Okay, so Random.org helped me out, and the winner of the signed copy of Fancy White Trash is Rachel R, and the winner of the signed copy of Skin Hunger is Theresa Milstein! I wish I could have gotten more books and stuff to give away! Winners, please email me at lchardesty at yahoo dot com with your addresses.
Anyway, on to setting!
I’m on a family vacation.
I’m both excited and annoyed. I have three children, so it’s pretty exhausting. Plus, the first stop is my parents’ house.
I adore my parents, but my mom likes to go, go, go, and I’m really more of a homebody. I don’t really like to go on outings, just to go somewhere. Especially when I could be writing or something. Plus, my kids tend to realize that my mom will be quicker to get them snacks or something they want, so they bug her. If I do nothing but pay attention to them, I can nip that in the bud before she gives in, but if I’m, say, WRITING or READING and not paying attention, she will give in and then eventually get annoyed that I’m not doing anything. *shakes head* Needless to say, I don’t think I’m going to get much writing time on this trip. *SIGH*
BUT, I am excited because I am visiting the places two of my novels are set in! YAY! My current WIP, That Succs, is set in and around Vegas, which is where my parents live (for two more weeks, and then they’re moving—lol). Then we are all going to South Dakota to visit my grandmothers. My completed novel, Lure, is set in Western South Dakota, basically where my mom’s mom lives (the middle of nowhere-ish).
I plan to do posts when I get back, highlighting both places, but I wanted some advice first. What kinds of things do you think I should look for/at? If you have a novel or novel idea set in either of these places, what information would you want about them?Larissa :)
