Well, technically tonight is the night of the ‘super blue blood moon’ (which took a long time to explain to my children this morning, who couldn’t quite understand why a blue moon would be red!), but the title of this post is actually the title of my new book!
So, as not to confuse you, coming mid-2018, look out on Amazon for Night of the Shadow Moon. Tonight, look out your window for the ‘super blue blood moon’!
I’m not a stay-up-late sort of person, but such an exciting night sky event hasn’t occurred for over 150 years, so I do feel a certain responsibility to pry my eyelids open long enough to witness it, perhaps with the help of a hot chocolate or two? With that sort of incentive, I may just manage it!
So, yes, book three is sitting on my computer, ready for stage two, which in our house is called, Goodbye Mum. That’s when I shut my office door and emerge three months later with more grey hair and wrinkles and a book that’s ready to publish! The editing process is long and not as much fun as the writing process, I admit, but they’re both just as important in producing something that’s enjoyable and exciting to read.
This is the third book in my Furyck Saga series, and as usual, I have written it by the seat of my pants. My husband/marketing guru guy tells me that it’s an official thing to be a ‘pantser’, which is someone, like me, who just goes for it, sans outline, with no idea how things will end up. And I confess that I literally had no idea where it would all go until the last few pages of the book, where it all came together (thank goodness!). It was a lot of fun, and I’m already thinking about what it means for book number four!
But first… all that editing and a moony inspired cover to design.
And happy moon watching tonight.
