Wow, I can hardly believe I’ve been doing these posts for forty weeks already! They’ve definitely helped me to keep my focus onto the positive things in my life 🙂
What’s making me happy this week: visible progress.
There are plenty of milestones in creating a book. Deciding on the initial idea, figuring out the major plot points, completing the first draft (and then the umpteen versions afterwards), finishing edits, making the cover. But there is nothing like seeing a new book go up on the shelf and be well-received by your readers <3
The cover for the new book itself is making me really happy. I think it might be my new favorite 🙂 And I have to say, the progress I’m making on the next one is making me pretty darn happy, too.
I’m trying to figure out the best way to connect with my readers (outside of my books 😉 ), and am trying something new. I’ve created a Facebook group for Department of Homeworld Security readers to connect with me and each other. Check it out for inside-scoops on the series and to stay in touch 🙂
Wishing you all a wonderful rest-of-your-week!
