We’ve got winners for the second and third photo contest!! CGarcia, and AZiegler! for their deserted mall and mourning vampires! Congratulations both of you, and thank you everyone who entered. This has been so much fun from my end of things, I hope you guys are having fun, too. Garcia and Ziegler will be getting a copy of THE HOLLOWS INSIDER when it comes out, and each of them can choose a print from the BLOOD WORK pages as an extra thank you. (Just let me know which one you want, and I’ll set it aside for you.)
I’m still taking photos for protesters and building/bridge /street damage until Monday. I’ve no shots of protesters yet, so it’s wide open. (rules, how to enter, what I’m looking for) Good luck!
Also, if you have a young adult reader in the house, or you’re just young at heart yourself, I’ve got something kind of cool for you today! The dark days of summer has a couple of apps available! I’m not an app person myself, but I took a look at them over at the iTunes store, and it says you can “Browse and read first chapters, connect with the authors through Livestream & Twitter, access tour information, and much more – all for FREE!” Sounds good to me. There’s like 13 authors/books involved, so it’s a nice package of stuff and might keep your son or daughter reading all summer. Here’s the link to check it out.
This morning, I’ve got a foggy, foggy sunrise, which doesn’t surprise me, seeing as it’s rained for the entire week. But I have a feeling that it’s going to burn off and I’ll have sun the rest of the day. I really need it. I’ve been working on the last brush through A PERFECT BLOOD’s editorial rewrite, and I have to push through the last few chapters today to hit my goal of finishing. 100 pages in a day of “brush-through” is not hard. 100 pages for five days is, and my mind is weary, but the story is strong. (grin) I threw out so much useless crap it was amazing. Most of it was actually needed until I tossed one little element, and then the dross fell away to leave the shine. Looks better, feels better. Still needs tweaking . . . But not until my thoughts have a chance to rest for a bit.
