ROW 80 Check In 5-4

It's Wednesday and ROW 80 check in day.  I'm hip deep in edits for Stolen Destiny, part of my goals for this Round of Words in 80 Days.  As a result, my writing has decreased considerably, but that's to be expected.  My semester ended last Friday, and I've entered all my grades, so I'm officially on summer time!  Now if the weather here in PA would get with the program, life would be fantastic.  As it is, we are mired in cloudy and rainy days here.  But I'm looking forward to lots of time to write on this break after edits are completed.

Even though I'm swimming in edits, I have taken time to work with the artist who is creating my cover for Vampire Dreams, the novella I'm planning to have out in June.  I love the whole cover art process, and I can't wait to see the final product.  So far, I'm in love with what she's done.  I've even found the image I plan to use for the second novella, Love's Master, and I can't wait to see what she does with that cover.  What fun!

In addition, I've been mulling over ideas for the third novella that seems to be on the horizon.  I only planned on one, but the ideas seem to be there and I'm not feeling novel length yet, so another novella it is.  So far, I'm bouncing around the idea of a foreign diplomat--Russian, perhaps?--and a young English lady being drawn together in the late Victorian period.  The first two novellas had been set in the mid 19th century, but I'm feeling like this one will be closer to the end of that century--1870 and beyond.  I'll have to see where this one goes. 

And always in the back of my mind are edits on the second novel in the Destined Ones series, Destiny Redeemed.  However, they will have to wait until mid-June, at least.  I plan to have that ready to be published by Labor Day.

To see how everyone else is doing, stop over at the ROW 80 page. Have a great week!

Even small progress will add to your overall achievement. Good luck with the rest of your goals!

Did I hear (read) something about Vampire Dreams and June? *cheers* I can't wait to read it! I'm so looking forward to it!

Even though I'm coming over to your blog in a minute, I thought I'd answer here too. Vampire Dreams is coming out in June, and I plan on posting the cover in a few minutes. Take a look and let me know what you think!

Wow, you're one busy lady, Gabrielle! I adore the foreign diplomat/young English lady novella idea. Gotta love the Victorian era. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for that one!

Happy writing, and enjoy your break! :)

Oh, I love a good historical romance. Looking over my new covers is the highlight of my indie journey, let me tell you. It's not REAL until you see your cover. Lucky for me, I'm in love with all of mine.
Have fun with the process!
