Had to knock off early today to take the thunder kittens to the vet for their rabies vaccines. But 2040 before 3 p.m., which is good, and a shame that I have to stop, because I'd gotten into a pretty nice groove. The story is going to start hurtling forward from here very quickly, and I want to be sure I don't have to go back and change anything once it happens. 

Typical book process for me - slow, slow burn to start, then the word counts begin doubling, then tripling as I near the end. Fingers crossed the momentum holds through the holidays. Cause it gotta, or else I'll be in deep doo-doo.

Got my final cover for WHEN SHADOWS FALL - with the pretty NYT at the top and the gorgeous quote from Catherine on the bottom, and everything in between looks great. I love the surgical drape - and I can't wait to see what it looks like in person. Isn't it pretty?

I also updated the front page of the website - so take a look, and tell me if it works for you.

East Side Storytellin' tonight at Mad Donnas, too -- looks like Chrstimas gets put off yet another day... 

Sweet dreams!
