Happy Birthday Krystal

Happy Birthday to Krystal Amelia Teigen, my character in the book Anything But Normal. Even though she's not real, she's very real in my head and today is her birthday. I just got done re-editing my favorite scene where the hero and the heroine reconnect at the lake. Just when you think all is lost there's always a light at the end of the tunnel. That I think is the platform of my story. No matter how hard life is, there is good that will come from it all.

UGH! Right now I'm in the re-editing faze of my book. Does anybody else hate that? I don't know how people did it before the computer world was invented. I think about re-editing with a typewriter, wow! That takes dedication. So instead of editing, I'm writing on my blog because this is fun. I like the fun part of writing. Like creating a world and getting into a character that's the best part. The hard part is trying to make it presentable for someone else to read. I'm lucky that I have my Mom and cousin Brenda to be my editors. They are extremely talented and my cheerleaders to keep me going. A couple weeks ago I went to a writers conference in Scottsdale that was put on by the Romance Writers group. It was so great. Our very own Donna Hatch from ANWA was there teaching a class that I thoroughly enjoyed. My Mom (go cheerleader) spoke to a published author and she agreed to read my first chapter to critic it. That was wonderful to get another opinion. Bette McNicholas is the author(Farragut Square) and co-author of several books and lives right here in Gilbert, AZ. I got to go over to her house and spend a couple hours while she showed me what I needed to edit. So now I've been re-editing the whole book, which is like trudging through mud for me. But it is necessary, I know. So thanks for taking this break with me. Back to editing I go...

Ok here is what i came up with from your suggestions. Thanks. Anymore?

Normal Doesn't fit into Krystal's world. Something is pulling her to Boyd, but will he be willing to face the storms that follow her?
When Seth appears he has all the answers. Spiritual creatures are walking this earth unseen. Is it a curse or a gift that allows her to see them, Krystal wants to know? One thing she does know is we are not alone. The past, the present, and the future are all connected.
Krystal is faced with the hardest decision of her life, she has to choose between Boyd or Seth. Will she be able to do it?
