Interview Up

Fallen Angel Reviews interviewed me recently and it’s now up and available. You can read it here. It’s also time for me to get the next installment of The Monthly Grind out so I’ll probably do that tonight. AND I’ve got to pull together my chapter newsletter.

Please note the movement on the word meter at the right! Yes, I wrote yesterday and quite a bit. Got about 3000 words done. Chapters 3 and 4 are complete. I hope I can keep the momentum going. I finally found a hero I love and a story I love. It’s pouring out of me.

A lot of people I know are getting 2-book deals from big houses. I’m very thrilled for them (some of them good friends) and excited and can’t wait to see their names on a book cover. But it makes me sit back and think, “Why not me?”

Maybe because it’s not the right time for my books. Or maybe I’m just not in the right place at the right time. Or maybe I haven’t found the right market yet or the right publisher or the right agent. I don’t know. To say I didn’t haven’t professional jealousy to an extent would be a lie. I do. Don’t get me wrong – I’m totally thrilled for these ladies. But I want it to me be too.

My friend says it will come. I gotta believe it will, too. That’s what keeps me writing and what keeps me motivated to continue to even try to publish. I have so many stories most still in my head. I wonder how fast I can write some of this stuff, how fast I can get my crit partners to look at it, and how fast I can get it in front of an editor or an agent. It’s a time issue. And yes, I still feel like I’m running out of time.

But that’s just how I operate. 😉 Gotta hurry hurry hurry to get to the final point of where I’m trying to go so I can look back and say, “WOW. I did that.”

I went to Starbucks last night and they had the mug I’ve been eyeing on sale for 50% off so I bought it for myself as a reward for hitting the #2 spot on Samhain. Which reminds me! If you’ve read the book, please go review it at their website. You can reach it by clicking here. And much thanks!

Anyway – time for work! Have a great day, all.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
