Friends, my whelm has been a bit over. In the past two weeks, I've launched one book, sent in the copyedits for another, and finished the draft of yet another. And now I'm starting the process of drafting what's going to be a Big One-- PEOPLE OF THE CITY, which is technically a Maradaine Elite novel (i.e., starring Dayne and Jerinne), but in practice, this is the first Big Crossover. And it's a LOT.
Right now I'm in that less-sexy, more data-driven part of things of making sure I have timelines and terms squared away, knowing I've got all the who's and what's and where's and when's locked down.
This stuff requires fuel.
My big go-tos right now tend to be coffee in the morning and herbal teas in the afternoon and evening. Add in apples, peanuts and granola, and I'm good to go.
And I'll need to be. There's still a lot of work ahead.
