If you follow my personal website, you know that I have proposed taking a small part of the holiday today to do work, specifically, to gather tax documents and begin the process of taming the paper beast before it becomes January 1st and a mad scramble. I intend to do just that. In fact, between editing and tax papers, working on some plot things and doing some small batch canning, I will be working all day.
Happy Labor Day.
For me, there is seldom unspent time to idle, and that’s how I prefer it. I’m not sure I’d know what to do with the excess anyway. I’m twitchy to sit still. It takes a monumental program or movie to hold my attention to conclusion, and mostly, I just don’t bother. My brain is unappeased. So, what’s a girl to do? Work. (or read, and I plan to do that today too. I picked up some great choices in Savannah at Authors After Dark.)
I have multiple projects running now though, which is the norm. I’m doing final edits for another author, which have become full edits (ie: 3 – 4 passes), I have my competition piece that I’m working on plotting and initial drafting, I signed on to do an anthology with some AMAZING authors that needs to be written as soon as I can finish putting the bible together for it and put up the sticky wall, and…oh yeah, over the weekend, I connected with Wickedly Innocent Promotions to get my street team up and off the ground. (I’ll post the link at the bottom here for anyone interested in coming along for the adventure.)
2016 has been a roller coaster of unforeseeable turns, and it’s not over yet. I still have 3 more signings to go; Read Between the Vines at Snus Hill Winery – a benefit for the Woodward Library Foundation, Penned Con in St. Louis which is a charity Con for Action for Autism, and Glass City Author Event in Toledo…which is shaping up to be epic on a whole new scale. Kimberly Beale has done an amazing job and I’m thrilled to be a part of the madness.
It’s no wonder I can’t find the top of the desk in my office these days. 🙂 And, I wouldn’t have it any other way. If I’ll be seeing you at any one of these upcoming events, shout out, stop by and say hello – I’ll be the one running 220 with my hair on fire. Oh, and before all that happens, I almost forgot, I’ll be part of the Book Nymph’s end of summer party, I’ll be author speed dating with blogger Tierny James for Penned, I’m part of the author takeovers for Glass City, I have a character interview going up for the Matanzas Moon Bookiversary, and I have a short story anthology coming out in the next week or so…I’ll sleep when it’s over, right?
ANNNNDDDD, don’t forget – there are still a few days to vote in the SIBA awards thing where Viva Zapata & the Magic 8-Ball is nominated along with a few of my fellow authors here…the fun never ends.
Soooo….now interested in the adventure and want to check out being on my street team? Start HERE.
