We have finally finished writing Clone Drones. As I said in the title.....almost. We are deep into rewrites. I am taking today off though. I know authors talk about their characters as if they were real......but I honestly have an emotional investment in our characters. I have written about that before, it is truly amazing. This book has been especially difficult because of everything that happens to the O'Rourke team in this book. I do a LOT of rewriting. However this time it is difficult to continue to read and rewrite certain scenes. It has to be done so we're doing it. Of course I am rewriting those scenes too. Also when we were on our vacation last September we decided to make it a working vacation and do research on an area we had never visited before that we wanted to incorporate in our books. I love putting our characters into places that we know well. As you write the different scenes they become alive in your mind. This book ends at our vacation spot, Blue Ridge, Georgia. We loved it there....so peaceful and beautiful. At the end of our book however it is anything BUT peaceful! We got permission to use the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway from the general manager before we used it in the book. I am so glad he liked the idea because I think it makes for a great ending. Blue Ridge has a population of 1300. You would never believe it though when you go there. It has a thriving antique, boutique and restaurant business. Oh yes and lots of tourists. Our hope is that when you read our books you can see all the scenes as vividly as we do.....blog later Joan
