    7 Sisters – 4 Voices – Keeping it “I” and Flowing

    What’s great is meeting new sisters and detailing how different they are from each other.  I’m knee deep in book 5, and just like I planned and have announced, this story is BIGGER than the rest. It’s not because I’m letting the plot drip, drip, drag but because it’s all happening in this book. I won’t give away the story but we have four POV’s in this book, however Clarity is still the main POV. We’re learning about the connection the vampire bonds have with each other and the scope of Lario’s manipulation. Action-wise… so did Cort drink Ob’s blood? Or did he drink something else? And I cannot forget…

    New Town… New Writing Routine

    So finally, I’ve made it to Seattle and am settling in quite nicely. Dear God, I love this town… No, really… I do — LOVE this town. Although too much driving can end up killing me. Like on Monday, the day I arrived, a guy clipped my car and then tried to blame it on me. We both turned the corner at the same time. And he called me a stupid something, cunt or bitch and all kinds of things. But… Did I tell you that I’m California cool… Like, it takes WAY more than that to make me lose my head or get upset. Because really, I don’t know…

    Happy Feelings from Reviews!

    Okay… I worked at UCLA for a number of years, like, a long time… LOOOONG time. One of my MANY job duties was running the instructor evaluation process. I learned a lot from that part of my job. First, people who really liked the class and sometimes loved it are least apt to write actual words on the back of the evaluation form.  They’d just fill out the bubbles, rating the instructor high and leave it like that. Although, sometimes, an instructor that knows they nailed it would remind the student that the back of the form is for them to write something on. However, on the flip side, those…

    New Year’s Decisions…

    Well, for me, a lot has changed in the new year. I’ve garnered new perspective in every aspect of my life.  It’s freeing, you know??? I’ve also realized something else. Probably 90% of those who’ve read the first book of Misty Black are those who’ve read it because of Parched. I wanted to start the new year writing the second book. However, I’ve been outlining the story for a few weeks, basically during my holiday break and I’ve come to the conclusion that the story needs to be kicked up about ten notches.  I need to devote my entire mind to that series. This I cannot do if Parched is…

    What a Year!

    Right? I mean not only for myself but what a year we’ve had as a society. I noticed there are more Christmas lights on the neighbors’ lawns this year. Last year there were less lights and the year before there were hardly any. All of my friends are back to work. All the people that I love are healthy and at least convinced themselves that they’re happy (long stories) LOL! But I’ll be here for them when they can no longer delude themselves… Yes… I digressed… Sorry about that… LOL And it’s been a LONG time since we had a spectacular year in TV but this year I hope is…
