Water Lost! The cover!!!!

I'm going over the final edits for this fabulous book, at least I was but my laptop crashed two nights ago. My stuff is backed up, but now how am I supposed to write? No idea. Will have to use the desktop or something CRAZY like that. 

Excerpt time! The scent of Sean, seaweed and spice, filled my nostrils while the rest of the world hovered on the periphery of my sleep. That smell was enough, even in my subconscious, to keep me from screaming as I woke, taking deep, trembling breaths as I fought against the nightmare, the swirling water that pulled me down and down and down.

Yeah? The working title for this book was, 'The Scent of Sean'. The working title for Watergirl 2 was, 'Sean is so Hot', so I think I'm getting slightly more poetic. I've been editing this since the beginning of March, and it's looking kind of good. I've also been writing the next one in my head. I'll have to do an outline if I ever figure out this computer thing.

Weird. Half of my house's power crashed and then came back on. It's so nice when things like this blog post save. :) Have a great weekend!

Things in my house.

First off I feel like I should clarify my book, Darkly Sweet, (because my mother started to get worried when she heard about how scandalous this book is) which has no sex, maybe two mild swears, and is genuinely funny. There are characters in the book (not the main character) who are not lovely, charming, uplifting characters, and I write them like that. Some are downright horrible, and that comes out in what they say and how they act. There are frank discussions about sex as well as gossip about who is sleeping with who, and the magic stuff is kind of dark, violent, and scary. Which is why I'm thinking about not publishing it, but it's not erotica by any means. Since there's no sex. Whew. Now that I got that off my chest and probably no one cares besides my mother...

I got a new wheat grinder!!!! It's so pretty. Otherwise it's been pretty dull, writing and laundry and homeschool group and checking math and more laundry and dishes, and dinner. Time to shake it up!

Mmmm breakfast!

Happy Birthday!

Dishes can be so pretty.


Sunset. No, it's actually another sunrise.

It CAME!!!!!! And had sea green bubbles. Magical!

We're all very happy about it.

For my mother, because she wanted to see my happy birthday to me outfit, got the linen jacket done. Yay! Also the red riding hood felt doll ...
