Starting a new job doesn’t come without sacrifice and changes. I mentioned that a couple of weeks ago.
My writing gig is taking a definite hit from the new day job. I’ve got a crazy 2 and 5, 5 and 2 schedule. It’s going to take some time to get used to it. Because of this schedule, I’ve had to cancel my next three book signings. I’m not sure about the one in October 2018 because I haven’t figured that far ahead. Being the new kid, days off are out of the question. It’s a possibility to trade shifts, but it’s more trouble than it’s worth. I’ve decided to deal with it the best I can.
The up side to my schedule is that I’ll get as many days off as I work. Which breaks down to half of the month working, the other half writing. Put that one on the plus side.
I just got back Save the Last Dance from my publisher. She was giving it her final read, which is also the final edit. I’ll be spending the weekend going over revisions. The sooner I’m done and can get it back to her, the sooner I can get it released. Originally, I was hoping for a December release date. Now, I’m pushing for Thanksgiving week. Nothing is definite yet, but that’s my goal.
After that, it’s back to one of my new stories. With my publisher’s okay, I’d like to submit it for a boxed set. But before any of that happens, I have to finish it. Back to the writing cave.
Till next week,
