You heard me right... they are saying rain for tomorrow. We were supposed to get a lot today but they changed their minds. Now they are saying we are going to get it tomorrow, tons and tons of it. Granted, we need the wet stuff, but an inch here or there would be good as far as I am concerned. I don’t need to break out the canoe.
I finished reworking ‘First Contact’ and only added a little (more or less) than 1000 words, yup, FC is over the 95000 word mark. My goal was around the 80 – 85000 words. Yes, they are chatty people, or more like people of action. The first thing I did when I finished it was announce that I was going to go on a reading binge… choke. I did get 3 books read this week… that is the good news… the bad news is… I got 2 chapters written on a new story. Problem spot? Eniko tells me that ‘Malice’ is not a good name for a Historical Romance, no matter how much of a miscreant the villain of the book is, and yes, he has partners in crime. Maybe I should call it ‘A Matter of Trust’. The guy is such a piece of work.
Snoop is in countdown mode, I think he realizes next Saturday is his birthday. Yes, our Snoop will be officially 15 yrs old next Saturday. We are going to have a party. Granted, it will be a people/Snoop party, but those are the ones he likes the most. Everyone is allowed to cuddle the kitty for a while and he will purr for them. Other cats would be treated to hisses and scratches. Yes, Snoop believes he is entitled to enjoy the fruits of his purring when he is surrounded. He puts the effort into this for a reason and those around him should understand this.
Morganna is finished her round of edits on ‘King’s Daughter’ and after I get the results and run through the last 14 Chapters they will be off to Candy for proofreading before they go to Sarah. With luck that book will be formatted by the end of the month. ‘Living in the Light’ has gone through 1st edit and Morganna will have it in her hands the moment I get her report on ‘King’s Daughter’. I expect that back from her before the end of the month. Eniko has started ‘Luthien’s Song’. If she finishes by the time Morganna has gone through LITL, then she will start on ‘First Contact’.
If everything goes smoothly the edits should be finished by the end of the summer and everything formatted. In the meantime Cora is busily making up a cover for ‘Integration’ Book 2 of the Tantalus Series. Becca will make up the covers for “For the King and Elven Empire’ and ‘Surrounded by the Light’. Bad news… there may only be 3 novels and 1 novella next year, depending on the size of ‘For the King and Elven Empire’. I have decided that writing 4-5 novels a year is too much. Especially when there are novellas thrown in for good measure.
Snoop agrees, he says it is much more comfortable lying on top of me if I don’t have a writing pad and pen in my hand. He will allow the book that I am reading because I tend to look over his furry body and not tell him he is in the way. Well, I need to get back into other work mode, and that has been hard to do. My mind doesn’t want to give me any peace. Snoop says he will help… I am to crawl back into bed and get under the cover. He will curl up on top of me and cuddle while he purrs. It is icky enough outside to make me consider the offer.Until next week (which is supposed to be warmer and clear) I hope you all have a wonderful week, enjoy life.
