I had plans. I had good plans. I had plans to host several authors over the summer. Some I have shared, others I didn’t get scheduled. It’s not their fault – they sent me their stuff. I’ve been neck-deep in getting things ready for my release. If they agree, I will share with you in the future but I’ll have to get with each of them individually to reschedule.
I had plans to work on more posts on writing – I have several in my drafts folder, that I wanted to fine tune. Those will have to wait until a later date. I had plans to start a series when college classes began –again, that was put on hold.
What I have been doing is working on my book. I’ve been proofreading, editing, revising, looking at proofs, choosing a cover, going back over proofs – all those little details that nobody but the publisher and the author care about unless an error appears in a book and readers go ballistic.
I have a confession, I am a terrible typist. Contrary to what y’all may think, I do know how to spell. Typing is another matter entirely. My fingers have a habit of getting out-of-order. I don’t watch the keys when I type, and if not for spellcheck – well, let’s not go there.
The point is, I haven’t been laying in the sun soaking up the rays as my summer series picture might have you believe. This has been one of the most stressful times of my life! I have a retirement party coming up, my sister’s wedding, then the Kentuckiana event – my weekends are full!
For now however, I have books on order! YES! They will be available for pre-order soon! I will have my cover reveal on September 4th and I have a few bloggers that are helping me to share the news!
I am going to order a pizza for dinner, set up an appointment for a manicure and kick back and enjoy a date night with my hubby man!
Write on my friends, write on!
