Changing Fall

Okay, so yesterday in my opinion, was the start of autumn with the change in clocks. After the nice sunny weather I woke up to, it later rained for a couple of hours-hard-before the sun came out again.

Ah, yes, the ever changing weather.

But, enough of weather. I finally got copy edits today. I figure that while everyone else will be watching election returns Tuesday night, I'll be at the computer reading my story for the umpteenth time.
The joys of writing...you read the same thing over and over and over....

No wonder some authors say that once they see the last of their manuscript they push it out of their mind. :)

Right now I have some ideas percolating in my head. I think the cooler weather tends to do that to me. Sort of like wanting to read when Winter sets in because you can't do things outside.

Happy Reading and Writing everyone!

November is here........

I know...once again it's been a while since I posted. I was busy constantly over at the Romance Reviews Today blog giving away books and more books. :)

But things should now quiet down and I hope to be able to write more, both on my WIP's and on the blog.

Speaking of blogs, I've started a new one for Holli Winters, but not much to report since I still don't have my cover.

Fall has finally come to my area. Friday it rained and the leaves just dropped like dead flies onto the ground. Wet and not so pretty. Up until then, it'd been beautiful watching the fall colors on the trees. Woke up yesterday morning to fog, but today it's sunny and looking good outside. Spent the afternoon and evening catching up on writing reviews, but yah, that's looking good.

Best of the bunch of books I read for review was Marly Mathew's Do or Die.

What am I reading? Right now an Elaine Fox book for review Bedtime for Bonsai, one of her doggy books. (yes, it is a romance for humans!)

I bought a Amazon Kindle and got it Wednesday. Still trying to figure it all out, but I did figure out how to email ebooks I already have to it. Have Cara Carnes' newest ebook, Weekend Games on it, ready to read.

Next weekend I have a four day weekend, with Saturday-Tuesday off. I will certainly use that time to good use. :)

And hopefully blog more.

All Dressed Up and Places to go.....

An author's journey to publication includes those dreaded edits from your editor. I got mine last Saturday and plugged away at them for several days. My editor suggested some changes, including some for clarity and pacing, so that meant I needed to do more than fix grammar, etc errors. Of course, once I hit send Tuesday night that meant a probable second round...

I got the email the other night...NO SECOND ROUND OF EDITS!

I whooped it up and celebrated for the night. That is great news. Of course, it is now in the hands of the copy editor, who can suggest changes, but yahhh, the biggest hurdle is over.

This and that.....

Cara's interview will post on Thursday at the RRT blog. Check it out here.

I got my release date for A Christmas Wish..... December 5th! As soon as I have a cover, I will start working on the new website for Holli Winters. You can see it here now, but there is not much. :) As expected, Whispers Publishing wanted a Christmas themed story released in time for...Christmas!

I've just finished the first round of edits and am getting more and more excited.
