Sitting at the airport, post-BEA, and heading home. The conference was amazing. A massive thanks to the authors who invited me to attend with them: Tina Folson, CJ Lyons, Bella Andre, Barbara Freethy, and Stephanie Bond. All were amazing. As were the other authors who hung out with us, like Liliana Hart and Jasinda Wilder (and their awesome other halves). I’m sure I’m leaving some others out. I can tell you this, my TBR list exploded from being around these writers and their fans.
I head home to three weeks of crunch time. I’m very close to wrapping the rough draft of DUST, which means the real work is about to begin. Revisions. My favorite part, but also the toughest part. The blog may suffer between now and the end of the month. I’ll respond to FB messages and emails more slowly. For that, I apologize.
The goal is to have a readable draft ready before my wife and I go on vacation. That’ll allow me to put the work in the hands of editors while I’m gone. I’ll get back to a pile of red ink and return to work. Should have the final draft by the middle of July, get some copyedits from Random House so they can get their edition read for a simultaneous release, and then launch that puppy on August 17th.
