editing

Great news!

Hi everyone. I know I should crawl out of my hole more often, and I will really try to! I do have some great news to share. I have completed a 390 page paranormal romance novel. Hooray! Now I have to go back through and edit it. Yuck! =) I’ll try to get back into the habit of blogging on an almost daily basis.

I haven’t done a newsletter in a couple of months either, and I’ll work on getting another one of those up by the end of this month to all of you on the mailing list. If you haven’t joined yet, you’ll be eligible to win my drawing plus get a sneak peak of the novel I just completed if you sign up.

This week over at The Deadly Vixens, we’re having The Wild Rose Press week where we’ve interviewed a few of editors and will be having a couple of authors blogging with us. Make sure to check it out!

Well, that’s all I can think of for now.

Updates

Hi everyone! I’m still alive! *grins* Finals week is next week and I’ve been dealing with all of the end of term papers that go along with that. I do have some exciting updates! Today I finished editing one of my novellas, NotT. I’m planning on submitting it as soon as I get my edits into the computer and my CPs have time to get it back to me. Hooray!

I’m so excited that Supernatural is back on tonight! Woohoo! I so love that show!

Tomorrow I’ll be blogging at The Deadly Vixens. Make sure to go over and leave me a comment.

Also, if you haven’t signed up for the mailing list, make sure to do so before the 30th as I will be announcing the winner of this month’s prize for signing up for the mailing list that will occur monthly that day here on my blog, and then sending out my first newsletter on May 1st (also announcing the winner there) with an excerpt from my newly edited novella and more! =)

Hi everyone! Today was my guest blogging day at Michelle Pillow’s blog…. http://www.michellepillow.com/blog. Also, tomorrow I will post a flash fiction story at The Deadly Vixens’ author blog, so make sure to check it out! http://www.deadlyvixens.blogspot.com/ It was a lot of fun to write and paranormal. Woohoo!

Things have been busy around my household. Also busy with writing related things. I have gotten 1.5 pages edited on my current WIP, which isn’t the best, but it’s fairly good. Not too much else I can think of right now! It’s bedtime! =)

Today has been quite a day! I finished my first round of edits for MOL and sent them back to my editor. Now I’ll be waiting to see what she thinks of them. Woohoo! I also worked on my book trailer for MOL. Yippee! So far it’s looking good, in my humble opinion! I still have a few things to edit and tweak with it before I’ll post it, but there shouldn’t be too long of a wait.

Also, for those interested, I will be participating in the Dragon’s Den radio program for Passionate Internet Voices Talk Radio on March 4th at 8 p.m. EST. The link is http://www.pivtr.com.

And then I will be participating in a chat at Romance at Heart Magazine for Firedrakes Weyr authors on March 11th at 8 p.m. EST. The link for that is http://chat.romanceatheart.com/.

That’s all I can think of for now!

Cover Art

Boy! It’s been a while since I have last blogged. I’ll have to not let such a large time span between postings happen again. Seems like just yesterday was St. Valentine’s Day.

Now on to my current news: Hooray! I finally got my cover art done today. It looks nice, too! Even goes well with my website. =) I’ll post more about that when I can.

On the editing front, I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it’s been a challenge with this work, MELODY OF LOVE. I can’t wait to finish it.

That’s all for now though. It’s been a long day.

Hi everyone. Sorry it’s been so quiet recently. My family has been sick and so I’ve been recovering and taking care of them. I’ve also been entranced by an amazing XBOX 360 game, Assassin’s Creed. The graphics are wonderful… beautiful… the music is as well. The story was fascinating and made me want to know more, and it was all done fantasically! I’m so sad that the game is over. I loved it and can’t wait until Assassin’s Creed 2 comes out.

As for the writing front, I received my edits for my manuscript MELODY OF LOVE. I’m excited about that and have begun editing it. My first editor revisions! Hooray!

Not too much new to discuss besides from the fact that classes have started again at my university. I can’t wait to graduate though, which will be upon finishing my summer semester. Yippee.

I have been submitting a children’s picture book. I received five rejection letters and a request for more information. I really hope something comes about with the request for more information! Or one of the other fourteen query letters out there. Three are about at the time when I’m guessing it’s a “no response means rejection” kind of thing, but…the way I feel is that a rejection just means that I’m putting myself out there, so I don’t take them too personal. I do feel a little bit of frustration at first, but then I pick myself back up and push on. Hooray!

Not too much else I can think of. I’ve been trying to work on my writing project and my editing project, but for the past two days not much has been happening. Ugh. I had wanted to write today, but then I got an injury and rested instead. There’s always tomorrow (today since it’s 12:34 AM)!

Hello everyone! My website and blog got a matching makeover, so check it out! Let me know what you think. My goal for the month is to finish my nanowrimo novel (started in November), and also to get my nanowrimo novel from 2005, which is finished, completely edited. I’ll have a page counter over on the side so that you can see how many pages I have edited of it.

I want this year to be a very productive one. Perhaps this will be the year where I’ll transcend the pre-published status, and become a published author. Hooray!

hooray

I am almost done with editing my novel. I have approximately 26 pages to go. Hooray! Then I’ll be able to start submitting it to agents and editors. I’m so excited. I’ll give more information on that as it happens.

Also, I’m almost finished with the page of what I did on my trip. I’ll try to have it up on my website by Tuesday. (There is one version up on it now that my husband wrote, but I have some corrections to add.) Sorry for the delay on that. It’s been pretty hectic recently.

Well, I’m off to bed as soon as I print out these last few pages of my novel to edit tomorrow.

Night.

Okay, here’s a new post at long last. The editing is taking me way long than I’d expected, but I’m 41% of the way through. Hopefully I’ve caught on to a decent pace now. I’ll post a blog within the next few days about my trips due to much interest from Vicki and Erica. =) Not too much else I can think of.

Night.
