This morning I’m very excited to get to my desk. Yesterday I finally finished the latest run through of the Hollows book after A PERFECT BLOOD, and today I will write the new last chapter. I’m thinking I can use the original last chapter in a dream at some point. I don’t use lost chapters very often, and I don’t do dream sequences but rarely, but in this case, I think it will work perfectly in the last book. The original ending was so very happy, and though I have a happy new ending in mind that a lot of people are going to enjoy, (la, la la-a-a, la, la-a-a-a, la.) it doesn’t have the idyllic feel that the first did. It was almost a dream to begin with.
This new last chapter has been on my thoughts for at least three weeks, and I’ve gone through three incarnations of it in my mind as I weigh what I need to have in it, who needs to be there, and what has to be accomplished. Once I have that, I have to figure out where to set it, and that seems to be the problem. I don’t like going somewhere new for the last chapter, but I’ve done it before, so it’s not out of my writing character. Today is going to be exasperating, hair pulling, and absolutely wonderful.
The interviews and videos made at Comic Con are starting to pop up! First is an interview I did with Thea at Book Smugglers. Book Smugglers is a well-known blog focusing on genera fiction, and it was an honor that I was asked to talk to them. NEW YORK COMIC CON 2011: A CHAT WITH KIM HARRISON
I also have a three-part, publisher-sanctioned, commercialized video of the last panel, WE’RE NO ANGELS. It is kind of clunky at the start, and the focus isn’t that great, (at least on my machine) There’s also a book in front of my face the entire time, which might be why I didn’t have a clue they were making this. But it makes for a good listen, at the very least. WE’RE NO ANGELS.
