Wow, it has been a while since I posted something on my page. I’ve been on vacation a lot and wasn’t writing, it was also a lot harder to get writing done with my son home. I have enjoyed having others over to share their work and don’t forget to check out the Guest Posts the latest one by Shay Stone Never Give Up is quite inspirational, go on over and check it out. Next week we will be having someone over that is publishing a new book, be sure to check it out too!
I have been able to get in a first week of writing in. My son goes to Summer Camp during the day and I get to clean in the morning and write in the afternoon. It has been awesome. I have started and finished a short story that is exclusively for those attending the Literary Love Savannah conference that is going on right now. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t get it done in time. After they contact me with their special code I will be releasing the short story to everyone. The release date of that will be September 1st. I will give you the title You Belong With Me. It will be my first new story, to be released in a long while.
I am still working on my Kat and the Cursed full length novel, I have shortened it just to Cursed. What do you think of the name change? If you’d like to read snippets from this work in progress check out my Snippet Sunday section. There are four so far 4/22, 4/29, 6/2, and 7/22, I’m going to do one more with this book before I switch to You Belong With Me on Snippet Sundays.
I have discovered that it is extremely hard to make your own covers (for me at least anyway). Thankfully I have made some friends and I was able to get in touch with a professional that is reasonably priced. I am still going to mess around with pictures and try to learn on YouTube how to make my own but for now I’m happy to help out others with their business and get covers made by them. The one I have for Cursed is beautiful, I’m not showing it though until I’m getting ready to release it so you’ll just have to wait. Currently I am trying to figure one out for You Belong With Me.
Speaking of those websites, I have a list of them, some free, some you have to pay for. If anyone needs a copy of it just let me know I’ll email it over. I have complied it from different authors giving me them so that I can try to start making my own Covers.
That’s it for this week, how have you all been? Do anything fun this summer? Leave a message in the comments with any interesting tidbits you want to share!
