Updates

I started the post on Joel Larson questioning Tom Larson in the court hearing, but while uploading a picture of Tom that Joel had picked out to best represent him, the post froze up.  While WordPress does a good job of auto-saving posts, I’m just going to make an update post and get back to the court hearing (hopefully) tomorrow.  A lot is going on right now, and I feel like all I’ve been doing is running around with the family.  I guess that’s what summer is all about.  😀

Anyway, some latest developments have changed a few things that I had planned for the summer.  For one, we won’t be moving after all.  A few phone calls regarding my deaf son has confirmed we’re better off with staying where we’re at so he can keep getting the best services possible.  So that means I won’t have the hectic moving summer I anticipated, which is good.

However, I was recently invited to answer interview questions by the very nice award-winning author Stacy-Deanne, and I am working on those at the moment.  She asks some hard questions, too, so I can’t just breeze through them.  I have to think about them and am working on the first draft of my answers.  After that, I’ll go back and polish them up.

I am expecting to take another vacation in July with the family.  I’d love to make a stop around Bismarck, North Dakota, but whether I can or not remains to be seen.  But regardless, we’ll be visiting the my husband’s parents.  My parents are no longer alive, so there’s only one side we visit.

So gaining traction on writing might be difficult.  I am still working on Her Counterfeit Husband, Mitch’s Win, and Bound by Honor, Bound by Love.  I was hoping to have Bound by Honor, Bound by Love out next month, but I can already tell you that isn’t happening.  I’m almost halfway into the book, and I can’t afford to rush it.  This is one of those books that take a lot longer to write than I thought it would when I started it.  Her Counterfeit Husband and Mitch’s Win are coming quicker to me.

I think Bound by Honor, Bound by Love is a tougher book to write because I need to wrap up all the loose ends in the other books in the Native American Romance Series (A Chance in Time, Restoring Hope and Brave Beginnings).  After this book is finished, the series will be complete, and I want to make it the best book it can possibly be.  If I learned nothing else from The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife, I learned that sometime I need to slow down.  😀

That’s about it.  With any luck, I can get the next court hearing post up tomorrow.  *fingers crossed*

  1. Not sure if not moving is good or bad, but I don;t blame you. Better to stay where things are better for him 🙂

    Hope you have a great vacation! Hubby and I are heading to Iowa and maybe Nebraska for a week at the end of June.

    • I think not moving is neither good nor bad. Either way, I’d still get to do what I love most: write. 😀

      I hope you enjoy your vacation! If you like zoos, Omaha’s is one of the best ones I’ve ever been to. They have a dome where you feel like you’re in the desert and in the basement, you are in a cave with bats and a swamp with beavers and alligators. The temperature and smells are set to those areas. The aquarium is cool with the tunnel where fish are swimming above you, but the dome is the best part. I just love how unique it is to be placed in another “world” without having to suffer the insects. LOL

  2. It sounds like you’re relieved you’re not moving. Did you really WANT to move?

    It’s definitely not good to rush a novel. Some come faster and easier than others. Boy, have I learned that!

    • I didn’t want to go through the process of moving. I hate packing and unpacking and trying to sell a house. So I am relieved I don’t have to do that stuff. 😀

      Yep, rushing a novel is never good.
