Last Day of Full Moon
Rainy and cool
Brrr! It’s chilly. I had a busy workday yesterday, flat out all day. Read 150 pages of one of the manuscripts in the swap, worked on PR for my upcoming classes, HEX BREAKER PR, wrote two book reviews, ran errands, paid bills, worked on a couple of short stories, got some submissions out.
This morning, I did the postcards for the “Taste of Tarot” workshop and dropped them off at NIrvana. I’ve got to get more PR for the upcoming workshops out today.
I’ve been watching the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. As a writer (especially one who writes about monarchies in fantasy), the pagentry is fascinating.
There’s a new excerpt on A Biblio Paradise for HEX BREAKER — different than the ones on the website, in the media kit, or on Billy Root’s blog — so go read it. Then go buy it!
Busy writing and reading day ahead of me — juggling a bunch of short stories on deadline, trying to keep on top of the PR, trying to hustle some more freelance work. Never a dull moment. There’s been some coastal flooding, but we’re fine where we are — unlike in NY, where it was always about trying to stay one step ahead of the flood waters.
I love playing with the sci-fi story. I’m pleased with the way that’s coming along.
Tessa is grumpy this morning — not sure why. It’s been raining for the past few days, so I haven’t taken her out with me — maybe she’s getting cabin fever.
I’m putting together an interesting series of workshops for mid-July, that will mix online and live possibilities. I’ve been approached to do some ghost writing — if the money’s okay, I’ll do it. I don’t usually ghost write, but I’m going to make an exception in this case.
I can’t believe it’s June! The heat’s still on. However, I’d rather be wrapped up in sweaters than suffering from heat prostration.
