Almost over…
Friday, March 19th, 2010

Tonight around midnight, when the red-headed hellion arrives home from work, I’m packing up and heading home. I’m supposed to attend the monthly meeting of the Diamond State Romance Authors tomorrow morning, but that’s looking iffy because all I want is uninterrupted sleep—about 10 hours worth—before I pry my eyes open. Last night, I pulled down web sources for my daughter’s college assignment, and stayed up to help her work on it. She was too exhausted to get it done quickly on her own. Our heads didn’t hit our pillows until 2:30. The 6:30 alarm came ALARMINGLY fast. Couldn’t resist that. Sorry.

Dogs are walked, baby fed. Wonder if she will oblige me by going back to sleep so I can nap a little this morning. Do you know how you start to ache all over when you’re really, really tired? I should probably try to get a shower and wake up enough to write, but I’m not sure my brain’s gonna cooperate.

I should have the copyedits for Darkness Captured (my September Avon release) waiting for me when I arrive home. Can’t wait to see what changes the editor wants. Or if she wants huge revisions. My guess is not because she would have gotten them to me sooner if there were huge issues. I’ll be surprised if that’s the case though because DC is way out there. My heroine ends up in the Land of the Dead and has to be rescued. All kinds of strange things and creatures, and kinky sex happen. Oh wait, she should know by now that’s what happens in one of my “dark” books.

    Sonya! Thanks so much! I’ll be ready to unplug the phone and pull the covers over my head.

    Peaceful slumbers, DD! I am super intrigued by this Darkness Captured book. I’ve also been wondering what happened to the one with the psychic type cop with a drinking problem. You left me hanging as she’s fighting off ghouls in the graveyard!! What is that one called and when do I get to buy it :)

    Rachel!! I’m so glad you’re intrigued about DC—at least one person will buy it now! HaHa

    As to the other story, I still haven’t found a home for that project. I have 100 pages of manuscript and still have hope some editor will love it.
