News for the Week of 2.14.13: Valentine's Day is Cruel, Upcoming Critique Session, and Wispy Hints of Secret Projects


Hello, Dear Friends and Readers!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope this February 14th finds you well. It’s always a strange time of year to me, when a segment of the population that’s happy and in love celebrates, and everyone else either fakes it or, well…doesn’t. Next year I think I’ll try to write something for it, because it sucks when a day seems designed just to point out a thing you don’t have, and stories are good at riposting those types of days.

For me, anyway.

Anyhoo, another week has flown by! The interminable wait for copy edits on Three Dances lingers on, but in other news, I’ve finally hiked up my skirts and thrown on my galoshes and waded into revisions on book two of Soulwoven. The first chapter was a doozy. The second chapter was much easier. And I think I’m getting back into the swing of that world again, which makes me happy and causes me to feel more like a writer and less like an impostor, all of which are good things.

Soulwoven itself is in a bit of a doldrums, reading wise. I am of two minds about whether to try to stir up more interest in it on Wattpad or just to keep writing and trust that its readers will find their way to it over time, one way or another. There is one more Wattpad project I’d like to do in conjunction with it, but I’m not sure it quite has the audience to support it yet.

Also! I’m going to do another first-page critique session on Wattpad this Saturday morning, at 1:00 p.m. EST. It will run for about an hour or so. I’ll give the first two spots to my followers this time around, so if you’re interested, follow me on Wattpad, send a message to my inbox and let me know.

In the meantime, I’ve written an outline for Nadya and continue to make tweaks to it. It’s very close to going into line edits, which means it’s very close to going out on submission, which is very exciting.

Anyway, a fine day to all of you. I am thinking of you and wishing you warm happy moments. I trust that they will come to you sometime, no matter who or where you are.

-Jeff
