Winter Giveaway on Now!!

Don't miss the Winter Giveaway going on now!

Personal/writing update:

This week is going to be insane for me, but I'm ready for it!  I'm attempting to publish "My Summer Vacation by Terrance Wade"as my first self-published piece (novelette/long short story/whatever you want to call it). Working with some awesome people on G+ to get a decently professional cover done.  They've had some amazing feedback.  Also am doing the final edits this week - as well as last minute formatting.

On top of that, Brenda Drake and Company (way too many awesome people to mention them all) are hosting a pitch contest (need to apply to that still)!  I have ten people that I want to submit to, but I need to narrow the list down to three.  I still haven't chosen between Where We Collide (formerly known as Soul Therapy) and RUHE.  Hopefully I'll get some feedback from one of my friends soon which will narrow the choice for me?  Maybe?  (Indecision!)

My other writing goals for December?  Finish Good Criminal Heart the first draft and completely edit Where We Collide.  I wrote the first draft for my NaNo last year and haven't touched it since.  But I love, love, love her story - or rather, fell back in love with it.  So I'm ready to edit it.

Which is why I need to edit it now - in case I do choose it for the Pitch Contest - if it gets chosen, then it needs to be polished.  Or at least, it needs to be in second/third draft form.  :)

Then I move onto The Unanswerable for self-publishing while querying Where We Collide and RUHE.

And I have a tight reading deadline...  These are all self-imposed/due to the fact that I go to the library way too much and bring home way too many books.

I'm reading Dust Lands by Moira Young right now.  On my shelf:  John Dies at the End by David Wong, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Partials by Dan Wells, and Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor.  I'm trying to get through all these this month.

Guys, I'm excited.  I haven't had this many deadlines in a really long time - and I feel kind of accomplished - and stressed out!  It's a good stressed, it means I'm actually doing things!

Hope everyone else is doing well out there!  More updates to come!
