Hey all, I have good news and bad news this morning. First the good – I finished edits this weekend to A Tale of Two Demon Slayers. Yay! They’re going to my editor today after I look over a few last things (I have trouble letting go of projects because I know you really care what single word I used on page 211 and if I could have used a better word).
The bad news is that I actually sprained my pointer finger last night typing. Does this qualify as a work injury? I don’t know. I must have been having pretty much fun when I did it because I don’t remember it happening. But I sat down to answer a few emails this morning and – yow – I felt it. Worse yet, it’s not even a sexy injury so I can’t go walking around today getting sympathy for my pointer finger.
“I know you can’t see anything, but it really hurts!”
Not working – especially with any of my friends who, oh I don’t know, fight fires or teach thirteen-year-olds for eight hours a day.
Besides, I don’t regret it. I had a ball with this book. It answers a lot of questions about Dimitri, we learn more about what happened in the supernatural world before Lizzie gained her powers and Pirate even gets a pet of his own.
I’ll post the first chapter on the website as soon as I get permission from my publisher. Until then, thanks for reading!
