Good news – the Tempest paperbacks are out for delivery today! Signed copies will go out tomorrow, and those of you in the states should have them within the week. Out of the country will probably take a little longer, but hopefully you’ll have those soon as well. Thanks for your patience – now that I know how long this process takes, I’ll definitely have my copies on hand before the next release date.
There are still 19 signed copies available for anyone who’d like one….
Of course my new Kindle will be delivered today as well. I’m super-excited, but I promise I won’t get lost in anyone else’s book until I sign and package my own to send out. This is a good thing – because once I pick it up, it’s liable to turn into a bonefide reading binge.
Speaking of Kindles – wanna win one? Zoe Winters is giving one…maybe two away over at her blog for your purchase and/or helping her promote her paranormal romance anthology, Blood Lust (.99 today only for Kindle). Head on over to her blog for details – if nothing else, buy a copy. You won’t regret it – Zoe is a phenomenal writer.
Indelibly Inked will end this week with Chapter 35. And I’m going to postpone Chapter 4 of The Biker’s Wench because it will slide into the weekly serial spot after Indelibly Inked is done, and you’ll get a new 1k installment every Friday starting on Sept. 10. I’ll leave the first three chapters on Scribd until I start editing, and when each full chapter is done, I’ll post that there as well. So you can either read as I write in around 1k installments here at the blog, or wait until each 3k chapter is finished and read it on Scribd (it won’t be three weeks between – I need to get ahead in preparation for NaNo). Or you can wait until next May/June when it’s revised and ready for sale. I’m all about options!
And because I just don’t have enough blogs out there (actually, it’s because I needed to get a new Live Journal account so I could comment on LJ blogs) I set up the blog that comes with my account for just quick, random snippets from my virtual writing desk (process notes, if you will, not guaranteed to be decipherable). I’ve set it to feed through Tumblr, so it will post to my FB wall & twitter for those of you who are wisely not blog junkies with accounts everywhere. I swear, blogging is an addiction…which is a great lead in for…
This Week on The Variety Pages
Wednesday: Everyday Romance – Surprise!
Friday: Chapter 35 (Final) of Indelibly Inked
Thursday at Beyond the Words
Self-Publishing: Be Prepared
Last week, I really tried hard to get back into HPC. And I realized that I can’t write the same story twice, even if it’s to make it different. So I’ve consigned HPC back to the trunk, and am moving on with projects I’m far more excited about. I’m starting the revisions for Desert Heat this week and working on Chapter 4 of The Biker’s Wench.
As for personal goals, I ate pretty decently, worked out twice, and got a little more planning done for the party. I’m still trying to catch up my laundry…nothing terribly surprising about that.
Goals for the Week
Start Ch. 4 of The Biker’s Wench
Ch. 35 of Indelibly Inked
Start Desert Heat Revisions
Work on secret pen name projects
Send out signed copies of Tempest
Start taking the stairs again at work
Start decorating for Halloween
Last week I started The Truth Lies in the Dark by Kristin Callendar…and am loving it so far (6 chapters in). Excellent mystery so far.
That’s it for me this week – what’s on your plate? Read any good books lately?
