Monday and I’ve got the formatting blues… C’mon, y’all, sing along with me. 🙄 My brain, it is Swiss cheese. And then it gets paranoid and then it remembers
shitstuff and I start over… Anyway, the Nightriders have all been updated in two versions–Amazon and for wide distribution that has no mention of Amazon or links there. They’ve all been uploaded to the ‘zon. I’m hoping to get an update notice on my Content and Devices page when they all go through. I’m not sure what exactly triggers an update. If worse comes to worst case, for those of you who own the books, you might need to delete them from your Kindle (NOT from your library! JUST your Kindle) and then download them again. That should give you the latest version. The quick way to tell is to go to the back of the book and check my book list. It’ll be up-to-date with BLOOD & FIRE and CRASH & BURN having buy links. Anyway. That got done. And NIGHT FIRE is formatted for print. I’m waiting on the print cover before I can get it fully uploaded and done. Tomorrow, I’ll get NIGHT FALL formatted for print and then I’ll start uploading all of them to D2D for wide distribution. I’ll keep y’all in the loop on when they go live.
In other news, my RWA chapter meeting was Saturday. We had a great program on “Writing the Emotional Rollercoaster.” According to the author and editor presenting the program, after we did a little writing exercise, I’m doing something right, at least in the scene I shared, which was from NIGHT SHIFT. (The scene where Easy hides in the kids’ playfort,) Anyway. It was fun to see the gals and emerse in writing stuffs that didn’t have a deadline, or entail formatting. 😂
My Cards are sporadic in their wins but they are staying at the top (or near it) of their division so that’s a yay! College football starts up here at the end of the month. Fall can’t be too far behind. I’m totally on board for cooler temps!
LIVE PD keeps showing scenes close to home. Seriously! This weekend, they showed a “previously happened in Oklahoma” segment where a guy ran from a traffic stop, roared up the street I’m on like 10 times a week, and crashed out at an intersction less than a mile from my house, and one that I also drive through constantly. The reason he ran? Because four bad dudes driving an SUV that looked JUST LIKE THE OHP VEHICLE INCLUDING DOOR DECALS, FLASHING EMERGENCY LIGHTS, and SIREN!!!! had tried to rob him and he thought they were chasing him. 🤯 Yes, that is my head exploding. I can’t make this stuff up! And if I did, readers would ding me for being so over the top.
I’m back in a bit of a reading slump. The next book I really want releases in a week. I’ll do a reread of the series, but there’s only 3 full-length books and a novella. I’ll have them listened to before it drops. I’m trying to listen to Maria Vale’s THE LAST WOLF. Some reviewers have compared this book to Anne Bishop’s The Others series, which I adore. This book? The beginning is really slow and I’m have trouble getting into it. It’s through Audible Escape so I’m not out anything if I don’t finish it. I’m going to give it about an hour of listening time and then I’ll either be into it or it’ll be a DNF.
That’s what’s up in my world. What exciting (or not) things did you do this weekend?
