My dearest April, where have you gone? LOL. Yeah, it’s FLOWN by! This weekend my step son (who’s our oldest child) graduated from GVSU (Grand Valley State University). We’re SO SO SO proud of him. He’s a social studies teacher (he’s hoping to get a job in a middle school). During his student teaching he got the chance to work w/some 7th graders/junior high aged kids. Of course, my youngest two want him to come back to their school to teach (LOL). But yeah, it was awesome to see all his hard work pay off.
Now, only 5 more kidlets to go (LOL).
On the writing front, things are kind of crazy. Still going through contract negotiations on one book (series), and I have another book that’s out for betas right now (so can’t wait to get this one over to Agent Jenn). I’ve spent the last two weekends reading through my first 2 betas comments etc and adjusting a few things. Once I get the other two back, I’ll finish cleaning TRC up then it’ll be out the door (yay).
Right now, I’m in the midst of plotting another contemp (LOL). I know, I know—I’m not sure what’s gotten into me. I’ve had so many contemporary ideas as of late. And of course, my daughter and sister keeps feeding the fire by telling me how good the ideas are and wanting me to work on them. It’s definitely different than the fantasy/paranormal genres I normally write in. But I’m glad for the chance to spread my wings some.
Hoping to blog more in the coming months, but with the kidlets in soccer, band, and orchestra, I’ll be running around like a crazy woman. I do already have my summer vacation approved (and I’m counting down for it—COME ON AUGUST) and a list of houses I want to look at (hehehe). Still hunting for land or a summer house in the Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. We vacation up there quite a bit, so we’d rather have a permanent place rather than tenting it every year (and that way we can bring our dogs w/us and not have to get a house sitter).
I hope you all have a FAB day/week.
