It's very early. I've been awake since 3 AM with the baby, and my knees are killing me.
We had a full day yesterday. Hubby, the kids, and I went to Antique Alley and browsed around a while. I was looking for these certain little finger bowls to replace the lost china pieces in my wedding set, but they no longer had the set at the particular store I had seen them in before. I guess someone else lost all their finger bowls too. ^_^
Ah well, it wasn't a total loss. We dropped by Books A Million on our way back through the college end of town, and I bought a copy of Sexy Beast, by Kate Douglas. (It's actually an anthology but I don't have it nearby to get all the names off the cover and I'm a lazy slackass not about to go digging around for it at 5 AM pre-coffee. So bear with me...)I was browsing the book once I got back in the Jeep and noticed the freebie excerpt at the back (yes, I read those things!), and saw it was Undressing Mercy by Deanna Lee--my publisher boss at Cobblestone Press. Pretty cool, no? I thought it was, especially since I wasn't expecting it.
On the way home, I rode in the back with the baby and let the guys have the front seats. I did as much writing as I could, and did some proofing on the sheets of Wicked Temptation that I brought with me. It didn't seem like I managed a lot at the time, but when I got home I noticed I had something like 5 pages worked up. *booty dance* I also figured out the problem with chapter four and made a ton of notes to direct me in fixing it tomorrow--erm, later today. (Caffeine, please!) I'll have only one more chapter to write after that--the ending chapter. The others in between are finished and only need to be proofed and reproofed, and probably clipped and snipped and edited. But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. :P
Oh, before I forget... I got my release date for Bonding Experience the other day. It's scheduled to be out August 18th! :)
