The Places I'll Be...





Tomorrow (Weds. the 10th) I'll be on a live chat at 8 CST (6 Pacific) on the Good Addiction forums! http://agoodaddiction.forumotion.net/forum.htm Register to join (it's easy)!We'll talk about books, writing, hoarding - anything! Bring questions and come along so I won't feel lonely and unloved.

I'll also be doing a live chat with the LateBloomer Online gals on Thursday the 18th at 5:30 Pacific/8:30 EST. Even though DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS isn't paranormal they still want to talk to me, and I'm honored.

There is also a super-secret in-person event coming up on May 5th - can't say just what yet, but if you're near Berkeley that day, put it on your calendar. More info to come...

New book info (still sadly untitled):
Word Count: 69,093 (okay, that's painful. I'll get past 70k before bed tonight.)
Line of the day: His scent on my body was like the pain of a loose tooth that you just couldn't help prodding with your tongue - sharp and severe but addictive.

I can see daylight on this project and it's getting exciting. Just a few more scenes to go, although I don't know if that means two more chapters or five. That's one of the things that you don't really find out until you're in it. Then I get to go back, rip it apart and try to take the suck out of it. Because there's always some in it during a first draft. Hopefully, there won't be any when I'm done.

The only thing I worry about is that this new book is SO very different from DLS that some people might be disappointed. Of course, other people who felt that DLS was too dark and depressing (I don't think of it that way funnily enough) might just like this one better.

On this date: In 1959, Barbie made her debut.

Well, gosh, don't worry about the new WIP being too different. That's as it should be. You don't want to go on Oprah someday and be introduced as "that writer lady who does all that dark and depressing stuff on hoarders." :) Good luck on pushing the mileage up over 70K.

Cheers,
Kristen

Thanks Kristen. Just worried about confusing people I guess. Changing subjects is a lot of fun for the writer though...
