New template & a new pile o' books!

There's an awesome mix of books in my April pile, that's for sure. As you can see, I've already finished one, and am currently reading LEX TRENT VERSUS THE GODS.

So, what do you think of my new blog template?

I've been wanting to change/update it for a while now but kept putting it off. Then yesterday, while I was browsing for a new design, I found this one and decided to try it out. Just wanted to see what it would look like... and, um, I ended up with this. Loved it!

I actually spent a big chunk of yesterday updating the sidebar and stuff. Still haven't figured out how to add pages, though. I'd like to add a WIP page, but not sure how yet. I should do a search to find out how. I did look at a few instructions already but they sounded a little confusing. lol

Anyway. Another week, another set of goals. Of course, I've changed my goals for the next few weeks. Instead of focusing on starting a new first draft and then having to put it aside during Easter, I've decided to leave the first draft writing until after my daughter's school holidays are over. If I start my Sci-Fi story mid-April, I can then get started on the book that follows straight after that one. Since they're both going to take place at the same time, yet seen from the POV of different characters in different places, that'll probably be a cool thing.

What am I going to do this week, then? Well, for the rest of the month, I'm going to keep taking notes for the book that's coming together inside my head at the moment, write a few more guest blog entries, keep reading my review books, and I'd also like to make a list of projects that need to be revised. Two of those projects are already-contracted novels, so I'd like to allocate a time for second and third drafts. Preferrably way before their due dates. :)

But for now, I've got some more brainstorming to do. I also want to put together a little excerpt PDF for my eBooks. A little sampler. Speaking of which, if you enjoy urban fantasy like I do, you might want to check out this PDF: Spring 2010 Urban Fantasy Sampler. Thanks to The Book Smugglers and the SciFiGuy, I got my hands on it.

Well, have an awesome day!

Yay, I got THE DEAD-TOSSED WAVES today, too! And found my FOREST quote on the back of the press release - I am rather smug about that ;-)
