It was a busy July. One I didn’t really set goals for because a lot was going on, and that turned out to be a good thing. Mini-Editor went on her first vacation with her grandparents while Mom and Dad stayed home. She got in …
News and Updates
I am so excited to be able to finally reveal this book! The plot for Foster Familiar struck at the end of January when I was working on a totally different book, and it was speaking so loudly I had to give it a couple of days to see if it would stick. And it did.
This book features Nora, who works at the Feline Familiar Cat Café introduced in Catastrophe on the Road, only as you’ll learn in this book, the café is home to cats waiting to find their homes AND familiars waiting to find their witches.
When Nora isn’t at the café, she fosters kittens who have the potential to become familiars, and until they learn to control their abilities, they might just talk to anyone! I’m sure you can see why this might become problematic, especially if their secret fell into the wrong hands. And when Nora stumbles upon a crime scene with some of her foster kittens, she’ll have to think fast to keep them safe.
And best of all, you can grab this book along with 48 others by a fabulous bunch of authors for everyone’s favorite price as part of Supernatural Sleuths hosted by Prolific Works. When you grab any of the books from there, you can send them to your favorite reading device or app. Instructions are provided on the site should you need them.
Somehow we have made it through another month, and let me tell you, it felt like one of the longest months ever. We started the month with one cat at the vets needing test for an issue (allergies), then two and a half weeks later, the other went to the vets for a different issue. $2k later he’s had surgery and is now on the super expensive prescription food for the rest of his life. But it keeps him alive, so you do what you gotta. We’ve had illnesses, water in the basement, more illnesses, and probably more tears on my end than there have been in a long time. Life is stressful sometimes, and it all happens at once.
There’s also been writing. I really wanted to finish my current WIP by the end of the month, but, life. Life happened. And my routine and stable writing time went with it. There has been writing, though, and I am so much closer than I was when I started the month. So the WIP will get done. It has to. There’s a concrete deadline for it, so yeah, has to happen.
But when the words wouldn’t come because of stress, there was cover art happening, and all of the mixing up magic books have updated covers. I’ll work on the Matchmaking Baker books soon. When this WIP is done.
Then after I exist for a few days doing nothing (I never really do nothing), I’ll start lining up my other projects, including the rerelease of Catastrophe on the Road, which as I said last month, will be part of a much bigger endeavor. More on that soon!
But in the meantime, April is also really busy with life. There’s Easter. There’s Mini-Editor’s 5th birthday. My 6th wedding anniversary. Lots of stuff.
Thanks for sticking around and reading to the end of this. What are you hoping to do this month?
