or it comes out with a southern accent. so I've decided that I want to learn to speak German. this is because if I want to go to grad school, I have to speak a historically significant second language. apparently Spanish is not significant and I don't get that. also, two of my characters are German and sometimes think in German and I don't trust Google Translate. another reason is because I just want to learn another language. this isn't exactly easy where I live despite the fact that the University of Florida is here. so I've been investigating programs like Rosetta Stone and the like. I don't know how successful that will be because I think if you can't learn it in a classroom, the next best way is to just have your ass dropped off in the country and force yourself to learn it but that won't be happening any time soon. if anyone has any suggestions or recommendations for me, let me know.
so I finished my edits and now it has gone to internal design. I'm getting so excited because it is actually happening!! I have ISBN numbers, a lovely cover and my edits are done. WOW. now I have to come up for my marketing blitz when it releases. I plan on touring but I am definitely going to give away some sweet vampire related things along with my book on my blog when the time comes.
also, I want to host some of my sister Cambridge Press authors as guests here next month and in Novemeber. so stay tuned!!
