Done

At long last the revised version of Highway from Hell is done.  All except for two small descriptive paragraphs I've decided to change tomorrow--er, later today.  I plan to let it sit while I finish a copyediting job to die for (another Kate Johnson!)   Two days of proofing, and it's off to the beta-readers with thee.  
I'm more relieved than happy.  This is the last book I'll ever work with [profile] qnotkuon.  I think that's one of the reasons it was so hard to finish.  Finishing it means letting her go--writing solo forever, when all I want to do is sit down and swap stories with a friend.  
But stories don't get told unless you tell them.  I hope the beta-readers will like our take on Orpheus and Eurydice.  Even more important, I hope they'll tell me when I've screwed up the pacing, the dialogue and the bits that hurt.  I'm still a newb when it comes to the craft of writing.
Or should that be the Craft?  Stories are magic  The word gives meaning to the event, as qnotku always said.  I can only hope a little of her magic rubbed off on me.
Be good--or be bad if it's more fun.  Just try not to exceed the bail fund.  And be sure to tell me all the juicy details.  ;-)

Happy 2007!

Wishing everyone, myself included, a much better year than 2006.  May you and your loved ones stay healthy, happy and read lots and lots of good books.
And blogs.  *g*  Don't forget to check out the Samhain blog, live every day except Sunday...and New Year's.  LOL  The schedule starts again on Tuesday.  And on Friday, Twelfth Night (trumpet fanfare, please), yours truly will try to come up with something amusing.  
While you're waiting, you can rev up with some of those good books I was talking about.  Kate Johnson's "The Twelve Lies of Christmas" is already available for download at My Bookstore and More.  On January 2, yaoi fans can revel in Soul of the Night by Ann Cain and Barbara Sheridan, and on January 16, Ann Vremont's luscious erotic historical novel Sacred Heart Diaries hits the electronic stands.  Enjoy!
