Edits!

The title says it all. I'm knee deep in edits for another Under the Moon manuscript. This time from Esther Mitchell as part of her Underground series. The first two books, Tamia and Mindkiller are already on sale from Under the Moon (www.underthemoon.org) and the third, Terminal Hunter, will be released at the end of the month. Well, now I'm working on the fourth book, Hero's Hope.

I've never regretted the decision to launch Under the Moon, nor do I regret keeping the imprint small and personal. It allows me the time to work on each novel without being rushed. We are small and will remain small for a long time to come.

In between the edits, we've been working on Jack's reading. Jack is our youngest, 8 years old, and he has a form of high functioning autism. He loves reading, but he's a little behind on where he 'should' be. So, we spend time every day curled up with a book. He slowly tries to read the page and he's improving each day.

I'm also trying to find a little time to practice my artwork - as I'm trying to learn how to draw and paint. It's something I'm enjoying as it's a calm down time for me, and allows me to work on something creative even when I don't have time to work on a new story.

On top of all of this, the oven decided to play up! New one is now ordered but won't be here until next month. I can cope until then, as long as I don't try and do anything too fancy!

For those who don't know, I live in Minnesota, and normally this time of year means we've got several feet of snow out there. Not this time. There's barely a scrap of snow out there, though we've had a few small snow falls, and we've been hitting record high temperatures. I keep expecting to wake up one morning with ten foot of snow on the ground and Mother Nature laughing at everyone. It hit 52F a few days ago!

Back to edits!
