I need all the coffee I can get! Because…MONDAY. The start of a new week and the continuation of a new project. Sort of. I finished the final round of fixes on DOUBLE CROSS and it is now “cemented” on Amazon. No more changes until after it goes live on July 1st. I’ve had 15 preorders which is kind of cool but I’d really love to have a bunch more. Yeah, yeah, that means advertising and I so totally suck at that. EDIT: B.E. says I need a link to the pre-order. Like d’uh! So here! DOUBLE CROSS PRE-ORDER LINK! 😉
The weekend was…busy and lazy at the same time. Saturday was OKRWA. We had an interesting program on conflict. I’m doing next month’s program on igniting creativity. I’m going to use flash fiction models, words prompts, photos, and song videos. It should be fun. Sunday, Lawyer Guy and I both slept late. I mean…like until after ten. I NEVER do that but I felt better for doing it. I obviously was worn down and tired.
Still reading Roxanne St. Clair’s BAREFOOT WITH A BODYGUARD, the first in her Barefoot Bay spin-off series that takes her back to her romantic suspense roots. I wish I could just sit down and read it but with so much else going on I can only read in snatches. Loving those snatches, though!
Despite being tired, I managed enough creativity to do a 500 word flash fiction challenge based on Hardy’s story from the Nightriders. I think his story is going to get bumped to the front of the line even though the Russian’s story is teasing me. As is Kin’s story, which is book 2 in the Hard Target series. First though…
I have until August 17th to turn in the full MS of RDR#3, which has the working title of FOR THE LOVE OF A COWGIRL. We’ll see how long that one lasts. 😆 I put it on the back burner while dealing with DOUBLE CROSS. I’d like to have it ready to go by July 17th. Then I can work on THE DEVIL’S CUT. It is so freaking rough and is only about 2/3 finished. I really think I filled my publishing plate way too full but that’s okay. I’ll get it done because…Well, because I will.
So anyway, 2K words each day until RDR#3 is roughed out. I’ve told myself that I get 30 minutes first thing in the morning to check email and do internet stuffs and then I have to shut it down until I write at least 2K words. Then I can play for an hour. Then I’d like to get 2k more written. 4K words a day isn’t that hard. If I’d stay away from the net. LOLOL And if I didn’t have to things like laundry, fix dinner, fun errands–and those aren’t “fun” errands. It’s groceries, cleaning, stuff like that there.
And no. I am NOT complaining! Tired, yes. Complaining, no! I love being a writer so when I whine, just slap me back into reality, ‘kay? 😆 Cuz, like, y’all do want more books, right? (And there’s that needy brat of a writer coming out… 😉 )
Okay, to work! But y’all tell me all the fun you had over the weekend so I can come back in a couple of hours and see! Fresh cup of coffee and then 2K words, here I come!!!
