Sunday Report Card
Sunday, March 20th, 2011

I’m a slug. I’m hovering at the end of this BDSM story. I’ve wanted to be done with it for two weeks now, but I keep letting life get in the way. Someone, please nag me. Tell me I’m worthless—no, don’t do that, I might start to wonder if you were someone who read their first DD book and thought it sucked, then I’d suffer all kinds of new issues and NEVER write another word. Maybe if you beg me, very nicely, or tell me your dying sister doesn’t have long to live but wants to read THAT book before she does… You get the picture. I need a kick in the ass.

This week, I worked on taxes and things like release planning and promo spending. I also got my copyedits back for Handy Men. It shouldn’t be long before you see it on the Coming Soon page on Ellora’s Cave’s site.

This next week, with your well-placed boot, I hope to finish the BDSM story and revise the heck out of a short story, expanding it to novella length. I plan to release that novella in a volume with my sister in a straight-to-kindle project. Oh, and I should start today by finishing the copyedits for HM! Yeah, lots on my plate. I have to stay focused. Now, do your part!

    No chocolate or TV until you get all your work done. Shame on you for neglecting your readers and not finishing your books. I thought we taught you better than that.

    When you say release planning can I hope you mean Girls Who Bite. I need stuff for the post still. Please!

    What I want to know is WHY you’re having an issue with the end? Not working? Other things popping into that head of your making it longer or more complex?

    Allie! *whine* But I need to take a break now and then!

    Brandy! I sent some stuff. I don’t have a lot I can share just yet. Hope it was enough.

    And the ending of the BDSM story is tough because the last couple of chapters are all bare-ass dialogue I don’t want to revise.
