status update

Well…I’m being a bad parent today. I am writing while I let the kids stay in their pajamas, eat what they want and watch tv or play Minecraft while I do. Now that I have finally completely restarted my manuscript, it is going well and flowing. I haven’t done the synopsis yet, I admit I have a horrible time trying to make a synopsis before I’ve written the manuscript, but I’m going to give it another try next week. Until then, I’m getting as much of the story out of my head and into the computer.  I am trying to stop thinking of book 2 as a bridge to book 3 and more of an independent story. It’s all about getting out of my own way.

I really want to make sure book 2 and 3 manuscripts are complete before next years RWA. I am really looking forward to attending. So I’ve made that my prize for finishing both 🙂 Not to mention, it’s been uplifting to hear from readers about how much they liked The Guardian of Bastet and want more. I don’t want to disappoint them. Or myself. But I have to admit, writing with two children and a one year old dog in the house during the summer is extremely tough. I’m doing my best and hope everyone can be patient. This past year has been a difficult one, and I am working hard to catch up on everything.

Back to work….


Happy Dance

I received my box of the The Guardian of Bastet in paperback. I have set up a second blog tour set up through Bewitching Book Tours to market my book for the first week of August and am giving away signed copies, free ebook copies and a gift basket. Very excited. I also dropped off three copies to the Henrietta Library to put out for circulation, just to get my name out there locally. Bookmarks are ordered and will also be sent out by request and to conferences to market my book there.


Now…if I could only finish the second one! Back to work…
