Sunday Update - Week 27

Hey All.  My eyes are full of grit and I'm kind of brain fried.  And the coffee is working its magic sloooow this morning.  But here we are...

After a few days of marathon editing, the end is in sight.  As of the time of this posting, I have 5 pages of edit notes spanning the last 72 manuscript pages left to go.  Considering I wound up with 19 pages of edit notes, I'm gonna say it's a definite possibility I will be finished by tonight.  I don't think there's anything major left to do.  Could be wrong.  Like I said, I'm brain fried.

In other news, the paperback copies of Up Wish Creek arrived.  I was going to set up a Goodreads contest, but I discovered I never set up a paperback page for that book.  That has to be done first and right now, it's on a back burner.  Monday, I'll do that and set one up for Natural Causes.  Then I'll set up a contest for UWC.  Once the NC copies arrive, there'll be a contest for one of those, too.

Speaking of contests, Deb Salisbury will have a copy of Blood Flow headed her way once she confirms her address via besanderson at gmail dot com.  It's a copy with the original cover, which I still think is totally cool.  I just had to change it to match the ebook cover, which I changed to be more 'in line' with what readers are expecting to see on a political suspense cover these days.  Anyway, congratulations Deb!

I didn't do any reading last week because of the looming deadline thing.  I fully expect to be reading tomorrow.  First up, Silver James' latest Harlequin - Claiming the Cowgirl's Baby.

I managed one good morning of fishing.

And lastly, not but leastly, we saw the first fawn of the year last Sunday.  Since then, we've seen two others - twins.  Here's the single:
That's not the back of her mother, btw.  Mom's off to the right.  That's her older sister - a 2016 model.

Well, that's it for me this week.  Whazzup with you?


  1. I like the new cover!

    Awww, thank you! I hope you enjoy it. This one was a bit personal for me. That whole adoption thing...

    Baby deer for the win!

    Wait, what? We have to set up a print page on Goodreads? Color me confused... On that note, I hope to have NIGHT MOVES and NIGHT FIRE ready for print by the end of the week. In meantime, I have many, MANY words to write. I'll crack the whip for both of us! Yay on the massive editing job almost done, btw!

  2. Woohoo! I'm so looking forward to reading Blood Flow! (Feeling brave today.)

    Yay for your fawns! (I nearly wrote swans. Hmm. Coffee!) My closest discovery was a bird nest built right out my back window.

    I'm up to page 106 in 7C - got a lot done yesterday. Today? Need coffee! ;-)
