I am so boring, but currently 100% of my brain power is going to editing space vampires, so here is an assortment of things.
Senior Agent Sarah Younger, who works for Nancy Yost Literary Agency, which represents us, was interviewed about tips for newly signed authors. She has some great advice, especially about the social media.
We are not going on tour for SAPPHIRE FLAMES. There was a tour plan, but it would eat up a big chunk of September, so we bargained with Avon, our publisher, and a deal was reached. We are going to go to Murder By The Book in Houston for the release and we will be attending two Kisscons. Kisscons are conventions sponsored by Avon. The first one will take place in Uncasville, CT, at Mohegan Sun Cabaret Theater on October 26, 2019. More information and an awesome lineup of authors here.
As I mentioned, our brains are fried. I am trying to edit SOB and Gordon is working on the Curran POVs for the collector edition. Yesterday, after having written about 15 pages each, we finally crawled into our pool. We swam around and drank beers. I am on a restricted diet, so alcohol is off the table, but I was really tired. I drank half a beer, found a spot on the shelf, and dozed off a little. My husband decided that this was the perfect opportunity to spray me with a hose, which is quite a bit colder than pool water.
Kid 1, running out of the house accompanied by a pack of dogs: What’s all the screaming? What’s going on?
Me, trying to wrestle the hose away from Gordon: Your dad sprayed me with a hose.
Kid 1: What? I thought there was an emergency! Stop spraying each other. Stop screaming. What’s wrong with you?
Your kids can, in fact, be older than you are.
This morning we are back at work. Or we would be if this stopped happening.
