Summer's End

Hard to believe it's almost September and my boys will be in school again next week. That's life, right? It flies past us at breakneck speed.

I received edits for Tactical Strike on Friday and they're not half as heavy as I feared they would be. I love it when that happens! My editor even liked and agreed we should keep a scene near the end where Ryan meets Candace's, uh...unconventional grandmother. It's actually a family anecdote about my grandmother, and ever word of it is true. When you'll read it you'll wonder if I'm lying, but I promise you I'm not. She was a character in life, and now I've made her one for real. I always promised to immortalize her.

My dad and stepmom are currently on a three month vacation to all the countries ending with "stan", including the "safe" parts of Afghanistan. Why would anyone want to do that, you ask? They're very adventurous. I'm not. I get my adventure by writing about what's going on in that corner of the world.


Hope my heroes don't think less of me for staying home. *g*

Tactical Strike is set to release sometime next March. I'll let you know when I receive the official release date. I'm about a third of the way through the draft of Jackson and Maya's story. It's pretty wrenching so far.

I hope you all had a fabulous summer. Any really great summer experiences you'd like to share with me?
