It’s Monday. It’s July 1st. It’s…damn. Where’s the summer going? In two weeks, I’ll be leaving for RWA Nationals in Atlanta. In six weeks, I hope to release BLACK MAGIC WOMAN. In two months (or a little longer) I hope to release SEASON OF THE WITCH in all formats and trade paperback. Yeah, I need to get to work. Especially since I also plan to release a mystery noir short between now and then (already written–waiting on the cover), and work on the new Hard Target series, with the first’s title DOUBLE TAKE. If you’ll glance over at the word widgets, I am making progress!
In other news, I guess I’m now an award-winning author. I received news over the weekend that BLOOD MOON won first place in the Short Paranormal category of the International Digital Awards. BAD MOON won second in the same category. HUNTER’S MOON won second in the Paranormal Novel category. (Not sure who won 1st–I haven’t seen the whole list.) And BEST LAID PLANS placed fifth in the Short Contemporary category.
This makes me want to work on the full-length versions of Moonstruck now. 😆 Like I have time at the moment 🙄 The rest of the weekend was sort of a blur. It was ugly hot and I’m waiting on library books so I can continue my read of Allison Brennan’s books. In the meantime, I’m reading the anthology, LOVE IS MURDER. There’s some interesting stories in it.
I’m also guest blogging over at B.E. Sanderson’s The Unpublished Writers’ Guide. Stop by and see what I have to say about lists and awards. I’ll be giving away an Amazon gift card, too!
For all my Canadian friends, Happy Canada Day!!! Those of us down here will celebrate our day on the 4th. So…what everyone else? Who did something really fun this weekend?
