Finished and Begun

So I finally finished typing Destiny Renewed, and my fingers hate me right now.  The final draft came in at 84,076 words in slightly under 300 pages.  I sent it to my peeps who will read it, and then it will take its trip in the submissions email to Siren-BookStrand in the hopes that they like the second one in addition to the first one in the series. 

I also began the novella I mentioned in yesterday's post and completed the first chapter.  It has no title, so far, but things flowed well yesterday for about seven pages.

I'm looking forward to a few days of rest and relaxation--not too many, but a few.  I've been checking out a few shows I haven't see before , so I think a few episodes of them should work just fine.

I've also begun planning for virtual book tours, interviews, and guest blogging spots with other authors and at places like The Romance Studio for Stolen Destiny's release in June.  In case anyone wasn't sure, it's the writing that's easy.  The promotion afterward is the work. 

Once I relax for a day or so, it'll be the weekend and I'll be hopping around and enjoying a few days off from work.
