…the heroine of 72 Hours:
Grace: Hey, how come I’m the computer expert, but you’ve got Gallagher running the computers?
Shan: Because I need you to be in the other room, having an emotional blow-out with Alex.
Grace: So is this official “check logic at the door” day?
Shan: Look, Gracie—
*Grace kicks Shan in kneecap*
Grace: It’s Grace. Not Gracie. What am I? 12? And your editor’s going to bust you on that lack of logic.
Shan: She’s going to be so frustrated trying to follow the whacked timeline she won’t even notice.
Grace: That’s what you think. Gena said if our editor hadn’t whipped Travis into shape, Forever Again wouldn’t have ended happily ever after.
Shan: Hey. You guys aren’t supposed to talk to each other. Only to me.
Grace: Control freak. I should shoot you.
Shan: I think you’ve shot enough people, don’t you?
Grace: Define enough.
Shan: We’re going to need to write in a puppy. And, no, you can’t shoot it.
See, now, I find Grace TOTALLY sympathetic. What’s she drinking? ‘Cause I’m buying the next three rounds.
I like Grace. When’s this book out? :clap:
Sometimes it’s the little things with heroes. With Love and Rockets I changed one adjective that repeated throughout the book and it transformed the hero’s interaction with the heroine 100%. Until my editor pointed it out, I never noticed the problem. Hopefully Alex will get an equally easy fix. :nod:
Um. If I sound incoherent, it’s not because I’m suffering from hebephrenia. Just motherhood. I start to reply to something, get interrupted to comb the toddler’s hair and find the missing lion, and forget what I was thinking in the first place. :doh:
Oh God, no puppies… gggggg
What’s nto sympathetic about Grace.
I *heart* her already *g*
Get the puppy. Don’t let her shoot it though. THAT would make her unsympathetic
*bellies up to the bar*
Grace likes herself a Vodka Collins, unless she’s having a really bad day, in which case she loses the Collins.
I like Grace. Whenâ€™s this book out?
Probably early summer. *feels deadline breathing down neck* :baby:
Hmmmmmmmmmm…must go look that up. :lmao:
And there won’t really be a puppy. I’m having a hard enough time keeping track of the kid.
Hebephrenia is Ellen’s fault. Go visit her blog.
Early summer. Sob. So long to wait…
:rofl: Mandy enjoyed this!
Ouch…what? I did.
Characters can be such pests, can’t they. :devil:
And yes, I’m still pissed at Aulus Julius Pollienus. Go tell me your backstory already. :whip:
:noevil: I’m kind of scared for the puppy :lmao:
