RHR Series and other things.

I’ve decided to add a short story to the Rolling Hills Books, this one is going to be Ma and Pops story. I think told in a series of flashbacks through Pop’s eyes. I’m not very far into it yet. I’ve been also working on another book that I’ve rewritten at least 10 times. I also have at least one for full length book for the Rolling Hills stories. This one is to cover Joe’s story. I need to make myself focus on those two before I continue with others. I would love to have a complete series for sale at AAD in Aug. of 2014 though honestly that doesn’t give me much time.

I’m starting school soon so I’m sure homework will take up any extra time I have, which isn’t much. I have so much respect for moms that are stay at home moms. I’ve been doing it just a month and still haven’t gotten a good grove going. We are working on it though.

I do have a new book that I’m submitting to a publishing company that hopefully will like it. My beta readers seemed to enjoy it, the ones that have gotten back to me so far anyway. Well time to get everything in line to submit it to the publishing company.

AAD in one week

I am getting very excited about my AAD weekend coming up. Just one week I will be headed with my good friend Diane Merlin to Philly to hang out with a great bunch of people. Some¬†I know from last year, some I have yet to meet, all have one thing in common – we LOVE to read! AAD (Author’s After Dark) is the first and only con that I have gone to. I am not good with people however last year (being my first year this there) everyone was wonderful and welcoming. I was a reader last year and was so exctied to meet so many wonderful writers. This year I will be able to talk to people about my books which is exciting in itself but I will never be over being excited just to meet so many writers that have been where I am now, just starting out. Everyone is willing to give great advice and talk to you at this con. The person running the show Stella is a wonderful woman who makes sure that she invites writers that are willing to do just that. She knows without readers there would be no writers. She sets up tons of fun things to do and always at least has one dance for us. This year there’s two. I will be posting pic as I already have of last years AAD however this year I will have better ones. Last year being my first one I was in my room quite a bit this year I am determined to join in the late night fun (so look out here I come). If you are coming to AAD feel free to look me up and say hi. Even if you don’t read my stuff (or you think my stuff isn’t that great) I’ll still talk to ya. ūüėČ Well off to finish my book that¬† I want to pitch at the agent/editor appoiments that Stella has managed to set up again this year. If your looking for a good con as a reader or writer this is the one for you. Next year it in New Orleans!
