I received an email from my publisher this morning with my final final edits to Dying Embers. That means, I have one more round and it’s done and ready for print. YAY! She also said that she wanted to bump up my release date. Now, it’s looking like Dying Embers will be released in December. I’m so excited! Time to get to work.
Secondly, this week I started a new novel series. It’s untitled as of yet–the first book and the series–but I can’t wait until it’s all finished. This is probably one of my favorite main characters ever. She’s stubborn, she’s manipulative, she drinks a lot and she even does drugs on occasion. Emma’s a crazy one that doesn’t listen to a lot of people. She has a plan, and she wants to see it through.
We’re still working on the edits to Across Worlds: Collision. Our beta’s just got chapter seventeen today, and we’re working on chapters six and seven. It’ll get done eventually and be ready probably to come out late next spring. It’s been an absolutely pleasure to work with my co-writer. We’re even talking about writing another book together as soon as the fall semester starts up.
I sort of hosted my first virtual write-in tonight. It was a total success. We went for about two and a half hours, writing and chatting every thirty minutes during our check in. Everyone did great and fantastic. I’m so proud and impressed with all the women that participated. We’ll be doing it again next week on Thursday, so if you want to join, add me as a friend on facebook and PM me to tell me. I’ll gladly add you into the group. If you can’t join right away on Thursday night, just come and go. We all have lives and it does get busy.
Lastly, I will be gone for fifteen days starting on Tuesday. I’ll only have internet for the first week! Talk about scary. So if I’m not around much, that’s why. I’m flying out east to visit my mother and a few friends (along with my co-writer), and then I’m flying out west to visit my brand new godsons. Yes! I am a godmother. Asa and Aiden were born on July 18th around 7pm, and just got home from the hospital yesterday. They were five weeks early, so that’s a great sign! I can’t wait to meet my precious babies.
So that’s a quick update as to where I am right now.
