Yes, another blogger! So what is my goal here? Do I want to amaze you with my cookie baking skill, my prime parenting, or dog walking abilities? Maybe if I had those skills yes, but I don't. What I do have is a love of books.
Back in 2009, I read 219 books. I read all of Charlaine Harris, Laurell K Hamilton, Christine Feehan, and I can keep this list going forever. Taking 4-6 books at a time from the library each week confirms that I can I read fast, yes, do I retain every bit of information? Not exactly, but I enjoy reading and getting involved in the stories. Then it hit me in January 2010 - my little notebook of authors I had finished each of the series I was into and now was waiting for the new books to be released. Talking to my BFF Jynnipher (love her - decades of friendship here and she's a must follow http://jynnipher.com/ ), I admitted that I had a story idea that was running in my head for the past few years. I like vampires but not happy how everyone portrays them. Honestly, do they all have secret lairs and fight the bad vampires? So I started my first book, then I was almost completed at 70k+ words later and as I thought about the next book in the series, I decided to rewrite book one. So I did, I rewrote book one and hauled arse to get it complete before the 2010 National Novel Writing Month http://www.nanowrimo.org/ challenge. November 2nd I finished the reworked first book and Nov 3rd I began the second book.
