Some years ago, friends of friends mentioned they didn’t watch television. In fact, they announced there wasn’t even a television in their apartment. At that time, I found it hard to believe. At that time, I wasn’t a writer yet. I was writing but I hadn’t been published, so I could put it down without thought.
I now understand why they had no time for television. ;/ And I love not being hooked into network shows. I like not having to set aside time to catch up on the episodes via DVR. And my life has changed for the better, or at least I think so. While I may not get the latest pop reference, I’ve also discovered it doesn’t matter. Seriously, is it important I know who the hell Snookie is?
This picture was taken at a park along the St Croix river. The colors are glorious, despite the lack of sun.
If you’re actually down on the river, out on the dock and looking west, you can see this house. I WANT THIS HOUSE! Is this not the coolest thing ever? It would be like living in a big tree house. That little room over the water? MINE! I can see myself writing there long into the night.
If you follow me on twitter, you know I recently went kayaking. I took Suki with me. She sat on my lap as we went down the river. She was nervous at first but she relaxed into the trip, and when we stopped at an island, she jumped out and ran around, happy as hell. I took the picture of her in the kayak the next morning (because I neglected to think of it at the time we were on the river!).
Knight of Wands is in final edits. It should be released on schedule the first week of November. In the meantime, the last book in the trilogy has been named and I’ve done the cover for it.
I’m very excited to conclude the initial adventures of Grey and Cooper. Book 3 is gonna blow you away. I’m planning to release it early next year, perhaps on my birthday, which is Feb 3. What better way to celebrate?
Joyfully Jay reviews Three of Swords. Mostly, they liked it. She actually said, “I loved it.” The cliffhanger ending pissed her off though. Hm, wonder how she’ll feel about Book 2?
And in case you missed it, I posted an excerpt from Knight of Wands while visiting Elin Gregory’s comfy chair. Read the interview and get a sneak peak!
