Had a full weekend and I’m a little tired, but I’m working. The weekend fired me up. So, I’ve been outlining my three Nocturne Bites ideas then tonight I plan to jump back into BOAA–the second in my UF series. I really feel this book is going to flow faster and better than the last one. The characters are already stronger and their relationships are getting more intense. Man, I love this work!
Spending time with an agent and editor in a small setting like we had over the weekend was fantastic.
I’m still only seven weeks out from major surgery, so sitting up half the night with Terri Friday probably wasn’t the best idea, but damn if I didn’t enjoy it. We don’t see each other nearly enough and I love her like crazy! By lunch yesterday, I was exhausted and punchy, but once I had some food, I was good to go and went ahead and pitched at the last minute. You know, I think that’s the best way to do it. No nerves beforehand.
It went well. The editor seemed interested in the story, so we’ll see. 🙂
I enjoyed hanging with the group. Got to know our new member, Kevin Adkisson, and am now pulling for him. His book sounds great! He is a very good sport. When you have that many women together, the conversation goes soooo female and he didn’t blink. Laughed a lot, though.
OKRWA really is a wonderful group. We share in all successes and push hard for each other. I enjoyed hanging with Rachel yesterday–we spent most of the afternoon together. Had a blast, as always, with Gena. The woman should be illegal. Oh, and you simply MUST go to Jill’s site and watch her new Author Talk video with PC and Kristen Cast. PC and Kristen are OKRWA members and the latest to hit the New York Times!!!!!!! I forgot my camera, so as soon as members start posting pics, I’ll share links.
