The final in the series – I was sad to start it, and very sad to end it, but I have to say, without giving anything away, I am very happy with how it turned out for Sookie.  Now with that – if you don’t want spoilers – do NOT continue.

Ok – Eric – seriously turned into a douche – I still wonder about him though – he “will not release her.” WTF does that mean? Like he has a choice!  I was really hoping he would turn out better.  And Bill – I know many were rooting for him, but I never really liked him that much – not sure why.  Sam is perfect.  He;s messed up like Sookie – they know their secrets – understand that they will never be perfect, and evidently they have hot sex, which as we all know, is very important in Sookietown.

I will miss the series, as it was a good escape from reality.  I always read the books too fast though – this last one I read in about three hours.  I read too dang fast!  But it made me laugh, and cry actually – yes I cried at the end.  I have to admit I have been hoping for her and Sam the whole time.  He’s adorable 🙂

Gone a bit tooooo long!

So sorry for the absence! But it makes the heart grow fonder, yes?  Been having life times -you know, the good, the bad and the really fun!  Lots of concerts, lots of books, lots of work, and all sorts of money issues 🙂  Looks like I need to catch up for the year – so I better get going!!

First off – I was able to meet Gillian Flynn at the National Writer’s Series here in Traverse City.  I was literally jumping from foot to foot in line, got to talk to her and got her to sign my book.  Dang I love authors!! She was funny, and gave a lot of insight into her writing process.  I am always fascinated by the process of different writers, and have heard form a few now, including her, to NOT use an outline!  Very interesting!

Also talked to Doug Stanton, who is a local – they are making a movie of his Horse Soldiers book – we’re so proud he is a local!

 

Oh and ALSO – Gillian’s books Sharp Objects and Dark Places are being made into movies!!!  Charlize Theron is playing Libby in Dark Places!! A bit taller than I imagined her to be, but sure will be interesting!!  Ok – and on to the show…..
