September 14th already, how crazy is that? Where has all the months gone? Things are slowly starting to regulate again and go back to normal. Mind you my daily routine wasn’t changed much, that’s the beauty of already working from home.
Hubby on the other hand was like many others and was sent home to work. He didn’t mind this so much and seemed to adapt well. Unfortunately now though he is being called back to the office, at first it was only for one day a week, then to two, then three and now full weeks. He’s having a tough time readjusting back to the early alarm wake-ups and long eight hour days.
I think what bothers me about his going back to work is the silence. When he was home dealing with the loss of Ninja was easier. It was comforting to have him in the house; even if we were on opposite ends and different floors I could hear him every so often. But that first day he was gone, the first day I woke up and he was already out of the house was difficult.
She may have only been six pounds, and she may have slept about 90% of the time, but I knew she was there because she snored. Yeah, it’s a little thing you don’t think much of it when they are there. With Hubby home I didn’t notice as much. But when he was gone for the entire day, the silence was soul crushing.
I’m doing much better now, I am. It may not seem as though that’s the case, but it is. I’m starting to get back into those activities that I took some joy from. I don’t get up every morning and just want to crawl back into bed. I’m able to concentrate now, get things done. It is getting easier to carry. I’m not fully there yet, but I’m much closer.
I want to share with you a gem I was able to obtain. When I started thinking about Tor and her book I set out to look for some inspiration.
I knew she was going to be an orc, but I needed an image. I found one, an amazing one that fits her description extremely close. I tracked down the artist at Art Station and got her permission to use the image in some of my campaigns as well as share on my site. I will be adding the image to the gallery in a few weeks, but if you want to get a preview you will have to sign up for my newsletter. Hehe, ain’t I a stinker!
I’m kidding, you would have missed the email if you signed up today. But keep it in mind that the cover reveal is still coming and that is an exclusive for my subscribers.
Meet Tor, created by Joanna Wolska. Isn't she amazing?!
In other book news I have one more week before my editor gets Tor back to me. November 25th, 2020 is the released date, so mark your calendars! I will be running an event on Facebook that week as well and will have some fun giveaways (the first book in the Realm Wardens Series) as well as other fantasy authors you can meet and hangout with!
I’ve started the next project which is a rewrite/re-imagining of my first book series The Guardians. I can’t say it will be much of the same story, but the characters will be back, the world will be richer, and the story will be epic!
Look for this series, which will be re-branded as well (a fancy way of saying it’s getting a new name) they will be released in 2021.
Now before I go, I would like to introduce you to a fellow author, he has exciting news about his newest release!
Hello! My name is Adam Gaffen, and the second volume of The Cassidy Chronicles is now available for pre-order on Amazon!
Release day is SEPTEMBER 15
The Road to the Stars takes the story in a brand new direction. Here's the story:
Five years after the events in Volume One, life is good for the Cassidys.
Aiyana is perfecting her teleporters while running the Heavy Lift Corporation. Kendra is overseeing her ambitious starship project in her own, inimitable way.
They want nothing more than to live their lives and raise their girls.
It seems, though, that the universe has other plans for them.
First there's a mysterious request to meet with a pair of leaders from the world government; they have a problem and it seems the Cassidy's are the only ones who can solve it. But they've never met a challenge they could walk away from, and this one's no different.
Meanwhile, Kendra has to find a captain and a crew to make her starship come to life. Then there's the little matter of the science officer...
Juggling demands from every direction, will Cass and Ken be able to rise to the occasion again?

These past couple weeks I’ve enjoyed a little time to myself. With the book being with the beta’s I could concentrate on other things. I did indeed do some gaming, hammered out the timeline for the next series, and took a little day trip with the Hubby to Banff.
I was thrilled to discover that Banff had a Christmas store. It was the first place we went to and I added a Santa gnome to my collection. Along with a few Christmas ornaments.
It was a beautiful day, we went down to Bow Lake and stood at the freezing shore. I mean it was cold! Mind you there was a glacier just on the other side of the lake. We didn’t run into anyone until we headed back to the parking lot. Which by that time we were already in the car and on our way out.
My workouts have been a bit on the sporadic side. For a week there I wasn’t feeling so great. Moving was a challenge. But I did manage to finish enough kms to get my zodiac and pivot couch medals.
That bottom bar is starting to get some life to it!
The betas are slowly returning Tor to me and I have two weeks to go through those notes and fix any major issues. The 31st of August it will go to the editor.
The unfortunate part of all this is that it looks like I may need to get some new beta’s for the next series. My current ones lives are getting a little busy and they aren’t able to dedicate as much time needed to beta. These things happen, life happens, it’s to be expected in this industry.
Soon I will be releasing the Tor cover, but you will need to sign up for my newsletter for that.
The next couple weeks will be the beta revisions then it’s three weeks of writing the new series, getting a blurb put together, and starting to look at promoting.
One last thing, if you were interested in checking out Bounty it’s currently free at Kobo. You'll find it under Fantasy and Horror. Follow the link to grab your copy!
