I'm trying to get through the week with a tension headache. I never used to have them until my dentist suggested I grind my teeth (which I adamantly objected to). I think she planted the seed in my head, and now my subconscious mind is actually wanting to do it. Either that, or I need to buy a new pillow.
Well, first let me say that I'm blown away by the response to "Twist". The reviews I've seen popping up have been exciting to read. Can't lie; I think all writers chew their nails a little on the release. I get asked it a lot so it bears repeating: I have four books written in this series. It's a matter of drafting them (which sometimes takes numerous drafts) and then editing to get them ready for publication. I can't wait, either. Lots in store.
Here's a little Ah-Ha. I always loved the concept of this video for its time, because back in those days videos had little substance. They were cliche, and usually consisted of doves being released, glass shattering, a random woman in a white gown running, and the band singing in an abandoned warehouse. I have a wide range in music taste, and my current faves are Muse and Florence and the Machine (among many individual songs by artists). But I love stuff from all decades, and I am in an 80's mood this morning for some reason; was even listening to a little Prince and Howard Jones. Don't even get me started on my love for some Jones.
Here's a little fact for the day, as I've been going through some of my images and cleaning them out. I created a number of mock-ups for the cover, and usually I tested out different titles. Twist was almost "Enthrall". The title didn't settle with me, however. No more than "Lightwalker" did for "Sterling". Some things are meant to be, and others are not.
