Since signing with my agent last summer, I've had to make many changes to my writing life; this summer will be no different. This will be my last post until September. Originally, I'd committed to finishing the sequel to my YA novel that is currently out on sub with four houses (YAY!); I'm 23,000 words into that sequel and my agent is starting to pitch two of my picture book manuscripts; double YAY! But, after chatting with her last week, we've decided I should work on one of my MG projects. So that's what I'll be writing. I'll also be helping my husband with his new business. (If you remember, I mentioned back in February that he'd decided to open his own car dealerships; we have two now. Phew...)
I'm also planning to read some and for the mere pleasure of it. Here's a list of the physical books (potential summer reads) I have in hand - well, on my nightstand.
Here's the list of intended reads already downloaded on my Nook:
THE DRAGON EMPIRE - Heather McCorkle (Actually, I just finished up with this one.)
DRAGONFLY - Leigh T. Moore
NEW PRIDE - Laura Diamond
DEBT COLLECTOR Episode 2 & 3, at least - Susan Kaye Quinn
Surely something will toss a wrench in my plans, but at least I've set a plan of summer writing and reading in action.
