Holiday slow-go

Yes, I'm a slacker. I'm not sure why I've sucked these past few weeks, but I've hardly gotten anything done. There goes getting a book written in two months, LOL! Hopefully after the holidays I'll get back on track. I'm really hoping to after Thanksgiving, but I have a feeling that Christmas will be just as crazy.

Three-quarters of the way done

I just hit 60,000 words on my third novel in the Immortal Guardians series. So, that means that with my minimum total word count goal, I'm 3/4 of the way done! Or if I go with my maximum word count total, then at least I am over 1/2 way done with it. Woo-hoo! Its been hard since I've been sick for the last week and that has completely ruined my energy to do anything, but I'm excited that the book is really coming along.

So excited

I've been sick the last few days with what some call the Zombie Plague Flu aka that crazy cold that is spreading throughout the US and - from what my sister tells me - Scotland. However, that being said, I've been pretty down about being sick because it's meant that I haven't had the energy to write or edit ANYTHING!
But, my day got considerably better yesterday afternoon because a Publisher has requested my FULL Manuscript for Dark Seduction! They have read my query letter (have I mentioned how many times I revised that thing?), synopsis (that has been revised up the wazoo too), and the first three chapters, and still wanted to read the Full!

Okay, breathe, breathe. I'm not getting my hopes up, but this is a huge step in being an author. My foot is at least on the threshold keeping that door wedged open, though I'm not quite through the door yet.

Draven, you better shine for me baby.

*Fingers crossed they like the full story.

A Slacker at her best

At least, that's sort of how I feel. Usually I get a lot of writing done when my wondermous hubby has to work. Well, this weekend I'm spendig cleaning because my house is a complete wreck.

Hopefully I can squeeze in some writing time though because I've got a couple people who are dying to read the 3rd novel in the series, and I'm seriously motivated to write the story.
