Very briefly -- thank you all for the good wishes and advice on maintaining wrist health. It is much appreciated. I'm putting my time offline to mostly good use. I admit it's taken me a while to learn to work effectively in a shorter space. There seems to be a...Focus Factor.
A couple of you have commented on the new logo -- that was designed by the lovely and talented annecain
Also, Reviews by Jessewave has done a surprisingly comprehensive overview
of the Adrien English series -- offering dueling (well, not really) opinions from Anchorwoman Wave and Roving Reporter and Commentator Mary M.
I just want to say that I appreciate the obvious time and thought that went into this. It's sort of encouraging as I slowly work my way through book four -- there's always that stage of writing where you wonder where the hell you came up with the idea that you had anything to say that anyone would want to hear. For me that stage starts at about Chapter Three.
But we've heard me whine enough about rough drafts so I'll spare you -- and my wrists.
Also -- and thanks to lisabea for pointing this out because I'd totally missed it -- Thank You to Book Mom Utopia
for her recent review of I Spy Something Bloody
. I have to admit her response to Mark was similar to my editor's reaction to him (although happily not everyone feels this way). Anyway, I appreciate it.
You know, I'm basically off the web these days, so...if I fail to acknowledge email or comments it's all about the wrists and nothing personal.
And for those of you looking forward to Adrien's next adventure, here's a snippet from DEATH OF A PIRATE KING
