I HAVE to Get Some Sleep

Technically this is a Tuesday post. :) I'm both pumped and exhausted from an outstanding session of writing tonight. Too bad I didn't use this time to exercise, i.e. run, like I told myself I would. Instead, I typed until my fingers cramped. So my fingers are in shape while the rest of me laments my post-pregnancy droop. (Yes, I gave birth over a year and a half ago, but I'm going to milk the whole "I'm out of shape because I had babies" until I'm sixty.)

Reaper's Reward is starting to really take shape. I was concerned that I had too much sex in it, but it's evened out now. The killer has made his presence known, and the hero and heroine have had ample time in the sack to now focus on their real reasons for being in Satyr's Myst, otherwise known as "pleasure island." I confess, my favorite part of writing any sex scene is when the physical turns emotional, and the sex forces partners to realize there's so much more between them than their bodies. Sappy, but true. Ah, true love...

Oh my gosh, my eyes keep shutting. I used to be such a great night owl, but I peter out near one a.m. anymore. Such a wuss, I know. Well, I'll type more later.

Congrats to those who won the first books in the contest. And know it's not too late to enter. Six more books are waiting for some lucky winners! (Remember, if you've already entered once and haven't yet won, you're still eligible to win a prize through the end of March.)
Good night and happy reading.

Not sure if my email addy comes thru, so thought I should use this for the March Mania contest.

LOL! Marie,

I gave birth almost 5 months ago and now I also have that the rest post-pregnancy droop. I need sleep badly, too. The little one kept me awake till 4:00am yesterday.

I would love to enter the March Mania contest and if I win I'll get a book to read while nursing the little one into the dead of the night.
