Hey there!

Whew! This blog is dusty!

It's been a while since I've posted anything--I've been working on polishing DEFENSIVE GUN nice and pretty for my agent. It's funny how you read your MS a hundred times and every time you do, you find more ways to fix it. I hadn't looked at DG since a few months before I signed with Holloway Literary and I strongly believed it was as good as it was going to get. Fast forward to January of this year and I decide to give it one last read through and low and behold, I find all these great ways to make it even better and even added 2k in word count! Then, a few days after I send my agent an updated version, I get this crazy, wonderful idea to write two more books in the world of DG...companion novels I guess you could call them. I'm working on the first one right now--it's in its early stages so I don't want to say too much in case it doesn't pan out, but I'm having a great time writing it. And if it doesn't work out that's ok. It's still a great way for me to improve my craft.

As for reading, I've been doing some of that, too. I'm on book five in the OUTLANDER novels and I recently finished SOME BOYS by Patty Blount as well as an adult novel by Diane Chamberlain called THE SILENT SISTER. I just checked out KALAHARI by Jessica Khoury and I can't wait to dive into that! 

So, what's been going on with you, reader? Read anything good lately?
