Finished Olivia

Today I finished going over Julie's OLIVIA. It's the last of the four for me to read, and can I say it was so much fun to see how the very same scenes I'd been over in three other books came across fresh and new, and with new new meaning yet again.

While reading OLIVIA, I laughed and teared up, and I finished the last page with a happy, contented sigh.

At one point I came to a detail that appears in all four books, and I couldn't for the life of me remember who had the idea for it originally.

I think this is how true collaboration should be. I count myself so lucky to be part of this project. This could only work with close writer friends who know one another well and think in similar ways.

Now I'm getting eager to hear back from our editors!

Finished reading OLIVIA

by Heather Moore

I started reading/editing OLIVIA (by Julie Wright) this morning. And I just finished it about 7:00 p.m. I only took a break to go to a lunch meeting and to make sure my kids were where they were supposed to be. It is a fabulous read, full of emotional punch, and Livvy is a character who I wish I could go and help her spray paint "dragon lady" on her mother-in-law's house.

Now that I've read all four book in the series, I can't wait to hear the readers' response. But first, we have to get the official acceptance from our publisher/s, then minor details like editing/cover design/press deadlines . . . and THEN . . . it will be like one big book club.

Get ready . . . get set . . .!
