Substitute Bride is now up!
Here are the links if interested:
Remember, this is the same book I wrote under my pen name Kate Page. Since I decided to get rid of Kate Page, I figured I would modify the book (slightly) and republish it.
If anyone is interested, here’s the description:
Kevin Edwards stands to inherit one million dollars. The catch? He must get married by Valentine’s Day. With only a month to spare, he seeks out the first woman who catches his interest: Tammy. But his best friend, Alexandra (Alex) Dixon is convinced he’s making the biggest mistake of his life. So she decides she will take Tammy’s place and be his bride instead. Can she convince him that things will be much better if they become more than friends or will he say “I do” to the wrong woman?
The Busy Stuff
I’m not getting much writing done. I do it when I can, but it’s more like 100 words here or there as time permits. It’s not for lack of ideas. It’s just that life has become extremely busy and will continue to be that way for a while.
Here’s what I got going on…
This is from Nebraska to Minnesota, so I’m also dealing with getting the kids’ school records, etc in order. We’ll be cleaning up the Minnesota place before we move our things up (in a couple of weeks), and after that it’s waiting until the end of the year to officially move out. We want to make it a clean break for the kids. Finish the semester in one school and start in the new school at the beginning of the new semester. (Some people call it quarter, but I tend to think in terms of semesters thanks to my college days. :D) And of course, we’re doing everything we can get our house sold so there are fix-it projects going on in the meantime.
2. Conference in Kansas City
Believe it or not, it’s coming up quickly. I looked at my calendar today and realized I’m leaving next Thursday (the 8th) and won’t come back until Sunday (the 11th). I already know I won’t get any writing done during this time. When I went to this thing in 2009, my friend and I shared a hotel room and when we weren’t attending workshops or talking to agents/publishers/editors/other writers, we were laughing and having a great time in the hotel. The result? Absolutely no writing done whatsoever. I plan to schedule a post or two ahead of time, but I won’t actually be writing posts either. I love the schedule posts feature on Word Press.
3. I’m still hoping to get A Most Unsuitable Earl out soon.
No promises, though. I only have about 10,000 words left to go, and usually that would mean I’d be done with the first draft in under two weeks. However, given all that is going on, I’ll be doing good to finish this up in three to four weeks. I’d love to have this out around the first of December. But if that doesn’t happen, it just doesn’t happen. Sometimes real life takes precedence. I already plan to mark out mid-May to mid-August for family vacations, so I don’t plan to be doing much of anything during that time either. You have to take time to enjoy the kids while they’re young and still think you’re cool enough to be seen in public with. 😀
