Our editor sent back editorial suggestions for Magic Shifts.
I absolutely love it! I had such a good time reading this story. Fabulous, fabulous book, Ilona and Gordon. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
But there are a couple of muddled spots in the plot line. I felt like we were beating people over the head with Important Plot Point! but turns out it’s not clear enough. We are going to fix the most glaring things today and the beta will go out today, hopefully. It was supposed to have gone out last week, but we dropped everything to go to San Antonio in an effort to rescue Kid 2’s project.
We had planned on the Menger hotel, which holds the dubious title of being the most haunted hotel in San Antonio, but it was full so we stayed in Emily Morgan instead. Which used to be a hospital. Seventh floor was the mental patient ward.
I’ll just let that sink in.
We went to the seventh floor. It had a weird feeling to it. Then we smelled iodine and decided to get out of there. On the bright side, the rooms were expensive, but awesome. Very large with deep, soaker bathtubs.
The kids had a blast. Many pictures were taken and I will share some once Kid 2 comes home with her project from school today. They went on haunted San Antonio tour and came back with awesome stories such as, “Mom, there used to be a place where they hanged people, but the city needed the land, so now there is a Holiday Inn there.”
Well, that is for the rambling. Oh and I should have a book post coming up for you.
