Stuff and Nonsense

Emily Grace made her appearance today! 6 lb. 13 oz, and mother and daughter are doing fine. Congrats to parents Pam and Jaye!

I wrote the last sentence on the rewrite of HOTM. Well, okay, I have to layer the new last chapter so it's not actually the last sentence I'll write, but it's the final sentence in the book. Basically, I'm finished.

My book splurge from Harlequin came yesterday. I ordered Steph's books, intending to let them be my reward when I finished HOTM. I couldn't wait. I devoured both of them. Loved, loved, loved Coming Undone.

I also ended up ordering a handful of Harlequin Presents. I used to devour the things when I was a teenager (we had a neighbor who gave them to Daddy, who gave them to me, probably not even realizing what he was doing . . . someone I don't think it's what my strict dad wanted his sheltered teenage daughter to read . . . but, oh, I loved them!). So I get an urge to read them every once in a while. I bought Lucy Monroe's because Sharon is always raving about her.

And oh, my, Lucy Monroe is a writing goddess! I read the darn thing in a an hour then went back and read it again. Maybe I'll write a review . . . but the plotting was good, the emotions were great, the characters believable . . . and I'll definitely be buying more Lucy Monroe books!

What have you been up to while I was buried in rewrites?
