Almost, My Pretties

After more family drama this week, Ravaged went to my formatter Saturday afternoon.

Whew! One thing off my plate for a day or three, at least until I need to review the e-book files before uploading them to retailer sites. The paperback will follow shortly after the e-book for those who are into that format.

Look for an announcement soon!

It's been ten months since my last release, so I'm suffering from a mixture of excitement and nerves.

Add in a glitch with my domain/hosting company Friday night, and I didn't get much sleep. Despite my panic and my domain not pointing to my website for eleven hours, everything's been fixed.

So I'm going to take two breaks today. First, listen to the Texans game (thank Goddess for internet radio!), then I'll write for a bit before watching the new Star Trek: Discovery.

Happy Mabon/Rosh Hashanah/Islamic New Year, everyone!

Commas and Articles and Prepositions! Oh, My!

I'm still waiting on getting Ravaged back from my beta reader, so I started editing Sacrificed in between writing sessions on A Modicum of Truth this morning. After all these years, I still have a tendency to leave out commas, articles, and prepositions when I write. LOL

Once Ravaged goes off to the formatter, I'll start posting some teaser chapters of the new Justice book.

The pile of paperbacks I need to review is down to two. Everything except for Amish, Vamps & Thieves and Blood Sacrifice is now available at most retailers. And if you want one of my paperbacks and want to help your local independent bookstore, have your bookseller order the book from their distributor.

I'm so excited about getting caught up on old projects and releasing new books!

Status Update - September 2017

I sent the edited manuscript for Ravaged to my beta reader yesterday morning. Once I get their notes back, I'll do one more editing pass. Then proofreading before the files go to my formatter. Yay!

I didn't get as far as I planned on A Modicum of Truth in August, but on the plus side, the paperbacks and wide e-book distribution for Zombie Wedding, Amish, Vamps & Thieves, and Blood Sacrifice should be available by the end of the month.

That still gives me time to finish and publish A Modicum of Truth before Halloween.

The only weirdness is not resuming work on Four Soccer Moms. Genius Kid got his drivers license before school started and is thoroughly enjoying his independence. On one hand, it saves me a lot of time. On the other, it almost feels like I'm living with a roommate instead of my child.

As Darling Husband pointed out, I got a lot done this summer even though it doesn't feel like it to me. Now that it's Pumpkin Spice season, it's time to buckle down and finish these other books!
