I am already on chapter 7 of the sequel to "As I Close My Eyes." My publisher wants the next book out by this Christmas. I better work a bit faster :-)
I'm finding that I'm so much more critical of myself this time around. I've learned so much since writing my first novel that I'm going over and over every single word and sentence in this second one. I guess that's what we, as writers do. I don't think I'll ever think anything I do is absolutely perfect. I'll always find something to change and there comes a point when you just have to stop and move on.
So, I'm hard at work on the sequel and if you were shocked at the ending, know that there was a reason - there's a #2!!!!
