Audio: I spent a little over 2.5 hours last week editing audio that I’ve recorded. At this point, the recording for The Last Ant is about halfway done.

Week’s happenings: This week I had a lot of bookkeeping to do. Okay, so I was a little behind. The cobbler’s children have no shoes (and that’s all I’m going to say about that!). I spent some time this last week getting my author page set up on Facebook. Previously, I had 2 series pages (1 for Sacred Knight and the other for The Loki Adventures), but let’s face it: that wasn’t planning ahead very well. I will still post occasionally to the series pages, but mostly I’ll be posting to my author page. I’d love it if you’d join me over there too if you haven’t liked the page yet. I also spent time working on the manuscript for the February release. Technically it’s a novelette right now, but who other than writers know the guidelines for word count anyway? Readers want a story. This one will be just a little longer than my recent short stories, but just a hint shorter than 1-800-Mischief. I also worked up the cover. I’ll probably put a sneak peek on my Facebook page later this week, but even if you don’t join me there (I’m crying over here in my corner!) I’ll still run a post about it on my blog later. I’m toying with the idea of putting a preview in my newsletter for my readers — hint, hint: sign up for the newsletter now so you can get that. On a final note, I have news coming out soon about the 4th Sacred Knight book (I think it’s done — I’m just making sure now — it’s a me thing). Overall, I’m very excited about everything I have going on right now.
