Just finished, and submitted, my taxes!  Hurrah for being way ahead of the game this year and not procrastinating until April *coughs* like last year.  So now that that's out of the way, back to writing when I should be sleeping. XD  I've got a meeting with one of my writer's groups later too...huh, maybe I should put the characters to bed and flop into my nest next to my Tonkie kitty...he looks lonely all curled up in my nest all alone...right, bed time for me, so I can be all bright eyed and bushy tailed for some serious writing at Panera later...mmm Panera....

I'm an author, officially

For those of you who haven't had to live with my daily lunacy, and somehow missed this, Rock 'n Roll Seraphim was released to wide world of ebooks yesterday.  And as of today is readily available via Less Than Three, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon; which means I am officially, no holds barred, an author.  The lack of customers in my store today were very confused when I was unable to hold in my glee at being able to search myself on the in-store system.

To celebrate this occasion, and a more personal one, I decided to go out and get a new tattoo, because I'm that sort of person.

Isn't it pretty?
Hmm, other than that, been writing, writing, writing.  Solved my inability to edit my NaNo'12 by completely changing the POV it was written in.  Yay for being able to work on it, but boo for the massive pile of work I just created for myself. XD

I know I'm forgetting things, but I'm ridiculously tired, so I'm going to bed, and will have another update over the weekend.

Pre-order, writing, and general nonsense

Rock 'n Roll Seraphim is now available for pre-order up on the LT3 site!  I can't even begin to describe the nervous jitters, and niggling feeling of doubt, that are dancing through me right now.  I'm super excited to be able to officially tell all of my relatives, that yes, I am a published author, and no, they probably won't approve of the content/theme/etc of what I've written, and am going to continue to write; but you know what?  It doesn't matter what they think in the end, because I'm ecstatic, and I'm doing what I've always dreamt of doing, so family, if you're reading this, I love you all, but yes, I do write stories about boys falling in love with other boys.  Sometimes more than one at a time even!

*coughs* Right, back to our regularly scheduled blog...

I've been slowly continuing to work on editing and fixing up my NaNo, but the boys, and the world, are being quite the pain in the arse.  And to be honest, my productivity this week has been really bad.  I don't think I've managed to write more than 5000 words total in between doctor's appointments, retail madness, and this stupid My Little Pony game my roomie got me addicted to.  XD  But I did send out a silly little short that's vaguely Valentine's Day themed, and am still awaiting the verdict on my other submission still out there.

In book reading related news, I've been rereading Mira Grant's Newsflesh trilogy and assorted novellas, because I can always use a good cry over someone else's characters.  Mm, my pre-ordered purchases of The Glass Coffin by Megan Derr, Retirement by Sasha L Miller, and How About a Boyfriend? by TT Kove are downloaded and ready to be devoured; so expect some babbling about those three next time. :3

Other than that, we're prepping at work for some pretty big name authors in the next couple of months:  Brandon Sanderson, Robert Crais, Tahereh Mafi, Veronica Rossi, and Peter V Brett.  The bibliophile in me is thrilled to be able to have a chance to meet some of my authors, but the still exhausted from the holidays retail slave in me is, well, still exhausted. XD

I could swear I had more to babble about, but I'm pulling up a blank, so I guess I'll just get back to editing and writing, instead of procrastinating and blogging. :P

Sick but alive

Well, a week in and not much to say. I've spent all 7 days sick with some horrid plague that's caused me to lose my voice twice now. Lacie's not an amused author/retail slave. Have a drs appointment tomorrow to try to make the plague leave me alone.

Regardless of plague, I've written what I think is a freaking adorable fairy tale. It's goofy and cheesy, and has been freakishly fun to play with.

Course, I'm also working on editing 'Message in a Bottle'; my nano from this past November. And trying to ignore a dozen rampant plot bunnies bounding around in my head.

In reading worlds, I've stared Libba Bray's most recent novel, The Diviners; and am rereading Feed. I know, I know, I read it every year, but I do enjoy revisiting my favorite worlds; plus, I can still have fun and get writing done.

I'm off to dinner now, but I'll be back next week; promise.

<3 Lacie
