GREETINGS, MINIONS!!!! It feels like it has been a really long time since my last actual blog post. So here I am! I have so much going on right now, and it has mainly resulted in a juggling act I have barely been able to keep moving.
SPEAK OF THE DEVIL
My progress on SOTD is getting there. I am sooooo close to being done and having it off to my editor, but the 8 million other things I have on my plate have been seriously road-blocking my progress. In fact, as I realized it’s been forever since my last blog post and went right into writing this, I really SHOULD be working on SOTD instead. What happens is I start writing and I start thinking about my never-ending to-do list and then I actually feel guilty for not getting that other stuff done first. It’s all about finding the balance. Well, the rest of my afternoon will be spent trying to button SOTD up and get it out to the editor. So, hopefully, this will be the last ‘Speak of the Devil is almost done’ post you see. As for the story, I am loving it. It’s a touch darker than The Devil You Know, but also a little more…..steamy. It’s still not full-on romance, but the romantic story line is definitely more pronounced in this installment. You know what that means, though. Don’t get comfy because I am bound to start fucking things up for my characters at some point. Lol THE RELEASE DATE HAS NOT CHANGED! Speak of the Devil WILL be released on May 27th.
DANCE WITH THE DEVIL COVER
The cover for Dance with the Devil (Demon Legacy #3) is DONE and it is BAD ASS. I love it. I love love love love love LOVE it! But I can’t show you. Not yet anyway. The cover reveal will happen as soon as I hit publish on Speak of the Devil, I promise. It’s kind of hot and I am DYING to show you all!!!!
MY NEW JOB
I still work a day job and just recently started a new job at work. The adjustment period to change what I was doing was actually really quick. I am now settled into my little place in that new world and it’s kind of awesome. One of the main reasons I went for this job is the extra time it affords me to do things like read, write, and manage Pure Textuality/Pure Textuality Public Relations/Pure Textuality Convention. This has actually worked out REALLY well, but the initial change was a lot to deal with, but as I said, it was quick. On days that we are not super-busy, I have approximately 6.5 hours to write. That’s 6.5 hours a day with no TV, no kids, no distractions at all. I can get a LOT done in 6.5 hours. That being said, there are certainly days when I have 0 hours of spare time….like yesterday, but that pretty much only happens one day a week. What does all this mean for you? It means I will be able to crank the Demon Legacy books out a LOT faster and I will be able to get the Killer Instinct books started! If I can get Dance With The Devil (Demon Legacy #3) written this summer and get Bad Wolf (Killer Instinct #1) started by fall, I should be able to release it in Spring 2015. That is VERY exciting! Up until recently, the Killer Instinct books were a shelf project that had absolutely no projected date of completion. SELF HIGH FIVE!
2014 PURE TEXTUALITY CONVENTION
I have been desperately trying to save the Pure Textuality Con for the last few weeks. As you know, I am the owner of Pure Textuality and Pure Textuality Public Relations. I have been planning this con for over a year and we are now in a crunch to get ticket sales taken care of so we can pay for the convention. This project has taken up a TON of my time lately, further contributing to the juggling act. If you would like to know more about the convention, you can visit the convention site at http://puretextualitycon.com
Well, that’s about it for right now. I just wanted to give you all a quick status check on where everything is standing with me. I have to go write now before my editor hunts me down and starts poking me in the face for not working on SOTD. Wink wink!
