Morning update

August 25, 2009

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!

    Take care of your finger, glad it happened after you finished your edits and not before. I know it seems something small but it hurts I’m positive

    Ouch! I didn’t even know you could do that. How long does it take to heal?

    I’m almost finished with the second book now and wow, I’m loving it. I can’t wait to read the third. And Priate gets a pet…how cool is that.

    Hope you finger feels better soon and I don’t know, eat ice cream, chocolate, or drink wine. 🙂

  3. Yeow! I’m sorry about the injury, but delighted about the book! 🙂
