This week has been a bit hectic, both at the day job and the run-up to NaNoWriMo and of course, Halloween. My neighborhood gets approximately eighty-thousand trick-or-treaters so it’s an event that must be planned for and executed.
Anyway, I meant to do a What’s Up Wednesday but yesterday just got away from me. Really, there’s not a huge amount to report but here are the highlights: Continue reading
But it’s only a prelimary race . . .
In other words, the first draft of the next book is done, and I’m frantically finishing up this round of edits. Then off it goes to my editor and I hold my breath and wait. Continue reading
I have been laugh-out-loud crazy busy. Borderline psychotic, even. What kind of idiot thinks they can fully research and write a first draft in six weeks? This kind, apparently. But the really weird thing is, I woke in the middle of the night a few days ago and had a sudden revelation about a cool plot hook and ever since, the book has pretty much been writing itself.

Today, I’ll give you the scoop on what’s ahead.
First, I’ve got two new book signings to add to the list:
Barnes & Noble in Plymouth Meeting, PA 1-4pm
Barnes & Noble in Wyomissing, PA 1-4 pm
This won’t be news to you if you follow my other blog, but I’m boarding a plane today and going on an adventure! I’m hopping across the pond, and when I touch down on Thursday, my Thanksgiving meal will consist of a pint of Guinness in a cozy Dublin pub, where I’ll be listening and soaking in and writing, of course.

Things are clipping along with the revisions on Dreamer – and I am so torn! On the one hand, I can’t wait to give you all the rest of the story with Jessa, Finn and Ben, but at the same time. . .
I hate for it to come to an end. I can seriously write another ten books about Jessa’s adventures (hey, Mortal Instruments keeps on keeping on…) but this was a two book deal so I have to wrap it in a ribbon and call it done. Continue reading
