Ah-ha! It is *still* Wednesday in my neck of the woods which means that for once, I am putting up the Wednesday excerpt post on time! What's been going on this week? Well, two of the four members of my house are down with a cold-bronchitis-plague crud, poor things. 🙁 Our house repairs continue, but the Do-It-Or-It-Will-Fall-Down list is much smaller now, so that's good. We've had more March weather (which I personally adore) including a morning of snow on the ground, bursts of hail, rain, and a day of pure blue sky and sunshine. Oh, and today, today I finished MAGIC FOR A PRICE and sent it in to my editor. The book will go through revision (at least one), then copy edits and proofs, so I'm not at all done messing with it, but still....I have officially finished a series. Wow. But we'll talk more about that later, now it's time to talk about MAGIC WITHOUT MERCY, which will be out in just under 4 weeks! The reviews for MAGIC WITHOUT MERCY are starting to trickle in (thank you, reviewers!) RT Book Reviews gave it 4.5 stars!! Here's part of what they had to say: "War is coming and Monk does an outstanding job ratcheting up the tension and danger, keeping both characters and readers on a knife's edge." How nice is that? Thank you, RT Book Review, and reviewer, Jill M Smith! Now let's look at another quick excerpt (with Shame, of course) and see what Allie and the gang are up to.
