New Projects and a Release Date!

There’s something about summer. I always feel more motivated to get things done. So what did I do? I decided I was going to write a space opera novella in under two months. Why? Because that’s the submission call deadline, of course J I’m actually off to a good start. I’ve written 2k and it has to be between 25-30k. As long as I finish the first draft in June, that gives me all of July to do rewrites (minimum of four solid rewrites) and the first week of August to clean up format and write the synopsis. Easy peasy, right? It’s okay for you to laugh, I am too.

In other news…I have a tentative release date for Ink. It’s going to be March 1st 2010! Yay! I’m so excited. I can’t wait to see the cover (yes, I know it’s going to probably be about six months before I have a cover, but I’m still waiting anxiously).

Oh, and I got my e-reader. Thank you, very much sweetheart! I adore it! I’ve already downloaded and read three of the e-books I’ve been putting off because I didn’t want to be tied to a computer to read them.

All in all, good times. Now back to the WIP. I left my hero and heroine in a scene they probably want out of :)

Summer Vacation

It's summer, which means my writing will slow to a crawl because my days will be filled with trips to the park, and, if it’s warm enough, trips to the pool. Not that I mind. I love trips to the park and pool. After all, I have to find a way to keep these boys worn out. If not they turn on each other and I hear, “Mom, so and so did this.”

“Well he did that.”

“Only because he did the other thing.”

On the writing front, I don’t have a release date yet, but my editor hopes to have one really soon. As it is, she’s estimating 1stQ 2010. Seems like an eternity, doesn’t it? I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait when it’s all said and done.
