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 I didn’t meet the deadline for submitting Rift, so the offer was withdrawn.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?
