Back to Work

It was fun while it lasted, this book tour thing, but mostly it’s over. Oh sure, I still have a few more scattered book signings for DEEP DISH–including one this Saturday at Dog-Ear Books in Madison, GA., but as far as my editor is concerned, there are no more EXCUSED ABSENCES. She wants pages, and she wants ’em now. So yesterday, I whined and procrastinated. I looked up the last chapter I’d written of THE FIXER-UPPER, which is my book-in-progress. I was horrified to learn that the last time I’d tinkered with it was waaay back in February. Now I’ve got to get re-acquainted with Dempsey Killebrew, the protagonist of TFU. It’s hard, picking up your knitting after having dropped it for six weeks. Last night, it seemed absolutely crucial to world peace that I watch both American Idol and Dancing with the Stars. Finally, right at bed-time, while I was watching LAW AND ORDER, an errant plot-related thought crossed my mind. I ran for a pen and yellow legal pad. Therefore, my written output for yesterday–in fact, for yesterday and all of March was… lousy paragraph. So. Here’s my pledge. I will meet you back here tomorrow, by say, noon, and I will be able to report that I’ve written at least ten pages. Stay tuned.

  1. Hi,
    I bought my DEEP DISH as soon as it hit the stands but haven’t even opened it yet. I hid it on the bottom of the ‘to be read’ stack. I’m saving it for as long as I can. I figure if I can go for two or three months you’ll be that much closer to realeasing the new book!

    Visited the Sister’s on Tybee yesterday and bought one of your out of print books, and the cute trash can! Wanted both the trellis’ but decided I couldn’t resell them at your price. Cute booth!
    Write fast on the new book!

  2. Uh-oh. The Fixer-Upper won’t be ready by November, will it? Because that’s when my Fatal Fixer-Upper is coming out, and I’d really rather not have the competiton, if you know what I mean. (As if. Hah. But a girl can dream, right?)

    I enjoyed Deep Dish, BTW. My favorite is still Savannah Blues though, I think.

  3. I started reading DEEP DISH Saturday and even though I’m only a third of the way thru, I can tell you I just love it! I immediatly liked the characters and I’m laughing out loud frequently. Thanks fot the great book, MK. Good Luck with TFU. It’ll be great too, I’m sure! Hopefully I’ll make it to one of your book signings one day!
