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.

The last couple weeks have been me frantically trying to finish my book. I had about 40k to go and still had no climax or ending. I picked at it for two weeks hoping against all hope that the biggest missing parts would come to me.
When I woke on Saturday I still had no idea what the climax was going to be. The book was due Monday morning and I was at a loss. I procrastinated for most the morning then sat down for about two hours in the afternoon slowly inching my way to the end of the book.
Then it hit me, I knew what had to be done. After a late dinner and an hour or so of more procrastinating, I resigned to my office where for the next three hours I hammered out the climax and ending of the book.
I slumped on the couch in victory around 10pm Saturday night. I’d completed my eleventh full length novel! Before dinner on Sunday it was sent out to my beta’s. They’ll have it now for three weeks.
I’m in that strange spot now where I just finished one project and am in the midst of starting the next. It’s a small lull that usually takes a day or two to get over before I start working on the next book, or promos, or blurbs, or whatever needs to be done.
I already know what the next project will be. You’ll have to sign up for my newsletter to get the inside scoop on that. But I will say that it’s a trilogy that will be released next year and it’s a project I’ve wanted to dig into since 2013.
As for my plans for the next day or two, I think I will partake in some game play, get some more km’s in for my virtual races, and just enjoy the short window of time off. Because before I know it, I’ll be eyebrow deep in beta notes, editor notes, promos, marketing, then a new world, and rinse and repeat!
I don’t think I say this enough, I love my job.
Stay safe, Stay Healthy, Love always, and follow your Bliss
