I promise. I haven't packed up and moved to Siberia yet. Though with the temperatures already up to the hundred degree mark here in lower Alabama, Siberia is looking pretty damned good. I mean seriously, it's May, we should not be this hot we should be in the lower 80s with summer still to come. 100 degree temps are usually reserved for August or late July and usually don't last very long. A few days at the most. Normal is low 90s even in the hottest dog days. Thank god and modern technology for air-conditioning. That's all I have to say. Because, damn, it was still 80 degrees at midnight last night. That's the type of weather that breeds mass murderers.
Okay yes I know I'm just chatting about the weather when I haven't posted a blog in five days. And you're wondering where the naked men are.
I've been super busy. We finished the final edits for Need You Now on the final day of deadline. And that cowboy book I thought I'd finished last week, yeah, well they didn't shut up. I added another ten thousand words. It's finished. I even gave it an epilogue that tied everything up in a great big bow. I finished it at midnight last night. And yes I hit the stage where I was laughing like a manic while plotting a trip to the local mega mart that I'd rigged with explosives and going boom boom boom die mother fuckers die I hate you so bad just DIE...uh it's 81 thousand words, 10 thousand less than Beyond Complicated. And I really should go and have my head examined. I do horrible things to good people. I think there is something really wrong with me.
Okay and now for a little bit of bad news.
I'm not going to self publish Let It Go just yet. I'm going to submit it to a publisher first. See I'm torn on the SP issue. It's great in terms of control. I mean I have complete control. But that's also the problem. I have COMPLETE control and all of the work. I'm sort of lazy. All I want to do is write my stories. And send them off to other people to do the secondary work. So yeah. Please don't hit me.
And the blog...yeah, I'm here less and less. Mostly because I just end up in trouble lately. I have no filter. I say what I think. I've always been like this. Some people appreciate this quality, others not so much.
So for now I'm keeping this to need to know and book promotion.
Speaking of promotion.
Behind Iron Lace is due out tomorrow in paperback.
And Need You Now is set for Saturday.
Should we do a give away?
Yes I think we should.
Need You Now this week. I'll do a signed print copy of BIL as soon as I have one in my hot little hands. So this week all week just comment on the posts to win a copy of NYN on Saturday.
I'll be back on Wednesday with some hot wet men. And Friday for our usual hot man loving Friday.
