Hi Guys!

Good Morning. It's Thursday. For some reason I keep trying to make it Friday instead. SIGH. Not that I'm looking forward to the weekend or anything! LOL.

Writing has slowed a bit. But I know where it's going and I know it's there. The trick is that this is an entirely new world. That means I'm doing a lot of backstory and world building -- things that won't be used in the book, but help me relate to the characters and their history with each other, world rules, etc. For example, The Battle of Kittens is something that happened in the past. It was, in fact, one of the most ludicrous situations the heroine was ever in. It also turned into a real political mess. It will never see the light of day in the book, but it is important to her history with Pug and their relationship. Another is the situation of how she met Pug in the first place. (Pug, by the way, is a gargoyle -- one of the smaller stone trolls.) All of it is fun to think about, and useful in the grand scheme of things, but it doesn't get the pages out. It just makes me more able to get the pages out later.

I'm HOPING to successfully change the avatar for this blog. I'm wanting to add the cover for Touch of Evil, which is coming out in March. We'll see. For some reason I'm not nearly as good with computers as I used to be. I think it's a combination of (1) lack of concentration, and (2) I don't have nearly as good of equipment to work with as I did at the university. Still, I SHALL PREVAIL. (RAWR) (Picture me standing with my fist pumped and a red cape billowing behind me.

Cie,

I love gargoyles! You'll have to keep us all appraised of the progress on this new WIP.

Happy Weekend! (mine will be, we're going to Underworld: Evolution tonight. Woot!)
