New look, new feel
Not sure if I've shared on here, so I'm sorry if I'm repeating myself. I have been in contact with my local library. They have already said they will carry my book, which is exciting on it's own. On top of that, they told me they are starting a once a month "author's day" and are adding me to the list of people who will be featured! This is wonderful news to me. Once the date is closer, I"m going to go to all the book stores in town and introduce myself to the owners and see about setting up a signing. I may even drive to some of the other bigger towns around me to do it as well. My greatest fear is that I put this out there and people don't respond to my work. Love it or hate, I want to evoke a response. Now if it can be the kind of book that you get sad because you're nearing the end, that would be great. Not that I made you sad, but that I gripped you so thoroughly!
I am still trucking along with Second Nature, though it kind of stalled out for a bit. I felt the story was shallow, so I went back and tore the last chapters into pieces, inserting other things to fill it out and give it a more 3D feel. I'm really loving some of my new characters I've introduced, and the story itself is developing well. Now I just need like five more hours in the day to actually spend writing and it'll be perfect!
