Thank You! xoxo

Thank you all so much for all your congratulations and good wishes on my recent sale to Berkley Heat! You helped make a special time even more fabulous and I'm very lucky to have so many wonderful friends in the writing community.

So, what have I been up to this last week. Mainly, I'm writing like a crazy woman trying to finish my current book. Today I hit 82k, so it's been a good week for me word count wise but ack! Still have lots to go before I get to the end.

But I love reaching this stage of the book, as I gallop toward the finishing line. I find it so exciting and can't think of anything but my characters and their world and the problems they have yet to overcome to find their Happy Ever After (and I'm still hoping like mad my muse knows how that's going to pull together). I forget to buy bread and milk when I go shopping, but I recall obscure details of my hero and heroine's life while poking around the frozen food section so it all balances out in the end!!!

I love that stage, too, Christina -- enjoy it? What's your new book about?

Cathryn Brunet said...

82K? Wow, you're really close to the end. I love that stage of the book too. It's always really exciting to see that hard won finish approaching.

Good luck, Christina. I'm sure your muse will have it all sorted when the time comes.

PS. Can't wait to see your first Berkley book cover. Any ideas when that will be?

Christina, I'm still dancing for you! One week and counting so far...I'll be toned and ready for Dancing and I Know Stars soon! ;)

Helen, this is my angel book. I've been toying with the idea for two years, and it's finally got written!!

Cathryn, I think it's pulling together now :-) I don't know when I'll see the Berkley cover, but I'm just about wriggling with excitement at the thought of it!!

Hhahaa, Cari!! I'm still dancing too (except I'm not a pretty sight when dancing!!)
