Time for the monthly roundup and look ahead:
June was, again, all about working on revisions and edits on To the Gap. This book is longer than books 2 and 3, (over 60,000 words, while Bad Hunting and The Rancher's Daughter are under 50,000) so it's taking longer to finish it. I also finished the A-Z Reading Challenge (see the previous post
for the final installment) and I'm now back to reading whatever I feel
like. Finally, the month ended with a bang with a bunch of dental work.
My mouth still hurts, but at least we addressed the problems before they
got bad enough to require root canals.
Coming up in July: the release of To the Gap,
though probably a little later than I had anticipated. A week ago
Sunday, our older son and his fiancee informed us that they've moved
their wedding up from this fall to the middle of this month. They aren't
having a big huge fancy deal, but there's at least one wedding-related
event in addition to the wedding we'll need to be at, and it's all out
of town (though only 100 miles up the freeway), which means a couple of
road trips. So that has thrown a slight hitch into my work schedule, but
I'm working as hard as I can to still get the book out as soon as I can
without compromising the quality. I know there are at least a few of
you waiting for it, and I don't want to keep you waiting too long! Of
course, we're thrilled and delighted for our son and his fiancee, and
excited to have our family grow. Maybe best of all, she has an
absolutely precious 2-year-old daughter, so we get an instant grandchild
out of the deal :-D
All other projects are on hold while I get through this busy time and try to keep to my release schedule.
