I have to admit the last few years it’s been
impossible difficult to surprise dh on his birthday. But this year I finally got him. I bought him gifts that he didn’t expect, but has been wanting for a while. I really wanted this birthday to be a great one. He’s been having a tough time at work (like a lot of people) and he really needed cheering up. I made him the cake he wanted (a Victoria Sponge cake with butter cream frosting). It turned out pretty good, but boy is it RICH. So rich you can barely get through one piece. I don’t think we’ll end up finishing it. 😳
Now that I’m done with the Dead World trilogy, I’m going back to work on editing the Blaze. I’m also trying to clean off my shelves (and drawers). This means that a lot of books are going. I’m trying to be ruthless. I know I’ve tried before and failed, but I think this time is different. I’d really like space for ‘my’ published work on the shelves and right now I don’t have any. I’ve already filled three boxes and have started a fourth. My intention is to get several boxes together and make a trip to the library. I figure they could probably use some of these books because they’re new. 🙄 I’m also going through my reference and writing books. I’m taking a close look at them to see which ones truly help and which ones probably won’t. If they aren’t in the help pile, then they go. The garage will come next once I finish this task.
Are you doing any spring cleaning? Information cleansing? Etc.
The contest to win an ARC of SCARLET is still happening. Just let me know you want your name tossed into the hat. Now I’m off to cull more books.
