Short update of updatingness

By Vivian Arend

What I’m writing:
-Diamond Dust. This is book 3 in the Takhini Wolves series, and that’s all I’m saying. 😀

What else I’m working on:
-Cover reveal for HIGH RISK will happen on FRIDAY. 😀 I can’t wait to show you!
-Edits on Rocky Mountain Rebel. Yes, I didn’t jump up and down and shout it out (well, not in public), but it’s happening. Book 5 in the Six Pack Ranch will be coming in May of 2013. I’ll tell you who the hero/heroine etc are after Angel releases. WHEEEEE!

What’s next:
-Writing the next in the  Adrenaline series. I’ve already written the first chapter of HIGH PASSION so it can go in the back of HIGH RISK, and oh boy, Devon and Alisha are going to be awesome fun to write.

In other news:

The house is coming along nicely.

Can’t wait for the next one in that series, Viv. Love the title-High Passion. But all your books are filled with passion, so you’re going to have to really amp it up for the title to work. And folks will love ‘Rebel’ for sure.

Hanging out for the next book 🙂 Just a question which probably has a really obvious answer. Why is the house up high as in it looks like it’s on stilts. Is it the way it’s built with the bottom being filled in later or something else? Just never seen one built like that over here.

    Hey emmad.

    The view from this direction shows the walkout basement. What looks like stilts are the support posts for the deck on the main floor level. It’s not easy to see yet, since there’s a pile of dirt in the way, and other construction crap, but later that will be clearer.
