The Fork is Out!

My Dangerous Pleasure is essentially done. I now have a week for final tweaks. I’ll post the fork pic when I actually send off the MS.

Today– ok, technically yesterday given that it’s 12:37 AM –I deleted one chapter, then rewrote the last three and ended up plus 2000 words. And that despite procrastination.

In other news, I have heard some early feedback about My Immortal Assassin and it makes me very happy. No official reviews yet, but the twitter early warning system is in effect. The hopeless pathetic part of me is whispering that maybe my twitter follower ARC readers don’t want to hurt my feelings and that’s why they’re saying good things. Only, would not silence be the better solution rather than a big fat lie? Yes, Writers Neurosis is in full effect.

Anyway, if you ‘d like to find out for yourself, you can enter my ARC contest from the previous post. Also, just FYI, the bird in that picture is a female Oriole and the bottle it’s clinging to is full of sugar water, not plain water. Lastly, I can represent to you that about 10 years ago the Audubon Society itself confirmed that Jewel central was the Northernmost point confirmed for the North American Oriole. We have two kinds that show up here; The North American and the Hooded Oriole. I don’t know which that is because it’s female. The males are easy to distinguish.

Anyhow, off to bed for me. Tweaking revisions for a week, then the fork.

  1. I need to track down other ARC holders and offer them significant amounts of money for privilege of reading their ARCs of MIA. I think I’m bordering on stalker and creeping myself out a little. o.O

    I’ll watch for the fork so I can cheer for the third book’s doneness. 🙂 Hooray for being so close to the end.

    Emily: if you haven’t yet, enter the ARC contest. The fork book (heh!) is the 4th, My Dangerous Pleasure.

    Natascha: it feels REALLY good to be done with a little time to spare.
