The curse has been lifted

Yes, I'm pretty sure that I've been cursed when it comes to writing my second book. I started back in July (I think) and until the other night had only written fourteen pages. Talk about frustrating! But finally - finally! - I finished the first chapter. You hear that? That was me sighing in relief. Now I feel like I can get somewhere with this book.

And I better get my butt in gear because I have six months to finish the manuscript in time for my deadline so Playing With Fire will have a September 2012 release date. Yes, September 2012. But, Jennifer, that's a year away. Surely you can finish a manuscript in time for that! One would think, wouldn't they? I'm s-l-o-w when it comes to writing. I'm fairly certain I drive everyone involved crazy with my snail speed.

Have you checked out the Teasers tab? You'll find a sneak peek to Last Call. You can also find it on Goodreads now. Wow. Seriously, I'm still in surreal mode here

And because I've been so busy with my kids and trying to write when inspiration actually raises her stubborn little head, I've had NO time to read. The last book I read was WATER FOR ELEPHANTS months and months ago. I have about 30 books on my TBR list and can't seem to knock any of them off *sigh* One day I'll get around to them I suppose.
