Last week I posted about making my yearly writing project list. And I did. It just grew far more expansive than I'd expected. I made the mistake of checking out three of my four publishers' wish lists and now my crazy brain won't stop pumping out ideas.
Most writers would love to be in that predicament. Not me. The older I get, the less my brain wants to scramble. What I use to accomplish with a day planner and some sticky notes, now takes a spreadsheet, a white board, copious markers of different colors, and lots and lots of coffee.
My online coffee order arrived just the other day. Final count: 285 pods! As you can see by this snapshot ... I'm addicted!
Last Friday, as planned, I began my spreadsheet. Coffee in hand, this is what I came up with ...
Now, if only my muse will cooperate!
Since I've been all about sneak peaks my last few posts, I'll give you a quick look at one of my books scheduled for Fall release. Note: this is not the cover but a mock up for promotion!
Waking Up in Oz
When attorney Dorothy Gail Farmer leaves her firm's offices in Kansas City for the small town of Oswald, she's not sure what to expect.
Sent to file an injunction on behalf of her client, a wildlife rescue mission, Dorothy is certain the task will take her no more than a day or two at most.
What she doesn't bargain on is landing in the middle of a town obsessed with the Oz legend and meeting so many strange people. And, of course, there's the tornado.
~ ~ ~Out of all the books I've written, this one has been the absolute most fun!
