I Finished My Urban Fantasy!

3.5 weeks...  95,000 words...  and multiple cans of Sprite later...

MY URBAN FANTASY IS DONE!

Ah!!!  I'm so excited!  I have finished my 4th manuscript and let me tell you I celebrated.  Something about eating like a bucket of ice cream and about half my body weight in pasta or something...  Haha!

It's been fun.  I stressed.  I laughed.  I cried.  But now it is done!  What's next for me you may ask?  Well, I plan on doing a read through for enjoyment and then tossing it to the side for about a week and editing another project.  This is usually a routine with me.  It's always good to put the work away for a while to recoup.  Then you can look at it fresh and edit the hell out of it later!

And now, my friends, I give you a little sample.  Now remember this is a first draft so it's pretty rough, but I just wanted to share.

I noticed that with my Lucky 7 entry and my original sample I shared with you a while back, I always seem to have my characters at each others throats.  So today, you get one of those warm tender moments from them.  They don't happen often so this is a rare treat for them, haha!

May 6, 2012-
Hey, all!  Took the sample down for polishing.  Thanks to all who read for their input!



Thanks for reading, my friends.  It's been a wild ride for my two characters!  Don't forget to check out the blog hop that myself and my critique partner are hosting featuring swoon worthy heros called the Oh! My Hero Blog Hop!  I will be interviewing the deliciously mysterious Luca from my first novel The Crimson Hunt!  Look out for it and enter the hop to show us your heros as well :D

Laterz!

Congrats on finishing! This is amazing! in 3.5 weeks??
I'm still doing my outline and progress have been real slow... *sigh*

Anyway, that excerpt looks great! And for someone who hates animals to be working in a pet shop, there's bound to be some interesting scenes for us!
