Just a quick summer update. I hope everyone is enjoying your July thus far!
First, get ready! We’re about a month away from the release of The Vampire’s Protege!! I am totally stoked about getting it out there to you, and hearing what you think. The vampires are back, but with a much different twist this time around. The great team at NineStar Press and I just finished the copy editing; next, the proofs arrive – soon! – and then it will be time to gear up for the release. Stay tuned for more information, teasers, and reviews!
Other than finishing that and working on a couple of projects that I’ll share with you later, I’ve spent the last month with family. We always spend the 4th of July weekend with Paul’s family in Michigan, which is a lovely time. This year proved just as fun and special. Chewbacca even decided to make the weekend more exciting but jumping out of the boat in the middle of the lake! Oy. But he had a nice swim, and we rescued him without incident, except that it made his sister, Akasha, quite upset with him!
I took a trip back to Colorado, too, and we’re returning next week. My father is in failing health, so it’s an especially important time to be with family. Sitting quietly with him, and being there for mom, and seeing my family in general – it consumes me a lot right now, in a loving, special, and crucial way. I know that emotion and energy are making their way into my writing, too.
