Yeah, this happened today:
And then this happened…
That’s right. FINALLY, The Visitor is off to my editor, off to production and I’m letting no grass grow under my butt before starting Book Five, which as you may recall is tentatively titled The Sinner.
I’m dead-dog tired. I stayed up all night finishing the manuscript and unfortunately, I don’t even have that punch-drunk high that usually sustains me until mid-afternoon. Today I’m just flat out pooped.
I’m really excited about the series direction and I hope you will be, too. There are a few things going on with Amelia, coupla changes that I might be a leetle worried about……..nope. Just excited.
Anyway, here is a little teaser from The Visitor:
My gaze went straight to the door and I paused there with hammering heart. Then tiptoeing across the room, I pressed my ear to the thick wood. All was silent in the cellar, but I could feel the seep of cold air through the keyhole. Not for anything would I put my eye to the aperture, but I had to wonder if something was on the other side peering in at me.
I knelt and shone the flashlight beam through the opening. A high-pitched squeal—or was it a whistle?—had me scrambling back to the middle of the kitchen floor. Drawing my knees up to my chest, I sat there quaking, my gaze glued to that keyhole.
And just a little hint from The Sinner:
