Even though I still feel like crap with a cold that is hanging on and dogging me, I managed to have a couple of spurts of creative energy that enabled me to finish writing Barely Covered. Whew! Now I’m exhausted! But I just sent it off to my editor.
Now I can relax a bit and finish the wonderful murder mystery I’m reading, A Case of Two Cities, an Inspector Chen novel by Qiu Xiaolong. I’ve read almost all of the books in the series so far and have enjoyed them so much even though I read them very much out of order. It doesn’t matter though, because the characters are so alive to me after getting to know them that even when it’s out of order, my mind can fill in the blanks.
What’s my next project? I hope finally after about two years, to tackle Fantasy Thief. It’s one I’ve been stuck on, probably because I’ve gotten distracted by the White Tigers series I’ve loved working on so much. Now that the series is basically finished (there are a couple of other tales to write but they can wait for the moment), I can focus some attention on Fantasy Thief which I HOPE to send to Harlequin Blaze. Wish me luck!!
