Back With the Living

So I'm back with the living! So sorry I've been absent from the ether this week. I missed all of you, but I'm finally turning the corner on this terrible summer flu and I can't wait to see what you all have been up to.

I am almost at the 60 K mark in my first draft of Whispers on Shadow Bay and I've finished revising the 2nd draft of my plot blocks. I'm still iffy on the actual location of the final scene, but that's not due for a bit.  Its during this point that I start to imagine what the cover might look like and the font...I think its my brain's attempt to cajole me into finishing on time.

I have a July 30th deadline for this book. I mean to finish it before the school year begins and all kinds of craziness ensues on my home.  This will give the Beta Readers time to go over it. I may have to sweeten the pot with doughnuts to get them done in time.

On the bright side, I am feeling well enough to drink coffee again -- my brain fuel -- so things should start cracking soon on the WIP again. 

I'm putting together a list of Blogfests on my sidebar so if you know of any, let me know.

I'm off to read your posts now...mwah!
