Scattered, But Happy -- Plus Giveaway

I've been so busy it's been hard to see straight. 

First, there's only three weeks left of school. For someone who's not in school, I've never had so much stress. My daughters are in 8th, 6th, and 3rd. It's been non-stop.

Then, I edited a 159K New Adult novel. It's now in the hands of the author. I can't wait to see the evolution of the piece. I love being a part of crafting something.

Oh, and did I mention my husband's only been home two days in the last two weeks? He's been in Tokyo since Saturday, and Miami before that.

Tomorrow, I'm heading to Cupertino, California. I've never been there, but the lovely Allyson Gottlieb invited me to sit on an author panel for her high school. I'm so looking forward to meeting her and the other authors. Plus, I love talking about writing. I'm a total geek.

So, if I owe you something, be on the lookout. This weekend is catch-up time. I have books to mail, promotions to plan, and writing to do. Just to name a few things.

Wishing everyone an amazing Memorial Day weekend.

If you are looking for a good weekend read, might I suggest Chasing Shadows. Smiles!
