Wicked Temptation

Despite what the post date says on the blog, it's Tuesday the 15th. I saved this pic for another post, but decided it fits with my mood today, so I decided to use it.

I haven't blogged in a couple of days; I've been working almost nonstop since Saturday, and I just sent off Wicked Temptation to Cobblestone Press about thirty minutes ago. Today is the deadline, so I do believe for all standard purposes I made it. I don't think I could have cut it any closer, though.

I was up all night working on Chapter 3 (which had formerly been part of Chapter 4), and just this morning, I finished the final chapter. Whew! I am sooo tired, but at the same time I feel quite accomplished.

Last week, I was beginning to wonder if these characters were even worth writing about, then last night I was working on the chapter of doom and I hit this point where everything just seemed to mesh. From that point on, I couldn't help feeling that everything I'd gone through to write this book was worth it.

Now to wait for the bosses to decide.

In the meantime, I'm going to relax for a bit. Maybe spend a few minutes catching up with my friends on myspace, or reroot a cabbie or something. I've been so hung up on one thing, that I've let everything else go by the wayside. I didn't even realize it until last night Bonding Experience is coming out on Friday. *woohoo!*

On another note, today was oldest offspring's first day back to school. Oh man...I can't believe it. My son is in highschool!! *drags out rocking chair and walking cane* Mini offspring has been looking for his Bubba on and off whenever he stops to think about it.

I'm off for now. I know I promised to give my theory on why Dumbledore is not dead in HP6, but Mini-boy is wanting attention so I'm going to go play with him. If there's time tonight, I'll post again to try and catch up.


  1. Glad to hear you met the deadline!

    Aww, my 3rd child goes to big school next Sept. Sad.


  2. Woohoo! You finished it! Congrats! I know the big bosses will love it! *wg*

    Aaaawww... Mini-rocker misses his big bro. That's so cute! *g* I can imagine him calling Bubba and wandering why he's not around.

  3. Aw, M.E. I tell ya, it was rough to see son off this morning. We had a great summer and I already miss him being around the house!

    Tempest, poor mini-bub was going around calling for Big Bubba. He knows how to slide open his bedroom door and call in and look for him. :*)

  4. My son started jr high Mon. My youngest son keeps looking for him, too. Middle child (daughter) could care less. Must be a boy thing. :)

    Congrats on finishing the book! And congrats on your release this Friday! Whoo hoo!!!
