Mondays are also my A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) check in days. 

After completing my second round of edits on Chasing Shadows, I needed to play quite a bit of catch up on everything from blog posts to taxes. Now, I'm working on Chasing Forgiveness, a Tala Prophecy novella, while I'm waiting for CS to come back. Plus, I need to finish my Acknowledgements and back cover summary. 

Wishing everyone a great week!

Thanks for sharing the information about the writing contest. Congrats on finishing a round of edits on one your manuscripts. I'm approaching the 75 percent-completed stage with my WIP, so hopefully I can set it aside for a few weeks before starting the editing process.

Have a great week! :)

Ugh. I missed the deadline for this, too! I think I've been living in a hole for the last month or so. Being sick, getting married, and working project after project is draining. :)

But I'm happy we're getting into the edits now. I can't wait to get going on the cover art, too! :)
