I See the Finish Line

When I’m almost finished with the first draft of a book, I start to get giddy.  Especially when I think to myself — this is a good story.  Even if some readers do not enjoy it, I’ve learned that if I enjoy it, it usually comes out okay.

Ladies of Disgrace – New Book Blog

As some of you may know from my past endeavors, I like to do book blogs as I write.  They are informative tidbits of information regarding my research behind the book and also a therapeutic respite for me while writing.
