My Dwindling To Do List!

Yes!! Progress!!  I'm making progress on my before-I-can-relax-at-the-beach To Do list.  It's all due to everyone's encouragement - I should post my to do lists more often ;>  See below for a status update:

•Revise SCENT OF MAGIC [Have 269 pages done]



Write a short story for THE BEST LAID PLANS anthology  Done and sent to the editor. And I came up with a title, Brand Spanking New (it's about a new recruit's first mission).

Write a travel article about Australia for b Magazine  Done.

Write a synopsis for TASTE OF DEATH (bk 3 in the Healer series)  Done!  (I really like the way this book develops - a new nasty comes into play called the Skeleton King - he's mention in Touch of Power - does anyone remember?).

Write a synopsis for another series to be written after Taste Of Death.  Done - I only wrote the synopsis for book 1 since I'm a seat of the pants writer and have no idea what book 2 and 3 will be :)  I'm not going to tell you what the synopsis is about yet - I need approval from my editor first - otherwise I might get your hopes up for nothing ;>

Prep for talk for the Valley Forge Romance Writers  Done.

Present to VFRW  Done!  The ladies were lovely and such a fun group.  Thanks for lunch!

Attend the Book Expo in NYC in June  Done. Had a great time - signed a book for Dr. Ruth!! (see picture with Dr. Ruth and Rachel Vincent).

Prep for Seton Hill's residency (I'm teaching two classes) and writer's conference (I'm leading one workshop)  Done.  Will be at the multi-author book signing on Friday night at Seton Hill - it's open to the public (http://manygenres.blogspot.com/2012/06/mgoc-signing-on-friday-622-7pm-at-shu.html?spref=fb)  I'll have books there for sale and you can bring your own for me to sign as well :)

•Attend SHU's residency and writer's conference.  [Packing in progress]

If I have time, I'd like to update my appearances page on my website and save a few blog posts to post later - Bri Clark has 2 more post to her Power in the Reader's Touch series.  And I need to answer 3 Q&As for bloggers, too :)

Ah the overall To Do list is never ending!

  4. -Makes grabby hands at Scent of Magic.- You keep mentioning it, I keep getting excited, and then I remember that the release is a long ways away. THEN I sob in a corner! D:

    Third book, new series?! I am so uber excited. ;D Is the new series going to be more Ixian/Sitian plotsies?! WITH FISK GETTING HIS LOVE ON?! :O I just adore him, no seriously, he needs to grow up some more so my obsession with him is less creepy.

    Anyway, I cannot wait. <3 I am sending you all my love! And just so you know, every time I read one of your books, I get the inspiration to write something of my own. Your amazing! <3
