Thank you to Silk Sonic for giving me that title. I use it a lot now because it is exactly what I want to ask people most of the time. ‘Whatchoo doin’? Where you at? Oh, you got plans…?’ Do you know what I’m talking about? No? Yaassss? Well, let me introduce or remind you of this beautifulness right here because everybody could use a little Bruno in their lives:
But I digress.
Can you believe that July is almost over? Ok, maybe not almost but the last time I looked it was the 1st, so it is flying by at a pretty quick clip to me. If you were to ask me what I’m doin’ and where I’m at I’d tell you that I’ve been an editing fool for the past few weeks, trying to get a piece ready for your consumption at some point down the road. Once this is done I will start the next piece, a &^%#@ about (*&%! – lol! That’s right, I’m not gonna spill the beans just yet.
What I will talk about is all the goodness coming up soon – very soon. The Promise Keeper will re-re-release (lol) with style (ch-ch-changes!) and right around the same time the novel that started it all, Crescendo, will come back out into the world! I am so excited about both of these. And wait until you see the covers!
Ooh – this is big! Telecommuting is ON SALE! If you haven’t picked it up yet, this is the perfect time to dive into this fast-paced novella because it is only .99 until the 18th!
I had the honor of speaking a few times at the In Your Write Mind conference last weekend and it was a complete blast. I gave a talk called Breaking the Rules – The Path to Authentic Writing, participated on a couple of panels, and interacted on others with people I respect the heck out of. Great way to spend a few days.
I’ve done a few cool things this month too – spoke at Mocha Memoirs’ 10th birthday celebration on Facebook and did a Destination Research segment on ConTinual. You should check out the fun – I covered the beautiful Sint Maarten in my segment.
What are you reading? I am listening to Dread Nation by Justina Ireland and reading Silenced by Nicole Givens Kurtz. Just started them both and am loving them in equal measure.
Creepy movie made creepier by how close to reality it could be. Yick! I just got the chills thinking about it again.
Where am I (at)? Underneath all of the papers I’m editing with red ink smudges on my hands. But in a few months I will be at some cool places, specifically Multiverse! They even made me a card, see? WOOT! Maybe I’ll see you there!
And I think that might be it! Shoot me some book and movie recs – I never get tired of those. I would tell you to leave the door open like Silk Sonic does but that might be irresponsible considering what I write. Soooo I will go with lock your doors and block entry with something heavy, burn sage and walk it around the interior, and hunker down.
Until next time…
