I also had a much more entertaining distraction in that I have officially signed a contract with Mr. Sam Hain for my last year's NaNo, Bewitched, Blooded and Bewildered. It will be out in spring. :) Soon I will have edits, and I'm very excited.
But for now, I bring you my favorite Emily Quote of the Day:
“Where did you hear of this?” Simon asked.
For a moment I considered lying, or at least misleading, but then I decided the truth would be worth watching his reaction to it. “I spoke with Lady Brigid, of the necromancer council.”
Priceless. I’d never seen Simon so instantly animated.
