Currently Working on: Holly’s Pledge, the third story in my Anh Leod series at Ellora’s Cave. First there was Claudia, then Cherokee, now Holly!
Mood: Frustrated and nervous about the lack of income entering my bank account. I hate this economy!
As we all know, I haven’t been writing much lately. In fact, as I dusted off my files for Holly’s Pledge this week, I discovered I hadn’t done any writing since January. Some editing, yes, but no writing. I’m not sure I’ve gone this long without writing since the mid 1990s!
The series I’m working on right now, like all of my Anh Leod titles, has some Greek mythology in it. One book I use for ideas is Classical Mythology by Stephen Harris and Gloria Platzner. I also use the internet a lot. The hero of my current book is the son of King Minos, who I was making up until I realized there was a developed mythology around Minos to the extent of naming all of his myth-y children, so I had to look up enough info to have a starting point.
I also read a lot of fashion magazines because this series is set in Los Angeles. Because I haven’t been there for a while, I look up real estate sites and other websites to get places and houses to use in the books.
That’s it for now. Baby Andy woke up from his five minute nap and is crying loudly!
