It’s crunch time, guys. I’ve taken off the next four days from work to finish Book 3 (and maybe even come up with a title), and get it into my beta’s hands by Friday. Last week, I was writing the ending, and my MC surprised me by changing some things – which really worked better, and were more true to his character. Whenever that happens, I usually just go with it. I know there are a couple more scenes that need work, then I’ll be adding in some world-building, and tweaking some of the characters. If I’m slow to reply to comments or get to your blogs, you’ll know I’m hunkered down working.
Maybe six weeks ago, I mentioned I’d applied for Heartland Book Festival, scheduled for September. This will be the first year, with Friday being Children’s Day, and Saturday open to the public. I was thrilled to receive an email accepting me! It’s only an hour away, and I’m always excited to talk to kids about reading – adults, too, of course. Heck – I’m excited to talk to anyone about reading and books anytime, anywhere.
Is anyone else excited for NOS4A2? I recorded it last night, but haven’t watched it yet. I’ve had the book in my TBR for more years than I care to admit, but – it’s vampires. I’m so excited to watch vampires again! Well, I also just finished What We Do in the Shadows, a hilarious take on vampires. If you missed it, go forth and find it. Some episodes were better than others, but I had some great laughs.
Wish me luck on finishing. Have a great week!
