Yeah, Baby!

I finished the first draft of my killer urban fantasy, BLOOD RIGHTS, last night.

And while there is still a lot of work to be done on it (stuff to change, emotion to layer in, descriptions to fine tune, word choices to agonize over), I love revisions so I'm a happy camper. It's putting new words on the page that wears me out.

Which means I'm taking a small breather today, running some errands, etc. then I'm printing the manuscript out and sitting down with it and my trusty red pen.

I'm so psyched!! Finishing a book is one of the best feelings in the world. Seriously. You should try it.
