After a long dog walk we were both feeling lazy. The weather was cooler so I spent the rest of the child free day editing. No selfie so this is the best I could come up with!
WOW! Has it really been 2 years since my first novel was published?
Today my publisher contacted me because they needed to renew the ISBN for each edition of the book. Although it isn’t a number one best seller I still get people asking where they can buy it. I often just give them one from my stash because then I can sign it, which I know is not good for sales but I still maintain it isn’t about the money it’s about the achievement. I renewed the ISBN’s for both paperback & ebook (not the hardcover) if anyone is still interested in helping out a trashy romance writer. In the meantime I’m working on a novel I wrote about 18 months ago, one that my beta readers say is my best one yet. I would like to follow the traditional route of publishing with this one, but we’ll see. This is not something you can hurry, & I’m willing to be patient & not give up.
Watch this space…
Just realized I haven’t posted tonight. I was editing my 3rd novel so that definitely counts as writing – well it will have to for today!
I’ve actually been quite productive today with laundry, grocery shopping & housey stuff, but now I’m suffering from a wine fuelled laziness. Can editing a chapter count as today’s writing please?
Poor Tessy can’t get near me as you can see. Java even pushed younger son off the sofa last night so she could sit next to me. I am clearly her second mum, or maybe I’m just flattering myself & it’s because I’m the only person who defends her highly strung ways – oh, that says a lot about me! In the words of my hubby when he sees her like the picture above, ‘I like it best when it’s like this!’, & I kinda know what he means but she is quite sweet, massive & greedy & drools water everywhere after drinking… but quite sweet really… honest!
On with the editing 🙂
Tonight I introduced my boys to E.T. I think the last time I watched that movie was probably 30 years ago when it was released. I don’t remember getting emotional, I was 14 so I doubt I did, but watching it with the kids – OMG! It’s one of those sad feel good movies. You’re happy that he gets to go home, but you’re sad that the boy is so upset at losing his friend. Honestly, half a box of Kleenex later – is that normal? I’m sure it’s going to be one that we watch again & again as they loved it, a true classic.
Now, with the boys in bed & hubby on call, & stuck at work it’s me & the girls – Tess & Java, fighting over top spot next to me while I edit my 3rd novel. I am currently the filling in a canine sandwich!
