Whew! As I write this, the weekend is pretty well over and I’m finally feeling better after a bout with some sort of stomach bug. I haven’t been sick in so long I forgot how annoying it is – so I’m grateful this was a quick moving thing. My only regret is that it happened over the weekend…would have been so much more convenient during the work week…
Congratulations again to Carol and Brooklyn for winning ebooks from Karen Fenech last week! She’s a great writer, and I’m sure you’ll love her books, but more than that, she’s a great person to talk to, so I hope you’ll all look her up on Twitter | Facebook and get to know her.
That post may or may not have been responsible for at least one reading binge…the J.R.Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood series was mentioned several times.
Thursdays are going to be changing around here in January, with the advent of a new collaborative blog project I’m working on with another yet-to-be-named author. The subject matter is something I think both readers and writers will find interesting, and the format one that should really encourage good dialogue and thought. More on that soon…
This Week on The Variety Pages
Tuesday: Ch. 27 of The Biker’s Wench
Wednesday: Everyday Romance – Happy to be Single
Friday: Ch. 28 of The Biker’s Wench
Thursday at Beyond the Words : Media Kits – Author Bios
For writing, I didn’t exactly stay ahead of my serials last week, but I did stay caught up, which was good. The edits for Desert Heat are coming right along, and I did indeed post at the writing notes blog about my juggling act. I ended the week right where I should be, which makes me happy and motivated.
The business and personal goals didn’t fare so well, unfortunately. It’s my own fault (isn’t it always?), though I would have gotten a lot more done this weekend had I been feeling better. C’est la vie…must keep moving forward.
Goals for the Week
Two scenes for The Biker’s Wench
Two scenes for erotica serial
One scene for the serial thriller
One scene for The Minister’s Maid
As much editing as possible on Desert Heat
Build blog for serial thriller
Finish off cafe press store and link
Tweet out a couple Tempest freebie codes
Buy a new, smaller Christmas tree to set up.
Finish whatever decorating I’m going to do.
Try to catch up on laundry.
Write family Christmas newsletter for cards.
That’s more than enough for me – what’s on your plate this week? Have you sent out Christmas cards yet? Is your tree up (or do you have one)?
