I signed a contract last weekend for my fourth novel. MuseItUp Publishing decided they wanted Wucaii, so the tentative release date is April 2013. It seems like forever away, but I know it will be here before I realize it. You know I will keep you updated on the progress.
It's been a pretty chill week on the writing front. I did edits (mine and someone else's) and wrote another blog post (for the secret thing). Other than that, I've been really lazy. I need to start edits on Wucaii, but I haven't had the desire. It has been a long, busy week. This weekend isn't going to be much different. I have until September 20 to get them done, and I will get them done, but I need to find my motivation first. If any of you see it, please tell it to come home.
Yesterday, I had my first radio interview for Life Lessons from Slasher Films. I've done radio before, but that doesn't stop me from getting nervous. I try not to be; I tell myself I'm just talking to someone on the phone, and that helps a little. There is a podcast of the show online, and you can access it here. I usually don't listen to the shows once they're on, only because I'm sure I sound like a total moron, but I encourage you all to check it out. Let me know what you think!
Last night, the spouse and I had some things to do, so the boys stayed over at Grandma's. As usual, we ran a little late, so we didn't pick them up until bedtime. Neither one of us ate, so we ran through a drive-thru. For some reason, the boys were wound for sound. They were bouncing off the walls and screeching and screaming. Both my spouse and I told them to calm down and chill out, and they did--for about two seconds. Finally, my spouse had enough. One of the kids screeched for the umpteenth time, so my spouse turned around and said, "This is the last time. I mean it. How many times do I have to tell you to chill out?"
The boys sat silently for a moment, and my spouse turned around in his seat. From the back came the voice of the 3 year old, who said, "Four times."
I almost lost it! I had to bite my lips and turn away so they couldn't see me laughing. I guess if you ask the question, you're going to get an honest answer.
Have a fabulous weekend!
