The best laid plans ...

Leave a Comment
So this summer has gone to hell in a handbasket.

had planned to get my "novella" (in quotes because of its awkward length), Fall On Landing out in June, but tomorrow starts Aug and it's not up yet. Part of the reason is because I tried to hire someone off Fiverr to do the cover, and it didn't work out. I had an idea, expressed in both writing and a sketch, but didn't trust my skills to do it myself. After that fail, I decided, despite not having done much painting since I was a teenager, to give it a go. What I created isn't quite the Old Masters epically nuanced version I had in my head, but I like it enough to use it. So, a couple weeks ago I finished it and ran it through the Canva site to make a cover. Now, I'm just trying to decide between two covers I made. 

Anyone up for a poll? I feel one coming on šŸ˜‰

I've decided to start two different series, and I had planned to get book one in each series at least written this summer. Now, I'm hoping just to finish writing one of them.

My parent's air conditioning broke for 6 wks, which translated to me having to cook and deliver dinner for them almost every night. Special thanks to their home warranty company for the ridiculous repair time (which ought to be criminal here in Phoenix!). And when added to my temporary poor health (raging kidney infection), this summer has spun past in an imperceptible blur of heat, misery, and exhaustion.

But hopefully I'll get Fall On Landing up in the next week or so. And hopefully, I can finish the first draft of the first book in the new series in the next couple weeks. I'd cross my fingers, but that'd just make typing harder šŸ˜‰
