Oh man! It’s 2012 already. Where did 2011 go? It feels like we just finished watching Obama’s Inauguration speech. And since, either America is spinning out of control in a hand basket to hell or we’re being prepared to be shot from a cannon to the stars. My wish is to shoot for the stars. It sounds better than being spiraled into a place of fire and brimstone.
So I will go onward with my goals and ambitions no matter who the new YAHOO is in the White House. I say, hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
My main goals this year is to complete the edits on Secondhand Shoes. I finished rewriting the last twelve chapters last week. The MS is in the hands of the beta readers and will be undergoing some more changes. Not many, though. After, it will go to my editor. During that time, I’ll be interviewing book cover artists. I’ve got three in mind.
When the book cover has been decided upon it will go to formatting, and I’ll be drafting the second book to the series. Yes. I said series.
While writing the last chapter, Lila, Gram, and another character decided to carry on Lila’s adventures. How many books will there be in this series? Don’t ask me, I’m a PANSTER who plans little. I go with what my characters want to do.
Contessa and Arthur are still waiting for me to get to their edits of their first book. It’s in it’s second draft hanging out on a 4GB disk. And there’s also my angel, Ariel. He and his demon adversary, Phil, are waiting to be resurrected, too.
Lot’s of things are going on in my life. Did I tell you guys I won an award? And there isn’t any silly rules with this one. But I’m going to pass it on to the four peeps who visit me every time I post something. Their comments range from humorous to sweet. But before I do that, I wish to thank Lorelei Bell.
She’s the author of Vampire Ascending and Vampire’s Trill. It was very sweet of her to award this to me. You all should check her out at the following blog sites: Lorelei's Muse, Lorelei's Writing Journal, and Something Nebulous Within. You should also get her books. I absolutely love her voice and plots.
Okay, to the four peeps I wish to pass this award to:
William Kendall @ Speak of the Devil (He loves snow. He’s got infectious wit and writes a lot of political satire)
Norma Beshir @ Sam's Story (This is my favorite blog she does. Writing from her little bird’s perspective. It’s great.)
Eve Gaal @ The Desert Rocks (She writes adorably sweet stuff. It’s definitely a reflection of who she is.)
Beth Muscat @ All Kidding Aside (She hates snow but loves kitties and Wal Martians. If you want to begin your day with a bit of laughter. Check her out.)
I also wish to invite you to check out our little group(Norma, William, Eve, and Beth are a part), Writers of Mass Distraction. We are a group of writers dedicated to helping new and Indie authors getting exposure. You can also find us on Facebook.
Well, that’s all for now folks!
I’ll be back Tuesday to tell you about what’s on my Kindle and give you all two mini book reviews I’ve been meaning to post to my blog for awhile.
As for Sir Poops and Hair Ball, they’ve got a a food hangover. They enjoyed Sonny’s BBQ a little too much last night along with tastes from No-No’s New Year’s Eve cupcakes.
I’ll see you all later in the ink,
