WIP Day - Lady Justice Update

As promised, I am back today with an update post about LJ.
Well, mostly an update.  In ways.  Okay, you see...

I thought doing the paper edit would be easy to accomplish during the move.  Boy, was I wrong.  I have to admit: I haven't even opened in.  I look at it often.  I even pick it up.  I think about it all the time.  But for some reason, I haven't cracked it open and begun the red process.

If you read my post yesterday, you might have an idea that I feel a bit out of sorts right now.  We are in the limbo stage of the move, and it has been hard for me to even sit down and casually read a book.  In less than two weeks, we will be in our apartment.  And things will change.

Here are my plans.

  • Move into new home.  We won't have internet right away.  Which means less distractions.  And excuses. Which of course means... 
  • Get this paper edit done!  By no later than the end of June.  Sooner if all works out right.
  • Go through and plug in all the beta reader edits and feedback.  I love my beta readers.  I really do. *hugs all around*
  • Edit edit edit edit...

Due to the changes in my life and hectic nature of it all, LJ's publishing date has been pushed back a smidge. I was originally aiming for beginning of August.  It is now looking more like a September release.  Which technically is still summer.  Right?  Who knows, if things go great it might be faster.  But just to give you all an estimated time to rush to the computers and order your copy: September.  Mark it.

In the next week or two, I will finally show off the cover for LJ.  I am just making my final tweaks and changes.  My amazing sister-in-law once again did a beautiful job with the cover image, and I want to do it as much justice as I can.  (Okay, which means I am just super picky and judgmental of my work.  I will be honest.  No hiding that.)

There you have it.  Are you excited?

Happy Writing!

I Still Exist!

Oh my goodness, I don't even want to look at the last time I posted.
*shakes head in shame*

Hello! Hi! Howdy and good day!
I know it has been a long time since you have heard from me.  In case you might have forgotten: my family moved.  Moving from one home to another is a task of its own.  But when it is across an entire state... well, let's just say life as gotten hectic.

I love being back in the place I was born and raised.  It is gorgeous here, and I am inspired every single day.  So why the lack of awesome blog posts and crazy editing you ask?

Long story short: We have yet to move into our new home.  A month ago we packed up and left Oregon.  And since then, my family of four have been living in a mini Winnebago in my dad's back yard.  We mostly use it just has a bedroom and are able to use the house for everything else.  I have even been able to set up my computer in my dad's living room in an attempt to get work done.  Regardless, not a whole ton of work has been achieved.  There is something about not being in "your place" that makes settling down and getting any task done.

Have I mentioned how rock hard my bed is?

We move into our apartment in less than two weeks.  And boy am I excited!  It is a three bedroom which means *drum roll please* I GET MY OFFICE! AH!  After nearly four years of being a dining room writer mama, I not only get a dining room back, but I get my very own office as well.  With a door.  That I can hide behind.  And lock.

But that is a little under two weeks away.

Tomorrow I will post an update (in a way) about LJ and what is going on with it.  So make sure you check back then!  And now, I am off to exercise and get this lazy bum moving!

A view from where I am. Gorgeous, right?

Happy Writing!
