Back To The Grind

Back To The Grind

Posted by on Oct 19, 2011 in Uncategorized | 2 comments

Holidays are over and I’m back to work, *sad face* but that’s just the beginning. Shift has been sent to a few trusted critique partners, so while I wait for them to get back to me, I need to keep myself busy. If I don’t, my nerves will get the best of me and I’ll end up bald. Nobody wants that to happen.

On my to do list over the next week:

1) Read a book
2) Beta/Critique for the sequel of the above book
3) Write a character guest post (I’m currently struggling with how to approach this)
4) Finish a character interview (I’ve written a couple, not sure which one I’ll send out though)
5) Start outlining Book 3 in The Protector Series (I have lots of ideas and a general direction, but I need to organize all these thoughts on paper. This could take some time. I need to carefully plot this, because this will determine whether the series is a trilogy, or longer)
6) Come up with a design for the cover of SHIFT that I can give to my cover artist (Again, I have a few different idea’s, I’m just not sure what direction I want to take things)
7) Read some more books off my TBR pile (it’s unbelievably long)

That’s my list for the next week. I probably won’t get this all done in a week, but as you can see, even when I’m not writing, I’m crazy busy. I have a small surgery tomorrow, and I’ll be bed ridden for four days. I’m hoping to use that time to catch up on some sleep, and take a huge chunk out of this list.

As for my holidays, they were busy! Until the last two days, I didn’t have a moment to just relax. I finished SHIFT (obviously since the beta readers have it). I finally got to get some reading done, check out of my review of Wildflowers Combe Back, from author Sarah Spann. My oldest daughter turned 5 and I still can’t believe it. Much of my holidays were taken up with getting things ready for her party. Like a giant spider cake my wife baked, and I worked on decorating. Check this out:

Gross and awesome, all at the same time! I know.

Well that’s been my life for the last 10 days, and now you know what my plans are for the week. What are you working on over the next while?


  1. Aww that cake is cute!
    Cover: Chase & Rayna on the cover = good idea!!! 🙂
    Glad you had a great vacation!
    Take Care.

  2. Haha, thanks! At least we now know that decorating cakes is not a career path I should follow.

    I can't put Chase and Rayna on the cover. I have this thing…I don't like faces on book covers. Don't ask why. LOL
