I'm just checking in quickly to report that, yes, I am still alive. I am finishing up the last 9 chapters of WAIT FOR DUSK at the moment. The book is due back to my editor on Monday and I am determined to have it waiting in her inbox when she gets in the office. Looking ahead, I've got one completely new chapter to write, several chapters to tweak, and the ending to rearrange. Can I do it in just under four days? Yes, I know I can.
Unfortunately, that means that I'm not going to be doing anything else until then. I am behind on my emails. My house looks like a bomb exploded in the center of it, I'm afraid to go in my kitchen, and I keep forgetting to do that whole shower thing. Yes, the farthest I have been from my computer since Sunday has been out to my mailbox. This is the glamorous life of the professional writer.
As soon as the book is done, I'm heading out to buy cat food, people food, and mail an enormous stack of books to some contest winners. Sorry about the delay. I swear they will all be in the post by this weekend at the latest.
In addition, I've got a video to edit. I recently visited a location that appears in PRAY FOR DAWN (due out this summer) and I shot some video of the place. As soon as the edits are done, I'll be working on this and posting it to the site.
