- I am currently working feverishly to get the 9th book in the Allie Beckstrom series done before the beginning of the year. For those of you keeping score, I am not even halfway into the book yet. That means I’m gonna be a hardworking mama this holiday season. But the book is outlined and I am SO excited about how I think it’s going to turn out. I have some surprises in store for Allie and the gang. Might even surprise a few readers!
- I received the revision notes for TIN SWIFT, book 2 in the Age of Steam steampunk series. My editor LOVED it! (yay!) These revisions are due not long after the Allie book is due, so I will also be a hardworking mama after the holiday season.
- Oh, and did I mention I just got in proofs for MAGIC WITHOUT MERCY? Yup. Those are due back in a couple weeks.
- Feast or famine, my friends, and the deadlines are feasting this December. 🙂
When it rains, it freezes:
The furnace kicked the bucket last night. We have no heat in the house. It is below freezing outside and just above freezing inside. I look like an extra in a a Dickens’ Christmas play: hat, fingerless gloves, two layers of sweaters, scarves, two sets of socks, blanket, sorrowful expression.
I am wondering why I’ve never knit myself a nose warmer. Perhaps something like this
I owe some people books and will hopefully be getting those in the mail tomorrow. If you don’t see something I owe you by…let’s say next Wednesday, please drop me an email.
