This blog post is long overdue. I'll start it off like I always do. (the rhyme was totally unintentional)
Okay, so hello everyone!
I haven't updated in a few months - completely going against my promise of updating at least once or twice a month, but I've been very busy! For starters, back in May, I pitched a novel to Geoffrey Knight of Wilde City Press and it was accepted! So my novel Red Rose (Blood) of the Deadly Rose series will be released in about 9 days. Woot, woot!
The last couple of weeks I've been working on the editing and other processes which come with publication. So that's been an endeavor, luckily I was given an amazing editor (shout out to Val!) so it's not as cringe-inducing as it probably would have been, otherwise.
I've also been working on another two novels which are almost done and I hope to submit them to Dreamspinner Press and Harmony Ink Press, respectively. So here's hoping that goes well.
In total, I have about 2-3 novels/novellas to be completed before the end of this year (not counting the ones previously mentioned) so it's going to be very hectic. I don't mind because writing is my passion and if I don't get these stories out, my imaginary friends will kill me...or I'll be committed. I'm not sure which one, yet, the jury's still out on that one.
Another part of my crazy year are the two side-projects I've been working on for awhile. I can't talk too much about them right now, but I will in due time. I apologize, but I feel like it's bad luck to mention them now, something about counting chickens before they hatch, or whatever. Just know the projects are cool to the tenth power.
The last thing I can talk about is my work AKA my real life, boring job...of misery. So for those of you who don't know, I deliver newspapers during the night. Which means at any point in time from 12 AM to 6 AM, I'll go to a warehouse, collect the papers, put them in plastic bags, and then spend the next 1 1/2 hours zooming down different streets throwing them to whomever bought them.
It probably wouldn't be so bad if my fiance and I (we work together, luckily, so anxiety is reduced by 75%) weren't the youngest people there and 90% of the people who worked there didn't act like they were still in high school. I'd probably write some of our experiences down as stories but most people probably wouldn't believe they were real >.>
So I guess that's all for now. I'll be updating this more frequently as my work load lessens.
As always, lots of love and applesauce! <3
