I'm working on 2 books at once. It's going well but I need to finish them both by October 1 so I can move on to another project. So I am seriously under the gun (ha! a pun on a crime site!) to write, write, write. Of course, I also have to attend myriad family functions -- this is the year people are getting married, having babies, getting married, graduating, getting married -- busy!
So I'll be back in the fall with my usual verbosity. Until then that noise you hear is me, with my nose to the grindstone.
