Reporting In Between Contests

Monday, December 14th, 2009

This is finals week at my son’s school, and I find I am riding herd on his studying, in between trying to write and doing absolutely no holiday shopping whatsoever. He thought his book report was due Wednesday but, it turns out, it’s not. It’s due tomorrow.

Anyway, I’m finishing up this side project that came up, after which I will have two weeks (hopefully) to do what will probably be a massive rewrite of My Beloved Assassin because, um, I want to be prepared when I get the editorial letter.

Tomorrow is my mother’s birthday so there will be a party. I’m making garlic bread. So that’s what’s up with me. I rarely think about holiday shopping until after her birthday and that’s why I’m never, ever prepared.

How’s about you guys?

Off to post the next contest! Check it out.


One of Those Days

Can I start with a Sigh?

Today I finally transferred my paper copyedits for My Forbidden Desire to my document. It took just about all day, but it needed to be done so I’ll have an eARC to send when the time comes.

I also finished my RITA reading. Now I’m going to jump back into my TBR.

Can I also say I am tired of this sucky economy? I’ve had enough of stressing. Seriously. My sister, who works at Home Depot Express, is losing her job in April as they shut down a fairly large number of stores. She has time to get her ducks in a row and figure out what to do, but the uncertainty is no fun. Sigh.

I’m starting to get a bit anxious about Scandal. Reviews are stressful, too, but considering the official release date is February 3, I haven’t seen all that many and there are none at Amazon. Like I don’t have enough to get me all worked up. Sigh.

But, off to bed with another book. Except, you know, I’m getting anxious about the writing. It may be time to start work on The Dark Elf Project.
