Stuff and Other Stuff
So it's been a very busy few weeks in my household. Between spring break and holidays, kids, and writing, it's been madness. A lot of madness. Baseball season started last week, and have I had the chance to see more than two pitches of any one game? No. No, I've not. But today is Opening Day at Yankee Stadium (providing it doesn't rain), and I will watch at least part of it. The Yanks get their World Series rings today. I am. Not. Missing. It.
But, since that isn't until later on this afternoon, I've got stuff to do. And then I have other stuff to do. And then still more stuff to do.
I finished the first revisions on The King's Bride. Yes, I know. The title sucks. As soon as I think of a better one (although, really, almost anything would be better) I'll re-title it, but for now, The King's Bride it is. This story is one I wrote two years (I think) ago, and when it derailed (in spectacular Technicolor fashion, no less) I just let it go. I was curious to see just where my imagination would take it. I wasn't disappointed. Instead of being a straight-up historical, it turned into an historical/paranormal romance. The heroine is a Seer. The hero is a future king. There's some steamy smex. There's murder. Revenge. Jilted lovers. It's got a little bit of everything and I think it has serious possibilities.
I also haz coverz. Er, well, cover. I received the mockup for The Pursuit. And as soon as I get the okay, I'll post it. I like it. I think it does a fair job of capturing the overall menace of the villain and the heroine's fear. Yay.
I've also got a bit of news to share. However, I need to wait until all the details are worked out and finalized. When they are, oh, yes. I will share.
Oh, and I almost forgot... Deadliest Catch premieres tonight! I've been looking forward to this since last July, and I'm curious to see how Capt. Phil's death is handled. The show won't be the same without him, but I'll still be watching.
I think that's about it for now. Now, it's time to get back to work...
