I've just finished reading Invisible Boy by Cornelia Read. It was witty, passionate, gripping, taut, and sad all at the same time.
I generally don't read murder mysteries although I do enjoy them. This one came to me through a contest held by the gracious and talented Women of Mystery. I am so tickled my name was drawn.
I'd been looking forward to it since I won several months ago, but there were books ahead of it so it waited patiently on the TBR pile.
I am so glad it's number came up.
"I finally slept okay, considering.
Dean woke up at dawn, his circadian rhythm still governed by some lingering neurochemical trace of childhood heifers and cornfields."
-Invisible Boy, Cornelia Read (Grand Central Publishing 2010)#
As for me, well, yes I've been writing. I changed my approach on Dead Broke after realizing I needed another major character and that it required, at least for now, a prologue.
The problem is my new character doesn't want to do anything. She didn't do much alive and she is reluctant to change now that she's dead.
I am trying to forge ahead in hopes that she will blossom. I am sure she wants to.
Here are two from the prologue:
"The Guild Mother crossed the name off her list.
"We did as we could. Miracles are up to someone else."
Thanks for being here. For more or to get in on the fun please see the Women of Mystery.
