August is shaping up in a Not Sure Whether To Take Up Drinking Because I’m Happy Scared Nervous Sad Or All Of The Above kind of way. I think it might turn out be one of those milestone months that linger in memory as a significant corner turned.
The boys start school in eight days. EIGHT DAYS. This fact blows my mind. After being a homeschooling parent for the past three years, it’s gonna be a hard change. A good change, for sure, but hard just the same. It’ll take a little getting used to. Willy J and VV Mike are two of coolest people I know, and I’m a little sad that they’re not going to be around all day every day anymore. But this is a good fit for all of us. They’re excited to be around peers during the day, and frankly, trying to balance homeschool, writing, preschool, an infant, and keeping the house from looking like a war zone was not exactly easy. I’ll be super-glad to have a little less on my plate this year.
Even so, EIGHT DAYS. *squinches nose* I think I’m more nervous about it than the boys are.
SHRILUGH is being copy-edited as we speak. I’m in the depths of revision hell with book two (DARKENING). Also working on a blurb and log-line for SHRILUGH, and finishing up cover art. Can’t wait to share all that with you, but it’s not ready yet. Maybe next week. As things stand, I’m looking at releasing SHRILUGH the last week of August.
My stomach just turned a somersault.
Let’s talk underwear drawers. This week you must choose between two men. One is a vagabond. If you’re wondering how a vagabond can have an underwear drawer at all, vote for him, and I’ll tell you next week. The other is a powerful dictator. If you’re wondering whether or not a powerful ruler keeps his secrets in his underwear drawer, vote for him and I’ll tell you next week. Both men are not from our world, but one of them lives here. Both men believe they are father to the same girl, but neither of them raised her. One man loves the girl’s mother; the other is married to her.
I wonder who you’ll pick…
Vote below, and have a fabulous week!
