Another One of Those Busy Times

There are those who think I'm always busy--but the better word might be occupied. But right now, I really am busy.

My next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, Violent Departures, is at the publisher's. As I'm writing this, in my in-box is a rough draft of the final product that I need to go over. (By the time this appears I will have done it.)

I received an email from the publisher's assistant as to suggestions for a cover. I'm really not sure. I looked through some stock photos and picked three that might work. A lot will depend upon how the title is done.

One of the things I always do is a blog tour and I'm planning that now. It won't happen until April but it is a lot of work gathering hosts, setting up the calendar and then writing all the blogs. Each one needs to be unique and interesting enough that at least some people will follow along.

I'm also writing the next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery--and I need to keep at least one chapter ahead of my critique group which meets every week. (Thank goodness, since the book will be due at the end of summer.)

In the meantime, I have to keep hubby happy, run my household, teach my Sunday School class, do my duties as church clerk, and enjoy my big, big family.

This is a photo that inspired the coming Violent Departures.

I love the photo of the house in the woods, and certainly know about busy, Marilyn. Sometimes there isn't even time to write. I admire your ability to do as much as you do!

I'm always amazed by your energy and how prolific you are, Marilyn!

Don't have near the energy I used to have, nor do I get as much done. Thanks for commenting, Jean and Morgan.
