In roughly 5 months Elk Lake will be publishing and I will be launching ‘How to Steal a Romance.’
Team is up and reading/reviewing already. I have one slot open. Just one free copy to give away for a confirmed helper to launch this romantic suspense… Facebook, comment here, or DM on Twitter!
THE UPDATE :
Progress is being made. The publishing house/creative graphics department is working on a cover. Yeeks! Can’t wait to see it!
Next, a professional website is close to done and thanks to Bob Phillips, webmaster. This is Bob (well, not really). I am apparently a pain in the neck with my emails and requests…
I am finally on Instagram. Soooo I don’t really know how to use it yet, gimme time. *AuthorClaire1 – got a few pics up…
Expedition in the garage getting fixed up for some road trips. Yay!
The launch team (minus 1) is so on it and I love you guys, you rock!
… finished a big project oh say like a novel and got a contract and wonder what’s next?
That’s me. And freakin’ out a bit.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. If you have ANY wisdom do let me know. That’d be awesome. Novel is ‘supposed’ to be out in about 6 months. How to Steal a Romance, ’cause I know you wanna read it. Right?
Since I have been procrastinating I haven’t posted.
Because… I have been procrastinating.
Got back into it last night until 2 a.m. My grammar-a-holic I can credit for crackin’ the whip and makin’ me git back to it.
Fearing ProWritingAid’s (PWA) incredibly slow process again, I tried the free Grammarly only to find that punctuation / proofing was not included. Oh, please.
So I plugged the whole MS back into PWA and typed away.
Funny thing happened on the way to (Damascus) this process. I submitted my cover letter/proposal/synopsis/50 pages without the PWA edit — to the agent.
MERCY. Should I tell her? I am hoping she is blind to my gaffs. Otherwise…
So, while in the process of upgrading and making sure my author page was up and live, everything pretty much changed.
Anyway, writing is a crazy process. How about you? I know a few crazy writers. Wait. All writers are crazy, so.
Perhaps why writers get frustrated at themselves, their agents, publishers etc. :
Let me see if I can put it in words that even the inebriated (writer?) might understand.

Had a hankerin’ for posting a new WordPress site. WHY? Oh, heck. I don’t know. I was frustrated (wait… am frustrated) with my website, and wanted to blog.
You know, like destroy everything techy in sight. I want to throttle something. Or the infernal internet, but I’d have to talk to the man who invented it and reach the end of the .com .net .org .everything else internet-y.
Here I will not focus on forensics but on writing and interviews. (this is also a picture of an agent’s desk. And you wonder why it takes more than a month to hear back…)
So this is a short post.
BECAUSE I AM EDITING.
