Talk about your long absences!
I’ve been horrible about keeping up with this blog. I don’t know why. I mean aside from the fact I have trouble coming up with things to talk about.
Let’s see—what has happened since my last post….
Heaven’s Torment is with my editor and has been there for a couple of weeks. I’m afraid the answer is going to be a no. I can’t say why, but it’s just a feeling I have. So, I’ve been trying to find a project that I can totally commit to but right now it’s like running in quick sand.
I leave for my long awaited trip in six days so of course my excitement level has been ratcheted up several notches. It’s made concentration impossible. The harder I try to force my focus, the worse it gets. As I sit here staring at this computer I keep hoping something will grab my attention and I can get some work done.
Part of me feels as if I shouldn’t push myself so hard. If you look at it logically I have accomplished a lot this year:
1) Egyptian Nights debuted in January
2) Beyond Death released in June
3) Wrote and submitted a new manuscript
4) As Donica I had a release in May and I have another in October
5) I submitted a short story under my Donica name
6) I have my first print book releasing in August (as Donica)
7) I have a release in October (Donica)
8) I have a release in February (Donica)
9) Another release in July (Donica)
The other part of me feels as if I’m lacking. Jinger has no more scheduled releases and I want to get a few more under my belt. Writing is important to me. It’s my career choice and if I don’t write, I don’t sell which means I don’t get published.
So, what does a writer do when stuck in limbo? I’m still trying to figure that out. If I come up with an answer, I’ll let you know. If you authors out there have any suggestions, I’m wide open!
I’m dying to get another horror written, but I’m lacking inspiration.
My publisher Resplendence, has an exciting line called Wicked—grown up versions of the fairytales we all grew up with. I’d love to write one but I’m not doing so hot with finding the perfect one.
There is another new and exciting offer coming in the future from RP but I’m not ready to announce it because I’m waiting for them to release the formal announcement. As soon as they do, I’ll be sharing it with you. Put it this way, I know you’re all going to love it! Now, if only I could come up with something to fit that as well!
Well, guess I’m going to go and stare at the screen some more. Maybe I can come up with a way to squeeze blood from a turnip…
Hugz til next time!
