:30 pm, but I put the smack-down on the keyboard and got a whopping number of pages under my belt. Holy smokes, it felt good to get something done. If not for Guy making dinner, it would have been cheese sandwiches. (grin) I likes cheese.
So today, as I try to wash-rinse-repeat, I’m hoping I get out of my office a wee bit earlier. The end is my favorite part of the book to write, and the long hours just seem to happen. Everything is in place, there is a clear direction of action, and it’s pure movement for the last 100 pages. Ahhh, I love to start things, but I love the endings just as much. Rachel, Rachel, Rachel . . . What have you done now?
So instead of prattling on about nothing, which I managed to do anyway, I did want to bring to your attention a new release by Faith Hunter. If you’ve been following her new Jane Yellowrock series, the latest, BLOODCROSS is out today. (happy dance!) I read the first, SKINWALKER, and loved it. Kick-ass heroine, deadly vampires with all their glorious hierarchies, and a cop, all mixed up in New Orleans. What’s not to love? She’s got a few contests going over at her blog today if you’re interested.
