Late Sunday Update today as we were at the pool all day celebrating my youngest child's 5th birthday! I can't believe she's already five. Where does the time go? We had a party for her yesterday and then did special things today like pancakes for breakfast, pool and ice cream, and ordered Chinese for dinner. Five years ago right now, I was in the hospital waiting for my epidural, and I gave birth at 10:30pm.
I'm beat after this week. There were no updates on the blog because I was working on a few big projects. First, I copy edited the next Kami No Sekai short story (due out on July 20th), and the last set of edits to SUMMER HAIKUS from my editor. I basically worked on 43 chapters of edits for during a 2-day work period. It was insane. When I finished, I swore my eyes were bleeding. I have since sent out ARCs of SUMMER HAIKUS and hopefully some people are already reading.
So we have a lot of updates coming in the next few weeks. You can expect lots of SUMMER HAIKUS teasers and a few blog posts on the Japanese traditions behind some of the events during the story. Plus, I'll be sure to talk about the astrological signs of my characters and how that influenced their personalities. I even hope to make a short teaser trailer for SUMMER HAIKUS! Fun! This is all the stuff I love to do.
But most importantly, the SUMMER HAIKUS cover reveal will be this coming Friday and the book will also be on NetGalley! If you're a blogger, let me know in the comments or in a message from my contact page that you want to read!
What else happened this week?
Tried some new beer which was fruity and delicious!
Worked at my CSA and got all these awesome veggies and herbs. I made pasta sauce and used the fresh basil. It was super good.
Put on new Jamberry nails. These are Bright Noise.
Got work done while my kids were at the pool.
Made pancakes for the birthday girl!
And spent the entire day at the pool!
So we have lots coming up this week! Teasers and a cover reveal at the very least, and a Book Chat too! See you soon!
