Done with Another Major Edit....

You speak truth, LOLkitteh. 

I am not going to ruminate about how hard I've sucked at the work ethic thing lately. I'm just going to ignore the silence of the blog, and tell you that I've finished editing my urban fantasy (whoo to the hoot) and sent it to the two willing betas and inquired about another - so we are on the road to either destruction or Nirvana. We will see.

I feel good. I feel strong. I feel confident. I am foolishly considering writing something for Camp NaNo. That would be kinda dumb, what with the four - no, five completed novels, in various stages of development. But I am tempted.

So tempted.

The problem would be picking a story. I have four of those in various stages of development. The main problem being... they are all framework, no substance. All pudding. No meat. Andja can't haf any phudding if ya don't eachur meat.

And so. Onward. To the next edit. I think I am going to work on the first Gothic Romance - The Vampire Baron. It needs a lot of work.

So I leave you. Ever stalwart. 


  1. Congratulations! Good luck with the beta reading, hopefully they don't tear it up too badly. And get back to work on that Gothic Romance of yours, just the title alone sounds interesting to me.

    I'm about done with my third pass and will soon send it off to beta readers. I have two that are very interested in reading for me once I finish this draft, and a third one has the first six chapters right now. I may look for another one or two betas and compare what they all have to say and make the changes accordingly. In the meanwhile, I'll start on a query letter and finally get back to book number two that I've neglected since February.

  2. It's a lot of work, ain't it? But it's gotta be done, and it's usually fun. :) Thank you - Vampire Baron is the best thing I've ever written. I think. :) Best of luck! Thank you for stopping by.

  3. Hello, Bettielee. Been a long time since we communicated. Heck, you may not even remember me for all I know. Anywho, tripped over your blog and thought I'd say howdy. Glad to know you're still writing.
