I have a bad feeling that I recognize that howl. But rather than spoil the moment, I think about the good things.

Norm Stevens Senior tells me I'll never get that truck off my land. He says it's too old, been there too long, the hoist will try to lift the thing and it will break apart into red stones of rust.

  14. I'm wondering where that howl is coming from. A dog? A wolf? A crazy person?
    The opening makes me think of old farmhouses with a row of rusting trucks and farm equipment parked behind them. The cover and title definitely work with that opening!
    Thank you for hosting The Friday 56 every week.

  15. Both those quotes are intriguing- is the howl human or animal? And what is the significance of the rusty old truck?

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
