I had such big plans! A workshop to run, NaNoWriMo to complete, family events…
It’s the 17th of the month, and I’m falling behind, big time!
First, the Mindmapping workshop is ongoing, although I haven’t been there much to prod folks along to create their 2019 Writing Mind Map. I haven’t even begun mine!!!! How crappy is that of me to abandon them?
Next, I’m only 11,552 words into NaNo’s 50k wordcount requirement. There’s no way I’ll get there now!
I have tons of great excuses…
A sh*t-ton of last-minute, short-fused editing jobs plopped into my inbox. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not very good at budgeting my editing time. I want to help everyone! So, I shove other commitments aside and go to work.
I’ve done a crapload of babysitting and petsitting for my dd while she’s been up to her eyeballs in kid’s events and medical appointments. No way will I ever tell her NO! She does so much for me in return.
Supporting my dad through rehab and his transition back home haven’t been horribly time-consuming, because my brother is visiting and doing everything he can to take the pressure off of us! So lately, that’s not been a huge time-suck.
Because I haven’t had a lot of time to write on my own projects, I’ve had to push back release dates.
I’ve pushed the release date for Wolf from November 20th to December 7th. I’m hoping I’ll finish the book sooner, but I thought I’d better give myself room to fail (that sounds so negative, doesn’t it?). Thanksgiving’s coming up, so I’m sure I’ll have more household duties, since it looks like we’ll have 20 people coming for dinner, and many of those will be staying in the house with us! I am hoping to release it by the end of this month but don’t hold your breath. Are you horribly disappointed?
I have two more books up for pre-order—the last pre-orders I’ll get for a year because I had to change my release dates. I hate losing that privilege with Amazon, but there’s just been too much happening. Worse than not knowing whether you’re eager for the book (as evidenced by your pre-orders), I won’t have hard deadlines, and I’m not good about producing without deadlines! Y’all will just have to nag me for what you want next!
As for those two pre-orders, have a look here. I can’t tell you how excited I am about Animal! I hope you are, too! I don’t know much about it yet, because I haven’t written a single line, but I do have a great, really funny opening scene in my mind. With that cover pic, maybe you can imagine one, too! As for With His Client, I’ve started that story, and a strongman with the Russian mafia is our girl’s target for seduction…
With His Client is a shorty coming December 18!
And Animal is scheduled to release January 22nd!
For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, tell me two things:
1) Which story are you most eager to read?
2) Does the cover for Animal inspire any ideas for scenes in your own imaginations?
Oh I want all the books!! And more!! But Wolf first? Lol
And Animal scenes… I would think there would be an outdoor sex scene… cause… well just cause!!!
I am excited about With His Client as I devour this series over and over again. And yes, there are many devious thoughts about Animals cover in my head; mostly climbing him like a tree until we both become animals! Lol. Thank you for the chance and opportunity.
Personally I’m loving the Bounty Hunter series, so I can’t wait for Wolf and Animal, Delilah! Hugs, and you continue to amaze me with how you balance writing and your very full life!
O I’ve been waiting for the Stepbrothers Stepping book so I’m most looking forward to that one. Just went and preordered it.
And as for Animal? I agree that there definitely must be a hot, steamy outdoors sex scene. Liked the comment about climbing him like a tree……perhaps they could be in one of those tree-house hotel thingys. Have you seen those on TV? They look like such fun.
I want all your books, but stepping out series holds a special place in my heart so I can’t wait for more of them.
And animal inspires dreams of my exhibitionist side getting to be explored in the mountains
I think Animal. The cover does inspire some scenes. I cannot wait to read it.
Animal and I can think of a few things i’d Like to do.
ANIMAL for me and just YES, YES, YES.
Loving the cover for Animal and Wolf! Both inspire ideas! 😉
Time is flying by… I usually have some shopping done by now, but I have nothing!
You couldn’t have a more perfect cover! Animal!
I’m most eager to read Animal. That cover is giving me all kinds of ideas.
