My daughter's nervous. She's shy and listens to the first day of high school horror stories with way too much attention. She's a funny, talented, bright girl, and while she doesn't get along with 'the popular kids' so much, I think she'll do fine.
My son? Gregarious, funny, out-spoken. He's excited to start college. He has a 'college' personality and he'll be happy as pig in mud.
So, my daughter and I and her best friend had our annual back to school beach day yesterday. It's fun and relaxing and they get that one last care-free fling in before the rigors of school start. I splurged and had a chocolate milk shake! Oh yum. It was so good.
And you know what else? Just saw the first draft of my new cover for Strong Blood. It's gonna be cool! When the covers are done, you'll definitely be able to see the progression of the Last Moon Rising series through the covers. My cover designer, Tara Anand, is doing a wonderful job!
