It has been a long time since I updated this Blog.

The wife had surgery, so I had house duty and caring for her. She Is finally back to doing almost everything that she couldn’t do before the operation. Glad she went through with it.

On the writing front, it is time to start on the synopsis and query letter. I know who I want to query first to get her to take on my first book of the series. The list is in an order of my wants for an agent, not agents that do thrillers or crime novels, but who take on mainstream fiction.

May have to do an outline besides the synopsis, as some agents want one. I find these harder to write than the story itself.

I also need to get back to working on the next novel. This one has a lot of tension between the lovers.

Here is a scene for you to evaluate.


When they finished breakfast, Hawks decided to look in on Patricia before leaving for the office. “Patricia is still sleeping. I'll see you tonight,” he said as he came back into the kitchen.

“Steve, I've been thinking about coming back to work. Do you think it's too soon?” she asked, glancing over the paper at me.

“You don't have to come back yet,” he said. “Your leave of absence is not due for review for another two months and I think Patricia needs you here.”

“We can always get someone to watch her.”

They had discussed this before, but he still wasn't sure how he felt about it. “Yes, but she's only six months old and I think her mother should be the one she is with for a little longer.”

“Well, we can discuss it more tonight. With the change in mission, I may be needed,” she said.

“If I need a female agent, I can always use someone else. That way I won't have to worry about you,” he said and knew instantly it was the wrong thing to say.

“If that’s the way you think, then goodbye. I'm going to check on the baby,” she said, shoving her chair into the table.

“Sadie, I'm sorry. If you want to come back to work, it's fine with me,” he said, hoping she would change her mind.

“We'll discuss it,” she said and stomped out of the room.
