I’ve been driving myself crazy trying to come up with something profound or at the very least, amusing to post on the last day of this year. But I’m literally this close – as in five chapters away – to finishing Switchcraft, my third book for Avon. It’s like the giant boulder chasing Indiana Jones – the book is the boulder and I’m the writer trying to write as fast as I can.
In other words, while everyone else is out getting their hair done or matching shoes to tonight’s outfit, I’ll be the lame-o sitting at my computer and bringing in 2006 with people who only exist in my head. Ahh the life of a writer.
Oh, back to my original intent. Instead of a post, I’m posting a sneak peek scene from In Between Men, my gift to you in 2006. Afterall, a writer writes to bring magic into the world. At least that’s how I see it.
Enjoy and may you and yours have a wonderful New Year!

Hi everyone! I finished the book – hurray! Thank God!
Originally I posted an excerpt here on this blog. I didn’t take it away … it is now on my website at http://marycastillo.com/
