Reading Callie's Mountain

I know I've said this before, but I am so excited to be reading Callie's Mountain one more time. It's amazing what you forget when you have lost all your notes in moving.

My notes were priceless, but somehow they were packed in a box and misplaced. I have all the names of the characters in the book and descriptions and I've lost them. I have to read the book to make any corrections that I didn't see the first time around, so I will pick up the character info as I go. It is discouraging to have to concentrate on the names and what they look like.

I finished the corrections from Sandi yesterday. I am now ready to read through it, send to a friend to read and then send to another editor. Then the fun begins and I might add, the waiting. I do not wait well.

There are other things to do while I wait, so that will be okay. I need to update my website and do a little research on the next book. Then I am trying to write a quick rough draft of Susannah's Hope. Don't you love that name? Susannah is a character and a half. Very opinionated and a little snob to start with. I love writing about her.

Did I say I was excited about writing? Well, I am and I love to come to the computer each day. I get in my own world, about two hundred years ago and I have so much fun. When you think about how they did their housework then and compare it to now, you appreciate a range instead of a fireplace. We are so blessed and don't know it.

I have a lot to do today, so I must get busy. Have a blessed day.


  1. Kathy, I'm excited for you! This is a great time.

  2. Yes, it is Susan. I'm over half way through and I want to finish it today. Thanks for all your encouragement. It means a lot.
