As I await comments from beta readers, I am almost in hysterics over how emotional my Ma is about my novel. It’s like watching a child see the sky for the first time. I think she might be even more attached to my characters than I am. It’s just hilarious how after so many chapters she asks me a tonne of questions about what will happen to whom. I even said this afternoon, “Ma, I wrote an entire book, so you can answer your questions by reading the rest of it.”
Gosh, would every reader be like my own mother!
I’m not naive, though. I know this novel won’t be for everyone. Espcially since it has no pervy vampire sex. 😉 It does have sex, though, in a comical sort of way. Silly sex is the only kind worth having, in my opinion. So buy my book when it comes out, ’cause it gots sexy silly sex!
My Ma has survived the sexy silly sex stuff. She told me that she’s old, so nothing much shocks her that way. Really, Ma? Hmmm.
Even though I’m in suspense over my beta readers’ comments, I can’t wait for the next excitable phone call from my Ma. She just cracks me up. So far it’s my favourite part of the writing process.
