Today, and it seems like a wholesale miracle, I will finish “The Bridegroom”. I’m of two minds about this, as I explained yesterday. Naturally, I get very deeply involved in my books, and my characters are Real People to me. So while I have a tremendous sense of accomplishment, I’m also a little blue.
I leave on my Rustler tour tomorrow, and that is REALLY going to be fun. I love meeting my readers, doing interviews, traveling from one city to another. (There’s a bit of the gypsy in me.) At least, I love it For A While–when it’s time to come home, I’m always more than ready. The dogs will throw a big party in my honor when I return–lots of barking, wiggling, cuddles and kisses. The cats will say, nonverbally of course, “Oh, you again.” And wait until it’s dark before they snuggle up against me, no longer able to hide the scandalous fact that they’re glad I’m home.
In the meantime, it’s back to Stone Creek.
If you love this book half as much as I do, we’re golden.
