Welcome to week 15 of the MFRW blog hop.
This week’s prompt: How I celebrate completing my manuscript.
How appropriate since I just completed Break Line!
I have different levels of celebration for completion. For instance, I finished Faere Warrior: Passion’s Price and celebrated by doing an online giveaway party, going out to lunch with author friends, and of course the happy dance at home. Faere Warrior was accepted by a small house publisher along with Faere Guardian, Faere Mage, and Realm Wars with the stipulation that I do a prequal. I’m still working on the prequal –Rift, but the series has developed a lot more since that manuscript and I’ve learned a great deal since then. I didn’t meet the deadline for submitting Rift, so the offer was withdrawn. My own fault there.
Releasing Book One for Realm Wars series, Rift is written in my planner – in ink! I’m hoping to finish revisions on Faere Warrior by the end of the year as well.
I completed Break Line and am going today to celebrate with a luncheon with a fellow author, the instigator of the anthology as a matter of fact! AND, to celebrate:
With Red Wine & Roses, I didn’t celebrate until I received my box of books from Createspace. I made a steak dinner and Red Wine Chocolate Cake for dessert.
After completing Roxy Sings the Blues, I rewarded myself with a mani-pedi, and a fresh haircut to tame the short growth into a manageable coif! This one was a huge accomplishment for me after going through cancer treatment. I needed the pampering!
I will have Valkyrie’s Curse: The Awakening completed in May. What do you think I should do to celebrate? I’m trying to get away from food as a reward, although . . . I cook at home most of the time and we rarely go out to restaurants. Maybe something in addition to a night out?

Write on my friends, write on!
manicures and pedicures seem to be among the top ways to celebrate. Along with food and drink of course. Best wishes for your newest work.
Great Ways to celebrate! Steak dinner sounds great!
Congrats on completing your novel!!! The mani/pedi is a nice treat. Or a facial if you’re into that sort of thing, a nice massage. All depends on what you are a fan of. I think the manis are nice, you get a little hand massage with them which every writer needs from time to time!
Love the red wine cake!
