I’m baaaack. (Also, free stuff.)

I’ve been back almost a week now actually, but as I mentioned on FB a few days ago, it’s taken some time for me to get back into my usual routine. Florida was hot. And occasionally rainy. But it was a good trip, and I had a great time hanging out with my dad, which more than made up for the unusually high amount of Donald Trump coverage on the local news. (Seriously, he was all over the place. WTH, Florida?)

I didn’t get as much writing done as I wanted, but I did enough to make me happy. I felt like a teenager again, sitting in my bedroom and secretly handwriting all sorts of illicit stuff. 😀 I also got a fair bit of reading done, making a slight dent in the hundreds of books on my reader.

Now that I’m back, I’m ready to jump back into The Rising Son, the second H.I. book. I think I can have it done in a few weeks, so for now I’m feeling pretty confident about keeping the Father’s Day release date. While I was down there, I came pretty close to finishing the non-vampire short story I mentioned previously, plus I outlined a new story that I want to start as soon as Book 2 is done. So I definitely have plenty of stuff to keep me occupied for the foreseeable future.

The bookmarks I told you guys about are in, so just a reminder, if you want one (or many) let me know. I love how they turned out. Thanks again to Jenny Cotton for making that happen.

Last but not least, A Halloween Interlude is FREE on Smashwords through the end of the month. (I meant to do this before I left but got distracted with pre-trip stuff, sorry.) The coupon code is GE76V. Grab a copy while you can!

That’s it for now. Yes, I know it’s Thursday, so you can expect a TBT post, oh, sometime tomorrow. 😉 Have a nice day!

Vacation time!

I’m leaving for Florida on Monday to see my dad. While my home state has given me much cause for concern over the years, there are certain things I’m really looking forward to that I can only experience when I’m in the South. Things like boiled peanuts (hush, they’re delicious), and hardcore flea marketing, and sunsets. There’s just something about a Florida sunset:

Florida sunsetAhhh.

I’ll be gone for two weeks and I doubt I’ll be online much as I usually take this time to unplug for a while. But I’ll be doing plenty of reading and writing, so that’s always a good thing. With any luck, I’ll be able to finish or at least make substantial progress on the non-vampire story. Being in Florida usually sends the muse into overdrive so we’ll see how that goes.

Have a great weekend!
