So… Still here. Still writing. Still slacking on my blog. And on my Facebook page. For someone who makes a living in marketing, I’m surprisingly bad at it when it comes to trying to market my own stuff.
I just wanted to send out a quick update on everything. I’m slowly moving forward with editing Grisamore. It’s a process and a half. I also need to post the pictures from my trip to Stones River Battlefield, so watch my Facebook page for that. I have a blog post mostly ready that will go out at the same time. Being able to visit the setting of Grisamore was an incredible experience. Murfreesboro is a beautiful town, and I can’t wait to share it with you all.
I am about 50% done with Flowers for a Ghost. The main scenes are mostly in place. Now, I’m just putting in the details. I feel like I’m finally getting to know my characters. Also, despite my attempts, the husband is not willing to go to France this summer for a research trip. I tried. So, in the meantime, I am spending my time researching life in Bordeaux, both during WWII and in current times. I’m also going to start looking around for a decent bottle of Bordeaux-region wine. Because, you know, research.
I’m keeping this brief so I can get to bed at a decent hour. I promised my mother-in-law that she could read Grisamore as I finish editing each chapter, and I’d love to be able to hand over a chapter or two by the end of the month. With her prodding, I should have Grisamore ready to publish by this summer.
