Busy Bee Over Here

The last month things have been so busy I haven’t posted a thing, for that I apologize. My goal is to get caught up and get my posts going again.

Here’s what’s been happening…

I finished one book – edits, cover, formatting… I’m just waiting for the proof copy to arrive before I can go any further. I have also finished the first draft of a different book and have started the edits for it. I have finished two shorts for anthology submissions – one for a publishing company in Australia (still waiting to hear back from them) and the other for an event I will be attending in March in Arlington, TX.  A longtime friend and I have joined up to start offering a local mini-con book event in a couple of years, so tons of brainstorming moments have happened there as well. The garden is being overhauled for the fall plants and I’ve done what I can in there to help hubs out.

And while I make this list it doesn’t seem as if I should be that busy…but really they are all time-consuming projects that have in many moments overwhelmed me.

Book reviews:

Well in the month of August I read more than five books and the ratings all went up on Goodreads… I didn’t write out any extensive reviews (I know that is horrid of me.) but I can list them here and give you links if you want to take a look at them yourselves.
