3420 words between 7:30 AM and 9 AM. Got going and couldn’t stop.

Oh, man. I cannot believe what happened. I finally got to witness the betrayal of humankind first hand. I sort of knew what had happened. Sort of. I hadn’t even begun to imagine the details.

Great stuff Holly! So wonderful to see the ups and downs of the story and writing progress (mostly ‘ups’ which is wonderful) and to see the discoveries happening with an outline (I still struggle to not have the writing deflate somewhat with even the simplest/shortest notes eg. ‘Jane hides in tree – makes unusual discovery’ – but no notes tends to make middles very difficult..). Seeing your adventures on your WIP definitely helps me in mine! I hope you post like this when you’re revising too (please) 🙂

One question: what is the best way to support your novel release and increase demand for your books? Is it pre-ordering through Amazon or asking my local B&N to make sure they order it? I read your post/essay on writers vs the evils of the chain store ordering and want to do my bit to support good books and writers (ie. YOU and someday some of us).

I love the way this book is happening to you. I’m envious.

Oh, I know this is the second book. I’m just so impatient to start the first book I keep checking to see if it’ll get released earlier. LOL Sometimes Amazon does ship a bit before the actual release date but not this far ahead.

It amazes me how long it takes the book to get from your desk to my hands.

Awesome work you do Holly! Awesome!

Wait! Is this going in the book or is it all back story we won’t see much of? I keep looking at my Amazon pre-orders hoping the ship date for The Ruby Key changes. It’s not. *grump*
