I’ve been pushing to finish Sinner’s Gin, mostly because I need to plot out the next Cole and Jae book (tentatively titled Dirty Laundry). There’s a point in writing where you honestly no longer see the book. It’s kind of like a marathon where you reach the last third and you’re more concentrating on putting one foot in front of another to push forward. You don’t see the scenery or the other people around you. It’s just one thing… the road underneath you.
When I write, I actually lay the days out and the events because at some point in my reading / writing slog, I came across a book where a lot of incredible things happened. All on the same day.
There is only so much disbelief a reader can summon up. It’s good to know what day things are happening.
There’s actually no point to this post other than an update of how things are going. I’m alive. I’ve got coffee and there’s about 20 lbs of rice in the house so I’m good for a while.
We go through a lot of calrose rice. Asian. Rice cooker. More important than a washing machine.
I’ve got to blurb out Sinner’s Gin… one of the most LOATHED things a writer has to do. Blurbs are like the bitter melon of writing. And bitter melon is the fruit which grows from the spent seed of the devil’s dick.
As you can tell, I hate bitter melon. With a passion borne of the heat of a thousand suns. And not our measly ass Sol. I’m talking like epic Betelgeuse sized suns.
Picture of the devi’s spawn ass monkey seed.
Okay, I’m back now. *takes deep breath*
I’ll see what I can share about Sinner’s Gin in a bit. I’m loathed to toss it up here without at least some kind of description as to the book and the series. *grins* But if you’re interested, I’ll put a sneak peek up.
Back to the slog. Pray for me. No flinging poo. Behave all.
