Holy moly, my dears, I have found treasure!
While “working” on the second book (and by working I mean messing about on the internet), I happened to google the title of my favorite book, The Spellkey Trilogy. Oh my darlings, what I found made my heart sing and my brain race. I found Ann Downer’s blog!
Her blog! Not just her blog, but her Twitter, um, thingy, too! I’m following both but it’s not stalking. Yet. If I went and opened a facebook account to “friend” and follow her there, then, well, maybe that would be a little stalkerish, but not this. I’ll stop here…
The copy of the book I have contains all three books of the trilogy, and while I love each one, the final story, The Books of the Keepers, is by far my favorite. My only sadness is the last page keeps trying to fall out and if I lost it, I would most certainly “lose it.” I’ve read it cover to cover more times than I can recall, and it stays just as fresh and wonderful as it was the first time I read it.
If I could write half as well as she does, I would consider myself successful.
Now to return to my previous activity of writing, which will involve a long conversation with my sweetie (probably about Ms. Downer), a cup of coffee, and perhaps a slow saunter around the block. Because some days, that’s about all the writing I can manage.
