You GO Jackie! I've got my writing fingers crossed for you....

OK, so I guess we'll just have to sit on our hands and wait. I can do that... wait, no I can't. I have to work on my WIPs too :D

You need a title for your loyal readers/followers... Heather has her "minions"... what are you going to call yours/us?

Good luck on the writing/editing. I'll be checking your wordcount :)

Thanks, Bethany and Ewoh!

Hmmm. So, should I officially call you guys "Hellions"? Awfully close to "Minions." I may have to pay Heather permission. Unless I gave her a spiffy title.

What do you think, Heather? Want to be the Head Hellion? Or, um, a Hellcat? Or...Hellacious?

I can handle "Hellion" :D

Hellion it is, Ewoh!

Your faithful Hellions will miss you, Jax. But get that book done! :-*

curious...

While driving home from my doctor's appointment, I stopped in a truck stop and perused their book selection (finished reading the novelization of X-Men 3 and felt like buying another book). I saw a title called "The Road to Perdition" which immediately made me think of Road to Hell and made me wonder if there was any talk between you and the agent and the editor about similiar titles.

But I suddenly have a thought...didn't they make a movie out of a book with that title? Which is COMPLETELY different than what you're writing...so maybe I'll just shut up now. ;)

Rabe, you're too funny! :-*

Actually, last year Harlequin had a book called HELL'S BELLES. Good thing you can't copyright a title, eh?

Go, Go, Go, Jackie!
Happy Writing!

Write, write, write. Deadlines are a bitch.

Thanks, Pencilone and JPatrick! As of this moment, I'm up to 62,188 words. Planning on finishing the chapter I'm working on (17) and hopefully kickstarting the next. It's getting there! Woot!

"Head Hellion" sounds so DIRTY! I love it. Count me in :D
