I was feeling better today, so I didn’t read as much (I’m starting on THE SCHOOL FOR HEIRESSES anthology today, finished Kathleen O’Reilly’s BEYOND BREATHLESS (Harlequin Blaze) last night, and it was as good as the review that made me notice it in the first place said it was). I’ll probably be reading a lot more short stories and anthologies from here on out, because that seems to be the way of it while I’m writing.
I also got back to work on DEMON NIGHT after about a month away from it (doing promo for DEMON ANGEL and revisions/copy-edits for DEMON MOON) — I reread the proposal and synopsis, all of my notes, put my collage back up on my computer desktop and updated the pictures to fit the story better, and started editing a scene that I’d written for the proposal but that got pushed back because it dragged down the pacing after the first chapter (the proposal is three chapters — the scene now fits in chapter four). Tomorrow I’ll begin writing the scene that goes in between the end of the proposal and the moved-to-chap-four scene.
I gotta say … I love this story and the characters. It’s fun as all hell, I think a lot of my pacing problems won’t be such an issue (crossing fingers) and I love where I’m going with the overall mythology of the series. It’s not under contract yet, so I haven’t gotten the official “go ahead and write the rest of it” but I’ll keep working anyway.
