Writerly Stuff

I'm amazed how time continues to fly. Where did winter go because spring is here! Yay!

And guess what? 50 days till the release of RESCUE ME!!! And yes, I'm getting VERY excited!

However, I have to admit, I get a bit paranoid that people who read my blog think I must not be very busy since I only blog every few weeks. What does she do between blog posts? Since I have three books due this year and have only a rough first draft of one of them, I became a bit anxious of how much progress I'm making. Recently I started jotting down my daily activities to see exactly where my time is going.

So, in case you're wondering too, here's what's happened since my last blog post:

Finished first draft of new book; read four books for the RWA Rita contest, completed three interviews, reviewed and signed contact for new trilogy; made contact with several bookstores and booksellers; sent list of my promotional plans to agent, editor and publicist; attended monthly chapter meeting; bought new laptop; received page proofs of RUN TO ME and started working on them; reviewed new changes to website with my web designer; brainstormed and made notes for new book I'm beginning next week.

Whew! It makes me feel better to write this down to see that I have made some progress. Unfortunately other things can get in the way of my writing, which has to be my main priority. Without the writing, there's no reason for most of the other stuff.

Really hope to finish the first draft of the new book by the end of March. Fingers crossed! I'll check back in a couple of weeks and let you know my progress.

Till next time, hope you take the time to stop and smell the spring flowers and also, that you buy and read some great books! And don't forget, my entire trilogy can be pre-ordered!
