This year’s project is primarily Runaway Rogue, the 5th book in the Wishes & Dreams series. The first week my Muse had me working on the 4th book, Coveted Mate. This week, however, I’ve been working hard on Runaway Rogue (working title)… which as of two nights ago has been officially re-titled Reluctant Rogue. I have a book cover request in to my cover designer!
I did actually take yesterday officially off from writing. I slept in, and putzed about, and went out driving for Uber in the early afternoon, came home and slept for 3 hours straight, then went out Ubering again for a couple hours. I came home and had veal piccata and pasta for dinner, then retired to my room to read for a few hours. I finally came to the computer and pounded out a whole 137 words of Reluctant Rogue, just because! Then I got up early this morning and went to McD’s for some hot cocoa at 5:30 a.m., and got a good start on the next scene I’ll be working on today 🙂 🙂
I’ve ordered marketing banners from Eeva at The Book Khaleesi, who does all my book trailers and banners! I was going to order a book trailer, but it turns out she’s closed to new orders until after the new year, but she said she’d go ahead and do the banner, since it’s pretty simple.
I’ve been trying my own hand at banners in BookBrush, to which I’ve purchased a subscription… see above! I may, one day when I’ve finished my NaNo word count for the day, play around with making a trailer for it in BookBrush, but it still wouldn’t be as good as what Eeva can come up with!
Reminder! Coveted Mate is available for pre-order now!!!

In Other, Non-Writing-Related News……
- Coronavirus, of course. I’ve been vaccinated, and scheduled to have my booster shot in December.
- Uber! In between writing and sleeping and reading, I go out and ferry tourists back and forth to and from the hotels, restaurants, vineyards, and the casino. It’s mostly tourists, who are always happy because they’re on vacation, and there’s lots of good energy flowing!
