I have done it, my friends. I have officially started querying Personal Demons, after numerous stringent edits. If anyone else wants to give it a quick beta read, just in case I missed something or whatever, let me know.
This is the most nerve-wracking thing ever…but I think it’s a good book, a solid and fun and sexy book, and damn it, I can’t possibly be the only one, especially since every edit gets a better reaction from early readers.
So that’s that. I have stepped on the merry-go-round.
Also, if anyone is ever interested, for whatever reason, in buying me a gift, here’s the place to go: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. Seriously. (Well, not seriously, because none of you would ever be expected to buy me a gift of any kind and if you tried to I would refuse. But it sounded good, huh.) I think any one of these would make me happy. It is now my goal to try them all. At least, all the ones that sound good, which is basically all of them.
It actually ties in a bit with a whole long post I have planned on perfumes, but that will have to wait for later in the week. Why? Because I’m tired, that’s why. I spent most of the day doing some beta reading for my cp and a new friend, doing more edits on PD, working on my synopsis and query for PD, and doing more edits. Also, I woke up dizzy this morning and stayed that way. I thik it’s an inner-ear thing related to last week’s horrible bronchitis and cold.
I also managed to eat a quarter of a peanut butter cake I made yesterday. Delicious. Always better the second day. I don’t know why I even try to eat them the first day (well, okay, yes I do, and it’s not flattering). This was the first one I made without chocolate chips, because the hubs is insane and so is not a fan of chocolate and peanut butter together, while I think it’s the most yummy combo ever. Anyway, left the chocolate out, and the cake is still pretty good.
Only nine days left until Burt Reynolds Day! (The site is still showing last year’s info, but the date doesn’t change. This will tie in with my post(s) on…macho. Be ready.
