Mark

Congrats on getting back into your house and on turning in your book!

Hank Phillippi Ryan

SO interesting! Can you talk a tiny bit about what you changed?

(and I'm in massive revisions ,too, never re-organized this much, and it's daunting.)

And HURRAY Charlaine! Finished house, finished book (very thematic), and almost spring!

Charlaine Harris

Thanks, Mark. It was the second time I'd finished the book, but at least it's finished.

Hank, I had an unconvincing passage in the book in which Aurora is mugged. All my readers said the motive was transparent, so that plot point had to go. And with it went a whole trail of other incidents leading to and from that mugging. I didn't realize how much I rewrote until I was through.

Congratulations on finishing your rewrite, Charlaine. Rewriting is kind of like pulling a thread on a sweater. One little tug, and the whole thing starts unravelling. It must feel good to be back home again.

Elaine, it feels wonderful. I was incredibly whiney about spending a month out of my lair.
