The month is almost over, which means there is only a few more days until the release of ‘Teryka Rose’. We are close to the release of the audiobook for ‘Hunter’s Challenge’ as well. At the same time, I expect to be finished writing, if not typing the rough manuscript for ‘Tyndal’… … no, I still haven’t thought of a date for the release on this one. Tomorrow, I expect to see some of the things I ordered for ‘Igniting the Soul’ and ‘Kalicon’. Are we all getting excited for these two events? Each day brings us closer and it seems like it is coming at us fast.
This week the company I work with, outside of my writing, had the safety papers audited. I have to admit, it was funny to see the auditor trying to work around Thena and Tath, who both decided to tell him how bad they had it here. No attention, yada yada. It got bad enough that I had to bring out the space guns. To be fair, the guy was good about it, he petted them for a few moments before putting them down, but that only made things worse for him. I actually think he was relieved when I shot a couple of those rubber rings at Thena, usually all it takes is starting up the little motor in it and she is gone. This time it took 3 shots. Tath looked at her as if to say… “I could have told you she wouldn’t hold back.” Thena returned about 2 minutes later to resume her bugging. By then the inspector was finished, something he wouldn’t have been able to do if I wasn’t so insistent about keeping those papers in alpha numerical order. Yes, I can be like that. Anyway, he left happy, with a few pens from the Elven Chronicles for his wife. I thought that rather sweet that he wanted them because she loves the words of bonding.
This upcoming week is going to be busy. Not only do I intend to finish off ‘Tyndal’, which means 5-6 chapters more to write, but typing all of it, and then reworking the rough manuscript, which will take a couple of days because it is a short one. I also need to do a major shopping trip, we all know what that means, Costco. Rumour has it that little bro is going to drive out from the B.C. interior and show up on Saturday, with the idea of arriving in time for bro #2 and his wife’s 50th wedding anniversary celebration. He is going to be beat. I need to dust the house and a few other things like that. I would say nothing really drastic, but it still needs to be done. When he leaves, I will begin writing ‘Standing in the Light’, which will be another novella. Hoping to be finished that one for the end of August or around that time. Then, I am going to rest up for the two signings, which means reading books and generally mucking about.
Well, all things considered, I think I have talked long enough. It is time for me to tend to other matters. So, until next week, have a great summer and enjoy the heat as you can. Hopefully some of the scorching temperatures I have been hearing about will tame down to become something more bearable.
