I haven't put a book in San Francisco for quite a few years. I think maybe "Simple Charms" my story in the 1993 Valentine anthology was the last.
Before that I did Marry Sunshine which was set there. It was where we went on our honeymoon eons ago, so I have fond memories of the city. And now I think it may be the site of book # 60.
Sixty? Hard to believe.
Time flies when you're having fun, I guess. Or books do. Well, no, they don't, actually, as anyone who has been reading this blog and listening to me whine about how long it takes to get things right already knows.
What's hard is to be sure to tackle something new and fresh. After sixty books, that's a bit more of a chore than it used to be. Of course the people are always new. But the various ploys are not (marriage of convenience, anyone?). So looking for a new angle is always interesting. And going back to San Francisco should be fun.
I'm still looking. I am getting a better handle on the people. But I don't see much conflict yet. Still having to learn who they are in order to find that. Getting there -- I hope.
I see that ClustrMaps has given me a new map as of sometime earlier this month. It looks weird to see the process starting all over. I got rather used to my other map. Now I need dots all over again. So if you know anyone in the places that aren't dotted (there are lots of empty spots) send them along. The more the merrier.
I noticed from the Neoworx counter that Uruguay, Poland and Sri Lanka have recently joined the list of countries. That's exciting.
But have you seen Kate Walker's list? Good grief, I didn't know there were that many countries!
