Feelings About My (Your) Books

I don't reread my own books often. I usually work so hard on them that I rarely want to see them again. I don't think I've entirely re-read any one of my works. Last night I got a hankering to look at Echoes In the Dark and the scene where Raine is looking through the mirrors into her father's home on Earth (and I wanted to see how it looked on itouch Kindle -- haven't found the search function for that yet, if there is one). I skipped around the story and FELT it's better than I recall -- especially for being written so fast.

I haven't been entering Echoes In The Dark in any contests. I still don't think I will, because it is the last book in the series and there are so many characters...but I FEEL better about the quality of it than I had. I know I did the best job with it that I could with the time I had, but I yearned to make it better...

In any event, I liked the story, which is important. If you don't like your own stories, then why are you writing?

So thank you to my readers who also liked it.

Thanks, I've gotten the doldrums and had a couple of shocks this week that I've been avoiding-- back cover copy for Enchanted No More and revision letter for Heart Journey. I'm back now. Thanks again for your concern. As a single person living alone, I appreciate it -- though I do pretty much keep in touch with family/friends on a daily basis.
