I also moved! I'm still in Santa Fe, just no longer downtown. I finally have a real closet too. I even have a little area for my cosplay items.
Because of the move, I haven't really had a chance to get a lot of work done. I'm going to start the edit transfers of MISTRESS OF BLACKWEN after Thanksgiving (I have MUCH to be thankful for this year). I still can't shake the unfinished feeling I have of it, so I'm going to devote the remainder of this year to book two of the Artemis Ravenwing novels.
There is some news concerning CHILD OF BLACKWEN, however! Reviews started coming in! Most of them have been 5 stars on Amazon, and I couldn't be more elated. I am really thankful that people are enjoying my work. Of course, there are those that haven't enjoyed it. That comes with the territory. All I can say is that I hope they enjoy other works of mine once they are out there.
Speaking of reviews, I need to get a move on with my reading list. I fully intend to fulfill my goal of reading 50 books before the year is over. Plus, being a reviewer is part of the job description. Read! Write! Review! :)
Back to CHILD OF BLACKWEN. I am in the process of having bookmarks made! Seeing as how I participate in Comic Cons now, I can just hand those out to further market myself. After all, who doesn't love a bookmark? I do have business cards, but bookmarks have a longer life and get viewed by others more. The plan is to eventually get a booth to sell some books and merchandise, but it'll ideally be for when MISTRESS OF BLACKWEN is published. Naturally, I'll keep you posted about it. Until then, I'll be working on my Tauriel cosplay. Keep the fingers crossed that it'll come out!
Now, I must finish moving the last 5% of stuff from the old home into the new one. Happy early Thanksgiving everyone! Don't forget to give your thanks to the world.
