First draft of Hush Baby and NaNoWriMo

It's hard to explain the euphoric feeling you feel when you finish a first draft of a novel.  It's like you become all bubbly inside like a bottle of champagne.  Relief as the tension is released out of you, POP!
Hush Baby was started in NaNoWriMo last year November 2012.  For those of you who don't know NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month and happens in the month of November every year without fail.  I've participated in NaNoWriMo for the past five years and The Case of Billy B, Not Telling, Defective and CU@8 all had their start in the month of November.
This year I'll be participating in NaNoWriMo again with Diary of a Dancer, but this time it will be more of a biography than a novel.
Back to Hush Baby.  The last few chapters are with my editor now and I must move away from it for a while and start on my next project.  Some space is always good between the first draft and the revisions.

Here's what I was thinking for the back blurb/book description thing:
Kyle Rushton appears to have everything going for him.  His own home, a successful business, a beautiful woman in his bed and an adorable son. 
But when things start to go wrong in his relationship it spreads like a cancer into every facet of his life.  With his life turned upside down, he goes to his sister and some old friends for help.
Sometimes things are not what they seem.

Caught between a need for revenge and a search for justice, Kyle and his friends turn to the past for answers and the more layers they uncover the darker the truth becomes.  Until he finds himself asking – is knowing the truth going to help him move on with his life?

Cindy Vine currently lives in Kiev, Ukraine, and is the author of The Case of Billy B, Not Telling, Defective and CU@8.  All her books are available on Amazon, Apple iStore, Barnes and Noble, Sony.
