Nuttin' much.


Still trying to get the life balance thing on track.

Can you believe January is almost done? Made me realize it was time to take down the Xmas tree. :D (Don't shake you're head at me, the neighbors across the street still have their outside Xmas decorations up.)

On the writing front:

I got the galley for Hunter of the Heart earlier this month (deadline to finish the 30st!) The print version is scheduled for release Sept 4 2012. Honestly can't remember the process I went through for Felicity Stripped Bare galley, but this process seems more stream-lined.

Mitch's story is making me crazy. Cah-rah-zeee. I seem to be deleting more than I keep, but making so progress. And all the deleted stuff still gets saved in separate file, most of it won't make it back into the story, but fills in stuff in my head re the interactions/backgrounds of various characters including the H/h.

Also, for the readers who asked for Rob's story (the hero's bestfriend in Felicity Stripped Bare), I finally came up with something for him. Interestingly it wasn't his story, to start, I just knew I needed to write another straight contemporary and came up with a fun premise after reading a magazine feature article. A few months later, after having said idea stewing on the back-burners in my brain, I realized with a little tweaking the hero could be Rob. (after he has an accident on site and takes up yoga. lol. Yeah, if you read FSB, you know this is soooooo not Rob. lol) (I'm going to have so much fun with poor Rob with this story. mwahahaa) So after I finish Mitch's story, I'll start Rob's. (even came up with a cool title, but love it so much I won't post it).

But before I even start his story, I'll have to refresh my memory by re-reading Felicity Stripped Bare. *gulp* With the exception of edits, I never re-read my stories because ALL I see are the bad things: missed typos, ackward phrasing, things that could have been cut or fleshed out, etc. I cringe or teeter of the verge of cringing all the way through. Not a pleasant experience. :-P

That's pretty much all the news that's fit to print.

Later gators.

Yeah, I know the feeling.
