The WIP is no longer in progress, because it is DONE!!!! I'm so excited to have completed the story, 25k words strong. I'm now in the editing process and getting ready to send it out into the interwebs, hoping it finds a good home.
It has already been a busy week, and it's only Wednesday. My tired fingers are aching but I must keep going. The word count is growing as the deadline gets closer, but I'm feeling very confident. And, I think the story is going great!
In other news, Girl Crush and Please Ma'am are now both available from Amazon. Just click the links on my slideshow in the right margin and buy away! Both books look amazing and with the line-ups of these books, they should be hot, hot, hot!!! I can't wait to get my hands on my copies and dive in.
Speaking of Girl Crush, today, you can read an interview with me and an excerpt from my story, Cut and Dry, right here on the Girl Crush website. I'm so happy to be a part of this collection and I hope you all run out and get yourself a copy.
Great weekend. Flat out great weekend. I got to spend a lot of quality time with the family, got to almost 10k on my work-in-progress, The Cats won and received a nice present from my niece. It's a mug that says, "My aunt is the coolest." Hey, if a (nearly) three year old thinks so, I must be doing something right.
Too much to do right now. But, hopefully I'll have more to say later this week. Bask in the Man Candy, I know I will.
I'm knee deep in my new WIP, but I wanted to take a moment and just catch my breath. This new project has been a bit tough for me, my first foray into a novella length piece. It is a little tougher than I anticipated, but I think, so far, it's going pretty well. I'm trying to keep it simple, and not over think and over edit, as I sometimes do. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Made some decent money at our yard sale this weekend, and was once again reminded that the sun and I just don't get along. My face is fading to a nice, rosy pink, but it still hurts to crinkle up my forehead. Sunscreen, how did I forget that?
My man candy should be okay though, he looks to be a tanner.
Just dropping by today to mention that my story, Room 555, is now available in the new Xcite e-book, Cocktales: Between the Sheets. It looks like a great collection, and there's more of the series to come!! Stay tuned . . . .
I hope everyone had a good weekend and that all the mothers out there had a relaxing day. I didn't get to see my mom, but she was well taken care of by my wonderful siblings. We had a lovely chat between my sister's brunch and my brother's dinner. My mother is a wonderful lady and I'm so honored to be her daughter. Mary Jane, you're my hero. I'd also like to give a shout out to my fabulous mother-in-law. She is one of my biggest fans, and will proudly tell anyone who will listen that her daughter-in-law writes smutty stories. Susan, you rock!!
Also, today is the day that the Necking Anthology from Dreamspinner Press comes out today. It is available in both print and e-book, and I think it's pretty amazing. My story, Breaking the Habit, is included and I'm thrilled!
It was a great weekend, and I'm ready to tackle my next big project, now that the preliminaries have been taken care of. Wish me luck and enjoy the Man Candy. _
Just a few little things for today. My story, Kiss the Bride is featured on the Erotic Woman today. It's a classic, but if you haven't checked it out, now's your chance.
Also, Filament Magazine Readers' Choice awards close on May 9th. Feel free to vote right here, even if it's not for me as your favorite story. You have two of mine to choose from, One Night Only and Cold Turkey. No pressure of course, but if you liked them, let Filament know.
If you haven't had the chance to hear my wonderful podcast interview with Dr. Dick, part 1 and part 2 are now live and available for download at iTunes. Apparently, it's been pretty popular and I'm completely overwhelmed by the response.
My contributor copies of Please, Sir arrived yesterday, and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to dive into it. If you haven't gotten it yet, what are you waiting for? Check out the virtual book tour and get a taste.
Anywho, back to work. Stay tuned for more news and happenings coming very soon.
In case you didn't hear, I met all my deadlines and am now ready to move onto my bigger projects. It was such a good feeling to get it all done. I'm so proud of myself and my small victory over procrastination. Now, I just hope I can keep the momentum going.
I had a great weekend. I got to spend Saturday with my girl Danielle, have some drinks and make merry. Hubby and I also threw away a bunch of stuff during our community clean-up and purging always feels good. All in all, I great way to kick off a new month and a new set of goals.
In other Heidi-related news, Please Sir is out and it is hot!! The blog tour has begun, but you can check out past posts and future stops on the tour right below. Make sure to buy the book, you won't be sorry. Just click on the link in the slideshow on my sidebar. And, you can read my interview about my story, Long Time Gone, right here.
I. Am. Done. Yes, that is right, people. My goals have been met, my stories have been written and just need a few tweaks before they get sent out. I hope that my trials and tribulations here will give procrastinators everywhere hope. If I can do it, you can do it. Sure you can . . .well, maybe tomorrow. (ha ha)
Now that these stories are done, I'm ready to start my new project. It is a novella and I can't wait to get started. I'll keep you posted on my progress and procrastination, as always.
Thanks to everyone who offered me support during this time, and to everyone who believed in me. I couldn't have done it without you. Now, who's got the beer?
