I am trying, honestly.

I have finished writing ‘Into the Demons Lair’,AddEmoticons04262 the last chapter gets typed out today and I will know how many words there are going to be, AddEmoticons04263although that will undoubtedly change when it is being rewords, one of the next step. AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09 First I will type, then copy onto paper, AddEmoticons04274then I will rework the rough copy, allowing for edits, AddEmoticons04268fix the electronic file to suit the fixes, and, when all that is over, I will ship it off to Eniko for first edits. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? AddEmoticons04220 Try doing that with 17 lbs of cats wanting to be held. AddEmoticons04231 In Thena’s case, it starts with her wanting me to through her squeaky toy so she can chase it while I hold the Tath cat… not great for the typing phase.smiley-confused005  I will make it work though.giving-thumbs-up-winking-smiley-emoticon

I went to the eye Dr. the other day.  nervous-934Yes, this girl needs reading glasses, although I didn’t need a Dr. to tell me that. making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon What I did need was a prescription to get it right. smiley-confused005 So now I wait for the call to say that they have been made up and are ready to be picked up. AddEmoticons04258 10-25-31 They said 5 working days, so if they are talking not to include the day that I handed in the order, that will be Tuesday…AddEmoticons04224 10-08-23 which figures, because I have a Monday appointment..AddEmoticons04236 10-01-50. hate having to do a daily drive into the city for limited reasons. AddEmoticons04274 22-59-06 Yes, I can be lazy that way. AddEmoticons04263 22-49-23 It seems like Dr. appointments never coincide with what I have planned unless they are made far in advance, and they they have a reason to throw a wrench in the works.AddEmoticons04269

I am waiting to hear from Sarah, AddEmoticons04261she has been sick and has gotten behind in her life. AddEmoticons04274 22-59-06 She is working on the last of one book, before she takes possession of ‘Tratchars’. AddEmoticons04240 22-18-24 She will then do the finishing touches on that one, before she takes on ‘Earwen’s Song’,AddEmoticons04231 10-25-25 which is in second phase edits. AddEmoticons04282 21-08-40 (expecting that back in the first week of October, then it goes on to Morganna). AddEmoticons04287 13-27-02 Next week I get to see the proposed cover for ‘Kings of the Empire’, which I should be writing this winter. AddEmoticons0424 20-55-10 The paperbacks for ‘Integration’ FINALLY got here, after multiple proofs. AddEmoticons04225 22-31-36 It looks gorgeous, thank you Cora Graphics. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon The cover for ‘Into the Demons Lair’ will get done in the first week of November. bth_SmileyHappyDance (With the cover for ‘To Capture an Ancient’, being done in December.1317309lsk5aj07xu  I am looking forward to seeing them all.AddEmoticons04237

I am changing the size of the cards I have been sending out,smiley-happy120 from postcard size, to collector card size, smiley-confused005much easier to handle. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon I think people will like that they aren’t so big. AddEmoticons04280 21-51-21 It will take time to make the transition, but it will get done.AddEmoticons04231 22-18-20

Well, I have a list of things to get done today that extends from one end of my arm to the other, AddEmoticons04258 10-25-31and two cats who are chasing each other around,AddEmoticons00954 which means that I won’t be able to go anywhere without them running circles around my feet as I move around…AddEmoticons00916 What you doing, mama? AddEmoticons00926 Can I come? AddEmoticons00949 Are you going to open that door? addemoticons00935 22-24-21 Can i go in too? dd27 Watch me jump, mama, jump, jump, jump.  addemoticons00954 22-31-47 Hold me mama, I am tired.  cat 24 Are you sure you don’t want to go to bed and cuddle? cat 22 They had their biggest blast this week when the books came in from the printer.AddEmoticons00949  I let them play in the packing paper,addemoticons00954 22-31-47 so I could sign the books in peace. AddEmoticons00916 Granted, that meant I had to clean half the house because of the spread paper on the floor, but you would be surprised what 5 miles of paper and 2 sparklie pompoms will accomplish.cat 22

Until next week, have a good one..giving-thumbs-up-winking-smiley-emoticon. finding a way to ship off all these books in the U.S. smiley-confused005 No worries, it will happen.Smiley-Begging

    My, such a busy schedule!! Trying to schedule a couple of appointments in one day rarely ever happens. 😦 Reading glasses-ah well, I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 11 yrs. old – nearsighted and for reading (all in one pair thank heavens). The Dynamic Duo can’t help themselves-they just love their Mommy! Have a good weekend! 🙂

    Those bratz never a dull moment with them around. Sounds like everything is moving right along. I was wearing reading glasses at 40. LOL Can’t wait to see the new covers. I don’t worry about you getting the packages to us I know you will do the best you can. Thanks for my Saturday laugh.
