Teaser Tuesday

First, today is 1/11/11!!!! I think we need to make a wish! I know what mine is!

Onto the blog post…

I’ve finally been able to sit down and write! Yay! I started Soul Savers Book 3 (currently untitled) December 5, 2009. Until this weekend, the last time I’d worked on it was January 11, 2010. Yes, it’d been nearly a year. I could barely remember what I had written and was surprised when I opened the file that I had 45,000 words!

Unfortunately, some of those words will have to go because they don’t fit anymore. And what remain will likely be rewritten, revised, polished to a shine by the time I’m done. But at least I don’t have to start over, which I had seriously considered and even started doing Saturday. Does that mean Book 3 will be out sooner than a year from now? Meh. I doubt it. After all, I want it to be perfect for you, lovelies!

For Teaser Tuesday, though, here is the first line, as it currently exists: 

I stood in the sitting room of the ancient Amadis mansion, staring at the giant tapestry spanning the entire stone wall and wondering how I could change the future it told for my son.

It will probably change a hundred times between now and release day, but there you go. Does it pique your interest? Too wordy?

    No matter how long it takes it will be amazing. I’d love it to be out now but I’d wait till the end of time for this book. Your writing is incredible.

    Thank you, ladies! Glad you liked it and thanks for the encouragement! Can always use a bit of that. 🙂 (OK…more than a bit. lol)

    I love it, the last two books were about Alexis and Tristan mainly, but as a mother I felt like Dorian was being looked over as a part of this epic love story. I really hope this book includes the love of Tristan Alexis AND Dorian, and shows the lengths a mother will go to for her child as well as her true love! I love you as always, and CANNOT WAIT for book three:)
