A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER THAN PLANNED BUT I'M FINALLY BACK
I've had a few things come up to make this post late. I extended my book deadline till the middle of September so writing and editing took up a lot of my time. Then it was Labour Day long weekend and we celebrated my eldest grandson's 18th birthday. I can't believe I have a grandchild that old.
It was nice to have the whole family together, My husband, Mark, had to miss the birthday supper as he's been in England the past two weeks visiting his father who's been unwell for some time. I pick Mark up from the airport tomorrow afternoon. It will be really nice to see him. I've missed him and although I know he does quite a lot around the house and with our pets, I think I forget just how much... till he's not here.
I sent in book four in my Maiden's of The Mystical Stones for editing yesterday. I'm hoping my editor will like Summer's Celestial Plea. It always makes me a bit nervous sending in a new book to be seen for the first time.
September 14/23 is the release date for book five, the last in this series, which is yet untitled. I've been trying to come up with a name but will need to consult with my editor and the Tule team for that.
Today I've been working on a few blog posts and giveaways for Tule's birthday celebration on Sept. 14th and for Autumn's Magical Pact book release on September 26th.
It's been cooler the last couple of days after a really long hot spell. I'm really happy about the cooler weather but not looking forward to winter.
I spent three days last week during that heatwave at a beautiful lakeside B&B. It was a working holiday and I got lots of editing done. It was wonderful to get away. The room was so lovely and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. I really could have stayed so much longer. Thankfully my daughter and granddaughter stayed at our home to look after our dog and two cats. I appreciated that very much.
My younger daughter is redoing/landscaping our front flowerbeds in return for me house/pet sitting for them last month. It's so nice when family can help each other out.
This blog post is kind of scattered with bits of information and as I feared, I had some trouble getting back into how to post blogs at all. I think this might come up in the same blog as the previous one, but I'm working on getting better at this.
I hope you've had a wonderful summer and you're excited for fall. I'd love to hear your comments. Tell me what you have planned for autumn. I'm doing some things for my book launch in September and I'm also beginning book five probably next week. Until next time, magical wishes!
