Im late a day but I do have good reason...
Well Yesterday was pure hell for me. the damn cable wasn't working most of the day so neither was my phone or TV. I was the unfortunate victim of cabin fever. Thankfully I wasn't picked up for manslaughter or dogslaughter as i did get some editing work done on a piece Audra and I will be sending out for submissions in a short while. So it wasnt a total loss. So lemme get down to business.
The Winner of the GIFTS print is CHERYL. Congrats. As soon as the damn book gets to me *pubby hasn't sent copies yet but they will soon* Ill send you a copy, signed, with Duvall Inc. goodies like a signed poster, magnet, bookmarks and other fun stuff. I hope you enjoy it. Email me at email@example.com and send me your snail mail addy.
So even though I'm home, my relaxation is short lived. Come Monday I will be running around yet again like a chicken without a head. Why? because I'm driving down to NC for the Tease Publishing event in Jacksonville, on the 17th. So Ill be spending some time with my EIC and Publisher which will be cool, and Joe and I will spend his birthday on the beach. So its kinda relaxing.
The 26th I have another signing I have been getting ready for for about three months. Thankfully its just up the road so its not too bad actually. Then Im off the signing hook so to speak till the end of August, then it starts all over again.
And Audra doesn't make her way home from the Dominican Republic till the 14th. So we wont start writing again till the 20th. I'm looking forward to this SO much. We have a lot that needs to be finished, and I cant wait to get some new work out there to everyone.
And, I figured I would mention, that I have started writing on my own, under the name of Dagmar Avery. Ill only be working on novella's and short stories with this name, so stay tuned, I'm hoping for good good things coming out of this camp.
So anyways, now that my updates are done, I figured I should start my actual blog post eh? Sad to say I dont have much to talk about thats witty. Coming home from Scotland was great, and i would visit again, and will, but i couldnt live there. Food is way too weird. But the wedding was fantastic, and Audra looked SO beautiful, and the wedding was a lot of fun. I miss being with my sister, but I know Ill see her soon. And Ill get something cool from the DR, HEH. If your interested in seeing piccys and video from my trip you can do so HERE
I hope that you enjoy them. And now, on to my contest for the month....
