Last night, I sent out an email to the people on my newsletter list. I finished Storm Surge and it felt finished. This is my third novel, so it isn't like I've not done this before. But I have to say, this felt amazingly [and emotionally] different. Not only have I finished book #3, I have finished the trilogy, and I am very happy with the way it ended. What an amazing journey this has been for this short story writer.
I want to share the email with you:
Storm Surge is done...288 pages. Few edits yet to come in, but the book will meet deadline and be out in May. Pre-ordering is now available on my website.
I've tweaked the ending three or four times in the last few days. [Then wrote an entirely different one.] I just finished the last words minutes ago. I am VERY VERY happy with how it turned out. OMGosh! OMG! I can't believe it is finished.
Thank you, everyone, for your help all of these years. I couldn't have done this without you.
I need help with one more thing. I'm on my own now. It is all up to me. If you like my books, please tell your friends and tell them they can get the books at my website. Please 'buzz' (or tweet) my books.
I'm going to hold off reviews for a while, because some of them give too much info and I'm not on amazon anyway. And, I ask you not to tell anyone the ending. OMG! I can't believe it.
As I've said several times, the end of the trilogy is in the first chapter of KB and HT. And, I've given clues in the newsletter over the past three years. It is so amazing this all came together in the way I wanted, and better than I'd hoped. I love to read when the book leaves me feeling like I do right now. OMG!
I want to look up the YouTube songs [and post the links for you]: Stand By Me; Bridge Over Troubled Waters; That's What Friends Are For; Celebrate: Dancing On the Ceiling...but,
Gotta go now because I think I'm going to cry. I love you guys. I love you lots.
