I've gotten back one reader review on Dragonborn.  As I feared, the ending did not satisfy the reader.  Luckily, she knew why and the problem can be easily addressed and fixed!  Otherwise, she seemed to like it.  A big thanks to Mary (aka BarGnat)! 

Now I'm just waiting on Lola & Bob's thoughts....Once they've had their say, the serious rewrite begins in earnest.  I can't believe I'm looking forward to it.  Then again, I can't believe I'm missing the characters or their story...I thought I'd be sick of it by now!

Oh, Happy Day!

I found my missing journal!  I was cleaning (yes, cleaning) my scrapbooking area, which is also where I've been keeping all my books since the move into the new house, and I found the journal in the bottom of a box.  I would have found the thing earlier if I had enough bookshelves to hold all my books.  Ah, well.  At least I found the journal. 
Bookshelves will have to wait.
