One of *Those* Posts

Since the epic release of book 6, Children of Shadows, I haven’t been around very much. I’d apologize, but there are only so many hours in the day. Besides, I doubt anyone cares that much. For those who do care, or who find these chatty “what I’ve been doing post” interesting, well, this one’s for you.

Legacy of Ghosts is still participating in Cover Wars until the end of May, so if you get a chance stop by and vote. You can vote once a day, every day.

I’ve been working on Clash of Legends, the seventh book in the Amaranthine series. You can keep track of where I am on the rough draft by looking at that cool progress meter to the right – the one that has a little bean with legs on it. Why is he a bean? I have no idea, but I thought it was fun. As of this posting I have just started chapter seven of Clash of Legends. It’s going to be a very exciting chapter and I hope to have the whole book done by the end of the year.

We’re still settling my mother-in-laws estate. I know. You’d assume everything was done by now, but hardly anything is. It’s very frustrating for all of us.

We’re in the process of *maybe* buying a house. We are going to buy a house, but we’ll see if it’s the one we’re currently looking at or if we need to keep looking. Unfortunately, we’re looking at houses in South West Iowa, which makes looking at them, signing papers, etc. a huge pain in the but because it means running to Iowa all the time (a six hour trip one way) and so I lose the whole weekend every time we go. (And don’t even ask me about what the cell signals are like, not that my new phone has enough available data to make it worth trying).

If we do go for this house I’ll be gone a lot more with packing and such, and then when we close the house needs some immediate work, so I’ll disappear to do that… yeah, everything is kind of up in the air right now, but just settled enough to be a pain in the butt. I have a pile of projects stacked up to get to some day and a bunch of book covers I need to try to catch up on… but hey, I’m still alive, so that’s what counts.

Not sure I can say the same for all of my characters 😉 signature for white

  1. Is it bad that my first thought was, “Where’s the next Amaranthine book?” No, seriously, it sounds you have a lot going on. I’m surprised you have any time to write at all. Good luck getting everything settled. Thanks for posting an update.

    • I wish I could get un-busy… I have even had to stop taking new cover clients. This house stuff is way more involved then I thought it would be…

  5. I’m sorry your plate’s still full. Looks like you and I are going to be absent for awhile. I hope everything works out for you. I’m excited about the new book and love the title. Can’t wait!
