Where am I?

What with Labor Day falling so early in the month and grandkids out of school for it and the next day, finding the few minutes to blog last week was impossible. This week hasn't been much better. Therefore, I am lost.

Should I add that I've been "polishing" the second of two books that I hope will be coming out next year? Taming Kate has been a joy to write, and the time is near to package it and send to my editor. But before that can be done, it must have a complete read-through. That means looking for any and all typos, wrong words used, and funky (it's the only correct word in this case) continuity. There have been plenty of each. It's amazing how much the mind can skip over mistakes, after being "inside" the story for months. It takes stepping back into the real world for a few weeks, so the story can be read with a fresher eye. Sometimes that fresher look can be eye-opening. In the end, it will be well worth the time spent, both for me and for the reader.

So excuse me for missing so many days. I plan to be back on schedule tomorrow and ready to share.
