What's On My Plate

I would like to apologize to my blogger buddies and visitors for not keeping up with my blog lately. As I'm sure it is for many, the approaching of the holidays can make life crazy. Shopping, cleaning, organizing,  gift wrapping, preparing for family, cooking, the crazy weather...

Okay, let me stop the crap...none of those are the reasons for my lack of new posts lately.

The truth is, I've been crazy busy trying to work on some final revision work on Breaking Out, my completed YA paranormal novel, which I'm HOPING to start querying in January. This means that I am also working on my very important query letter and the synopsis. In addition, I am trying to find time to work on my new WIP as well as my first love novel that I have recently pulled out of the old trunkeroo. I'm crazy I tell ya. In addition to that, I am currently beta reading for 3 different people (well, waiting on the next chapter from one, re-reading completed ms with finished revisions, and another ms  just waiting on my desktop to get to). On top of that, I have been dealing with my 4 year old twin daughters who I have discovered do have the ability to share and take turns after all. Who knew that it would be with a blasted cold :-) What do you get when you cross kids in Pre-K and freezing winter weather? SICK KIDS FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS!!!

Anyway, I hope after the holidays to get a bit more consistent in my blogging. I'm trying to still visit blogs when I can, so you may see me popping around.

In case I don't make it back here before Xmas, Happy holidays to you and your loved ones and to those who don't celebrate Xmas, wishing you happiness and health as we approach the new year.


  1. Good look with the query letter and synopsis. I should have been done the synopsis to my own novel, but I've put it on hold until the new year. Simply can't concentrate having my daughter at home for the holidays.

    My novel is paranormal and is called, "Breaking Ice" - perhaps the Breaking bit is catching!!

  2. Ah yes, those holiday memories where my brother would bring his sick kids over and install them in the guest room. They'd be so out of it, they didn't care where they were, but they couldn't be left at home alone. So they came here, and my husband and I would have the 12 Days of Christmas cold/cough afterward. Good times. I hope your twins feel better soon.

    You will need all those distractions once you send your query out, to keep you from checking your inbox every five minutes: Is there a request now? How 'bout now? Ooo--something in my inbox! Oh, it's a facebook invitation. :( I'll check again in a few minutes.

    Best of luck on your querying, you're doing all the right things! Just make sure you fit some baths in there--not because I think you're unhygienic, but because of the valuable downtime. Onward!

  3. Wow, i didn't know you were doing three beta reads too! You're busy busy. Ah, kids and colds -- you know my latest saga and you have my sympathies. Happy Holidays!!!
