Still Alive!

Yes, I’m still here, but busy. One week ago tonight my lovely editor sent me the final edit on Let’s Dish – and it was due before the end of the week. I just about panicked, but then realized it wasn’t too bad – just a few minor nit-picks.  So now onto the line editor, and after that it’s in the can. Hope to share some excerpts very soon, and maybe give away a few Advance Reader Copies!

Another Time Around is my next project. I wrote it for NaNo 2004, and my editor is interested in me making a few changes to it. Unfortunately, I have learned so much during the edit on Let’s Dish that I am making myself crazy over ATA. I need to get over myself, forge ahead, and just make the changes. Editing can come later. Right?

On a personal note, my oldest took part in the State Special Olympics Bowling Tournament this weekend – another reason I haven’t been blogging. Or writing. He bowled in three events -individual, pairs and team – and won a gold metal in all three! But that wasn’t the best part. He has autism and I tease that he has two emotions: bored to death and pissed off. That’s not strictly true, but those seem to be the primary ones we see. But when I went to get him from the dance last night, he was dancing and having a great time! Who is this kid? Not my stoic son. He was having a terrific time, and it was so good to see.

Okay, back to work. Or back to watching Food Network. Whatever.

  1. Congratulations to your son! Three golds, that’s terrific.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your excerpts – you must be getting excited as release day approaches.

  2. Yes, definitely getting jazzed. Hope to have a cover to share soon, too!
