Thirty Days?

I just realized I haven't blogged since January 1st--thirty days. What a weird coincidence. I'll get to that in a moment.

So what have I been doing instead of blogging? Some writing. Not as much as I'd like. The evil day job has been brutal. Being an accountant is bad enough this time of year. Closing the books for the year is a headache. Not that this is the first time I've done it. It is, however, the first time I've been in charge in quite a while.

I knew going back to the old day job and taking the promotion to controller would throw a monkey wrench in my writing. I just didn't realize how much. Thankfully, my friend Brandi Evans is pulling my muse out of the darkness and the numbers.

This month we've gotten back to meeting on weekends to write. Between August and December, I averaged 1500 words a month. Since Brandi's been cracking the whip, I've written nearly 6k words on my new BDSM story in January. *cackle*

Speaking of cracking the whip--and the weird coincidence of thirty days--I'm putting my Liquid Silver novellas, THIRTY DAYS and FOREVER, into print. I'm waiting now on the final proof before it goes into distribution titled FROM THIRTY DAYS TO FOREVER.

The first copy, hot off the press, will be given away in a contest on Lissa Matthew's blog celebrating her birthday. She's having a birthday blog blast for the month of February with some awesome giveaways from a bunch of authors! Check out her blog each day for more information.

January has turned out to be a pretty decent month--except for the 14-16 hour days at the EDJ. Our annual audit is in February so things should slow down after that. Hopefully.

I hope life is treating you gently.

Have a fabulous day!

I cannot believe January is over already, although I feel for you on looking forward to quieter times at the EDJ.
YAY on the 6k, YOU ROCK!!! Props to Brandi on that too, of course.
Have a great February, looking forward to reading more such great news soon! :)
