Currently reading - Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan (TPB)
Since someone keeps searching Google for my latest status update, I thought I'd oblige.*
Blood Magick, the first of the Bloodlines novels, is formatted and almost ready to go live.** One of my critique partners, Jody Payne, is kind enough to do one last read-thru for me. Just need the artwork and I'm good to go.
On the other hand, the cover of my novella, Seasons of Magick: Spring is done thanks to the super-efficient Sierra Acy. (Check out the covers on your right. I'll give you a hint: some of them are Sierra's work.) I, on the other hand, have been slower than molasses getting the edits done. If I could give up the Day Job, the Second Job, or homeschooling GK to finish this project, I would in a heartbeat, but I can't do any of that for various and sundry reasons.
I'll spend some of this week buckling down on those edits, setting up various accounts of e-distributors and praying I can get my issues with PayPal rectified.
But not today.
When I was on the verge of a serious mental episode last week, DH gently pointed out that I literally had not had a day off in several months. I said I had several days in February where all I did was lay on the couch. At which point, DH stroked my hair, looked deep into my eyes and said, "Honey, the flu does not count."
So while you read this, I may be getting my haircut, browsing through a bookstore, eating real Tex-Mex or viewing Sucker Punch at the theater.
Mental health days are totally unnderrated.
