I've set it aside to complete the first draft of Blood Sacrifice.
My original outline for this book got thrown out the window after seeing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull back in 2008. If you really want to read about the whole fiasco, go to my writing blog. I still think Steven Spielberg owes me one. *grin*
So last summer, my friend, the lovely Jody Payne, helped me hammer out a new plot. Instead of Mexico, we went further south. Jody and her family spent a great deal of time in Peru, so she had some excellent ideas involving local concepts and Incan deities.
Unfortunately, I didn't get much new writing done last summer since I took on a project for hire. By the time that project finished, homeschooling and crazy Christmas retail season was upon me, both of which ate my brain.
But it's summer, I'm back in the writing saddle, and my Starbucks card is loaded and ready to roll!
Want some hints about the story?
Blood Sacrifice is Alex and Phillippa's book. It will fill in the blanks about what split them up and how they get back together. It won't be an easy path for Alex. Especially when Phil's dad takes a shine to Alex and "helps" him woo her. And nothing spells disaster like a war god trying to fix your love life! Add in a pissed off Incan god of death and an apocalyptic cult, and our poor Texas vampire has his hands full.
See y'all on the other side of July!
