Hello all! It’s been a while!…Again!
Just wanted to share a quick update, as well as invite you to an event happening this Saturday, August 14th. 😀
I had my little Baby Gremlin back in November, and am only now actually getting back into doing anything other than snuggling him and just enjoying my first months of motherhood. Lol, I also spend a great deal of time wondering in confusion where everything is in the messy, disorganized chaos that is my home right now, and desperately stealing naps whenever I can get them.
I’ve honestly never been happier in my life. ❤
Book 3 in my Dual Realms series is still in the works. Lol, you would think I’d have finished it during quarantine.
And you’d be toooooooootally wrong in believing I would’ve been all responsible like that, lol.
Nope. I have never procrastinated so hard in my life. If there were medals handed out for this kind of thing, I would get the gold, hands down. Nay – they would create a platinum medal, decide that wasn’t enough, and then invent a diamond medal, just for me. There is no competition for how focused I was on absolutely nothing.
For some odd reason, being on bed rest at the end of my pregnancy, and then still being on bed rest right after I had the universe’s cutest gremlin, both motivated me to want to re-shingle my roof (because when you’re told you’re not allowed to move you suddenly want nothing else) and de-motivated me to the point where I just Netflix’d (is that a word? It should be.) myself into oblivion.
I mean, I got all caught up on a bunch of shows and anime in my queue, sure, but Book 3 didn’t get a lot of love until recently, when Baby Gremlin started taking more structured naps.
Ordinarily, I’d give myself a narrower deadline – like, “yeah, I’ll definitely have Book 3 ready for editing by September. No problem!” However, Baby Gremlin says, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA….**cute baby coo completely at odds with the villainous undertones of this statement** Your editor will hear from you sometime around November!”
My characters weep, and consider taking up a hobby while they wait.
I sigh, unsurprised as Baby Gremlin proceeds to run amuck in my office.
My characters note the ensuing, aforementioned “amuck” with shock and awe, and contemplate a change in profession.
See you in November, dear editor.
Lol, I’m making a valiant attempt at finishing Book 3 in the near future. However, I’ll be giving myself a good deal of grace on the timeframe. We’ll just say somewhere between September and November I’ll be able to email my editor. By around the holidays, Book 3 may actually be ready to go! Woo-hoo!
On the marketing front there is small headway being made though! Being in an odd kind of quarantine limbo still, where some events are cancelled and others are not, I’m actually signed up to attend the Mid-Ohio Indie Author Book Expo, this Saturday! 😀
The husband and in-laws will be having fun with Baby Gremlin while I’m there.
If you happen to be in the area, come check it out! 😀
Other than that, I’m planning on possibly some movie or tv show reviews in the coming weeks and months, for fun. Maybe some snippets of Book 3, leading up to its release. We shall see what Baby Gremlin allows, lol.
Speaking of, Baby Gremlin is currently napping right now, so I’m going to seize my opportunity to write for the day! Wish me luck! 😀
Until next time, Take Care and Happy Writing! 😀
