Late Sunday Summary and Into The Lion’s Den

Late Sunday Summary and Into The Lion’s Den

  1. So I wrote over 10k this week.  Hooray for being over the hump and barreling toward THE END.  Of course part of why I pushed so freaking hard (half of that word count was in the last two days) is because this week at the EDJ is going to be…bad.  At least in terms of obscenely busy and I’ll be working 10 hour days all week.
  2. In honor of that, I did ALL my cooking for the week yesterday.  A Mexican…

Fiction Friday Round-up

So the last time I did one of these, I was reading through Candis Terry’s Second Chance at the Sugar Shack.  I finished that and really enjoyed it.  Not QUITE as much as her Sweet, Texas series–but it’s really hard to beat the Wilder brothers.

After that, I picked up Jill Shalvis’ latest Lucky Harbor novel, It’s In His Kissfor my drive down to the coast.  Really enjoyed this one.  Lucky Harbor…

Final Round 3 Check-In

Final Round 3 Check-In

My goals for this round were minimal and simple:

1) Write 20 days out of every 30.  Done.  71 days out of 80.

2) Finish the first draft of To Get Me To You.  Not done.  I made another significant change to the middle this Round that was a set back.  But I’m rolling on it now and just about to cross the 70k mark.  I got all the preorder stuff set up.  It’ll release December 8th.  So I have to have…

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

  1. I spent a lot of time on businessy stuff this week.  My pre-order is all set up for To Get Me To You (that announcement is here), and I’ve got a sale starting on Forsaken By Shadow to run through the end of October.  I had to do a bunch of updates to the site and set up various and sundry promotional things, so that all took up a fair bit of my time.
  2. That being said, I’ve still cranked out 7100…

Fiction Friday: To Get Me To You Available For Preorder

We interrupt this regularly scheduled post about everything I’m reading and loving to announce that To Get Me To You, the first novel in my new Wishful series, is now available for preorder!  Yes, technically I already have a couple of stories in this series–Be Careful, It’s My Heart and Once Upon A Coffee.  Be Careful comes after To Get Me To Youin the timeline because I never intended it to be…

Three Awesome Things

If you can watch this video of sleeping, dreaming puppies and not go AWWWWW, you need your head examined.

Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

I don’t have a whole lot to report.  I’ve been doing a bunch of work on my business plan this week, preparing to launch the pre-order for To Get Me To You, working out details for a sale on Forsakento get a little movement going in my Mirus stuff as well, and looking to the future to see what would make the most sense for promotion, rollover sales, and gaining momentum.  You know, the less fun…

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

  1. I’m home from a fabulous vacation with Lockwood Monk.  Happiness.  Four whole days of writer talk, wine, and a collaborative plot for a dark romantic suspense dealing with a crossroads demon, complete with Winchester jokes (because this is what happens when a romance writer and a horror writer get a little tipsy and start plotting).  I got home last night.
  2. Today’s been all about catch up.  Laundr…
