It is another blog day, and it seems like the last one only happened yesterday. The days have flown by so quickly I can barely believe they actually went by… did I live those? I feel like I did… the power charged duo made the nights feel like they were all there… I am going to have to hobble those two yet. They have definitely been on a roll and are happy to report more coming up. There are times I wonder if spring isn’t around the corner, because of all the excess energy they have. I certainly could use a little of it.
I have only written approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of To Capture an Ancient. The good news on that is that I am getting back into Elven Chronicle mode, after having written 2 stories in The Tantalus Series. I should be finished To Capture an Ancient this upcoming week and perhaps even get it moved into the editing pile… which is growing and backing up. The good news on that, is that the shorter stories go through the line faster, and there are 2 of them in there now (if you include TCAA). Yes, I use abbreviations a lot when I write, one of the reasons no one can read what I have written… LOL. When I have finished with TCAA, I will begin on Kings of the Empire, which will take several months to finish, unless I get on a roll.
Becca has now formatted Earwen’s Song, and it is up for preorder on the ebook trail… she has also done the interior for the paperback, and Cora is doing the back cover over the weekend, so by Tuesday, Becca should have the proof copy in her hands. If it passes, those who have ordered arcs will be getting them. One of the people who write reviews has already read her copy and reports it is the best she has read in the series to date. I hope other people share her view.
Writing has been a challenge lately with the kitties deciding that they not only need attention, but have every intention of taking it. Which means I can be writing away, then suddenly have a furball in my arms without notice. Unlike Snoop, who used to do the same thing, these don’t purr, which means they are not thankful for what they have. I will have to do something about that. Could my Tath and Thena kitties be a little spoiled?
There has been less breakage, because there is less to be broken, the house looks like I have children because there are toys everywhere, but they refuse to let me go very far, without tripping over them. It has been worse since last Sunday when I left them alone for nearly 8 hours, while I went to a mini family reunion. The moment they heard me come through the door… it was mama, mama, mama. What would they do if I left for a week, like people are telling me I should do? Now there is a thought, maybe they would appreciate what they had then… what do you think?
While I consider that, I would remind anyone who hasn’t done it yet, to go to the Reading Cafe and enter the draw for a signed copy of Tratchars. The copy will come from the printer’s, and I will send a signed bookplate to add to the inside. I am thinking that the next step for me is to get the cover for Elven Chronicles short stories for children done up, after Becca formats the inside. The Adult version will be waiting for TCAA, which will take a while yet to go down the lineup, not to forget mentioning my finish writing it.
Well, this has gone on long enough… until next week, have a good one, and if anyone can think of a way to settle down two teenage cats with cabin fever, let me know.
