Ramblings


Good morning, I hope all of you had a great weekend. We were supposed to get rain every day, but it was kind enough to only come out at night, which worked out great for the impromptu party we had yesterday. It was great: family, grilled seafood, and a pool; never a bad combination. And my daughter got back from Texas early that morning, so what I thought was going to be a rather boring Sunday, ended up being one for the memory books. J
The line-up for this week is “Always do the thing that scares you” blog hop on July the tenth hosted by Justine Dell, and then on Friday I’ll be doing a review of the book CassaStar by Alex Cavanaugh. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while, as well as the second, CassaFire, so I’ll be ready for when CassaStorm comes out in September.

This week I’m working hard on line edits for the third book in my Newstead Trilogy. It was a lot easier with the first two, but with this last one I need to make sure all the twists are answered and make some kind of sense. It does in my mind, but getting it that way on paper is something different altogether. It’s hard because this is the last one and I don’t want it to end. I’ve grown rather attached to these characters and the idea of not spending several hours together each day makes me sad. Has that ever happened to any of you- the dread that comes as the last few pages are on the horizon?
