I finished the book today. At a few minutes after 10 a.m. It was too dang early in the morning for champagne and only the dog and the cat were there to congratulate me, which they totally did not do.
Ninety-three thousand words were extracted from my head and heart and soul over the last four months for this novel and by-golly them words were snarky about it. This book, which is set partially here right in Sandy Eggo and partially in the magical city of Florence, Italy, is called The Girl in The Glass. There’s a cool historical thread in it involving the uber-audacious Medici family. They about wore me out. You will see it on bookstore shelves in 2012.
With The Girl in the Glass done I am no longer The Girl in the Dining Room Tapping Away at Her Laptop While the Rest of the House Sleeps. It’s good to be back. And because I am not so keen on writing today (you figger it out) I have here for your viewing pleasure a fun, fun video by author Maureen Johnson which aptly explains this thing I do in chair all day long. Enjoy. I might see you Monday. . .
