Tuesday Things

Of late, my life has been reading. And reading. And reading. I have stared at my computer for hours at a time proofing, editing, etc. My stuff. Stuff for other people. My eyes are fried. Cause reading to read is easy, but reading to analyze takes forever and is exhausting. I never want to be an editor full time.

When I'm not editing, I'm writing. Going to be getting my ass kicked on the writing from the next two months. I have three novellas and a handful of short stories all coming due one right after the other, so there's going to be a rather alarming amount of caffeine involved (when is there not, though?).

The giveaway for Treasure will be going up tomorrow. I would have had it ready to go up today, but have been swamped by the aforementioned reading.

Sleep. Never take for granted a good night's sleep. I have had issues sleeping for as long as I can remember. I don't think I did as a kid, but then again, my parents love to tell people the way they'…

I wish I could find the original conversation on LJ, but I remember that I was home visiting my parents and being a shameless bum on their couch. This was several years ago now. Back then, I was still writing for free, and often got roped into doing stuff by my crazy ass friends (<3 <3 <3). One of the random stories they talked me into was about a demon who finds a baby and is forced to take care of it (yes, this did start as a discussion of The Labyrinth). That story is in Magic & Mischief, and is called The Spawn.

The second story started with a mock argument of the age old debate of who would win in pirates vs. ninjas. Somewhere in the mess, it was decided I should just write a story about a pirate and a ninja. Because apparently I can be talked into anything (this is true, I was bored enough one day to write macguyver/bond fanfic. it's on AO3 if you require proof).

Behind the Mask was the result of that particular pwning. Always Masked I wrote much later, for Sasha…

Monday Things

Good morning, peeps. How was your weekend? What are your plans for the week? I spent a good chunk of the weekend making covers and writing.



I also finally did a real cover for Love You Like a Romance Novel, since the other one was never meant to be permanent (and sucked):



For those that missed it, since the weekend is probably the worst time to post anything (I know that's when I'm usually doing everything not related to my computer, I was the last to know it had gone up), my Love is Always Write story is live on the MM GoodReads group ^__^ Much love to them for coordinating the event. Sasha is going to turn ours, and a few others, into the various ebook formats for those that do not want to read on a comp. DL on GR, and eventually we'll put them elsewhere :3

If you want to read mine, it is here. I do hope to expand on it someday, make it a proper novella as it should be. I also have plans for Rene :D

Speaking of books and me, a short story that has been on the serial pag…

Busy Busy Busy :3

I am slowly catching up on all the work that fell by the wayside in the move. The most time-consuming and exhausting of these projects is the print books. I am nearly done with getting them ready, and hopefully by the end of the week I will have ordered proofs for:

Sword of the King
Saving Liam
Deceived
Impractical
Treasure
Burning Bright


We're also ordering stock for those, as well as Vixen and Legend & Lore, which is the compilation of Forest of Fenris and Desert Fire by the lovely TT Kove.

In the near future, I'll also be putting together the prints for Bad Moon Rising, Fairytales Slashed, Volume 4, and Stone Rose.

I'm also pretty certain there's a couple I'm forgetting.

My Love is Always Write story, The High King's Golden Tongue will be posting some time in the next two months to the MM Romance Group on GR. I'm also a goddamn sucker, and tonight claimed a story dropped by someone else. The prompt:
My sister has always been of the romantic sort. She fell i…

So, today is my first day as a free woman. I no longer have a day job, my only chance of paying bills resides exclusively with LT3. Eep. But, I am excited. This means I can devote all my time to the company and to writing, and accomplish more with both.

This week is mostly about catching up on things I have put off and put off because other things were just more important. I will also be trying to catch up on my writing.

So, this week's to do list:




LT3:

*Print books: Kidnapped/Meant to Be, Deceived, Impractical, Lost Gods
*Collector Cards: A ton of them, for various and sundry authors
*Stickers
*Submission calls: Femslash and rockstars (though rockstars won't go out for months yet)
*Business card I'm making for a friend


Writing:

*Sword of the King
*Love You Like a Romance Novel
*Stone Rose
*Made for You
*Untitled Mage/Merc story
*Blood Assistant (notes)
*Bestiary Story (notes)


Other:

I also want to come up with some sort of blog…
