The last word was written yesterday on the first draft of Miner in Petticoats. 399 pages! It doesn't feel that long. The characters were ones I wanted to hang out with longer, but had to finish the story. As with all romance stories, they found their happy ever after, and I left a thread to hopefully make the reader want to read the next book.
As I hit the save button, I wondered what am I going to feel like when I hit that button the fifth and final book for the Halsey brother series? How will I feel when there are no more of their stories to write? Relieved? Sad? Melancholy? The good thing is, I will always have the books to read when I'm missing them. Just like picking up the phone and calling an old friend or family member.
Do you have books you read over and over again because you want to visit with them again?
