Two Weeks to Deadline By Diane Chamberlain | July 17, 2012 | 20 It may look like I’m in my office, but I’m actually living in 1960 rural North Carolina (only with air conditioning). I’m working like mad, so excuse me if I’m quiet on the blog for a while. I’ll see you next time I visit 2012! Posted in Blog, Diane's Books, EBooks, Everyday Stuff, Writing and tagged book deadline
You’re almost to the finish line! I can’t wait to read your new book!
Thanks, Beth. I need to type faster!
I can’t wait to read your new book either. I just love your work, and I hope that some day I will be half the writer you are in the business. I’m working like mad to edit what I have so far of my story.
Oooooooh , when is it due to be published ?
Looking forward to the new book. Enjoy the 1960s.
Good luck, Amanda. Revise revise revise!
Marianne, August 2013. Seems so far away but I will have to have written a whole other book by then! Yikes.
Looking forward to another of your books. Still reading and enjoying The Secret Life of Cee Cee Wilks. I am basically a new fan and this is my second. Looking forward to reading The Good Father. Right now —–back to Cee Cee!!!
The Secret Life of Cee Cee Wilkes is my FAVORITE !!!
I just finished The Good Father recently and loved it as well. Even find myself ” looking” for the characters in Diane Chamberlain’s books. : )
I’ll swap you, Cee Cee for The Good Father!!, which was superb
I anxiously await your new book! I have read and enjoyed each of your books and have just purchased the only one I hadn’t read from a used book store, Lovers and Strangers. That is next on my reading list. Love, love, love your books,Diane!
Welcome to my wonderful readership, Fran! Sue, hmm, just remember Lovers and Strangers was one of my two first “training books”. lol.
Love to see photos of you at work, Diane! Is your WIP still called ‘SAVING IVY HART’?
P.S…love, love, love your hair (-:)
Diane, it doesn’t matter…I will still enjoy it, I’m sure!
Margo, it’s called that for now, but I feel sure it will change. I just haven’t been able to come up with a better title. I may have to open it up to you all for help, BUT it will be hard because I don’t want to reveal too much of the story yet. And it’s good to see you on the blog. We miss you when you’re not here!
Diane, I really love the title…hope it stays. I’ll definitely try to be better about commenting on your blog…its been a very hectic summer!…your website is the only one I comment on and will try to get back to posting more. Hope you’re having a terrific summer, altho if your weather is anything like ours, its been stifling…our average temps for the last 4 weeks average 100-104 with heat indexes around 110…can’t remember a summer quite like this…the high humidity and no rain makes it almost unbearable. I wonder if everyone is experiencing a summer like this?
I live a split life in very rural NC on Chowan River & in Hampton, VA where I teach English & Social Work/Human Services at a college. I am a native of NC growing up in Raleigh then traveled the world through the AF, Navy/Marines… Best trip: a month in Nicaragua studying peace & reconciliation. Kindle & Amazon have increased my reading. I found your book by just searching on a random list. I pick any book that interests me by author, location, plot, & of course price. Now I also write & have at least 4 projects in the process… Latest is on a small river community of year-round, vacationers, part-time owners. We are part of the yr round group except for my visits to VA.
Will I finish any? Don’t know because I write for pleasure & enjoy reading what I write. My 1st publication was an editorial in 7th grade in the old Raleigh Times. Biggest was 1st place poetry with a money praise in college. Most are written from an inner voice of a muse which starts with a thought or sentence/phrase that just won’t go away.
Thanks for letting me share.
Anne, what an interesting life you’ve had/have! I’m glad you’re writing about some of it. Sounds therapeutic. Take care of that muse!
I picked up one of your books, Brass ring about a week ago, and was hooked! Have since read The good father, and I find your stories fascinating. I can’t get enough!!
I am a wannabee writer, but am afraid to start. I have a good eye for detail, and would like to get some pointers, if I may!! How do you discipline yourself? How do you find good storylines??
Diane- I just started reading your books. I’m on my 5th one in 3 weeks! Cant put them down 🙂 Your work is amazing!
Thank you, Shanna!
