This is the newest addtion to our ever-growing family, Jaslyn. (She is named after her father, Jason.) A real cutie, she smile all the time. Her grandma is my middle daughter, Lisa, which, of course makes her another great-grandchild.
Today I had a haircut and while I was there the hairdresser told me that her friend really liked my book, Dispel the Mist, but her friend's husband loved it. While he was reading it he kept telling his wife, "Listen to this," and he'd read a paragraph or too. Thrilling words for the author.
I've actually started the book in the series that comes after the one that's expected in September. I don't have a title yet but I do have most of the characters in my head along with some ideas about where I'm going. Sometimes it works best when I just start writing and that's what I'm doing this time.
Once I get the words down, the story will begin to flow. Though titles used to come easily to me, nowadays I seem to have to work a lot harder to find the right one for the story.
I do need to get busy though, so I'll have a chapter to read each Wednesday night to my critique group. I'm nearly finished with the Rocky Bluff P.D. crime novel I've been reading to them. Of course I'll then have to go over it again--but that's something I can do in the evening. I like to write in the mornings, my best time.
Limiting my time on Facebook will help. Because of the blog tour I'm on, I need to promote each blog and Facebook is a great place to do it.
So that's my thoughts for the day.
