Yes, it is time to get back to work here. The writing break is over, and although I should be hard at it, I am not. ‘The Goddess’ has only increased by 1 chapter this week. What should I blame that on? Cats? Well, they do have give the impression that they think that I have extra time for them. They are bouncing extra heavily onto me, as the new bruises from last night indicate. But, I can’t really blame them for my shortcomings.
The tablecloth that I am crocheting? Can I blame that? It definitely has taken the lion’s share of my time lately, and if everything goes well, I should be finished it by next weekend. I will take a picture of it and post it, so you can see what it looks like.
I have a new series in mind that has been nagging at me for a while, and yes, I have written 1 chapter on it, but that isn’t the cause of my being lax. I was ill, but that usually doesn’t slow me down much, and everyone has this cold. It is an excuse, but not a good one. This leaves me with a choice of being lazy, (a good possibility), or dealing with a lot of interruptions, (another good possibility.)
Lets just call it transition time, like the weather, and leave it at that. Speaking of weather, wow has it been cold lately. The good news is that it is warming up for this upcoming week, and we deserve it. We haven’t seen weather in the minus forty range for several years. True, it was including windchill, but that counts if you have to go outside. I didn’t. (Call me chicken).
So, what by way of advancements, have been made on the books during the holidays? Not much with everyone getting sick. Eniko finished off the main edit on ‘Lost Kingdoms of the Empire’, and is now working on ‘The Phoenixes Choice’. ‘The Siren Connection’ is waiting in the wings, but is a short. Sarah intends to start on the last stage edit for ‘Merika’s Story’. When she is finished, it will go to Betty for proof-read, and then get put into Becca’s file. ‘Intercession’, and ‘Forbidden Contact’, are in the formatting file, waiting until it is time for them to go through that phase before they will be ready to be preordered.
‘Gabriel’ and ‘Marious’ Story’ was on sale for a week, and have been taken off.There were several people who grabbed copies, sorry to those who missed. ‘King’s Champion’ and ‘Life Mate to a King’ took their place for 0.99 each. They will be left at that price for a week, before they are replaced by the following two. Within the next two weeks, Cora Graphics will be making the cover for ‘The Goddess’, but I will not release that until ‘Kings of the Empire’ comes out. Also, has everyone seen the new ‘Elven Chronicles’ trailer? I love it, don’t forget to check it out.
I would tell you about the week the kitties had, but there isn’t much to tell. When the weather is this cold, the mere mention of the temperature is enough to make them head for the feather blanket. (that blanket needs airing out, it smells suspiciously of cat.) Well, it is time for me to move on, hope to have more to report next weekend. In the meantime, stay well, and hope 2017 is better to the world than 2016 was.
