I've been feeling a novella vibe recently, and I like the size right now. Perhaps another novella? Who knows? What I do know is that I've never been happier doing what I'm doing. That means a lot to me.
On another entirely enjoyable front, the artist who designs my covers, Elaina Lee, emailed me the proof for Love's Master, and it's HOT. She's so incredibly talented, but in addition, she makes the cover art process so wonderful. With just a little information (and one of the hottest couples I've ever seen in a picture), she worked her magic and made my day yesterday. I can't wait to put the final up on the blog to show it off.
I also spent hours yesterday on the PDF for the blog tour with Bewitching Book Tours for the first novella, Vampire Dreams. Why hours, you ask? Because I type too fast. I had two editors do their fine tooth comb business on it last week, and they did the "How can she be in this place at this time and then this place at the same time?" work. Then I did a final sweep through. The problem is that I type so fast that I make little mistakes, such as every for ever (that's a favorite). Since I hate typing more than most, I try to get it done quickly. Yes, I know this is a mistake, but each time I do it, I convince myself that this time I'll do it better. My critique partner can always tell when it was the end of a typing session since that section of the story will have far more typos than others. :)
I finally finished the PDF this morning and sent it off, still worried there was a mistake I missed in there. For me, perfection in this area is a must.
It's a beautiful day here in PA, and I think I'll reward myself for a job well done with a day outside. I hope you have a great day too. To see more of what other ROW 80 people are up to, click HERE.
