Oh happy day!

Finally…Johnny Depp (who I adore) is in the new Dark Shadows trailer! I’m so excited, see 😀  Now, I just need a movie buddy to laugh with.

Goodbyes…

Today, I went to visit an old friend at the cemetary.

Two years today, it’s been his home, and I just now felt up to saying goodbye. It was a lot harder than I expected.

I couldn’t say the words, but I managed to make the horrible truth a little more real. Sometimes letting go takes a while. This one particular death will always haunt me, I think…and maybe that’s why I’m procssing it in bits.

(All that stuff is his, by the way.)

But what is life without loving others and grieving their absence.

B&S 4 – Writing

I’m now past the halfway point on the first draft of Blood & Sex, Vol. 4. The last chapter almost put me into shock Sun, when Michael did something I had zero warning on. That has left me with a sense of dead because I have an ominous feeling about the end of the story.

Rewrites will abound on this one. I am getting only the main parts now. Lesser scenes and fine details will come in the next layer. Sometimes, I am amazed by how the story reveals itself.

Updates…

Im sitting at my laptop typing up editing notes. During this book Ive figured out it’s absolutely necessary for me to print and edit at least once. I need it on paper…it’s just how I roll apparently.

This book has been a slight deviation from my normal routine. The characters are drawn more from real people and situations, and it’s taken longer to develop, but I think it’s going to be better for it. LeAnne, this heroine, is not as much like me as the others. I suppose I’m growing as a writer.

Get ready for the next round, beta readers (my pretties!). The kitchen remodel put me a week behind, but I’m back on the ball again now.

Blood & Sex FOUR – Discussion

I’ve had lots of questions about the next book. Right now, it’s rolling along and I expect to be finished with the first draft this month. But you want details, right? *eyebrow wiggle*

I can honestly say that I have no flippin clue what’s happening. Oh, I did when I started out, but the characters wrestled the steering wheel away from me. Now, I know that the two main characters are both from out of town, and new to the group. One is a childhood friend of Tori. The other is an assassin sent to kill Michael.

Will Michael die? I’m not sure. I hope not. He and Tori have issues to settle, one of them being Jonas.   I do know that one of the main characters is going to die other than the possible Michael.

I can also say with some certainty that Arracado and Tori will be title characters in upcoming books. He is bugging me silly as I write.

So, post a comment with your thoughts. I’m eager to hear from you.
