A Big Day for Deidre
So, it's a big day for me (hence the happy pic)! An exciting day, one that I've been anticipating for a longtime--and no, it's not just that I'm heading to KFC for a chicken liver snack (Southern, anyone??) The fried snack is a reward because I'm in the midst of a mega writing weekend. Jud's away and the girls are at their grandparents' house, so I've been hammering on completion of PARALLEL HEAT, due in ten days. Yikes! End of book fear!
So, it's actually not any of that stuff. Not the Olympics, not the return of dreary weather (not that it would excite anyone after 70 degrees and football playing in the yard on Thursday evening!)
I'm beside myself because finally I'm able to unveil a small portion of my first novel for all of you! At last, the first excerpt has gone live and you can read the opening pages of PARALLEL ATTRACTION. Big day for me. Huge. Feels like a tiny promise of what the book's publication will be!
So I hope you'll go check out the excerpt, which is the first section of the prologue, and then post your reaction on my message board. I'm dying to know what readers think!
Now, I'm off to KFC and then back to the keyboard (of course, I'm ON the keyboard now, but you know what I mean...) Also, there is GREAT CONTEST STUFF on the website now. We're doing a fabulous Alien perfume giveaway, plus there's a pic of the ultra cool black iPod nano.
