It’s Been A Killer of a Month

in I'm kind of a big deal. not really., life

I had this great topic (for other writers) dreamed up this month (actually last month, but I digress), but it’s been one of those months.

I finally finished the second book I had to revise and submitted it to my publisher. Edits for the first (which is being published June 20!) should arrive any day. We had an Open House and Formal Dance here this week with the kids and my daughter’s last day of Cosmetology school was Wednesday.

And I wasn’t there because my husband had to have surgery WAY out of town. And, so of course, we took her out Monday to celebrate. A surprise party with cake then sushi.

It’s been a hell of a month. In just ten days, my daughter and I will be making our way to Arkansas, by way of Nashville (where we will spend the night, going and coming, because I can’t drive that long in one go), to spend a week. She’s meeting up with a friend and I’m spending several days holed up with my critique partner, where I will be slaving away at the third Infamous novel.

No, you didn’t miss the second one. I just submitted it. Cross your fingers, please, that the publisher likes it.

So, here’s a gif of Princess Leia because she’s my hero.

I’m going to take a deep breath and remind myself that things will eventually settle down.

Busy times, Lori. Hope your husband’s surgery went well. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you’re offered another contract on your next book. Good luck with your release in June.

Thanks so much, CB. I’ve always said that I’d rather be busy than bored so I guess I got what I wanted.
