This awesome picture, by the way, is an actual Nyan cat mod for the new Sims 3 pet expansion.
Well played, friends. Well played.
(Yes, I have it. And it is awesome.)
In the meantime, nothing new today except for the fact that I mailed off the Galley edits for A Sliver of Shadow. It’s a bittersweet moment, because after this, there’s no changes I can make. For better or worse, it is what it is (assuming the changes I requested get made – sometimes they don’t…)
But overall it’s a bit of a relief. I’m done with this particular project and back into the new one. I’m continuing to plow through the 3rd book, but even though I’ve always said I intended this story arc would finish up in three books…well, I’m beginning to wonder if it shouldn’t be four after all. Tough call, really, since there’s no guarantee the publisher will want a fourth (although that’s were self publishing would possibly come into play – although some of that might depend on the demand.)
That and I’m debating throwing in a bit of a monkey wrench into the romantic situation that may not be a good thing in the long run. It could actually be quite devastating. Or it might work beautifully.
I guess I’m just not happy unless things are terribly messy…but I have to temper that a bit, because my preferences here may not actually be the best thing for the story and the last thing I want to do is alienate my readers.
And this just might.
I think I’ll run with it for the moment and see how it play out, but the nice thing about being a writer is I can always go back and change it.
At least for a while.
