In other news, my husband and I are vacationing in Florida! We managed to escape two hours before Nemo hit the Northeast. JetBlue was incredibly accommodating in changing our Saturday flight to an early Friday one. I can’t deny feeling just a tiny bit smug as we sit on the porch of my parents’ house in 70-degree weather. And yes, for those of you who are wondering, I do have parents living in Florida, just like Mia does. My husband is fully human, however :).
Of course, I’m not really on vacation. I don’t think I’ve had a day off since July, when I started Close Liaisons. I’m writing (or editing, blogging, marketing, or doing something else book-related) every spare moment that I have. And I don’t have all that many, since I do have a full-time job and a 2.5-hour daily commute. Vacation is really my most productive time, a time when I’m able to write a solid 2000-3000 words/day. Big chunks of both Close Liaisons and Close Obsession were written in Florida and Costa Rica, respectively.
This time, I actually have three books in the works. One is a continuation of the Krinar Chronicles, and the other two are completely different. I decide which one I write depending on my mood on a particular day. Lately, I seem to be obsessed with one of the non-Krinar books. It’s much darker than anything I’ve written thus far. Maybe that’s why I’m so drawn to it?
