I spent over a year living in Tennessee, and during that time I really fell in love with country music. I know the songs sound the same on the radio no matter where you are, but somehow, living outside of Nashville, that kind of music had some extra power. I dare anyone to live in that part of the country for any period of time and not come away a fan of that kind of music. Anyway, there’s a funny Brad Paisley song called “Waiting on a Woman” that was always playing when I was there. As the title suggests, it’s all about the singer’s experiences waiting for his girlfriend/wife, since she’s always late in getting ready, but mostly about how she’s so worth the wait.
Right now, I’ve completed two book manuscripts, and am waiting for both of them to be edited. Let me tell you, Brad, if you think waiting on a woman is maddening, try waiting on an editor to finish working on your book! Oh my gosh. I actually started and finished Killing Adam, my second book, during the time when I was waiting for my first editor to get through her backlog and work on Pointe Patrol, since I didn’t have anything to do while I waited. I could have probably squeezed a third book in there as well, but I think you’ve got to draw the line somewhere.
Luckily, things are starting to move now, and I’m expecting there to be a lot of work very soon, so I think the wait is almost over. I’m very excited to be so close to launching Pointe Patrol, and, like the song, feel like the wait is going to be worth it.
