Good morning! Welcome to this writer’s workspace. Here’s what’s happening liiiiiiiiiiiiiive at Miranda’s desk:
What I’m working on: Revisions to ABSENT, my archaeological time travel novel, are roaring ahead, plus I’ve started drafting a new, very exciting project (top secret, of course). Here’s a little excerpt:
Snippet from the screen: “Daniel laced his fingers through mine. His palms were callused and his dark skin was warm.
I sighed. “I don’t deserve you, you know.”
“Sure you do.”
Huh. Like I’d ever believe that.
We sat in silence, holding hands. Outside, the rain began to fall. A gull shrieked as it sought shelter in the broken-down third floor turret and raindrops pelted the window, tappity-tap, tappity-tap. They sounded like a fairy’s tiny fists knocking against the glass.
If only. If only magic was fairies and rainbows and wishes.”
In my mug: Mighty Leaf Tropical Green Tea, with a little honey.
On the iTunes: Keep on Tryin’ by Poco.
Keeping me company: No pictures of Mr. Ramses today. He’s found some dark corner to hide in; probably where he’s working on his manifesto for a world free of human overseers. Maybe I’d better go check on him…
Out the window: global warming continues to offer Brooklyn a deceptively mild winter. Sun. 52 today.
A little procrastination never hurt anyone: a few links to share. First up, if you haven’t been over to Adventures in SciFi Publishing recently, you should check it out. There’s all sorts of yummy book reviews, podcasts, and interviews with awesome authors. And, speaking of book reviews, some fellow VP alums have started a new blog for that very purpose, Spec Fic Chicks. They have in-depth, thoughtful reviews of books featuring strong female characters or written by women authors.
Okay, that’s all from me today, folks.
Over and out!
