The day after the weekend

As I mentioned the other day, The Vampire Oracle: Volume Four is now available in print! Yay. I'm so very excited about it, but it won't feel quite real until I have it in my own hands. It's exactly what happened when the first print anthology I was in was released.

So, I updated my website over the weekend and will do some more updates later today or tomorrow. I'll be adding another FREE read as soon as my July/August newsletter is ready to go out. I'm running a little behind, but will aim to have it out by the end of this week.

The other night, I crossed the 20k mark in my M-YA WIP. This week I'd like to add another 20k too. I'll see what I can do, but because I'm so into the story and the character's really speaking to me, I hope that it's not a hard goal to reach. This is my daughter's last week of school before she has a two-week break. So, aiming to finish a first draft during her first week of holidays is a little ambitious. Still, I'm going to try it. ;)

Actually, last night I finally grabbed a July calendar and marked what I'd like to achieve this month. There are three main goals - finish the first draft of M-YA, do the second draft of DT (which is a Sci-Fi), and write the first draft of BOUNDLESS (the last book in the trilogy that starts with FAITHLESS). See, not much there. ;) Lol. Of course, reading is always included in my weekly goals.

Speaking of reading, my gosh, I started reading I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER on Saturday night and got so stuck into it that I've only got about 60 pages to go. I'm hoping to finish it today because it's absolutely fantastic! Honestly, I'm loving it.

Okay, after another awesome weekend, it's time to start the new week...

It's amazing how much the little ones slow us down with writing. I have one more week of summer camp for the boys and I plan on digging in deep and trying to finish my WIP too. I wish you luck!

Hey Ericka! I know, and thanks. I'm certainly going to need the luck. Lol.
