Mid-Week Update: Juggler Is an Apt Description

It’s been about ten days since I updated on my writing progress. After a very slow start last week, with just 600 words accomplished between Monday and Thursday, I went crazy on my novel Chaos Calling last weekend. My folks took the kids overnight on Friday, so I had some time on my hands. I wrote 1,600 words Friday night, and 2,200 words on Saturday. Sunday I added another 600 words. Tuesday I wrote 800 words. I need to produce about 7,000 words a week to finish this draft in June. But I’m making great progress, and having a lot of fun.

In other news, Brooke tells me her read of Flight (Children of the Sidhe, #3) was very smooth, and she’ll be giving me her suggested changes this week. I should have it to beta readers in early June. A cover shall be coming shortly. Finally a cover featuring a man!

I’ve printed a copy of Descent (Children of the Sidhe, #4), so when I’m in the mood to edit on paper, or take a project out of the house to a coffee shop or something, that’s what I’ll be working on. In fact, I might take it with me when we go to Sunriver next weekend. My mom-in-law will have the kids Saturday night, while we stay a half-hour south in Sunriver. Hubby is currently reading The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss — who is one of my favorite authors and 100% absorbing. I could write Chaos Calling, or I could edit Descent…or maybe a little of both.

The paperback of Queen Witch is also hanging out there. I need to make a couple of changes, which might result in another proof. I’ve just left it sitting there for a bunch of weeks now. Bad, bad me!! I will tackle the next step with that soon.

Have a great week, ROWers!!

  1. Not ready to unveil the actual cover of Flight yet, JR? Well I’ve got the inside scoop so I’ll give up a few more details for your curious fans: the handsome man on the cover of Flight is not the typical “here’s a man’s unbelievably muscular torso” but rather an attractive face with a thoughtful expression. Thank goodness. I love oggling a ripped naked male body as much as the next girl, but it does get tiresome when every other romance novel has one on the cover. Flight is different. And better.
