Good Morning Monday ~ I need a new word for busy LOL

I really do. I say I’m busy and you guys must just roll your eyes and think ‘oh look, she’s whinging again’ LOL but seriously, if I could have ONE day to myself where I don’t have to do fifty different things, that’d be great. LOL

So last week, I managed to do the following:

Finished a first round edit on Nova Praetorian, fixed what I could and double checked a few things. It’s now at 100,100 words. And I’ve sent it off to two very lovely ladies who are well-versed in the Roman era, and I’m both super-excited and equally scared to hear what they think of it. LOL

I’ve finished edits on Private Charter and already have one proofer’s edits done. I’ve been working with the cover artist on the paperback cover and will share with you all as soon as I have it!

I’ve been working on some swag for GRL in October, which I can’t wait to share pics of!

What do I have coming up this week?

I’ll be finishing final proofing edits on Private Charter and will get the ARCs out to bloggers and reviewers.

I also need to start my Christmas short story!  Which I’m kind of dreading, not gonna lie. I’m the least Christmassy kind of person on the planet. I’m not a total scrooge LOL I just find it difficult to get happy about it. It only going to be short so at least that’s one thing. I’m hoping for maybe 10K words.

I can tell you they will be new characters, but that’s all I’m letting slide for now 🙂

So last week, I said Finders Keepers will be going wide (to other retailers), and I have some links for you!!

Needing a change of scene, Griffin Burke moves from Brisbane to Coolum Beach to start a new job. The beautiful white sand, aqua-coloured ocean, blue skies, and summer breezes are everything he longs for. What he finds is a mud-covered dog, lost and hungry, with a nametag and a phone number.
Dane Hughes is stuck in Surfers Paradise at a week-long work conference when he gets a phone call from his distraught mother. His dog, his fur baby, Wicket, has run away. Unable to leave and feeling helpless and miserable, he gets a text from a guy. “I think I found your dog…”
Griffin and Dane start talking, and Griffin agrees to look after Wicket until Dane can collect him. With a few days left before his new job starts, Griffin takes Wicket on some coastal adventures and sends Dane photos of their fun, and so the start of something new and kind of wonderful begins.
Griffin might have moved to Coolum in search of a new life, but what he finds is so much more. What he gets to keep just might take some four-legged help.

Okay so that’s it for this week. A super quick one…  Until next week!
