I did it. I started a new … what? Let’s call it a book. I picked a title out of the box. It was Asphalt Jungle. That is chapter one. I wrote four pages. I have no idea what this is about. I’ll continue this chapter tomorrow. I know the name of at least one of the characters (this novel may have multiple points of view) and will go on with him for now.
The galleys for TOO DARN HOT arrived today. They aren’t like the galleys for THIS DAME FOR HIRE. That one looked like the eventual book. This is the usual galley which signifies nothing to booksellers except that this is another mystery by Scoppettone. I can’t say that I’m surprised by this, although it would’ve been nice to have a galley that was the same type as the first book.
