Good morning, InspyRomance Land!
How goes? Good but busy week here (is it ever anything else?) – hubby’s been sick :(. He rarely is, but is right now. Feeling MUCH better than he was before, though. I ran a sale – was supposed to be two days but now through Sunday midnight or so. If you’re looking for a Carol Moncado book, now’s a great time ;). Plus my Christmas novella released! It’s part of the Snowflakes and Mistletoe collection!
AND I finished two books today! Okay – it was a total of about 8 smallish scenes that needed worked into two different projects, but they’re both ready for (final?) edits!!! Then I can get to fast drafting the next one! I love that part! When I looked through my TimeHop, I realized that today was the day I made the big announcement. Last year, I decided to go indie and have LOVED it and haven’t looked back! Would I still love to be hybrid (write both indie and for a traditional publisher)? Yep! Sure would! But this indie ride has been fabulous! Seven novels and two novellas in the last 10.5 months – with one more novella and 1-2 more novels coming this year :). LOVING it!
