But I do sometimes forget that Characters D and F are in a scene...and then have to go back and ensure they get worked back into the scene smoothly. As for a special technique, I guess it's just all in my head, so it's all in my head, if you know what I mean. LOL(less)

Penguin & DAW control that, so, if the sales on Touched were good, hopefully Tango will get its shot. (They make great Christmas gifts...just sayin'. LOL)(less)

Happy Thursday! Hope everyone's been having great weeks and all that since I've been rather silent. (Hey, your only child getting married tends to distract, what can I say?) But I'm back and there's so much news I'm honestly not sure where to start. But start we shall!

Eleanor Roosevelt

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Oh, that's awesome, and I'd love to stop by! I'm on deadline for Book 8/Alien Research right now, but later in the month should work out great. Book 7/Alien in the House releases on May 7th, so later April is a good time. :-D

This would be my first Goodreads book club visit, so I'm not sure on how it all works. LOL Do we set up a time, just post randomly throughout the day, etc.?

Looking forward to it, whatever it turns out to be!

Love,
Gini
