Putting up the blog a little early this week. Yes, I am going to be swamped over the weekend. Luthien’s Song releases on the second, which for some is on the first (my time) I hope everyone enjoys, and doesn’t go through too many kleenex boxes, although I did by shares in the company in anticipation. Eniko says there are still scenes in there that make her break out into tears. Little bro is also going to be here for the weekend, or should we say a few hours this weekend, because by the time he drives from Kelowna he is going to be ready to crash. Snoop will curl up with him to help keep him warm. His son will show up, maybe after his father has a little rest. We are having an event on Facebook to celebrate the release of the new book… all things considered I believe that I will be popping in and out like a yo-yo in a contest. I also have other things going on… yes, I am a glutton for punishment… Torrent, move over. On Monday I will have to get up at 4AM to take little bro to the airplane … not looking forward to that. Oh yes, and last, but definitely not least, tonight (Friday) is Halloween. Which means I will be the one at the door handing out goodies this year.
You know what that means? I will be freezing my assets off, not that I wouldn’t mind loosing some of the weight, but it doesn’t work that way. Sigh. No fair. To be on the up side of this, there will be the bonus scenes… fairies, pixies, vampires, zombies, bunnies, tigers,and ghosts. yes, they will all be there dressed up with their winter coats over their costumes because it is COLD. Mother Nature should consider the little ones a bit more, don’t you think? A bit of warm weather so they can go get their sugar highs in comfort. (No I am not giving out candy… the neighbors have all asked me to rethink that custom.)
I didn’t let the upcoming holiday trip me up this week. I wrote 5 chapters on FTK&EE as well as 1 on Integration. Also thought up a name for book 3 of the Tantalus Series (Hunter’s Challenge), as well as book 4, Forbidden Contact. I have a good part of ‘Surrounded by the Light’ firmly embedded in my mind… I hate to say that it will be the last Christmas release with the young Elves. Going to work on something different for 2016, and I already know what it will be, just don’t have a name for it yet.
Snoop is on board for all the writing. By that I mean stretched out across my shoulders or curled up beside me. He hasn’t been feeling well either lately. Not sure what is going on there, beyond him beginning to feel his age. Vet says he is healthy, yet to watch for problems because he is an old pussycat. Nope, don’t know what to think, although she says he is unusually spoiled… Can you imagine that?
I ordered more mugs, yes, I am in a minus position with them… sigh. I am waiting to be told the collector cards have been shipped. And I have a cover to put over FTK&EE I hope everyone likes it, I will put it up tomorrow. Which reminds me, I have paperwork to do too. I think I will take my new stuffed Snoopy, the one that sings the monster mash song, and go to bed… no one wake me until the weekend is over.
