The past six weeks have been a flurry of both activity and inactivity. The active part included a trip to Austin, Texas for a visit with a writer-friend and a book event in Wimberly. Both were fun and gave me a chance to connect with other writers and with readers. I appreciate their support as I move forward with another active item: book two in my ballet trilogy: When the Music Stops: Dance On.
It feels good to be able to say I’m turning the second book over the publisher for layout, which is the step just before printing. You can expect to see the ARC (Advanced Release Copies) of the book by the first of the year. And, if any of you would like an early peek and promise to write a review, I’ll put you on the list for an electronic ARC. You’ll visit with Marta as she moves forward with her recovery and meets new obstacles along the way.
My inactivity over the past six weeks comes with a plus as well as a minus. The plus is that our son remodeled the family room and made it cozy with better insulated walls, new wallboard, new carpeting and a perfect new window. That also created inactivity when I needed to use three computers to make connections and keep book two moving forward. Further inactivity occurred when we had poor internet connections from Kona where I spent a week early in November. I also managed to bodysurf a street in Lynnwood and disabled both hands for ten days. Ah, so much for being a twinkle-toes (not!) !
Today I’m back and on track. As I move forward, I’ll be working on marketing When the Music Stops and also researching and writing book three, Letters to Follow: A Dancer’s Journey. I look forward to sharing continued writing ideas and updates as we slide coser to 2015.
