I kind of forgot that I still had copy edits to do on Girl, Stolen. That's what happens when you work on two books a year, one adult and one YA (which is actually like six books - two to write, two to edit, and two to promote.)
Girl, Stolen is coming out sometime in the fall of 2010. It's about a blind girl who's kidnapped. Her mom goes inside a pharmacy to pick up a prescription and leaves the girl in the car with the keys in the ignition. Something similar happened in a nearby town a couple of years back, but the car thief forced the girl out of the car after three blocks.
Me? I started wondering what would have happened if he had kept her.
Despite the expression on my face, copy edits are the easiest kind of edits to do. Especially when the copyeditor notes "very clean."
