I have been procrastinating. Three chapters in as many weeks is not performance. It is time I got my head out of the sand. The book is in my mind, ‘Teryka Rose’ is forming, so I getter get with the program, or I will have three books in this brain and it will feel as if it is ready to explode, especially with a new series forming as we speak. Yes, there is another series up there. It isn’t enough that ‘Lost Kingdoms’ is pushing, or ‘Guardians of the Empire’, but so is ‘Elven Gateways’… yes, 3, count them, 3 Elven spinoffs from the ‘Elven Chronicles’. I haven’t even slid any of the ‘Elven Gateways’ stories into my writing or release schedules, but it is there in my mind.
To bring you an update on how things are progressing, Sarah says she will finish edits on ‘Merika’s Story’ over the weekend. I will go through it again after that and pass it to Betty for proofreading. Candy, says she will finish ‘Lost Kingdoms of the Empire’ over this weekend too. I will also go through that and then ship it off to Sarah, for final edits. I expect that she will go through it quickly, mainly because it is a short story. That leaves Eniko. She is working on ‘The Phoenixes Choice’, no I don’t have an update on that one, but it will get done. I plan on writing at least one, if not two chapters on ‘The Goddess’ today. Becca will be busily formatting ‘Intercession’ soon, and it will be up for preorder.
Speaking of ‘The Goddess’, I now have the cover, giving a sigh. It is the best one yet. No, I am not going to show it, but watch THE READING CAFE on February 17 for more on that front, along with the review on ‘Kings of the Empire’.
I took the Bratz to get their yearly shots at the vet’s yesterday. Thena was her usual hissy, snarly self… she does so love that vet… good thing I had her claws trimmed. She actually took the needle better than she did the examination. She is doing well, but it has been a battle. Tath did his usual thing, he cowered in the back of the kennel, after my having to push him into it in the first place… yes, he most definitely can be like that. He is doing great, very healthy pussycat, vet says if he wouldn’t be so shy he would have taken all the shows in his class, or even overall. He is a prime pussycat. When it was all over, we pushed Tath back into the kennel, and Thena went boogaloo all over him. Wow, talk about someone in a temper. I warned her to watch her language, as well as claws…. she gets mad and her mouth would make a sailor blush. Tath took it like a gentleman, and waited for his turn for payback. Then, at 3AM this morning, he attacked. Yes, I was woken up to the sound of Thena getting hers on the pillow beside my head. I hate to say she asked for it, but really, she had no reason to give him attitude in the first place. All things considered, it went well. They have sort of both forgiven me now. They cuddled in for the night (or froze, as I turned the thermostat way down). This morning they were both still under the covers, with their little heads on the pillow beside mine. All is well.
Well, on that note, it is time to get busy, especially if I am going to get 2 chapters written today. Until next week, have a good one.
