Win a copy of LET SLEEPING DEMONS LIE! by Maree Anderson (for Writers Gone Wild)
Well, checking up on the subject matter this week from my fellow Wild Women, it's tempting to crawl downstairs, pour myself a gin and tonic, and forget all about doing a post. Thought-provoking much? You guys are putting me to shame!
But hey, I've been writing up an absolute storm the past two weeks, trying to get a manuscript ready to submit. Is it any wonder my brain is mush and I'm blogged out?
This afternoon at exactly 4.30pm, I finally got to type The End on the first draft. Well, come to think about it, I think I was so damned shocked to be at the end, I actually forgot to type the words, LOL. Anyway, this is the first time I've plotted a story from start to finish, so it's been educational. And it's a pretty clean draft--if you don't count the copious swearing ;-) -- so now I've got two days to polish it up and get it off, and see what happens.
And then I can start on something really exciting. You see, I've sold another manuscript to Red Sage. But my editor reckons it would be even more fantastic as a bigger book, so she wants me to write a chunk more and explore the characters in even more detail. And I've been holding off starting on the rewrite until I finished the wip, so I'm almost ready to dive right in. Almost.... Can't wait!
And in the hour I had spare before I rushed off to karate, I figured I'd better update my website because (drumroll please) I just received a 5 star Top Pick from Night Owl Reviews for my first demons novella, Even Demons Get The Blues. Woot!
I also had to organise something I've been promising my website followers and subscribers for ages: run a competition.
So the website updates are done, the contest is live, and here's the skinny:
Want to win a copy of my May 1st Red Sage Presents release, LET SLEEPING DEMONS LIE?
Here's what you do: visit my website and follow the instructions. The contest runs from now till the end of April, so there's heaps of time.
(Amended to add: thanks for pointing out I'd forgotten my website link, Kylie! Duh....)
And on that note, I have to go change out of my karate gear into something a bit warmer and a bit less scary. I'm not going to dance class tonight -- gonna have dinner with my family, be a couch potato and have an early night for a change *cue serial yawning*
Take care, everyone!
