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


  1. Try not to think about the fact that the book is on pre-order and focus on other writing. That usually works for me when I get nervous and jittery :-P

    I hope both your submissions will be accepted!

    Oh wow, you have my book downloaded with Megan's and Sasha's. Now you've really got me nervous here! *feeling rather jittery* I do hope you like it. ;-)

    I should really get back to writing too! Struggling with a scene as of now, and instead of wrestling with it, I'm avoiding it. :-P

    1. Squee, that was adorable!! And the perfect way to entertain myself while waiting for yet another dr's appointment to start. ^^

      I've gotten quite good at avoiding scenes I'm struggling with; my sudden influx of fairytales proves that. XD And my level on this stupid game my roomie got me addicted to.
