once again, she said, her eyes crossing

Not that I'm focused on pleasing my readers but--I sure would like to know if anyone is interested in my forays into deleted scenes from my book!

Now that that's off my chest, on to more pressing issues regarding publishing and marketing...

I hate to admit it, but I'm on the 4th or 5th round of edits with Createspace. How could I have overlooked all the missing commas the first few times? It's as though I'm brain dead when I look through the electronic proof...I realized today that I've been at this since March. When I first started the process I thought how much easier this would be the second time around--Saille, the Willow, was so much cleaner than The Moonstone--it would be a breeze!

I'm seriously considering hiring a proof reader before I send in the next book. And I have one who is very reasonable if anyone is interested. www.ladymyerswordsmithing.com Christine Myers is not only a reviewer, an editor and a proof reader, she is also a marketing expert who has helped me revamp my website (www.wolfmoontrilogy.com)as well as given me tips on social media marketing and several very good resources. One of these is Virtual Book Tour Magic by Dana Lynn Smith--http://www.amazon.com/Virtual-Book-Tour-Magic-ebook/dp/B006CSDJ2K Dana has several other books out as well.

And so, instead of coming out in June for the summer solstice, (can't even believe I thought that possible!) Book II has been delayed yet again--I'm now hoping for early October for the release. But in some ways this may be a good thing since I now have time to prepare for my blog tour (heaven help me) and get some other pre-release marketing out into the blogesphere. Who knows? Maybe Halloween will be the perfect time to launch Book II.

Thanks for reading and I appreciate any and all comments!


  1. I'd like to see deleted scenes. I wanted to see some of the descriptive passages you cut from Moonstone. Doesn't Saille begin in fall? I think it's a great time to release.

    I used to think I was a good proofreader, but today I found several typos in my MS, which I'd proofed twice and was considering done. C'est la vie. If it's any consolation, I don't think I've read a kindle book yet that didn't have at least one typo, including ones from big publishers.

    1. thanks for your comment,Rachel. Every time I go through it I hold my breath, hoping that this time it will be ready to launch! Yes, Saille should be out in early October (fingers crossed) Deleted scenes are on my website as well as in the last post--I suppose I should say so at the top of the page instead of launching into a scene that no one understands! www.wolfmoontrilogy.com

    you'd probably transform issues up by alternating short bursts of extreme walking for say a minute followed by a recovery time period with slower walking immediately after every single extreme time period. Just continue to keep alternating for twenty minutes to start out and include time while you develop into far more match. You'll be able to use interval training
    with all phases of your green coffee bean extract to enhance your outcomes.

    Also if you do any kind of training it's strongly encouraged you drink lots of water before during and immediately after to keep one's body appropriately hydrated.

    When can t get a girlfriend the woman sees that you're a complete spaz? No matter if she left you. So you've
