* * * * *

I’ve had my head down, ignoring the emails piling up in my inbox, ignoring the family as I finish up my current book. This morning, I wrote THE END. I still have to read through the book and figure out how to plump it up with 3000 more words to meet my word count requirement, but for all intents and purposes, it is finished! And thankfully, I love it. The characters are ones I fell in love with in the first story, Shattered Souls. Cait’s brittle and grouchy. Sam’s a rock. She softens in this book. Acknowledges the fact she can’t live without him. She’s put through a sequence of events that cements her love for him. And there’s humor woven in with the dark parts. I think you’ll like it.

I’m toying with calling this one Lost Souls. What do you think?

While I wrap this one up, I have to think about the next story that’s due way too soon. I’ll be rushing through it, and hope I like the results as much as I did for LS. We’ll see. It’s too early in the story to know. Needless to say, I’ll be buried in writerly stuff for a while longer.

For all you writers, my sister and I are starting the next round of “Write 50 Books a Year.” If you’re not on the loop, follow the link. Want to learn how to be a more productive, more focused writer for the new year? This is the class for you. Join today! Best part—it’s free!

    Wow! 50 Books a Year, huh? I NEED this workshop! Thanks for sharing the link!

    I’m so pleased you’re focused on finishing this latest book and can’t wait to buy a copy. I like the title Lost Souls. Evocative of an atmosphere and lets you focus on the redemption of the lost. Loff!

    Happy writing!
