Peeking ‘Round the Bend…


I had a bit of an epiphany yesterday. (I always love it when that happens, don’t you?)

The book writing continues and as the story progresses, I keep doing some soul searching for myself and for my characters. And when I did on Friday, something funny happened on the way to the forum with myself. I did a little “revising” of the outline and some shifting around as I determined a better sequence for some plot points, and I came to an unexpected conclusion:

I am much closer to the end of the first draft
than I originally thought…WHEEEEE!



I squealed.

This qualifies as squeal-worthy. (Not to be confused with sponge-worthy, although the Elaine Benes-coined term might be more suitable as I am feeling nearly orgasmic at this latest realization.)

For this reason, I said to myself – self, wouldn’t it perhaps be a nice idea to start sneaking out little snips, quips and scenes from the upcoming book to introduce the flavor, setting and characters for what will hopefully be a future inhabitant of your blog followers’ bookshelf or Kindle in time for summer?

Self agreed. And that is quite extraordinary because usually, she gives me a lot of shit frankly.

So…look for a first sneak peek coming your way…soon…very soon…like…TOMORROW. Shhhhh!

Happy reading!
