Story Complete!

Wicked 2: Leather and Lace is done! Well, the first draft if finished. I exceeded my target word count by a few thousand, which is always good, but we’ll see how much of that remains once the edits are done. I was treated to a steak dinner last night in celebration of my accomplishment and you’ll never guess who we saw. Billy Ray Cyrus!!!! Okay, so it wasn’t really Billy Ray but dude looked JUST like him! 92′ version, that is. He even had the awesome-tastic mullet, with long hair. It was like a train wreck. I could not stop staring. LOL I have Wicked 3 open, Christians story, and I’m itching to start it. I promised myself a break this weekend and that’s what I intend to do. I have a handful of video rentals waiting so it’s just me, the DVD player, and a bunch of sappy movies. … Continue reading

Slow Going

Blah….I’m SO tired! My week-long vacation ended Sunday, and Monday, it was back to work, at 6am, no less! Talk about sucking out your will to live! I came home from work yesterday, fixed supper, watched a movie, and crashed. I didn’t write one single word on Wicked 2. I’m not doing much better today, unfortunately. I do have the story open but I’ve only fiddled with what I’ve already written. No ‘new’ words. *sigh* My last day of work before our Christmas break is December 12th (that is unless we get no more orders between now and then) then I’ll have 3 whole weeks off. I hope to get wicked2 finished (I’m at 70% complete now) and get started on Wicked 3, Christian’s story. I’m already half in love with Christian. His story is plotting out to be more on the ‘funny’ side. I’ll not spoil you and let … Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving!

I snuck away from the kitchen for a few minutes of down time. I’ve been cleaning and cooking since early this morning in preparations of my family coming today. We’ll have a house full this evening and I know I won’t get another chance to even see the computer today, let alone sit down in front of it. Although not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving, I want to offer a Thank You to all my readers. Your emails and comments mean a lot to me. Writing is a very solitary job. It’s just you, a computer keyboard, and the imaginary characters inside your head. Getting a chance to share their worlds with you and having you respond to them makes it all worth while. I appreciate everyone who has purchased a book, or read one of my free stories, and took the time to let me know you enjoyed it. Let your … Continue reading

My Yearly Reading List

I spent today clearing out my downstairs bookshelf. That thing was busting at the seams with books I’ve read this year. I found a few I want to read again and thought I’d list them here in case anyone is looking for something good to read. Now, it really doesn’t take much to entertain me, and while some of these books were only ‘okay’ some were fabulous and I’ll probably read them over and over again…Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series has already sucked me in twice this year. LOL I’ve placed a ( * ) beside the authors I thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely read again. The more stars, the more I enjoyed them. All of these books can be found on Amazon, my home away from home. *wink* Diana Gabaldon *****OutlanderDragonfly in AmberVoyagerDrums of AutumnThe Fiery CrossA Breath of Snow and Ashes C.L.Wilson ****Lord of the Fading LandsLady of Light … Continue reading

New Christmas Story

I need to get this cleaned up and sent to my editor ASAP so no more procrastinating! All material &copy2005-2012 to Lily Graison

New Story

Wow…3 months since I’ve updated the blog. I’m not surprised, really. I’ve been on a sabbatical of sorts. I’ve lazed my days away reading. 53 novels since May. I realized last week I couldn’t continue being a slug and came back to my computer. Apparently all the reading helped though. I wrote 77 total pages this week. O_O Yeah, I’m shocked too! I’m the slowest writer I know. Literally. But, I have a christmas story that’s half done. I managed 19 pages yesterday alone. I can’t recall ever writing that many on one day. Sad, I know, but tis my life. I’ll post excerpts for it when I get it cleaned up. I also worked a little bit on Wicked 2: Leather and Lace. That’s Luke and Roxy’s story. It’s been wicked fun to write, too. lol Luke is a bad, bad boy! I actually can’t wait to get back … Continue reading
