A hard days night

I finally sent book 3 to my freelance editor last night. I'm hoping it won't have to travel back and forth between the two of us for very long. Edits can be a grueling process and for sure they are a necessary evil.

For writers; Do you dread getting your work back from people who help edit your novel? Are you able to handle critiques well?

For readers; Feel free to ask anything about book 3 or just stop in and say hi!

A day in the life...

Somehow I've managed to write my tail off and have a normal life in the real world this week. Weird, I know.

Usually the only Real World I'm affiliated with is the one left waiting for me on my DVR at the end of the week. But not this week! I went to the mall (my daughter's sad puppy dog eyes may have influenced me) and then to a bonfire where someone actually dragged their christmas tree out and we watched it go up in flames. And you know what? Even though that tree was dry and brittle it took forever for it to go up in flames. For some reason they burn much quicker and cleaner on the news.

Anyway, on the book front, I'm hard at work on the cover for book 3. The title is playing hard to get, so I'll try and pin that one down too. As soon as I have those nailed down I'll post them. Meanwhile if you get a chance, two nice bloggers were kind enough to review Ethereal and Tremble for me.

If you get a chance stop on by and say hello!

So what are you up to in real life? Or, what's in your to-be-read pile for the weekend?

And then it was done

I did it!

I penned the words every author looks forward to in her/his novel, 'the end'.

Awesome, right?

Well, sort of. It's really just the beginning of inhaling countless M&M's, Oreos, Starbucks frapps, and a whole array of countless calories otherwise known as edits. Yes. The beat goes on for the writer long after they hit that final scene. Some of us find it a yummier experience than others.

For writers; Do you feel euphoric or deflated when you hit that final page?

For readers;  When you hit the last page of a good book, do you feel satisfied or sad that it's over?

First draft blues

I'm almost done with the third book in the Celestra series, or at least I will be later today or sometime tomorrow. It's so fun to run as fast as you can when you're writing that first draft, but ironically that's when my brain says it would rather be editing. And of course when I'm editing my brain thinks it would be much more fun to produce the almighty first draft.

For writers; What part of the process do you like best? Writing or editing?

If you're a reader; ask me anything about book 3 if you want. I swear I almost know all the answers. ;)

Calling all Indies!

I really want to celebrate the Indie community, so I'm opening up my blog to all Indie authors who want to introduce themselves and give a shout out to their book or books. Feel free to leave links to your books or whatever other links and info you feel comfortable sharing. =)

I look forward to playing hostess! *passes the M&M's*

Here are some general questions, but add anything you like;

What's your name? What genre do you write in? Titles of your books? Any links you want to share? What's your favorite go-to snack while writing? (of course for me it's chocolate).
