Bookin' It

So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

And It’s A Wrap!


It’s official! I have finished my second novel. The last chapter of Swamp Ghosts is edited and done, and next week, I’ll be formatting the book for Kindle. And if all goes well, the print version will follow just a few weeks after that. I’m so excited, I can hardly stand it!

Now that I’ve gotten this done, I’m planning to spend some time catching up on my blogs, and a few other things. Coming soon, a couple of author interviews with writers I’ve met over the months, and of course, more book reviews. I’ll also be keeping you guys updated on what’s going on with my books, as well. Of course. πŸ™‚

But for right now, I think I’m just going to relax for the WHOLE WEEKEND. I can’t remember when I did that last! I think I still remember how. Maybe. πŸ˜€

You guys have a wonderful weekend, too. And stay tuned for more news, reviews, and interviews. (Is that poetry?) πŸ˜‰

  2. Congratulations! Finishing the editing always feels so wonderful — now you’re really there!


    • Thanks, Anna! And it does feel wonderful. A huge weight off my shoulders to have wrapped up all the edits. Though I have to confess, I really enjoy editing. It’s the icing on the cake for me, all the polishing, and considering alternate adjectives, and rearranging sentences. Caitlin is very good at advising me on what I should cut, too. I tend to get repetitive, and she can always spot the stronger lines that should be left, and the weaker ones that detract from, rather than add to, to the point being made. She makes me a better writer with every chapter we work on.

      I can’t wait to get this one formatted and out there! πŸ™‚


  3. A HUGE congrats, Marcia! I know this has been a labor of love and it’s great to see it moving on to the next stage. The photo creeps me out, though. If I ever do visit you in Florida, don’t me to go swimming anywhere. πŸ˜‰


    • Okay, first things first. WHEN you come to Florida to visit me, you don’t have to worry about where we go swimming. My rule of thumb is, I don’t swim in any body of water that isn’t enclosed in turquoise concrete! I love being ON the water. IN it…not so much. 😯

      Secondly, that is my favorite alligator picture of all time. I think he looks like he belongs in a macabre version of Disney’s Fantasia, dancing along behind the hippo’s in pink tutus. He’s magical! And, just so you know, albino and white (leucistic) alligators do not survive in the wild. This one is in captivity, so you are doubly safe from him.

      And finally, thank you so much for the congratulations. I’m really happy about this one, and I hope romantic suspense readers are going to enjoy it. Snakes, and alligators, and psychopaths, oh MY! πŸ˜€ It feels great to have it finished, and as soon as I get it formatted and launched, I’ll be starting the sequel to Wake-Robin Ridge. But I’ve also outlined a sequel for Swamp Ghosts, too. (Somebody needs to stop me. I’m out of control!)

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to congratulate me. SO nice of you, young Nedster, Jurnalist. πŸ˜‰ I’m looking forward to doing a bit more blog reading than I’ve been able to lately, and yours is the first one I’m catching up with. Have a great Easter.
