Monday's Muse~Spruce Knoll
There may be something exciting in the works with this novel but I can't say just what yet. This latest revisions fleshed out my characters and gave them wonderful depth. I'm really excited with the end result and will soon be sending it off to my Critique Sisters. After that, well you'll just have to wait and see!
I'm reading Popular by my friend Alissa Grosso and am loving it. This novel was well worth the wait. If you haven't checked it out yet definitely do, you won't be sorry. Up next is either Possession by Elana Johnson or Hourglass by Myra McEntire, whichever arrives first! I won Hourglass from Lydia over at The Word Is My Oyster (thank you so much Lydia! And if you aren't already following this great lady OMG why not?!) and I have pre-ordered Possession. Reading books written by my friends adds something special to it that I just can't explain but LOVE!
While revising Spruce Knoll I have reverted back to old Avril Lavigne CD's and Allison Iraheta. I'm so happy that circumstances drew me back to this novel because I had forgotten how much I loved it. Have you ever gone back to something you were almost ready to shelve and breathed new life into it? Have you ever shelved a novel you wish you hadn't?
