I’ve been in Washington now for over a year and a half . . . in my new place for 9 months. I think it’s safe to say I’m settled in. I still haven’t seen Big Foot, but I love the rain and I know my way around enough to not get lost (usually, anyway). More importantly, I feel like my writing is finally back on track. I have some rough ideas and characters sketched out for book# 3 (working title: House of Tin). I’ve hit “the middle” of Tarnished Copper and really enjoying Kate’s journey. I also finally figured out what’s been bugging me about Fool’s Gold, so revisions are well underway. Life is good!
