Just a few words this morning – woke up too early, thinking about edits, and*** – so I decided to “stop by” for a few minutes.
It’s cold this morning in NE Florida – 37* according to weather.com – I’m ready for a cool snap, just wish we’d quit with the 80s one day and the 60s the next… Oh well, we don’t have to deal with that four-letter word – SNOW! On cold mornings I like a dash of nutmeg in my coffee – it’s so fragrant! So I am sipping coffee, ready to BEGIN…
UPDATE: Book Two of the Rock and Roll Trilogy – When I Look to the Sky – is out to my first responders! (ha!) Seeing some red, but that’s good – they are catching what I missed. I love them for doing this – I’m not naïve enough to think they want to read it to look for typos; they want to read it because THEY WANT TO KNOW! 🙂 It’s all good though, as they read I get text messages, phone calls and emails that bring me great JOY! And they find things that they bring to my attention. I’m glad! I’m reading a book now where there is a character named ‘Carrie’ and more than once I’ve seen ‘Carry’ – spell check wouldn’t catch that – so I’m glad for my readers to check me before the next step! When I have those edits back I will do MY THING and then it will go out for round two. I bombarded my graphics designer with ideas for the cover last weekend, so that pot is stewing….
Book Three of the Rock and Roll Trilogy (I think this is the first time I’ve revealed the title!!!) – Feel Like Makin’ Love – is in the works. I know the story, beginning to end, now I’m filling in the details.
I also have two other stories in the works for future (I may get my 2012 NaNoWriMo story done by the 6/30/13 deadline in order to claim my ‘WINNER’S PRIZE’! and publish before Book Three and make y’all wait! ha ha!)
AND*** if you know me – really know me – you know I don’t sleep. This morning at four AM I woke up with two paragraphs in my head that I typed out on the iPad for another story (way) in the future. That’s how this whole journey evolved! Andy woke me in the middle of the night and said “I’ve got a story you need to tell!”
I also want to say that I made the right move pulling Rock and Roll Never Forgets from the distributor I was using – LESSON LEARNED – stick with what works…. Since I went back to Kindle exclusively, in one month I have ten times what I had with the ‘other’….
Well… edits are waiting for my attention so I can get through When I Look to the Sky! ‘CARRY’ on peeps.
Love and wishes for a beautiful day, Barbara
I can’t help it – it’s my MANTRA!
