Busy Bee is Me!

Just thought I'd post a quick update...I've been busy with other aspects of my life, such as being consumed with tasks at my day job, doing spring-time chores around the house and yard, etc., etc. Haven't had much time to write the last couple weeks...but I'm back in the saddle this week working on my urban fantasy novel, Thirteen.

Last weekend I signed and returned the publishing contracts for Chasing Shadows (formerly Dream Chasers). The contracting process was overly long, responses were slow or nil, so what should have been an ecstatic moment putting that envelope in the mailbox was just a ho hum moment I felt glad to get off my shoulders. But I feel happier about it now. After all, it is my first publishable-ready book and my first book contract! What's not to be happy as hell about?

The fun is just beginning as I engage with my editor, go thru edits, review cover art, start promotions, and all that other stuff that goes into getting published.

I'll update my Blog as my path to publishing progresses. My next mini-article on "Writing a Novel" is forthcoming. Check out my website for my new updated pages: "Writers Resources", "Fun Stuff", and keep your eye on my "Contest" page for my first contest.

Have a great week!
