Busy doing stuff.

Hi folks, I’ve been a bit AWOL lately. They say that life is what happens while you make other plans. How true it is. Our recently expanded family obligations have kept me hoping, but there was more. I’ve spent way too much time here:

Going back and forth to the city to get my taxes done. That was two trips. Then there was the three trips to get all the paperwork right for this:

So I could go play. However, all that cost me a week of writing and I feel like I’m getting way behind. With any luck at all I will be able to get back to this:

By the end of the week. Oh, and for those of you who asked, yes we did name the new wheels. She is Virki. It means stronghold or place of safety. (So I’m told. It is pronounced Veerki)
So, that’s it for me today. Don’t forget, you can ask me anything so don’t be shy. Let me hear from you. J

Busy Week

Hey folks, it’s been a busy week here. Wednesday was K’s birthday and the celebration was with family and food as is the tradition. I spent much of the day in the kitchen preparing her favorite foods. By request there was no cake, but there was apple pie. Oh yeah, there goes the old waistline.
On the work side of life I have early finish the first tune up of Beyond Nova and will soon hand it off to the editor. Meanwhile we are working hard to get Starstruck ready for a launch next week. Wish us luck.
Here’s hoping all is well in your worlds and that you are reading lots. Let me know how you’re doing, I love to hear from you.

Breathe

I’m calling this post breathe, because I need to remind myself to take the time to do just that. Seriously. This past two weeks have been busy and then some. This is week started out brilliant as I launched my new Vampire book, the Immortal Tigress. This is a different take on the beginnings of the legend. I published the novel on Smashwords then set about promoting and publicizing it. It was much later in the day I learned that Smashwords was down.
That was a bit of a shock, and they stayed down for nearly two days. How the heck was I supposed to deal with that? I had spread the word, but no one could find the book. It was time for some damage control, but what can you do really? 
After I got back from the city Wednesday I knew it was time for action. Thursday I went to the Smashwords page and opted out of their distribution to Amazon, seeing as how it never materialized anyway.
I set up my author page on Amazon and slowly, one at a time, uploaded all my books to Amazon myself. The deed is done now and all my work is available on Amazon now. Cool. I even bit the bullet and listed my new book for their lending library. So, there is where the week went. It was madness, but it is done now. All my work can be found on Amazon here:
You can also find the Immortal Tigress here:
