It’s 1:36 a.m. as I sit here typing away. I couldn’t sleep last night and found myself at my computer at 3:30 a.m., writing. The plan this weekend is for me to stay inside and hopefully finish the first draft of Chasing the Tide. If not finish, I’ll be putting a major dent in the word count.
I am officially obsessed. And I love that finally there are people in the world almost as obsessed as I am. Let me tell you, it’s coming along beautifully! I was writing a tough scene towards the end and decided to take a break and fill you guys in on my life right now.
I’d like to announce that in a month, we’ve almost sold out of paperback copies. Don’t worry. We’ve ordered another bunch! We won’t know eBook sales for a few more weeks but I have to say, I’m not so nervous. I know that even if sales are poor, I did what I wanted to. And I didn’t let a thing stop me.
I wrote the first book tentatively. With Mystic Waters I wasn’t confident. I don’t mind that. I love the innocence in my words. But I come to CTT with a sense of accomplishment. I know some people have loved MW. Some haven’t. Either way, I owe it to those people to sit at my desk and pour my heart out. I owe it to them to spend hours on end making my characters come alive. And if they can enjoy the world that came from my imagination, it would makes the hours of typing after coming home from work worth it.
So, you see? Writing, story telling…it’s my love affair. It’s my escape. It’s my sanity when the world thinks I’m insane. Because in my head, things make sense. 🙂

All my love,
(And maybe I’m back in Mystic…) 😉
