Sunday Update - Week 8

Well, here's Sunday again.  This last week flew by.  Not sure what was fueling its jets, but here it is.

Thursday, I received my edit notes back from AWE for In Deep Wish, and I sent her Fertile Ground to work her magic on.  I'm still on track with IDW for a March 15th release day, and hope to be on track for a mid-May release of FG.

If you were signed up for my newsletter, it went out Saturday.  Inside was a way to get an early copy of IDW, a teaser first chapter of the book, and a cover reveal.  If you're interested in seeing a copy of the newsletter now, email me at be.sanderson.writer at gmail dot com, and I'll forward you a copy.  If you're not that motivated, I'll post the cover reveal on Friday at Outside the Box.  (If you skip over to OTB now, you'll see a smaller teaser and a teaser of the cover.)

Last Sunday was the final day of my free weekend for Dying Embers.  All in all, it went well.  Seeing residual sales from it, which is always good.  I'll talk about that tomorrow at OTB.

I've got some advertising set up for this week.  My first ever ad with Fussy Librarian (why do my fingers always want to type fuzzy? ugh) will go out on Tuesday for Dying Embers, as will my ad with  Kboards for BloodFlow in their 'Book Discovery' promotion.  Fingers crossed.

On the daily activity front, I did something active every day but Thursday, but I'm good with missing Thursday because I did double duty Wednesday and Friday, and yesterday I was active all over the place - cleaning, exercising, walking, and garden work.  Ugh, I'm bushed today.  On the upside, I had a happy realization when I went to put on my bra.  It hooked on the middle row and I wasn't strangling my ribcage.  Also, the ladies fit in their docking stations better.  I didn't notice before because I usually wear a sports bra. 

I haven't read anything but my own stuff lately.  I feel really bad about that, but I can't seem to muster the urge to open someone else's book right now.  I think my usual February writing malaise has transferred itself to reading - ya know, since I have no time for a  writing malaise anymore.

The Kid's doing well.  The cat's doing well.  Hubs is chugging right along.  How are things in your world?


  1. I now have new name for my bra, the docking station. I almost spit up my juice.
    Thank you!

  2. Ah, the girls. They do get into so much trouble. I remember posting one time that I'd finally found a comfortable bra. It was a HUGE deal to me. To my friends? Not so much. LOL

    I've been doing contest reads. I have one more. It's...okay. I must soldier through to get it done. Then I can read for fun. I have so much fun reading to do! I'm behind on my Goodreads challenge because I can't list the majority of contest books until after the end of the contest.

    MOONSTRUCK: LIES is up for preorder at Amazon. I hope it will be up at other places by the end of next week. I should have this revision pass done today, then a read-out-loud read through, then formatting.

    Cat and dogs are as confused by the weather as the humans. LG isn't doin' so hot but at least VA is trying to work through stuff again. I've been on the gazelle for at least 30 minutes every day this past week. I listen to books. Sadly, I can only listen to books I've already read or I get lost. Did I mention I hated my college lecture courses? LOLOL

    Can't wait for IDW. I'll buy it when its available. :D

    Okay. More coffee then more editing.... *wanders off looking determined*

  3. I LOVE In Deep Wish's first chapter! I can't wait to read the whole thing!

    ROFL re: docking stations! A great phrase! Congrats on yours fitting better. :-)

    Exercise. Working on that. I fell flat on my chin a couple of days ago, and my brains are still rattling around inside my skull. I consider myself lucky to have minor scrapes and bruises.

    I thought I'd had an unproductive week until I checked my records. Finished 15 pages on 5C, and about that many more in nonfiction. Yay!
