Good Morning Everyone, or maybe by time you stop by it's afternoon, or evening. Just wanted to stop in and tell you all that I'm reading your comments and they are giving me the biggest smile....thank you.
Today, I put my mind in the frame of "Get. Your. Arse. To. Work. Right. Now." -- the first signing is done. My YIPPEEE BOING BOING is over. Time to put my feet back on the ground and get busy.
Virginia Kate waits. She still has her story to tell. Last night I thought of a new opening scene. I'll file that away for now. I'll get through the entire first draft and make any changes (oh, the first draft I have was written before I made many changes to Tender Graces - so it's a mess!), and once I get through the entire thing, I'll know if that opening scene still works.
I have received emails from you who are reading VK (or comments!) and enjoying her - thank you. My friend Mike wrote and told me how his wife Tanya didn't want to put down the book and read it late into the night - and that she laughed and cried. I replied how I loved it that she laughed, and was it so wrong that I loved it that she cried? *grin* - but, what a compliment! All of you comments and emails are major huge wonderful glorious compliments to me, and to the words, the language, to Virginia Kate. I can't thank you enough.
I even stopped my running to Amazon to see if there were any new reviews *laughing* - I figure that things will work out as they will. I also think in this way: I have already achieved the goal I had dreamed about: Getting my words in my hands; getting my words in your hands; having a signing in my little mountain town; giving VK a voice that others besides me and a few readers can hear. So, everything else is langniappe....oh, Angie, I've been away from South Louisiana too long - is that how you spell Langniappe....?
Thank you all -- if you look at those photos below, you can see the joy - that's how you can picture my face when I read your words about my words....*MUWAH*
