I hope everybody's been having a wonderful summer! Here's some of what I've been up to over the past few weeks--at least the parts that don't involve me being glued to my computer writing, writing, writing, sometimes gleefully, sometimes in :::headdesk::: misery, or, alternatively, engrossed in somebody else's novel. Since these activities do not make for the most thrilling blog post topics, I will spare you, dear reader. Instead, here some of the highlights of the OTHER stuff I've been doing! :)
My Summer Fun So Far
Then There Were The Aliens
WHAT?? Coming home from grocery shopping one night with E, got out of the car and saw these BIZARRE silent floating lights over my neighborhood...
Eventually I realized someone was sending up burning lanterns a la "Tangled." At least I keep telling myself that's what it was... (In case you never saw Tangled, see what I'm talking about below. And if you haven't, egads, man! or woman! you don't know what you're missing! My favorite character: Max the horse.)
In Writing News
Some folks have been wondering when the next Moonlight Square is coming. Just to let you know, it's still on deck, just running a bit behind due to SECRETS OF THE DEEP coming out to be such an epic fantasy sized tome. That set the schedule back a bit, and then I had to finish my part on Harmony Falls, Book 1: DREAM OF ME. That, too, took me somewhat longer than expected because writing contemporary romance is still a brand-new skill set for this ol' historical gal. What a learning curve! But it's exciting to be expanding my abilities, so I appreciate your patience. Good books take time, and my readers deserve my best.
I can tell you one thing, though -- between Harmony Falls and Moonlight Square, it's going to be a busy autumn, book-release-wise! (Is that a word?) There are cover reveals coming soon, but all in due time. Just wanted to let you know, never fear, the mysterious Duke of Rivenwood is still waiting in the shadows for his rendezvous with you, my dear reader! (Sign up for my mailing list if you'd like to receive an email alert as soon as it's available. That will save you the trouble of having to check back, plus you get a free gift, my info-packed 52-page Regency Glossary.) That's all for now!
Enjoy the final month of summer, friends! I hope all you moms out there get a little well-earned me-time with the kiddos back in school, Teachers, of whom I know there are many in my audience, best of luck with your new classes! Thanks for visiting, everybody ~ more to come soon! xo, Gaelen
