Guess what? I just signed up for Authorgraphs and now am proud to offer electronic autographs of your copy of Vennie! You can even request an autograph if you don’t have a copy yet, and it doesn’t have to be Kindle, either. You can sign up for a new Authorgraph account or just use your Twitter account. Be sure to let me know who you are so I can include a personalized message. 😀
Mira (Desire in Any Language) comes out this Friday. That’s three days away! I’ve heard back from a few reviewers who received advance copies, and the responses have made me blush. Wow. Gratified that others see something special about my newest baby-to-be.
I’m waiting anxiously for Mira’s cover art. It took me at least an hour to fill out the request form. In an unprecedented move, I sent photos that I thought represented the main characters. (Why don’t I like people on my covers? Read here.) I don’t know whether the cover artist will choose to include images of Mira, but it surprises me that I hope the artist does…if she can do it well. If she does, and if I get the cover in time to do an official cover reveal post, I will write about Mira and perhaps share the image I thought best represented her.
I submitted Vennie 2! Thank you for the title ideas! I struggled writing one scene that only included male characters, but I was lucky enough to receive input from two of our favorite male HoH bloggers, Bas and Mick. Thank you so much! I am blessed to have your help. Vennie 2 turned out to be less fanciful slapstick and more like a spanky Family Ties.
Pretty much the *exact second* that I sent Vennie 2 in (the moment I’d planned to take a well-deserved break before plunging back into the so-called day job that’s been perpetually neglected since the writing bug bit me), I got an idea for a new story. I groaned because I wanted to rest instead of write, but I ungraciously sat down to type. Three days later, I’m 2/3 done with the first draft. I wish I could tell you about it because this has been *the* most fun story I have written so far. I’m easily amused, but it’s not often that I think I’m writing something funny as I write it.
I’m still not calling myself skilled at humor, but this new set of characters has me rolling about with laughter. I dash to my new best and worst friend, Write or Die (a horrible, fantastic application/software that forces me to write or suffer from first a pink screen, then a red one, and then any horrible number of sounds ranging from a badly scraping violin…to some horrible singer I assume must be popular…to blaring car horns…to other horrendous ones I hope not to discover), and whether it’s the fear of punishment or the love of these new characters…the story is springing up like magic.
Oh, and I have a VERY special project that I can’t mention until a big public announcement on January 25th. It will be exciting. It will be fantastic. It will be amazing. It will…darn it, I hate waiting!! *pout* I wanted to announce it a whole month ago (Christmas Eve), but for various reasons I had to wait. Impatiently. 😉
Tell me what’s happening in your life! Whatever’s on your mind. I miss our chances to pull up a chair and talk about whatever we want. Go on. I’m listening. 🙂
P.S. What about this pantless subway ride? Spankos, all of them. How frustrating it would be to take part in this event and not get to take “full” fun.
