Monday's Muse~My Happy Place
I’m so excited about this book because it feels special. From the research and outlining stage it spoke to me in a different way than any of my other novels have. I felt a deep connection to this one and now that I'm editing it I'm noticing that came through in the writing in a good way.
I'm finishing up reading The Clearing by Anne Riley and am loving it. It started out with a bang then slowed down for a few chapters but after that it picked up and swept me away. I would definitely recommend this novel. Next up is The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder which I'm really looking forward to, and not just because she's my friend, but because it sounds awesome! Check back later this month for an author feature on that one!
My music tastes are very eclectic when I'm editing, which is the opposite of how focused they are when I'm writing. Right now the one CD I just can't get my MP3 player off of is Going Out In Style, the Dropkick Murphys. They are my favorite band, like ever, but they aren't for everyone. An Irish band out of Boston seems appropriate to listen to while I'm editing this book though! What inspired you last week? Have you ever written a novel that felt different from the others under your pen, special somehow?
