Internet Sabbatical

Just in case you've tried to reach me recently... I'm repeating what I've posted here and elsewhere online... I'm temporarily off the Internet. Completely by choice because I have so much going on and I need to avoid all those wonderful online temptations. This is probably the tightest deadline I've ever gotten myself into. My own doing, no question. I had a busy year, and although I carved out writing time when I could, it wasn't enough.

So... for the time being, I'm not answering emails, not checking here for comments, etc.

I hope you understand and come back to visit again once this site is up and rolling again!

Now, back to it!

Ollie, Ollie, Ollie...

Popping in temporarily to say that Ollie is giving me fits today. She and I are having a disagreement about how the next WHChef book should proceed. She'll win this argument, no doubt about it. She always does.

Of course, that's as it should be. Characters in novels know their strengths, their limitations, their hopes and dreams sometimes better than their author does.

So... right now I'm scratching my head as I work on WHChef #5. As you know, #4, Buffalo West Wing is finished and in process. That one comes out in January. I'll post the cover here soon. But for now, I'm waiting for Ollie to tell me why she won't do something I want her to do. Once she explains herself, I'll have a much better idea of where this story should go.

Wish me luck!
