Makes you go hmmm..., On Writing, Saturday Status, submissions

Saturday Status-September 6, 2014

What I’m doing now:

Look up at your tab, assuming your browser has tabs. Do you see the little icon up there? Now if you have twenty tabs open, you can tell which one is for my site! Unfortunately, I had to get help in getting it up there, but I like seeing it, so yay!

What I’m writing now:

I just submitted the proposal for HUNGER UNTAMED to my editor. (It will be book 3 in what I’ve called the Vampire Hunger series.) Keep your fingers crossed that Carina wants to publish it. While I wait on a response, I’m continuing to write the rest of the story. I’m anticipating it will be 95,000 words when done.

I’m also part of an upcoming boxed set and need to dust off a story that I’d written for a submissions call, but wasn’t accepted. (In retrospect, thank goodness. I totally dodged a bullet.) Hopefully more news soon about this!

What I’m reading now:

I’d accidentally bought book 12 of Kresley Cole’s Dark Immortals series. ZOMG! Where has she been all of my life!? After reading that one, I immediately when out and bought the next two. Plowed through those and bought another three. Steamrolled through those and bought another two. What? Don’t judge me! The only reason I’d stopped buying is my credit card was still smoking from the rapid purchases. lol  Although I’m actually in between books, I wanted to give a shout out to the series. If you’re looking for a highly entertaining paranormal series, get to reading.

Other Bits & Pieces…

I just want to throw this out there:

Dear New Author,

I know that your first contract offer is VERY exciting. However, if someone who’s been there/done that is urging caution, there’s probably good reason for it. If one publisher wanted your story, I promise that another one will want it too. Take your time before making this decision. You only get to be a first time author once.

Love,
