|Daffodils were my maternal|
grandmother's favorite flower
Hope all the Mothers had a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend! Mine was pretty good. Spent time with two dear friends of mine. We went out for dinner and hung out. It was a lot of fun.
Sunday I went to church with my family and there was a special blessing for Mothers, so that was very nice. Me and my family saw my own mother later in the day. She's one awesome, awesome lady, so it's always great to see her! She's always been a tremendous source of comfort, encouragement, sound advice, and support. I've learned so much from my mother, so it's great to celebrate her. My husband, offspring, & myself gave her a gift that was a tie-in with All's Fair In Love & Lion (she's read
one of the drafts back when I was revising it to get it ready for submitting). We gave her a white rose, one of Sasha (the heroine) favorite kind of teas, and some chocolate. She loved all of it, and it felt good to spoil her.
Husband hasn't told me about my mother's day gift. He says he plans it for later in the year. Although given recent events and everything (paying for the car to be fixed) that idea may go to the wayside. But perhaps I can finagle a back massage instead. (He gives great massages and it's been a long time since I got one). So a back massage would be a totally awesome belated Mother's Day gift as far as I'm concerned!
Editor says I'll be getting 2nd round of edits probably in early June, so I'll be working to get that done well and quickly so I can send 'em back in time for July 10th release. The plan is it'll be available first on Amazon Kindle, then later go to other E-book formats, then around 9-10 months after release, be available in hard copy (in-print). At least, that's what it looks like at this point. I'll let you know if that changes.
If you look in the margins you'll see I've been a busy little reader. Been focusing a lot on YA, although I did recently finish a Paranormal Romance by Teri Thackson that gave me the shivers! Well written, but don't read it at night. :-)
What's everyone reading these days? What's one of your favorite genres?
Have A Tremendously Terrific Tuesday!
