Wow! Actual comments on my first post. 🙂 I feel loved! I guess it’s time for a second one.
Yes, yes, I know. I’m going to have to get more creative with my blog titles. There is just no room in my head for that yet between all of the reading about book marketing, and finishing editing, and beginning the second book, and KIDS. Oh yes, my house is overflowing with children. My own Little Goose has been quite socialized this week with her cousin visiting from Nebraska (and MAN, does that girl have a social life for a nine-year-old who spends all of one week a year in the state! She has more friends here than I do.)
Aside from the Fantastic Cousin K, and her entourage, Little Goose has been spending time with my nephews, AND the kids that I watch, AND daily playdates with our sweet little neighbor. Our little home is one hopping place these days, and it’s wonderful.
At some point, I am probably going to have to attack Mount Laundrymore and actually do some folding, and the sand situation on the front porch is becoming desperate — I think I saw a camel poking around out there last night. (FWIW – a sand table is NOT a tidier option than a sandbox. Nor does it stop any small child from sitting in the sand and getting it inside his or her diaper/underwear) For right now, though, I’m just grateful to actually be completely absorbed with things that make me feel good and right and happy. It’s the first time in a long time, and it is amazing.
My first book, Dusk Gate: Seeds of Discovery is in the exceptionally fun stage – revising! (No, really… I’m a compulsive editor/reviser — THIS is the fun part for me.) I’ve even seen some preliminary work for cover design. And, I’m in the middle of the first chapter for the second book. These days, I wish I didn’t need to sleep.
Thank you so much for the comments on my first post! Kristy, I’m on my way over to your blog in a few minutes! www.kristykjames.com
Soon, I promise I’ll be reading The Reluctant Guardian
— it’s my very next non-book marketing/designing/editing read!
