PLUS, I've got this novel I'm trying to get out in August. The final revisions are going great, just slowly. It'll be my first full-length novel, so I'm trying to really get it JUST right. (Cue the thieving blonde tramp and the hungry bears! Seriously, who steals food from bears anyway?!)
I'm also working on new Moonsongs stuff. (A spinoff short story for one of my characters, Marshal, is coming soon!) And I've also been busy over at New Adult Alley. We recently decided to divide an conquer, and I'm now working mostly on the website side of our operation You can sign up for our fantastic newsletter HERE if you're dying to have me show up in your inbox on occasion. :)
Then, there has been a lot of travel lately. We attended a wedding in South Carolina last week, and were away for a week prior to that for a vacation trip up the northern coast of California.
Here are some pics from those trips:
|This guy was hanging out on the golf course near where we stayed in South Carolina!|
|I spotted him while riding a bicycle around the island.|
|This pooch had epic drool issues! LOL He was cursing around Charleston, SC.|
|More Charleston scenery.|
|More Charleston scenery.|
|View from our No Cal hotel room!|
|There's a bird standing on top of the rock. :)|
|The seals had their pups out sunning with them. :)|
|My wife taking in the view on our bike ride. :)|
|We took a train ride through one of the redwood forests.|
|Sunlight through the trees.|
|At the feet of giants. :)|
|The trees were so tall I couldn't get far enough away to photo an entire one, so I improvised, and shot looking up from the base. :)|
All together, I kind of just lost track of the blog. But I'm back now. :)
Speaking of blogs, I bumped into one of my favorite author-bloggers (Eve of The Desert Rocks & Intangible Hearts blogs) at our New Adult Lit Chat last night, and it made me realize how much I missed y'all!
So what's coming in this blog space? Details on great new releases and covers from my author friends, more of my thoughts on this writing adventure we're on, and I'll be incorporating a lot more of what we're doing over at NA Lit Chat (#NALitChat on the Twitters).
I've been remiss sharing all of my work over there, here. But so much of what we talk about can be applied to all kinds of writing and authors--not just New Adult--so I want to include y'all in that as much as possible from here on out.
Specifically, I wanted to pass along the transcripts from our chat last night. We had a couple of fantastic authors on as guests (Lynn Rush & Nazarea Andrews) to talk about book launches and share their tips & tactics.
Be sure to keep a pen and paper handy as you listen along (and read tweets), because there are a lot of useful things you'll want to stash away.
You can keep up with everything we've got cooking at the chats HERE.
Hope you've all been doing great, and I'm looking forward to reconnecting. Have a great weekend!
