It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. May have forgotten how to.
What have I been up to since last time?
Busting my tail to finish Discord’s third book, Save the Last Vamp for Me, which is currently with my beta readers. Yay!
I’ve also adopted a new Shewawa (That’s Chihuahua for those who don’t appreciate my uncaffeinated attempts at humor), Miss Honey.
House Hunney and our girl have been busy building a deck, or rather, a big covered porch. HH calls it a deck, I call it a porch, so we’ve taken to using “dorch” for it rather than argue about who’s right or, you know, Google the proper term for this creation. I’ve helped with some of it, and really need to pay a few visits to my chiropractor now.
After working through beta suggestions, I’ll be sending Book 3 to my editor, Tonya, who will commence with her editing heroics. It will be heroic, because she’s telecommuting to her new job while packing up house to move to another state, on top of a heavy classwork load for her MBA.
Man, Book 3 hasn’t had an easy time of it. The poor thing has suffered through being written and rewritten during the loss of HH’s mother, and loss of two of our furry family members, a severe bout of the flu for both HH and me, several severe allergy attacks (I love spring and summer so much), and assorted other “Really?” and “Are you freakin’ kidding me?” events.
To say my first year actually earning a living as a writer has been interesting would be a slight understatement.
In other news:
The family and I really appreciate everyone who has decided to give my books a try. I appreciate all the ratings and reviews you’ve left on the Amazons, Goodreads, and even Scribd. You’re helping other readers decide if my work will be their cup o’tea or not, and that’s mighty nice of you.
Plus, you guys are the reason there’s a snazzy, 145 sq. feet dorch outside. See, I’m a lot more productive on the word herding when I’m not sitting at my desk, my computer with all its shiny internet distractions in my face. And that’s why House Hunney agreed to build the dorch.
My main focus for the rest of the year will be to write Discord’s 4th and 5th books, though I will take breaks to work on some of my other projects here and there. I have many to finish, and finished they must be!
I owe a few people formatting or covers, so there’s those things to do.
I haz plans! To Do lists! Word quotas to meet and beat!
That’s it for now. Enjoy your Friday.
