I’m mailing out the contest winners’ books today — unless you are international, then I’ll be going back to the post office on Monday. Congrats again to everyone who entered!
I’ve also been tagged by Lara Adrian. *shakes fist* This meme is to describe five crazy things about myself. It was surprisingly hard to come up with five. I’m well-adjusted. Totally.
Crazy #1: I wrote all of Colin’s POV scenes in DEMON MOON using British spelling that I learned from Harlequins while growing up (I always had a lot of red marks on my papers because I read so many of them, the spelling sunk into my brain). Part of it was to help me focus on his voice and diction that much more. Part of it was just because it was fun. I did remember to change most of the spelling back to American before sending in the manuscript … but not all of it. There’s a kerb lurking in there, a few colours and flavours, and a grey or two. (Actually, I still automatically spell gray, grey. That’s one I’ve never dropped.)
Crazy #2: Missy.
Crazy #3: You know when you eat popcorn and a little bit of a kernel gets in your teeth and no matter how much you push at it with your tongue and brush your teeth and floss you can’t seem to get it out and then you have to take a toothpick and poke at it and it hurts because your gum is a little swollen by then, but you still have to poke and poke? I LOVE THAT PAIN. I don’t really like popcorn, though.
Crazy #4: I buy presents for my characters, and then cry when I get to the cash register and realize my characters aren’t real. HAHA! Just kidding. Although it’s true that after I researched a bunch of music and decided one of my characters listened to The Clash I bought some of their albums so that I could have a “feel” for what he was listening to and the lyrics — and I became a huge fan myself. I guess he just had really good taste.
Crazy #5: On Monday, I’m sending my book to Mrs. Giggles.
