Claire Reminds Us To Shower, or, How To Take A Break and Live To Tell About It

So I was on vacation. Three weeks, in which I logged on to the internet for maybe half an hour every three days, just to watch my lovely, pre-scheduled blog posts go up. Oh, how lazy I was.

The only bit of work I did was editing Out of the Water. And wow, did that thing need editing. It's the first time since I finished drafts 1 through 4 (or whatever number I might be at by now) that I'd read the whole thing straight through. Not that I'm done, by any means.

Working during a vacation - especially when there's sunshine and sand and sea involved - does not come easily.

Drinks by the water? I'm there!

I've got roughly 50 pages left to go, and then comes Part Two: Entering the Scribbles. A lot of it, thankfully, is pure deletion. Yay for a descending word count!

All that being said, please, everyone, while you're keeping your Butt in Chair, heed Claire LeGrand's advice: Remember to Shower.

Huge congratulations and confetti rains go to Kristen Callihan, who's gathering NYT bestselling author blurbs for her upcoming release, Firelight. Check it all out on agent Kristin's blog. I love her description of Firelight: "dark gothic Victorian historical romance with an unusual paranormal twist".

Those genre-defying books are always the best ones.

Oh, and these are for you, Joy; market that takes place every Tuesday near Kadınlar Denizi, Kuşadası, Turkey:
