Brooke Taylor Puts Me to Shame

But first, this news flash: I finished my Filioli revision! This should not be misinterpreted to mean that the book is "finished." Ace editor Kathy Dawson has it now, and once again will delve deep into my psyche and identify all the places where I ignored The Little Voice and subconsciously told myself "This'll be fine, fine. Just leave it."

The Little Voice now has a megaphone, so I'm just hoping there are fewer of those places than last time. Still...*sigh.*

On to the topic of Brooke Taylor (2k8er and author of Undone) who has the contest of the gods going on at her blog all this month. In deference to the season, it has to do with vampires and ghosts and such. Check here for details.

As a reward for finishing my revision, I'm going to print out bookmarks for next week's events and listen to another chapter of The Graveyard Book. It's a face-paced life, up here in the woods.

Did you know I met Brooke for dinner when I was in Oklahoma? Very fun. Congrats on getting through your revisions!
And...I'm gathering links for Wednesday's October Ovation blog round-up. And now I've got yours. :) Once you get your post up, if you could pretty please link back to me ( and Larramie at Seize A Daisy (, everyone will be able to find each other's links. Thanks. :) Should be a blast! Thanks for joining in!

Ellen, sounds like the fast paced life out in the woods is just right for your 'voices'!
