Another reason I haven't blogged since December is I've been working very hard on book 3 of my Healer series - TASTE OF DEATH. It's due out at the end of 2013, but my editor wants it by April 1st! No fooling! I have a week...er...a couple days to finish the first draft and make some sense of it! It's a mess right now - it's going to need some major revisions. Which is why it's due April 1st - I need time to revise based on my daughter, son, husband, editor and agent's comments. The art department needs time to design the cover art, the sales staff needs time to get orders from book stores, the marketing department needs time to develop a fabulous marketing plan, etc... All before the book can be published for you to read.
At one point during the last month, I stopped to take a break and looked at my word count. 88,888 words - I thought it was a good sign so I took a picture! My novels usually run about 100,000 words. Right now I'm at...95,909 words.
Of the two dune grass with the ocean in the background - which one do you like the best? I'm curious since the colors and composition are different.
Okay - that's it for this series of excuses...er...explanations on why I haven't blogged since December 2012. I hope to blog on a regular basis from now on, but I'm not going to make any promises!
