Greetings from the Hermit-Writer. Personal NOTE: I'm having surgery on my hand at 8:45 AM today...so if you don't see me about on this Interweb-thingie for a week or so (excluding my queued photos)...that's the reason :) Time to get the old fingers straightened out. Oh, it stinks growing old.

The Hermit-Writer dithers over decisions today. The cover decision always looms large.
Today I got an excellent recommendation from a wonderful beta reader:
- Intersperse chapters in Sanction from the rogue wolf's perspective to give the novel more of the action paranormal readers expect.
~ Sanction is distinct from the first two books because they are action-driven, more typical paranormals.
~ Sanction is very character-driven, and humor is central. I fear the humor would clash with the violent scenes from the rouge wolf's perspective.
~ But the new chapters would make Book 3 more consistent with Books 1 and 2.
~ All of my later novels are in a single character's perspective. My one POV bigotry warns me away from changing my writing style.
~ Sanction was outlined to be a collaboration with CL Bevill's Bubba series...which are strictly humorous and tongue in cheek. While Caren opted not to collaborate, I still feel a need to remain loyal to the humor her novels are based upon.

Greetings from the Hermit-Writer. Bike ride through Tampa [April 27] From Seminole heights, following the Hillsborough River, onto Davis Islands. Nice ride, but fried my brain before I got home. Hope you enjoy the P1 pix.
Have a great week!
