Hi,

The edits on Book II that appeared to be taking forever were finally done last week and tided over into our beach holiday. I was hoping to have them finished before leaving, but life never quite works out the way you want it to.

So there I was, for 3 days in a row, working on the final 50 pages and cursing myself. The beach glistened outside our condo balcony, the waves continued to roll back and forth, licking the sand in its path and there I was editing the manuscript.

I thought it would get easier - and why not? The initial setup of the book, characters, plot, were over! All that remained was the climax and resolution. It took forever to resolve and by the time I was done I couldn't believe that my heart was pounding - the way it originally did - when I did the first write-up.

YAY! They're done! I sent the ms. off and am back at work on Bk III. Starting all over again. Here we go!

Hi,

I have a blog post due for Sat, July 28... but so much has happened and stalled me over the last week that I don't know if it'll even get done.

I didn't get much editing on Bk II done because of 2 birthdays in the family. Then I'm signing up for a blog tour and that took a while to understand and figure out.

I'm thinking of an excerpt from DUTY AND DESIRE that needs to go for the post and trying to understand what readers want in short, snappy posts. Dialogue? Description? Narration? Tense conflict? Character revelation?

Hmmm... let's see. I guess I'm going to have to revert to DUTY AND DESIRE and flip through the pages and scenes once again to see what works. What do you think?
