Happy Thanksgiving, book friends!
I hope you're with family, chosen family, or friends this holiday if you celebrate. If you're not in the US, I hope you're looking forward to a lovely Fall weekend and a head start on holiday shopping.
This weekend, I'm spending four days with my writing buddy, Emma. She's plying me with music, muffins, and coffee while we chip away at words for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).
Sad to say, I'm about 15k behind on the word goal; however, I have a very nice start to a rewrite on one of my favorite books. It's something special I've been saving up for a time when I'd leveled up. So far, so good! More later when DRAFT has been achieved.
As for Taste the Dark, that's up next. I'll be sending it to my editor in the New Year for a thorough evisceration. It's truly and ironically the book that would not die. I might kill Akito just to get him to go away and Tzadkiel feels the same.
Honestly, though, I do love the book. I needed some real distance to see where the story needed to go. Perspective apart from everyone's expectations. I'll be digging into it after my upcoming birthday trip to London.
Want to get in touch?
If you're a reader or author who would like to share a cuppa while I'm in London, drop me a line using the web form. If you're keen to see snippets of my stuff as I work, feel free to join my closed Facebook Group. This is the only social media outlet other than Instagram where I post for the time being. It's much more intimate.
These are the musings of a cynical romantic. Heroes on the page may be closer than they appear.
