That would be me.
I haven’t updated in forever, and I’m sorry. I’ll address the most obvious concern first — I’m not dead — and then just tell you I’ve been busy with writing (YAY!) as well as the publishing biz and my attempt at direct sales.
The first few months of the year, I focused heavily on selling Pampered Chef products, but after all my friends and my sister’s friends had parties, I sort of fizzled out. I’m hanging in there, but we’ll see for how long. I will admit I like getting free products, so if I have to relegate myself to two shows a month, then so be it.
On the writing front, I’m hard at work (and near completion) on a YA totalitarian utopia story I’m tentatively calling The Colony. That was actually the title up until yesterday, when I realized there might be a sequel to write when I’m finished this one. I’m five chapters from the end, almost 50k into it, and still am not sure exactly how it will end, so half the fun is getting there. For the first time in forever, I’m writing regularly and fast — I write a chapter a day — so I’m very pleased about that.
And in other news … well, there isn’t any. I badly need to update my writing site, and hopefully get back into some sort of blogging schedule, but no promises. They always seem to fizzle out in the end.
