So, I’m working away on RAJMUND this weekend (Book 3), and obsessively checking Amazon for more reviews and my current sales ranking, which had a very nice bump after Harriet Klausner’s review. A very nice bump.

But back to writing. RAJMUND is finally going smoothly. I’ve settled into my characters. I know who these people are now; I know how they’ll react and what they think. It’s a very good feeling. I can sit down and write almost anything, and technically it will be fine. But the really good writing comes when I know and, more importantly, like (or dislike in some cases) the people I’m writing about. It’s a great feeling. Sometimes, when I’m in the middle of a book, and I’m doing something from Real Life that’s completely unrelated, I’ll find myself feeling anxious or unsettled. And I realize it’s because I want to know what happens next. And that’s when I know the story’s finally working.

And RAJMUND is definitely working. Which means my story is calling me back to MSWord. (Either that or Microsoft has finally perfected their evil mind-control.) LOL

Before I go, I want to thank from the bottom of my heart everyone who has taken the time to post here or to write me personally and let me know how much they loved RAPHAEL. This is my first book — this will never happen again, and I was sooooo nervous. You all have made this one of the best experiences of my life. So, thank you.


CREEPY FACT FOR TODAY: In a year you will have swallowed 14 insects – while you slept! (Okay, this is my personal nightmare. I may have to start taping my mouth shut or something. LOL)

    Another creepy fact, the average bar of chocolate has 8 insect legs in it. See I’m helping people who want to go on a diet. LOL

    Being Klausnerised may not have caused the bump. Maybe your awesomeness did…and/or my pimping paid off! šŸ˜‰

    I think it’s your awesomeness that bumped your sales. šŸ™‚

    I’m going to post a review today.

    I think it’s the story. But, we all look at reviews when buying books, don’t we? I do. I’ve got my copy of Raphael!

    Okay – about the insect thing. Eww. Double ewww. Especially if any of those insects are spiders.
