No whining because I actually accomplished a lot this week! And I made my writing goal of 3k. Okay, barely. 3075 words but what the hey, it's progress!
Plus, I received not one but two critiques back this weekend. Friday night and Saturday, I reviewed the comments on book four in the Tennessee Cops series. And I subbed it to my Ellora's Cave editor Saturday night! One down. For now!
Late Saturday night, I received comments on the revise and resubmit I was working on. I worked through them today and another submission away! Woo hoo!
Also, I received the cover for the second book in the Angel Moon Trilogy, SHROUDED ANGEL. I have a release date of September 3rd!
Terra offers sanctuary to both Angellum and Virkola. Unknown to the humans, a truce exists there. To Terrans, the two species exist as myths. One is a frail, winged creature from religious texts. The other, a demon of the night, living off blood. Both are far from the truth…
Because of the Angellum, Patrea, a Virkolan, has spent his life afraid of loss. When darkness descends on his ship in the form of a strange angel, Patrea feels he can’t stay on the Avere. But departing would mean leaving behind the only light in his life—his bunkmate Hadreal. He needs to find the courage to tell Hadreal how he feels.
Hadreal has always felt more than friendship for his younger bunkmate, but bitter past experience keeps him from acting on his feelings. When a new danger brings them closer, he decides it might be time to live again. But now his chance at happiness may end before he’s able to sample it.
Sometimes it takes a brush with death to make life worth living.
So goals for this week? Well, I'm not getting too confident with one victory! I've had too many failures on my goals lately. So I'm going to try it again...
Goal for this week:
1) 3k words.
I have the EDJ at least three days but the other two are taken up with Momma stuff on Wednesday and Granny stuff on Thursday. I might get some writing done after my duties are done. However, I might need to work from home on EDJ stuff. I'll have to wait and see.
Next weekend will be my main writing days. I don't know if it's the new desk being more comfortable or the fact I'm sleeping more but I've been able to stay at the computer longer this past week. This gives me hope for writing in the evenings but I can't count on it.
Yes, the CPAP machine seems to be doing the trick. I'm even dreaming almost every night. Woo hoo! Although I feel like Darth Shayla... Check out the getup... Now if that doesn't give you nightmares, I don't know what will! *cackle*
Have a fabulous week!
