Early Christmas Present

Santa Claus came early to my house today, disguised in the form of a FedEx man. Yup - a big box of real, actual copies of Dirty Little Secrets. They are as awesome in real life as they look in this photo:



New Book Word Count: 21,336
Line of the Day: My door opened and a brown bag came sailing in just a few seconds before Rayne appeared, her pink hair blazingly bright for so early in the morning.

With the arrival of the DLS copies, I really want to finish at least a crappy first draft of the new book. It's a bit like having a newborn and a toddler at the same time - it's hard to have the time to focus properly on either one. If I have one draft done, revisions are much easier for me and I can turn my complete attention to DLS when it launches in early Feb. Back to work!

On this date: In 1968, Apollo 8 leaves for the moon.
