My new manuscript survived its first beta read. Whew!
But because I’m my own harshest critic, now it’s time for editing, editing. That’s what my life is all about right now. I spent all day revising the climax of my manuscript, and finally put it away at 9pm, still not satisfied. Two minutes after I walked away, the solution hit me. Funny how that happens. I’ll sit at the computer, wracking my brain, determined to finish just this scene, when what I really need is to just stop thinking about it.
So because I’m going crazy here in editing-mode, there isn’t as much time for blogging these days… But I would be remiss if I didn’t mention two really exciting things: Practice Makes Perfect got a starred review from Booklist, and Just the Sexiest Man Alive received a whopping 98 from Mrs. Giggles! I was just so thrilled to see both these reviews– in a crazy week dealing with endless editing, a cranky two year-old with a cold, and a cranky me (after said two year-old gave me his cold) these were just the things I needed to perk me up. So thanks Booklist and Mrs. Giggles!
And for those (several) of you who so highly recommended it, I just started reading Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard. I have to say– I am really, really enjoying this book. The sparring between the heroine and hero is right up my alley. So thanks everyone– keep those recommendations coming! And one of these days, I’m going to read my first paranormal, I swear…
Stay tuned– I’ll write more soon. I hope.
