DASH is done!

That's right.
I spent the last two days reading the PDF proof and emailed the small list of corrections to my editor yesterday. Yay.
Then this morning, I got a surprise in my Inbox: the final copies! OMG. I'm SO excited. I'm really looking forward to this book's release in May. Mark your calendars, because it will be released on the 26th of May. :)
In case you missed the blurb, here it is:
She escaped the arena of death, but trusting him might be the death of her.
Recast, Book 4
Taylor may be the Clash Arena’s most dominant—and only—female gladiator, but today she just can’t catch a break. After winning yet another brutal fight, with the arena inexplicably falling down around her ears, she jumps at the chance to escape the prison of her subterranean pit.
Instead, she finds herself knocked unconscious more times than she can count, and pursued over the edge of a sea cliff by an AI enforcer she can’t shake off her heels.
Walsh has been living a double life, masquerading as a tyrant’s enforcer while hiding his true agenda. When the despicable arena falls, there’s only one thing on his mind—saving the savage blonde who doesn’t trust him as far as she can throw him. Which is a considerable distance.
Once he convinces her he’s not out to kill her but help her survive, they form an uneasy alliance. But Taylor senses he’s keeping a secret, not just from her, but about her. And the truth will show them exactly what it is to be human.
Warning: This book contains some girl-on-girl action, a kick-ass gladiator who takes no crap, an AI who puts it all on the line, a band of misfits who aren’t as merry as they seem, cute tadpoles with sharp teeth, and grip-you-by-the-hair kisses. Strap in, interstellar turbulence is a bitch.
Well, what do you think of the blurb? This is the fourth book in my SFR RECAST series and features two characters that made brief appearances in CLASH. Actually, Taylor is even in SHIVER. And you might recognise several other couples from previous books. ;) I also wrote it during NaNoWriMo 2013.
*takes a deep breath*
Now that the DASH editing process is done, I'm going to take the rest of the week off. Then, I can get stuck into finishing the two Sierra Fox spin-off novels I've been working on. And after that, I'll be writing some new stories. But I don't want to get ahead of myself, or get overwhelmed by my goals. LOL.
I haven't been feeling 100% during the last week. I mentioned it before, but it seems to have chased me into this week. I think it's because the weather is so crazy right now. I usually feel crappy when the season changes from winter to spring, and summer to autumn. But this year, the weather is all over the place I don't think my body knows what's going on. So it looks like I've caught a cold or something, and it's making my breathing prob flare up. :(
Just need to ride it out, I suppose. Ugh.
Anyway. I'm hoping to spend the rest of the week catching up on some reading and sorting out a few things. Whenever I get stuck into a project I find that I make a lot of clutter and usually don't get around to putting everything away until that book is written, revised or edited. Weird, huh?
That's about it for today.
Have a great week!
