Sunday Report Card
Sunday, June 27th, 2010

The winners of my latest contest are listed at the bottom of this post!

The big news of the week was the surprise release of Veiled Alliance. Here’s hoping you all ordered your copies along with the copies of Un, Deux, Trois, Menage! last week! Hey, a girl can hope! Anyway, I spent the latter part of the week trying to get the word out about my new print book.

I was hampered this week by the temporary demise of my satellite. The three days I was without Internet could have been great, uninterrupted writing time, but I had things in the air that needed to be communicated, so I parked for a day at my daughter’s to pre-post blogs and do some back and forth on another project.

Yesterday, I spent the whole day in Little Rock, shopping with my daughter and attending the pharaoh’s exhibit at the Arkansas Arts Center (I’ll talk about that tomorrow).

I only managed to finish one chapter of one book for the whole week. Very, very sad indeed. I’m almost afraid to set down my goals again in case some other catastrophe besets me, but here goes anyway.

This is what I hope to achieve this week:
* Finish EC Quickie
* Begin work on Dream Lover short story
* Work on characters and plot for Viking story
* Write lesson on queries for FFnP class
* Place order for promo items for Lora Leigh’s Readers Appreciation Weekend

That is, after I plow through 1,002 emails that accumulated in my inbox while my Internet was out. I’m house-sitting for a friend on Lake Hamilton for the holiday weekend. I’m hoping the change of place will help me keep my nose to the grindstone.

So, back to the winners of my “While Delilah’s Away” contest. Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog and facebook. All your entries counted. The winners of the $25.00 gift certificates, by random number generator, are…Christine Rivero and Beth C! Ladies, be sure to email me so that I know where to send the eGift certificates! Congratulations!

    Good luck on the goals this week. Sometimes life gets in the way. Actually it seems to do that all of the time.

    Oh Valerie it doesn’t look good for England.

    Valerie! Thanks, enjoy the game. Since my son left home, I’ve fallen off watching the World Cup. Hope your team wins!

    Carol! Thanks for dropping by!

    Brandy! Yeah, I know. But I will try to stay focused this week. I begin working on the next Viking book!

    Delilah, not every week can be a knock-it-out-of-the-park in terms of writing :) Glad you got some shopping in and that your computer problems are behind you :) Crossing my fingers that you have a great writing week this week!

    And congrats, Beth and Christine! Yippee!
