April kicked my butt. I am so not ready for May.
I’m a member of the Australian Romance Readers Association (great group!) and we do a monthly catch up of books we’ve read. In April I only managed 4 new books, and two of those were novellas. I was shocked. No wonder my TBR pile is getting out of hand! Thank goodness it’s mostly digital, and hence, invisible. It wasn’t that I wasn’t reading. I was re-reading old favourites.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m tired, I like to read books I’ve read before. It’s comforting. I lose myself in a familiar world.
Mostly I’ve been trying to finish my contemporary romance, “It’s Love, Dude”, finish a long short story (if that makes sense?) that weaves in Neanderthals and quantum computing — and now you understand why this story is taking me so long! — come up with a killer idea for a short steampunk romance for an anthology open call, Kisses by Clockwork (Ticonderoga Press), whip out a light romantic comedy of about 12,000 words (which turned emotional and threatened to explode beyond the word limit, and so, has to go on the back burner because it’s not going to fit my writing schedule – darn it) and when all of that is done (ha!) I can start the follow up to “It’s Love, Dude” with Zane’s brother, Brodie. Whew.
Oh, and I also bought a raincoat in the hope that this would convince Fate to test it…and guess what? It rained last night! 🙂
