Slammin’ Jammin’ and Hammin’
Okay, so if you are reading this on Monday, go on over to Murder She Writes and check out the new site and the new goils! I’m so excited. I am very happy to already call Rocki, Toni and Sylvia dear friends, and am so excited to get to know Debra Webb and Heather Graham!! So, this means I will be blogging only every other Friday at MSW, which is cool, I’ll be sure to blog here on the opposite Friday.
I’m really excited right now. The wedding is coming along really nicely. The best part is I can pay for everything! I was sweating it there for a few weeks, but despite the economy, I have pulled a rabbit out of my hat. Whew. I can’t wait to see my brother, and neither can the kids. My oldest son thinks his uncle is some kind of playmate. All of the guys are getting kicked out of the house the night before the wedding and staying at a local hotel and well, I hope they show up in one piece the next morning!
I am sort of behind on MASTER OF CRAVING (the story lives up to the name btw) not so much in word count, I’m halfway there, but story wise I’m behind, and frankly, I’m going to need more room, like 10K more words. My historicals always come in just under 100K words, and if I can con my editor into say 5K over that, I’ll be a vera happy camper. The story has three very distinct acts and I want to give each its due. And BTW? The hot pic of the knight with the double swords? He bears a remarkable resemblance to Wulfson de Trevelyn, the hero in MASTER OF TORMENT.
So, life is chugging along at a nice clip. Since at this point I don’t have any questions for It’s Just Business Tuesday I’m going to talk about reviews. But if someone sneaks in a biz question by Monday night I’ll answer and post on Tuesday and chat about reviews Thursday.
So, now I am off to start a pot of Italian pork chops, a nice way to kick off the autumn menu and then back to the story. I so want a nice glass of Chianti, Nozzole Classico, is my fave, but when I drink wine I can’t write. I’m such a light weight!
So what’s cookin’ in your kitchen? Do you have any fave dishes you only cook when the weather cools?
PS, those crazy chicks over at WriteMinded are giving away a crap load of books this week and next. Go check them out!
