Now that my head is beginning to get screwed back on correctly, I've spent some time in my email inbox and realized how much stuff I was supposed to do this week and haven't. For instance, working on the edits for "A Change Of Heart", my cowboy story coming with the Wild Rose Press. I emailed my editor and explained. There were some other editing issues and some website stuff and bills... none of which were addressed this week.
I hate being late or feeling incompetent. I suspect I'm going to be VERY busy for the next few days. I hope I can find the time to get done what I need to.
I've also decided to expand my story "Kitchen Matches" (yanno, the one that was rejected last month) because I think it will be a much more fun and strong story if I do and I have some ideas of some (hopefully) entertaining scenes to add. We'll see how it goes. Who knows? Maybe I'll end up with another novel length story to tell...
I bought "Blood Brothers" by Nora Roberts this week. I'm about halfway through it. It's pretty creepy and not as "romancy" as her usual work. Still, I'm really enjoying it (except for one head-hop we did for two paragraphs into the hero's father's head -- I can deal with leaping between H/H, but secondary characters make me nutty). When I finish, I'll post my review at the LASR reviews blog.
BTW, did anyone go look at the review posted on Wednesday? It's a great book, and you can win it! Go check it out... just click on that link above.
Did anyone besides Dru read my short story at LASR yesterday? It's VERY similar to how I met my DH... the funny thing was, Womans World rejected it for being unrealistic. LOLOL!
