My hubby finished reading the first proof copy of GIRL OF MINE.
He had some excellent suggestions for improving the book. Over the next week I plan to implement all of the changes. Most importantly, however, he loved it and felt it was a fast paced and interesting read. Even though he does NOT normally read romance novels, he found the book unputdownable!
Yay! Just what I wanted to hear!
But, I do have my work cut out for me as I polish the manuscript.
I was a little sidetracked this last weekend because I had my grandson visiting while his parents went on a little vaycay!
I love this little guy! It was a nice break for me. I was able to forget everything and just relax and play with my grandson.
When I was a mom of four young children, getting away and going on a date with my hubby was considered a break.
Now that I'm a grandma, taking care of my grandbabies while their parents go on a date is a break and something my hubby and I consider a vacation.
This last week also brought A LOT of snow!
Yikes! I grew up in San Jose, California where the weather was NEVER an issue. We NEVER worried about road conditions.
Dealing with driving in snow has been an ordeal for me. But all of my children have left the nest and I no longer have to drive them to school every morning.
But when my hubby retires . . . well, let's just say sunnier skies are in the forecast!
I recently stumbled upon a song that really hit home. I downloaded it and have listened to it over and over as I write the finishing touches of GIRL OF MINE. GIRL OF MINE deals with a soldier leaving and coming home from war, something I experienced with my own hubby. This song really captures some of the intense emotions that accompany such an experience.
Watch the video until the end. There's a surprise ending . . .
Have a great week!
