One Of Those Days

I just wrote up a long post and it completely disappeared. No idea how or why. I was going to try to duplicate it, but to be honest, I have to get some real writing done. So I’ll give you a quick summary, you’ll notice a new Sumome pop up on my website to encourage visitors to sign up for my newsletter. (Thank you Tim Grahl for the heads up on this product and for helping me be a little less sucktastic when it comes to marketing my books.) I’ve made a change to my ENDLESS SUMMERS’NEWSLETTER, so that when you sign up you immediately receive a FREE READ in PDF of HEAT OF THE NIGHT. (You get other free reads following the initial one, but they come in the third Welcome Letter. 😉

Anyway, that’s all my news for now. On the reading front, I’m working my way through a Vanguards box set by Tina Folsom. So far I’m really enjoying it. (Confession time: I’ve already read Samson’s Lovely Mortal, but I decided to re-read it since it’s been a while. Up next will be Amaury’s Hellion (bk 2).

Writing and Updating Material

I decided a while back to send ALL my books to a proofreader–even the ones that had been published by New York. It’s been a SLOW ongoing expensive process, but I’m finally down to the last two books. It is disheartening to see how many mistakes she’s been able to find, especially in my professionally published books. I expect one or two, but each manuscript has been way more than that. Nothing that would ruin the reader’s enjoyment, but stuff that makes me cringe like someone scratched a chalkboard.

I’ve been uploading them. Well, most of them. There are still a few that I’m not sure I am going to republish. I think I need to read through them again and see how I feel about the books. If after re-reading them I still don’t think they’re representative of my work, then I’ll keep them unpublished. (And that includes one that was professionally published.)

Anyway, there’s a lot going on IRL right now, so I’ll probably continue to be fairly quiet. Just know that I am working on new stuff, while I wade through the old.
