I only hope...

...that someday a reader will be as anxious for the next installment of one of my books as I was for this.


I don't pre-order books very often...mostly because I don't have that much disposable cash lying around, but this one I did. I've been patiently waiting for it and it arrived on Thursday.

I ripped open the box like it was Christmas and I couldn't wait to get started. [The only reason I haven't finished yet is because I've had a lot of editing work to do, AND because I have a perverse desire to savor the book while devouring it at the same time.] I want to have my cake and eat it too. [Let's not talk about the outrageous amount of time I spend over at Cake Wrecks blog - that's a different post].

I won't go into any details about the book, no spoilers. I'll just say, while it's inherently cruel to make readers wait for months and months and months for the next installment of an ongoing story, I completely envy any author who can keep me on the hook this long.

What books/authors are you on the hook for?

OMG - I can't look away! The only problem is...now I want cake all the time.

I suffer from this too! It's so difficult finding a happy medium -- unless you count Patricia Arquette ((GROAN))

Oh, that's painful. LOL.

I know. Couldn't help myself -- sorry!
