Returning to Hood Hamlet

I must admit to having days like the anxiety kitty above. Everything is going great, but a part of me is waiting for a piece of the sky to fall. I've been doing better with that though!

I've been working on my new proposal. I rewrote Chapter Two yesterday. I finally figured out what was bugging me. Now to get Chapter Three written. The first chapter and synopsis are good to go so I'm almost there.

This story is set in Hood Hamlet and features a mountain rescue volunteer as the hero but unlike my other Mount Hood stories it's not set at Christmastime. I wanted to try writing the setting in a different season. I'll be curious to see what my editor thinks of it.

I've mentioned how I never expected this to be a series when I first came up with the idea for a fictional mountain rescue unit, OMSAR. But whenever I write about Hood Hamlet, it's like coming home. The place might only exist in my mind and on the page, but I love visiting there.

Speaking of Hood Hamlet, the photo below came across my Facebook feed and reminded me so much of Christian, my hero from Firefighter Under the Mistletoe , especially given one of the firefighter related scenes!

Psst.  Don't tell anyone I said this...  But thanks for getting the cat out too.

I've got a busy Friday ahead. What about you?

I'm sure your book will be great, whatever season you set it in! Love the pictures today. Both are very cute.
Hope you and yours had a good day!

I love the picture of the dog and firefighter--especially with the caption.

Looking forward to hearing what you come up with.
