There’s not much new to report. One beta reader is finished (and she loves my story!), and one is halfway finished. I haven’t worked on getting Vampires’ Curse ready for print since I was at the cabin. The frustration of the page numbers just overwhelmed me, so I’m still trying to decide whether or not to add the extra pages to make the chapters all start on the right side. Most people who commented on my blog post said they didn’t care where a chapter started.

All in all, I’m happy with where I am with my goals for this round. Except for exercise goals. Those are the ones that always suffer.

On an unrelated note, my cats are fine after their surgeries, just lying around a little more. Oz had this huge hernia removed, so he was a little worse than if he had just had the neutering. They both slept with me last night. πŸ˜‰

I’ve seen this floating around, but I finally got tagged. πŸ™‚ I have Jeff Clough to thank for it. No, really, I like to do these. LOL Anyway, here are the rules:

1. Grab your current work in progress.
2. Find the first occurrence of the word β€œlook.”
3. Copy that paragraph and a few surrounding paragraphs.
4. Post them to your blog.
5. Tag five other people.

Ok, I’m going to break the last rule. Although I LOVE to be tagged for stuff like this, I know others don’t necessarily want to take the time, so I’m not putting anyone on the spot. But here is the except from my book containing the first instance of the word “look”:

β€œMy Nikolas, I have a gift for you,” she murmured as she kissed him. He was lost. He wrapped his arms around her and wanted only to stay here with her for eternity.
He kissed her deeply and urgently, but soon she pulled back and looked at him. Smiling, she said, β€œAnd now for my gift.”

I know that’s short,but the surrounding paragraphs would give part of the story away, which I don’t want to do in case someone reading this decides to read the book. πŸ™‚
