Not ready to take a deep breath… And OPEN CONTESTS!
Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021

I’m still waiting to DO NOTHING.  I finished Chase, and it’s out.  (If you haven’t read it yet, click on the cover! And thank you to everyone who has already purchased it!)

Chase (Montana Bounty Hunters: Dead Horse, MT Book 4)After the rush to get the book out, I hoped to take some time off from everything writing-related. It’s summer after all. And I’ve been very, very busy with writing, editing, and promoting. I’d like to rest my brain for a bit and recharge. These days, I cram work in to get it done. And while I do spend some evenings with the family—movie nights, swimming—I’d love to have a day (no, dayzzz) where I can wander upstairs and chat with kids and my dd without them raising eyebrows and asking, “Don’t you have some work to do?” How lovely it would be to say, “Nope. I’ve got nothin’ on my calendar. Not a damn thing.” But first, I have to finish the rush editing job I’m working on now. I have two more behind it, but I can take a break before I start them.

What would I do with that time off? I want to “art”. I want to make some potholders. Do some floating aimlessly around the pool. I want to binge on a series or two. I’m in the middle of one I never thought I’d watch nevermind enjoy—Downton Abbey. As a general rule, I don’t like British period pieces. Bridgerton bored the hell out of me. I yawned through the trailer for The Crown. But Downton? I thought I’d give it a shot…watch one show… And now, I’m invested in everyone’s lives. Who knew?!

And I want to watch The Witcher. It looks right up my alley. And dear God, could Henry Cavill be any more beautiful than he already is?!

So, I’m rambling, but you know what my goal is: Finish these damn edits and DO NOTHING.
