Hump Day Updates–Sneaky!

It’s a sneaky peeky at Soul Search‘s cover!

I know, I know, you all are certainly happy to finally see the cover, but let’s face it. You WANT the book!!!

Life happened. Edits delayed. Formatting challenged. But after much anticipation (and hopefully little irritation)….

This week, you shall (finally) have it! If all converts correctly. FRIDAY!! So stay tuned for the link on Twitter and Facebook.

eARCs go out today. Yes. TODAY. #yayyayayay

After a wild weekend in the Indie Book Blowout sale, Irish Moon hit #1 in Fantasy>Historical in books and ebooks on Amazon! This makes it all the more exciting to have Enchanted Moon, book two in the Moon Magick series, releasing this October!

I’ll be sharing it in the Blog Tour de Force “Masquerade” to all commenters, even if you can’t guess who I’m disguised as for the week.

More news? Yes, there certainly is! Nope. Not telling yet. We’ll save the next delicious tidbit for next week.

Happy Hump Day!

PS: Special thanks to all of you readers who have been ever so patient and understanding with this one’s arrival. It means the world to me to have such support!

 


Hump Day Updates–Praise Chocolate

Today I walked my 6 year old to first grade and cried the whole way home. Yep. My lil guy is growing up far too fast on me. For years now, I thought how wonderful it would be to have both kids in school so I could write all day long without distractions and Dora the Explorer yelling at me in the background.

I’m not on my own for eight hours yet but already I can tell, I’d rather be writing with both kids fighting at my feet.

Dove caramel chocolates are helping get me through along with tons of snuggles from my almost four year old.

It’s been one of those months (summers?). *nibble* I’m WAY behind on goals, which for a plotter goal type like me, gives my hives. But I have a ton to be thankful for. Two healthy, amazing children. A super supportive husband. My writer friends who stand by me the whole virtual day through. My non-writer friends who know just when to force me out dancing. (Force, yeah, right.)

Though I’m behind, I feel like a new era is beginning in my writing. *chomp* In part because of the coming re-releases and exciting anthology projects, in part because of the successes of my current list of titles. Whoa! This is where I’ve been long striving to be all these years! Praise chocolate! And, how did that happen? All those baby steps, I suppose, have finally added up to miles of progress.

A few exciting updates on the horizon: Soul Search releases in three short weeks (eARCs on the 15th), Wanted will re-release soon after and the Indie Book Blowout is Labor Day weekend. *nibble nibble nom nom*

Today, I’m going to press pause. I’m going to eat my Dove’s, hugger on my baby girl, pick my son up later with a smile and just focus on being very present in life. A tear or three will probably jerk out. But thanks to friends and chocolate, I will survive. And thrive.

Hugs, Amber Scott
