Almost Done!

Working diligently on Under a Calico Moon. And it’s paying off, I’m three quarters of the way through now, and it’s really getting exciting! My goal is to finish by the end of the month, so I have two weeks to get another fifteen thousand words in.

Today I shared the shiny new cover with my newsletter subscribers, and I’m dying to post it here, but that won’t be for another week. It’s been really hard keeping it under wraps, so I’m really excited to share.  Here’s the tagline:

An old adversary seeks revenge on a lonely cowboy by ruining his chances for love and happiness.

Life’s been hectic the last few weeks. I’ve moved from our home in High River, and am now living exclusively in our house in Climax, except for a few days a week, when I’m in Calgary with the day job. When I’m there, I’m staying with a friend. I found the expense of maintaining two homes was beginning to be a bit much.

Am I happy about being at home? Oh for sure! I get to spend more time home with Bruce and my furry babies. But since I’ve spent so little time here lately, it’s going to take some time to get used to things and make my writing space my own again. I’ll post pictures once I have an actual dedicated place. Right now, I write at the kitchen table, or in the living room, with a tv tray. Not ideal because if the television is on, it can be distracting, and the chairs in the kitchen are not the most comfortable. Dying to get the basement renovated so that I can have my office built, but that won’t be for a while yet. We just had the roof done in the fall, so another big project has to wait.

In the meantime, I’ve got some gardening to worry about, which you may see me comment on if you follow me on Twitter. I’ve got several pots of potatoes growing, as well as onions, radishes, tomatoes and lettuce. Next year, I’ve got a raised garden to put in, just didn’t have time to get it in this year. My father was an avid gardener so I blame my need for growing my own food squarely on him. Learned a lot from dear old dad. And I’m slowly teaching hubby how to keep an eye on things when I’m not here! He’s a reluctant learner, but he’s doing well.

Anyway, that’s the update.  If you’d like to be the first to hear about new release information, contests and giveaways, don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter–link on the right side.  I have it on good authority that my subscribers will be eligible to win a special gift celebrating the release of Calico Moon.

Until next time,
