There is a whole lot of research going on at Maggie Mar International aka my brain. I think I know where and when my next book is set however I do not yet have a lock on my characters--which is a little different than the usual. Often I hear a voice that begins to tell me their story and then I get all the deets from the characters. Not ever quite that simple in the long haul but the first draft flows this way.

So far no voice.

Courting Trouble--Coming Soon

So this little gem is off to my editor.

Which means I am finished--for a while. I will of course have edits and revisions but a great deal of the work for Courting Trouble (Nov. 2012) is now complete.

With every book I write, when I turn it in, I expect that I should feel excited, elated, effervescent, but instead I get an untethered feeling.

Like this morning I am sitting around looking at all the things I could/should do and really not wanting to do any of them. I know that this lost feeling will subside. I know that this feeling is based in part in saying good-by to one project and not yet saying hello to another.

I also know this would be a very good time to clean my house.
(Ha! Like that's going to happen today.)

Instead, I am going to sit here and drink my coffee in my deadline-free world until whatever new characters I write about next pop into my head and begin to tell me their tale.
