This is sort of a random mish mesh, catch up post of “stuff” that’s been going on here. Middle son had another all star game last night and he made a monster catch in the last inning. Huge stuff. My heart nearly stopped. Bases loaded. Only one out. Tying run at the plate. Kid hit a hard ground ball to my kid at second base. Jake went to his knees to make the stop. It nearly knocked him over and he threw the player out from his knees. Much jubilation in the stands commenced. Very next batter hit another hard one right at the pitcher. Pitcher knocked it down and threw him out at first to end the game.
I was one proud mama :hug:
In writing stuff…things have been interesting. As most of you know, I was finishing up on Sweet Persuasion (Damon’s story) okay well I actually finished it a few weeks ago (ahead of schedule woooo!) but it bugged me so I put it away, went to work on other stuff (because really I have a never ending to do list *sigh*) and then went back to it. It still bugged me.
I have a couple of readers…okay let me break away and say that I’m extremely anal/protective/freaky about who reads my stuff prepublication. I don’t really have crit partners but I do have a few people I trust to ask for an honest opinion. First reader loved the story *sigh* Okay so Im thinking maybe it’s just her. The next will tell me wtf is wrong with this story. And this next person is always mean to me which is why I love her so. I mean she’s vicious. She loves it. She thinks it’s my best story yet. She has no idea wtf my problem is with it. *arg!*
In a rare desperate outbreak, I have two remaining people read it, and yeah, you guessed it, they loved it. Clearly I am either a moron or they’re all wrong :purplelaugh: Guess we’ll see…
I’ve been jamming on Into the Lair which makes me happy because I had a rather extensive break from it while completing multiple projects/tasks. I was worried it would take me awhile to get back into the story, but I find I’m enjoying it a lot. Katie is sort of shooting people at the moment, and I’m having a lot of fun with that. Blood and blowing shit up. What could be more fun?
Next week I’ll mail Sweet Persuasion and The Tycoon’s Pregnant Mistress off to their respective publishers, two huge tasks out of the way and I’ll finish up Into the Lair so that in July I can dig into Theron’s story (The Silhouette Desire book which has no name yet)
And yes I’ve said it probably half a dozen times, but it bears repeating because I cannot bloody wait, but in August I get to jump back into The Darkest Hour which is the first book in my Kelly Group series and I love, love, love Ethan and Rachel’s story! :guitar:
So yeah, that’s all from my corner. You’ll know what I’m up to for like the next year or so lol. Books. Lots and lots of books to write, but hey, it means I stay employed, and that’s always something to celebrate :whoo:
