Going on vacation in the middle of a book is kind of tough. I don't know about other authors, but for me, I get into a sort of "groove" with the story. It might be just one chapter that doesn't give me any issue, or it might be me sitting down in front of my computer and writing a half dozen chapters in one fell swoop. When I take a break in the middle of that, I have to come back, read what I've written, and get back into it all over again. That's what I had to do when we got back from Disney. Don't worry, it's happening! I wrote a chapter on Friday and a chapter on Saturday, which puts me at the halfway point. My goal is a chapter per day, minimum, and I've got another 8 to go (I think, it might be more). We're still looking at an end of March, beginning of April release, but I feel pretty confident about that, even with having to format, edit, and add pictures.
In the meantime, here's an excerpt! I hope you love it!
Jed is dying.
I knew it from the moment I looked at his face when I went in his room to wake him up this morning. I knew it even before my dad told me about the phone calls, before he told me about the promises he made all those years ago.
It doesn’t matter, though, because I didn’t know it in time.
If only I’d thought of it last night, maybe things would be different. Maybe our hands wouldn’t be tied. Maybe our decision would actually be a decision instead of a countdown to the moment when we have to what we’re going to have to do, no matter what.
I've never really thought about the saying “hindsight is 20/20”, but I'm definitely thinking about it now.
It doesn’t matter. It’s already too late.
