It’s April and after five months of snow storms, it’s been nice to see the sun and feel a warm rain again. The snows are nearly gone and I can’t say I’m sorry to see them go. I actually got to wear my new spring jacket to town Thursday. Yep, cheap thrills. Tee hee
Speaking of thrills, check out Old Family Mansion. (shameless self promotion time)
As most writers know, inspiration can come from anywhere. Here’s an example. While accompanying Charis through a camera shop a young man commented on the necklace I was wearing. (A Viking knit from The Purple Raven) as we talked about jewelry he told me of how he cannot wear most metals, they tarnish and pit within hours.
Apparently, he has a rare body chemistry that causes the effect. He said they call him a ruster. I warned him he would end up in a book in the near future. Keep an eye out for Rusty when I switch back from romance to sci-fi. There have been stories running through my head ever since that conversation.
Okay, now for the check-in. In spite of enjoying the milder weather and still fighting that damned cough, I did manage the ten thousand word count I set as my weekly target. Go me. JI am past the midway point on the second book of the new series. Old Family Mansion will be followed by The Blue Rider sometime in the next few months. Keep an eye out.
On another note, we recently re-released Phoenix with a new cover and it is finally starting to get the recognition it deserves. Life is good.
So, for this coming week…yep another ten thousand words or bust. That’s the target. So, until next week, drop by and say hello; I’d love to hear from you.
