Hey everyone and Happy Friday!
I hope you all had a great week and a fantastic start to your weekend. I wanted to give you a quick update on what’s going on in my author life right now and share with you some of my wins for this month.
Right now I’m in the middle of self-edits for Third to Come Home (Book 3 of the First to Fight series). I can’t wait for you all to read this book! It’s a bit different from the first two in this series, but that’s because it’s Kevin’s story and he’s a bit different than his two older brothers. I’ve really enjoyed writing each and every word of this book. Like I said though, I’m in the middle of self-edits, actually as of this very moment, I’m on chapter 27 of 40. The plan is to have it ready for my beta readers by the end of June or at the very latest the first week of July.
I do still have a few openings if you’re interested in being a beta reader for me. The link will be toward the bottom of this post.
The other main thing I’m trying to check off my to-do list is getting through HB90 Q3 planning. I love this course and I love planning, but this just takes time to get through. I have a lot of projects I want to work on during Q3 and organizing it all is a lot of work. Between edits and planning, these are the main two things I’ve been working on this month.
Also, for those that have asked, I am not doing Camp NaNo this year, mainly because I’ll be working on getting beta changes for book 3 during July and getting it ready to publish. I would rather focus my time on that. I do love Camp NaNo, I just feel like I won’t have time to really work on a different project this upcoming month.
My daughter is getting ready to graduate from high school/homeschool and I’ve been focusing a lot of my time toward that too, since I’m the one that teaches her. We school year around and take breaks when we want, so that’s why she doesn’t graduate until Sept.
I’ve also been taking time to refill that well too, that means doing somethings I enjoy so I don’t burn out. One of which is, of course, reading. For this month, as of this moment, I’ve read 17 books this month. I’m in the middle of a re-reading a full series, since one of my favorite authors has a new book being released later this year.
If you’re not already, make sure you’re following me over on Instagram. Most of the time, I post daily updates, inspirational quotes, reels, and other fun things there. It’s honestly the main place I post.
I hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Reading!
