It’s been a wild, hectic week filled with early promotion for the upcoming Taliasman (you read the first chapter for Sci Spanks). I don’t have a publication date from Decadent Publishing, but I’m hoping it will be in the early fall. “Living in Sin” is scheduled for March 11, 2015 from Less Than Three Press. I’ve also been doing very preliminary work on another short story for next spring and the third Kat and Natalie book (hoping for next year). Some exciting things are happening for Kat, although (would you expect any different?) they will mean some soul-searching and angst for both of them.
I’m hard at work with writing and revising, so I’ll leave you with just this story today:
One of my favorite quilting grannies (although they’re nearly all my favorite, in one way or another), called me yesterday and said everyone was worried because I’d missed last week. I was sick for most of a week after spending time with anklebiters, but last week I forgot the date. Day. Month. Seriously. I told her, “Sorry, no, I’m fine! Just didn’t realize Tuesday was the first day of July. I thought we were meeting next week.”
Today, everyone welcomed me and asked if I felt better. Er…yes, since it’s been two weeks since I was sick? 😀 I said, “I’m the youngest, by far, in this group, and Quilting Granny H had to call me yesterday to tell me today was today.” Everyone laughed, and we barely started playing before another of my favorite grannies accused me of cheating. It was an honest mistake, I swear! I tried to explain how I’d gotten confused, and she said, “But-but-but…see, you can’t even say it. Don’t even try!” I harrumphed and said, “What did you all do when I wasn’t here last week to pick on?” “It was horrible,” said another. As if they don’t banter with each other. 🙂
There is an event tomorrow, and I hadn’t RSVPed yet. I asked about it, and they said of course, please come. So I said, at the end of the day, “See you on Wednesday!” Another quilting granny, the one in charge of that event, looked at me and said, “You know tomorrow is Wednesday, right?”
Hope you have a wonderful day, even if you’re not sure exactly which day it might be. 😀
