I'm Baaaaaaaaaaack!!!!

... but it seems Jude has gone offline - oooooh, hoping everything is going ok in baby-delivery-land. Can't wait for the news!
So, I've been busy, eating lots of chocolate, lots and lots of chocolate. Then some chips and then more chocolate. Tellya, revisions do nothing for my 'diet'. Still, they do make me feel better about my book - can only hope my Ed agrees. You know, I live in permament fear of my Ed going on holiday. I'm terror-struck every time I send her an email - I hit the old send/receive a few times for minutes after in case I get one pinging back saying she's away the day - or worse, even longer.
Editors aren't allowed to take holidays.
Anyway, let's forget about Zach again for a while and go back to Rhys. I'm desperate to get Rhys out of my head now because you know what? BROCK has landed. And Brock has landed with quite a lot of style. Yep, once Rhys is out there then Brock wants his woman - and I can tell you, what the man wants, the man gets. (He just doesn't realise that the one he wants is going to turn around and bite him on the butt - hard).
So exciting!
I love it when a character appears, boots and all, shouting around the town.
She's not going to make it easy for him though. Ah yes, she's going to make him suffer (rightly so I might add).
Trouble is, I have no idea what her name is. And I have no idea where in the world they are.
Plenty of time for that to come tho - because I have to get Rhys out of that cold store first...

Brock may have landed...but the baby hasn't.

Sigh. I just can't face posting any more.

Hoping it happens for you soon Jude.
Hey SG - maybe I can use Falcon or Crest as another name in the book - as a cute reference just for you? She could be XXX Falcon or XXX Crest. Or her namje could be Cresta!!! (I am kidding- kinda).That would be hilarious (btw, I am writing 'sleazy Dr Tim' as a secondary character this very night! - he wanted to be sleazy remember!).
Donna it IS fabulous when it happens isn't it? Does that happen that way for you?? Suddenly he's just there, talking at me. Its just bizarre. Right when I'm thinking I have no idea what the next book will be about up walks a hero and starts giving me stick!

i worked with a Brock once... in Germany. he wasn't quite the sex siren that your Brock is, but he was Canadian. might they be in Canada somewhere (it's a big place!) or does it have to be somewhere that you've visited/lived in, to feel like you can locate your characters accurately?
