Well, maybe… I seem to have very little motivation lately. This is not good news. The contents for making pies have been on my counter for 3 days now. I have to do something about this. Yes, I am being lazy ... I decided to make my sister 1 or 2 doilies for Christmas. It is time... I have one almost finished. I should be able to work through the next one in a couple days. (Truth is I hate working with the thread I am using) It is difficult and tends to stiffen up.
I ordered the paperback copies of ‘First Contact’ on Wednesday, it is still in production with a notice that I should have them on or about Wednesday. Baring the usual world tour on the way… Yes, I know how jaded that sounds, no I am not sorry for saying it. We all know what I think of the carrier that moves my stuff… … you got the picture.
I am beginning to work on ‘Surrounded by the Light’, while my mind fills in with things from following books. This could be dangerous. Only a week ago I thought this winter could be a lax time… I would write, Integration… then maybe spend some time reworking a couple books I wrote years ago. The the storyline for ‘Tratchars’ struck and stuck. I already know what is going to be in ‘Earwen’s Song’, as well as the following Novella/Novel to follow… Larien’s book that has no name. And the last of the series… Lothrariel’s book. Yes, his will be the last, and I haven’t named it yet either. (the story, however, is going to make the others seem placid in comparison). Yes, I am going to end it with a BANG! Not saying anymore on that.
Integration, is slowly taking form, but I am not pushing at it, that seldom works anyway. Going to try finish writing ‘Surrounded by the Light’ this year yet… that one is my last Christmas release with the Elves… going to do one with the Tantalarians after… only the one. (Well, maybe… it is early to talk about Christmas in 2017).
The packages awaiting the arrival of the paperbacks are all packed and ready to close as soon as they are signed and put inside.) There are times I believe it will never happen… I have never had such a hard time getting a book to print.
The weather here is supposed to be warming up... about time… almost froze some important things here. I must be getting old. At this time of the year, when I was a child I would spend the afternoon outside making forts and digging in the snow… I had a blast. The Christmas season was the highlight of the year, but we grow up and realize that the illusion is for children... and people who love twinkling lights and music... like me.
Tomorrow is the release of ‘Living in the Light’, and here is hoping you join the Elves in their celebration and enjoy the laughter and hijinks. This one is mainly about Marious’ sisters, as well as the children... you can imagine the rest from there. Until next week, have a great time.
