Book Signing and Other Things…

Three days until my book signing.  I’m excited but a little nervous.  Some of my extended family is in town and will be coming, so at least I know for sure that some people will be there!  I need to pick up a few things this afternoon, and put together a couple of posters I’m bringing along.  (One is a copy of the cover for Lies That Bind: Emma’s Story; I decided this would be a good time for the big reveal!  If you get my newsletter, you had an opportunity to get a sneak peek!)

The second round edits for Emma’s Story are coming along slowly; I am near the end, but I seem to have very little time lately (hmm… wonder why).  I probably have too many writing irons in the fire right now, not mention everything going on in my personal life.  I do wish I could hurry up and get that done though; I’m eager to get the manuscript into people’s hands.

Stay tuned for the publication of my juvenile fiction chapter book!  I’ve heard back from almost all of the Beta readers now, and the final manuscript and book cover are in the process of being completed!  You’re also going to meet an AMAZING illustrator who did the art for the cover.  Even if you’re not interested in juvenile fiction, I think you are really going to enjoy her art.

I’m beginning to feel like once I’m through this wave of writing / editing / publishing, I’m not going to know what to do with myself!  I have an idea of what I want to do for my next novel, which I will begin in November with National Novel Writing Month, but these other projects should all be finished up by then (of course, one never knows).  If they are, I think I will take some time to work on some house projects, while planning and prepping for the next novel.

What do you do when you’re “between projects”?  Or do you make sure you never have a “between”?
