Word Count: 10,124

What story I’m currently working on: I was truckin, truckin, truckin the weeks before, but this week was a bit of a slowdown! Well. -ish. I hit 29k with Forged Alliances, though I’m hoping to reach 40k by the end of next week if the story keeps ramping up like it seems to be doing. And a lot of my effort this past week was for the Asgard Lounge sample that I started–I got my first three chapters done at 9k, and now I’m working on an outline/synopsis sort of dealie. Storytime!!

What I’m editing/marketing: I’ve been floating along with edits on the Steampunk with a Twist story–I’ll definitely have that ready by next week.

Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
