But the good news is I think I'm catching up now. I returned "Accept this Dandelion" just under the deadline they wanted me to keep if possible. I kept up with England. And now I'm working on catching up with my more deadline friendly clients. All in the midst of a 1-2 hour window while my youngest naps. :) Tis the life of a stay at home mom/writer! Adjusting to a new editor having just come off completing editing with another one on a different book was a challenge, but once I figured out the differences, I went to town! I added several more chapters and changed a few plot points. Otherwise, the changes were more about the way I said things.
"Wrong Place, Right Time," is also moving along in publication. It has gone through the final stages of post-production and is at the point of no return now. As in I can no longer go back and change anything. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and can't wait for it to be released in December. In the meantime, I will reveal the cover here and on blogs all over the place on September 9th, so be watching for that! I LOVE the cover and can't wait to share. If you have a blog, you can sign up to be a part of the cover reveal. The link to the sign up form is on the front page of my website. There are also details about the blog tour in that form.
I have also been working a few Bachelor angles for "Accept this Dandelion." I am searching for someone with a connection to the TV show to read the book and offer a cover blurb. I think it would be awesome to have a past contestant have his or her say about the book. I may be trying futilely, but I'm still trying!
The blog tour for "Someone Always Loved You" in August went well. I was extremely busy during the actual tour so I was relieved I had everything organized in advance. And, speaking of that book, it will be on sale for a week starting September 5th for just 0.99. You can get the link under the books tab. Enjoy!
I feel like my mind runs in a million different directions at once somedays. Today is one of those days! Being a writer and trying to cram it all into an hour or two a day is a challenge. My oldest is off to kindergarten now. Very sad for mama! I struggled with it the first week. It's an adjustment! As hard as it is, I think it'll be even harder when my youngest goes off to school. I still have four years to dote on her, but once she arrives at that stage, it'll be a total life change. I will be all alone all day during the school hours! I have plenty of writing plans and look forward to that aspect. But I know I will be in shock for quite some time. I want to write and an hour a day is never enough. But I don't want to give up my babies either! Time with them means more than anything else in the world.
This blog is very random. :) I know that. I thank you for your attention to it! Stay tuned for more coherent blogs in the future. haha And enjoy the book reviews, cover reveals and things I do on other days of the week on the blog.
