Well hello my bloggie friends! Feels like it's been forever and I sure have missed you! But I needed some time off to finish up my current first draft.
You could say I'm experiencing a bit of first draft euphoria, and I'm well aware of its dangers. First time I heard the term was at a SCBWI regional workshop, when bestselling YA author Nancy Werlin explained she was in the middle of it with a WIP, when a CP (critique partner) made a list of all the things that weren't working and burst the "euphoric" bubble.
That's about where I am. Just sent my story off to my CP, and even though I'm in love with it, I have no doubt there's much to be fixed, revised, nipped and tucked. So as I wait to receive all those red ink revisions, I'll be hopping around visiting blogs, seeing what everyone's up to ....
Then it's back to the writing cave.
As of today, I have approximately 4 weeks til school's out for summer and my precious writing time ceases to exist. So I'll be milking May for all it's worth.
My posts will be sparse this month, but I'll have some great info up for you towards the end. And in the meantime, I wanted to share some new releases:
From Brandon Ax, a YA urban fantasy. Click on the cover to purchase from Amazon.
And from D.J. Swykert, a murder mystery thriller. Click on the cover to get to Amazon for purchase details!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be posting again later this month, but in the meantime, I'm looking forward to hearing from you and seeing what you've been up to on your blogs.
Are you familiar with any of these titles? Are you a victim of First Draft Euphoria? Ready for the new Star Trek in theaters this Friday?? How's your May going? Spill it all in the comments ....
