2016: The Road So Far
(Yes, that's a Supernatural reference. I used to be the most obnoxious Cas fangirl, and I regret nothing.)
It's that time of year again. Christmas break came and went with few surprises. I spent most of it indoors, curled up by the space heater with my dog Cecil. I got some reading done; I got even more writing done, all for fun. It was nice to have fun for a little while, even if it was a fairly quiet, lowkey kind of fun. The new academic term is already underway and I'm back in school. Classes are going well, and I'm enjoying the work so far. Graduation is creeping closer and closer. I'm eager, and anxious, to be finished with this part of my education.
Over the break I was at work with my Booktrope team getting The Crashers ready for publication. I'm getting back into that headspace for the first time since completing the second book over the summer. Wading into those waters, typing up all the loose ends and getting ready to promote. I'm eager, and anxious, to put the book out there. Advance review copies will be ready soon, if you're into that sort of thing. If you are, and you've expressed interest in reviewing the book, expect those out in the next month.
Tomorrow, my girlfriend Melissa Dominic is flying in from her native South Florida to spend a few days with me. We've made plans to build pillow-forts, get take-out, and watch all the bad movies. The worse the movie, the better. Expect plenty of pictures of us with the dog.
So far, 2016 is going okay. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to clean my house before my girlfriend gets here.
