I'm reading Devil's Bride by Stephanie Laurens at the moment. Enjoying it, aside from a few minor points of irritation - locations. I'm from the UK, when a character turns up with the title Duke of St Ives, I imagine this relates to the St Ives most people think of when you say St Ives, ie the place in Cornwall, not some piddling little village down the road from Huntingdon. Sorry, but this particular point completely pulled me out of the book as I tried to ascertain why on earth anyone would travel to Cambridgeshire via St Ives! Grrr. Also hoping that the plot is going to be thicker than it so far appears. I like to be kept guessing... just a little bit... please. But as I said, I am enjoying the read.
Meanwhile, the word count for Phantasmagoria is slowly creeping upwards. I've reached the three quarters mark today - hurray! Still, there's loads to do before then end, and then I can start on the fun bit - polishing. I know some writers love the thrill and the intensity of the first draft, but what I enjoy is making the raw text sparkle. Second and subsequent drafts are where the locations and the characters really come to life. I'm looking forward to that tweaking and not being horribly concerned about getting at least 1K on paper per day.
