Are you feeling the energy just pulsing our way from Bejing? I have always enjoyed the Olympics, but this year for some reason I am more hooked then normal. I’m sure it has something to do with the incredible Michael Phelps, and the incomparable Dara Torres, along with so many of our athletes, but for me, it goes deeper then the incredible feats of these Americans. For me, I look at all of their hard work, their determination, and their guts and realize what I have always known: We all are capable of gold!
My competitive nature has been rattled this past week, and with it the current story I’m working on, book three of the Blood Sword Legacy, is starting to take form. I knew who my hero was, but once again I found myself looking for his soul mate. And late last night I found her! She is a Welsh princess who has a mystic mystery about her that captivates my hero, Stefan, who is violent, dark and brooding but finds he wants her at all costs. And he goes to great lengths to have her. This is going to be one of those books that jumps from one emotional high to another only to plummet then to be resurrected again. I know what the black moment is, and it will come earlier in this story than normal, with the balance of the story being how these two reconcile after a heinous deed born of passion and greed nearly destroys them both.
I’m excited. Really excited. And while I have a lot on my plate right now, I feel like for the first time in a long long time, I can actually relax and write. I have only the final page proofs of TORMENT to go over, but I won’t see those for a few weeks. I also have a good friend of mine reading TORMENT and other than my editor and agent who love the book, her eyes are the only other ones to read. And since she writes historicals and is a fanatic about detail I am nervously awaiting her thoughts. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
I also wanted to pass along some sad news: 🙁 The Fog City Divas are having their final hoorah this month. Yep. We’re shutting down, but go on over and comment coz there is a huge book giveaway at the end of the month. I’m going to miss chatting with the goils, but, I’ll still be here, and hanging out over at Murder She Writes! And we’ll all still be Divas in our hearts!! Muwhahahahaha.
Okay, I do have some questions I will be answering on It’s Just Business Tuesday, so come on back, and check it out.
So, now with the Olympics nearly half over, what other events are you looking forward to watching?
