When Erica asks if it’s been a year at the top of the program I kept thinking it hadn’t been that long, but it’s because we did a Christmas Special last year – which you should totally check out. It’s family friendly and done in the style of an old gumshoe radio drama.The Hound and the Hedgehog Part 1 & Part 2. I adapted a script from a short story William Hardy wrote for me as a present several holidays back. It really had been about a year since we talked Red August, though. I really need to get out to RHR more often!
In this most recent episode Erica asks me some interesting questions and I go on a bit a couple of times trying to find my footing about what I want to say. After the recording I thought, “Damn, I rambled too much.” But after listening to the episode, I felt a lot better because what ends up happening is you can hear that I’m working it out.
The topics range from how I do my Scottish related research, to what I think of Trigger Warnings, and where I get the material for my sexy scenes. Will talks about the editing process and has some other insights as well regarding love going from overwhelmingly passionate to more comfortable.
I’ve not kept up with Wonderful Word Wednesday. I’ve not kept up with Sensual Sunday, either. That’s because we’re in the publishing homestretch! The projected release date for Red August is August 19th and that means right now the manuscript is being read and re-read and re-re-read by a few different pairs of eyes. Then of course, the uploads have to happen. With the release date just a few weeks away, it’s kind of the most stressful, but satisfying, part of the journey.
I’m thrilled to be so close to done. I started this project some time in late 2013, so to be this close to finished is gives me a great sense of accomplishment.
Now that I’m so deeply into the world of August and Faolan, I’m very excited about delving into what happens to them in book two, Red Archer.
