Do you know how hard it is to get everything done for school, travel, cleaning, and children, while at the same time needing to finish reading a book? Sharon Shinn kills me! Oh but I love her books. Finally started reading Troubled Waters. Yum. You should definitely have a look. Loving it.
Okay, so yeah, finished grading and turned them in, cleaned bathrooms and other assorted places in the house, got laundry in the washer, still need to pack, which is dependent upon the clothes in the washer, and also I have to shower. But I think the house is clean. Also making some travel cds for the truck. Odd mix. But then, I’m odd.
I also had an epiphany on a section of the WIP that was giving me trouble. I’m very pleased about it. I realized some things which do a lot of work in the book. From character development, plot twisting, world building, and creating tension. Lovely.
I still have not had a chance to update the website with the initial chapters of Blood Winter. I plan to asap, hopefully before I leave, but the way things are going . . .
I need to ask you all to go and give me a shout out for my books on your places of social media, to your friends, at bookstores, and anywhere you can think of. I’d like to see this book do well and the best way is word of mouth. So please, whatever you can do, I would be grateful. I still haven’t heard of any sightings yet. That surprises me. Usually people start seeing books in advance of the release date. Also, reviews on Amazon and BN would be awesome. Even bad ones. (has a small moment of hyperventilation that you might not like the book). But it really helps with the way that these online venues promote a book to readers, so if you can, I’d love you.
And there, that’s it. All begging over. Whew.
Now to go fold clothes and pack the suitcase. Let’s hope the dog doesn’t vomit on the way out there.
