Weekly writing check-in: painting and progress

I missed last week, but I have a good excuse. To the left. That. That’s my desk at the moment.

And last weekend, I was all: I can’t even.

But there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and I’m pretty sure it’s not an oncoming train.

I have been getting some writing in (thank you, Starbucks). I have about 15,000 in the novella so far, and I really hope I can finish it up this coming week.

In other news, I’m doing a short-term promotion for Straying from the Path.

If you like fairy tale retellings and haven’t grabbed a copy yet, here’s your chance. Just 99 cents, just about everywhere e-books are sold.

Free Fiction Friday: Just a Matter of Time

Just a Matter of Time was first published in Sucker Literary Magazine, Vol. III, April 2014.

Sadie Lin: High school junior Sadie is desperate–to maintain her GPA, to score high on the SATs, for her dad to return from Afghanistan. Time seems to crawl and slip through her fingers all at once. She thinks it’s all in her head.

It’s not.

Gordon Bakersfield: Gordon–Sadie’s ninth-grade epic crush–has plenty of time and knows where to get more. He knows someone has been stealing Sadie’s time. And while he’s not sure how to make it stop, he’s hoping to try. But can Sadie trust him?

Only time will tell.

Today’s offering is too long for the blog. Click the link or the book cover to download it from your favorite retailer.

Weekly writing check-in: renovation (whew)

A quick check-in this week, because we’re doing a little renovation around here (painting and floors and such–nothing structural, thankfully), and I’m tired.

Make that very tired.

But I did pass the 10,000-word mark in The Trouble with Doppelgangers. I’m pretty sure it won’t turn into an actual novel (although, if it does, I can always make it the second book in the series).

I also set up a few promotions, and I’m certain I did some other things as well. At the moment?

Whew.

I’m tired.
