On Friday I got to meet Rachel Hawkins, author of Hex Hall and Demonglass!!
Yes, I know I'm pink. Since the sun's been out, I've been outside as much as possible. Plus it was hot in there. Plus, I was meeting Rachel Hawkins. I turn pink when someone just looks at me.
She read a chapter from her new book, told us a little about how she started writing full-time (she was a teacher, it was sucking her creative soul, her hubs was also a teacher with similar soul sucking going on, they both quit, he cashed in his retirement, gave it to her and said, WRITE!, he got another job, she wrote Hex Hall, got an agent after TWO WEEKS of querying, sold the book 6-ish months later, it was on the shelves a year and a half later), answered some questions (there WILL be a third Hex Hall, then a new series!), and signed our books!
As usual, the writing high is strong now, yet I've had zero time to work on anything but editing photos. Today I'm MAKING time!!
