Yes, I know it has been a while since I posted anything. Life happens, you know? I am working on book #3…slowly, but I want to keep up-to-date.
I have a full-time job now and have not had a lot of time, or energy, to keep up with my blog. Since I wasn’t writing, I also didn’t feel like I had anything to blog.
Let’s change that, okay?
I promise to try to keep up on this. Message me if you have questions. I’ve also attached this to a podcast. Let’s see how THAT goes. 🙂
After last year’s Flight Source International event turned out to be a phenomenal success, it’s no surprise Carol Prokap would host the event again this year. For 2012, the Flight Source Fall Festival Extravaganza will be held on October 17th, in Sarasota, Florida.

Amidst the highlight of Florida’s event season, Carol Pokap assembles restaurateurs, artists, designers and many other local businesses at Flight Source International’s private hangar at the Sarasota Airport for one of the most illustrious charity events of the year.
Because of last year’s success, Carol Prokap and Flight Source International have brought back a few of the the vendors from the previous event, including:
Darwin’s on 4th, an upscale restaurant in the heart of Sarasota, Florida. Chef Darwin Santa Maria has two restaurants in the area, Darwin’s and Selva Grill, both of which have received critical acclaim since opening their doors. Of his restaurants, Chef Darwin says, ““People today are well traveled and they have a taste for global cuisine that they expect to be exciting, new and delicious. Many travelers have discovered urban street foods in major cities around the world and have found these small plates to be a wonderful way to experience different cultures and cuisine styles. In my travels around the world, I always felt that street foods express the essence of a place. In my new restaurant I’m bringing those varied and original flavors and presentations back from the four corners of the earth for all of us to enjoy.” Darwin’s on 4th can be found at 1525 4th Street, Sarasota 34236or by visiting their website at www.darwinson4th.com.

I’ve done it! I’ve finished this novel.
I bet you’re expecting an update: Andrew has made his move to get Sarah back. What do you suppose Sarah’s answer is? That, my friends, is a surprise!
More to come…in the next book. 🙂
This is it. Just one more day and the last line of this book will be written. I can’t believe I’m this close.
My second-to-last update: Andrew has gotten himself into a mess of trouble. Let’s just say, drunk and disorderly. Mary to the rescue, though. You don’t remember Mary? Sarah’s best friend?
Sarah is freaking out about the whole mess. She’s beside herself with more guilt. As if she needs that.
Tomorrow night, the last update. Tonight, the last time I say, more to come…
It’s nearing the end, folks. I would say two or three more days and I’ll be finished with this book.
On to the reason why you’re even on my page – an update: Sarah tried to tell Andrew how she feels, but she just couldn’t make herself do it, and she feels horrible about it. It might just be too late to fix it because it seems Andrew has accepted that it’s over.
He is now in London, where his family is telling him to go to Sarah and make her see reason. Seems kind of funny considering just a few months ago they were afraid she was a psycho killer. lol
Andrew hasn’t really accepted it’s over, he’s just decided to kill the pain with an excessive amount of booze, a tramp at his side, and his face all over Celebrity Weekly (the tabloid news show). What he does next will either make you laugh at his stupidity or yell at the page, telling him he’s stupid. Let’s just leave it at that. More to come….
I have to go with 21 chapters because of the storyline. If I would have left it at 20, Chapter 20 would have been about 100 pages. I know the last line ofthis book, which will mean a sequel. I’m hoping for a positive response from publishers and readers so the sequel does just as well.
It’s getting closer, folks. Are you getting as excited as I am? 🙂
Update time: Andrew and Sarah are two of the most stubborn people I have ever thought up. I suppose I’m to blame for that. lol At least I can say Andrew is trying, but Sarah refuses to give an inch, even though she’s about to lose it.
Andrew is on his way to London where he is sure to be bombarded with more lectures from his parents about how he should get his butt back to the States and win Sarah back. And to think, just a little more than a month ago, his mum was certain Sarah was some psycho killer.
Sarah is going to visit her mom in California, with no intention of going anywhere near Los Angeles. If she sees Trevor, she’ll give in. It’s easier to say no over the phone and hang up on him than if she was face-to-face with him as he berated her.
Everyone they know is telling them how stubborn they are. Is Andrew going to go off the deep end for real this time? I don’t mean a three-day bender at home. I’m talking a full-blow leap off of the cliff of sanity! Hmm. And what happens if he does? Is Sarah going to find out? And if she does, what is she going to do to pull him back up? Or will she even bother?
I guess we’ll see. More to come…
It’s so close now I can taste it! The final page is getting closer and closer. I am so excited.
Update time: Sarah is one stubborn woman. She isn’t listening to reason from anyone. What is her daughter going to say when she comes home? That’s certainly not going to turn out well.
Sarah’s best friend, Mary, is taking a trip to London, and guess who else is planning a trip? That isn’t going to turn out well, either.
Every one of Sarah’s friends is telling her what an idiot she is. Trevor is trying to talk her into calling Andrew. It’s just not going to happen. She has made up her mind, or is she, deep down, having doubts? Only she knows that, and, well, so do I. 🙂
I guess you’ll just have to wait and find out the drama that is about to unfold as the rest of this last chapter progresses. I’m telling you, you’re going to want to know what happens, but the ultimate outcome will have to wait until the sequel. HA HA! More to come…
I think I may get this book written long before my deadline of the 31st. I’m getting really excited.
Update time: Andrew messed up big time, and he knows everything. He knows what Sarah and Chris have been hiding. He couldn’t exactly be angry with her for it, but he’s hurt by her lies. He wants honesty between the two of them. It’s the only way their relationship is going to work. Sarah knows this, but because she hurt him by lying, she has decided the best thing for them to do is cut their losses before she causes him any more pain.
It’s already destroying them both. She’s having an emotional break-down and he is too stunned to feel anything yet. After his near destructive behaviour after their last break-up, it’s not likely he’ll stay calm for long. God only knows what he’ll end up doing this time. I guess we’ll see how it all turns out. Only a few more days of filming and he’s free to spiral into the depths of destroying himself. More to come….
