Ladies and Gentlemen…I wrote the lovely words, “The End” on the final chapter of the final book in the Veil Series. Veiled Heart Revealed is in the hands of my editor.
What does this mean? Well, I’ll tell ya. It means, barring any surprise hurdles, I will have print copies of Veiled Hearts Revealed AND Breathe Me to Life at Penned Con! Woot Woot! I will need to discuss with my publisher when the release of ebooks will be. So, I’m not going to give you a date on that….yet.
The back cover for Breathe Me to Life is in the process of being created, and the blurb for Veiled Hearts Revealed has been sent in to be placed on the back of its cover. Things are falling into place…yay.
What am I doing while I wait for my edits you ask. I’m doing some research for my next short story. I’m researching shifter species that don’t get enough love and attention. What’s your favorite little known/talked about shifter?
Until next week…Happy Reading!
FABULOUSNESS. Total fabulousness.
You may or may not be aware of my Rhino philosophy, business model, or life plan…but I’m a Rhino. Sometimes, Rhinos need to plop into a mud puddle and just do the downtime. Late last week, I and my mini-unihorns headed south for some R&R and dang it if wasn’t perfection. Sweet perfection with a double scotch on top.
Ever notice that you think you know how worn you are…but once you’re back, it’s like…I had no idea how out of psycho I really was? Or realizing how crappy you feel, but only after you feel better? I’m not going to front like I’m magically batting 1000 again, cuz Goddess knows I could use more of the mud puddle…but I’m better. And, I’m coming into clearer focus on what I need to do to hit the marks.
With so many looming deadlines, I couldn’t see how to do anything but keep pushing forward. Except, pushing forward was just bungling the gears and making me edgy. Pause the gas pedal and pull back. Breaks are good.
I literally slept in a lake with my head through an inner tube to keep it above water. Best nap I’ve had in ages. Not to mention time with the extended family was enlightening and pleasant. No pressure, no phones…just food and chill. All shop talk was dropped at the main road and left for the return trip.
Gods, I can’t wait to go again.
Tomorrow starts 3 weeks in a row of releases, so get your one-click fingers ready.
Twelve (Flip-Flopped Fairy Tales) hits the 14th
Rogue (Una-Mor Trilogy book 1) hits the 21st
Black Guard (Una-Mor Trilogy book 2) hits the 28th.
I’ll have an update on the other dates next week…There are at least 3 in September, but there’s a chance there will be more.
🙂 Just depends on how therapeutic that mud really was.
