She’s A Maniac . . .

That’s me. A maniac. Trying to catch up with my writing after a busy, and at times, stressful summer. Phew! So now it’s back to business and my insides are wracked with guilt. I have to ignore something if I’m to ever finish the Works in Progress glaring at me from the corner of my desk . . . but what shall it be? Facebook? Twitter? My blog? Will everyone forget me if I continue to maintain distance from social media? Aaargh!

I’m not only a maniac but an anxiety-riddled indecisive mother, wife, sister, grandmother, friend, author, chief cook and bottle washer. At the moment, I don’t feel I’m wearing any those hats with much success.

What is the one piece of advice all writers tell each other? The one constant? The compass for when life tugs at our shirt tails? Write. Above all else, write. Even if it’s only five minutes here, ten minutes there . . . write. It feeds the momentum and keeps us trudging forward during the gloomy times of writer’s block, family needs, day job stresses and overall confusion.

I finally followed my long time motto to BICHOK. Butt in chair, hands on keyboard. It works! So here’s what to expect from my newly  energized self. The Warrior – Book Two in the Clans of Tagus series – is set to publish September 1st in all digital formats. (Sorry, Nook and Apple fans. I will never publish exclusively with Amazon again. My bad. I heard your complaints and my already published titles are currently on other venues or soon will be. Now can you please return that piece of my ass that was so thoroughly chewed on? Not that I need it. Last time I looked in the mirror, there was plenty more where that came from!)

I’m being interviewed August 27th by the incredibly talented and multi-published Fantasy Romance author, Rachel Carrington. Check out her site because it’s chock full of great news, and then be sure to re-visit on the 27th when I’ll be her guest. It’s going to be fun, fun, fun! http://dawnrachel.com/

I plan to publish a rather spicy contemporary in October tentatively titled, Nice Girls . . . Do! I’ll keep you posted on the progress.

And I promise to return to my regular blogging schedule.

That’s a lot of promises. But hey, it’s an election year and I’m just trying to keep pace with the politicians. Let’s hope my fulfillment ratio is better than theirs! 😉
