Day 1 was traveling and getting to the house Marc (M), MTSnow (S), and I rented before GRL. We all converged to Denver in one piece, hung out last night after dinner in a mall food court, and crashed.
Picture of the standing horse at the Denver airport. We had to circle a lot while we waited for M to arrive from customs. Not the best picture. I’ll see if I can get a closer one with my picture software. And crop it a bit.
Day 2 was leisurely awakening this morning, a Costco and grocery run for the week, and returning back to the house for lunch. Just finished lunch and now I’m ready to nap. I’m on vacation. I can nap if I want to!
Picture below is a bush full of finches, it looks like. They are so cute. Their was this morning on the way to Costco.
The house is beautiful and plenty of room. The owner lives in the basement and rents out the upstairs via Airbnb. He got me a candy thermometer for the making of Divinity, a little Goergia I’m bringing to the retreat. I’ll probably do that this evening or tomorrow. I’m going to bring some just for K-lee to distract/cheer up from the pain she’s been having. Don’t worry, I’ll have plenty for people to try if you are attending.
Bedroom I’m sleeping in awhile at the house. That’s my purse/belt on the end of the bed. More pictures of the house later.
We’re going to do a planning session and see about what we want to accomplish before going to the retreat hotel on Wednesday. Perhaps I’ll read or maybe write. I’m feeling a little inspired–something about not working helps–so I might pull out my laptop or iPad. I definitely would like to catch up on reviewing.
I’m planning on wearing my new Rainbow Gold Reviews (RGR) t-shirt or hoodie Wednesday that S brought us. I’ll try to post pictures once I get them. I brought my camera, but I have my phone camera too. There is something to say for ease of posting to social media with the phone camera.
So, I meant to post that I’m writing in NaNoWriMo this year before starting on the first. I intended to bog about my progress every day. I wanted to have a good flow of words and at least get around the average daily word count.
Not exactly how things went.
Started on the 3rd instead of the 1st. Never got around to that initial blog post. I’m sitting at 3120 words instead of about 6600. I have no motivation to get up to go to my computer. I could pull out my iPad but I really need a table or desk so my keyboard typing on it doesn’t cause the whole thing to drop. I’ve already cracked my screen (thanks cat) and had to replace the screen. There are other things but I’m not going to bore you with my problems. You’re welcome. 🙂
It’s gotten to the point when I want someone to pee for me… Not physically possible but nice to dream about. 😀
Reviewing had been almost non-existent. Here or on RGR. Although, we have discussed a meet-up at some point. Tentatively planned for next year. I’ll post more once we finalize it. That’s part of the reason, I’m trying to write something to publish. Get some mad money in and try to pay for these conventions I want to go to.
I do continue to read and likely will review regularly again. If I could get the full time job to slow down, I’ll be happier. If you want to connect on NaNoWriMo.org, look for my name and the pic below.
Well, the scheduled date for Charon’s Dilemma was supposed to be August 15th, but that didn’t happen. It has been rescheduled for a date coming up very soon. I still can’t tell you when but I will be posting as soon as I see it. 🙂
For the ebook fans, the ebooks will release within a week after it posts to the group. I’ll post about that, too. Because you KNOW I’m going to go grab my copy of it. *big grin*
Can I say that I’m excited?
On a blog note, Moonbeams over Atlanta has reached 100 blog posts. There is a contest here and ends 8/13/2014. The post will tell you how to enter. It does have a question relating to the tour post it’s on so you will have to look at the tour. So, go. Enter. There’s a giveaway for a $10 gift card to the ARe, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble retailer of your choice…
Hello and welcome to Moonbeams over Atlanta for the new followers. Thank you to those that have been following.
My Love’s Landscape story, Charon’s Dilemma, is starting the editing process with an editor assigned to provide feedback to me from the annual Don’t Read in the Closet Event sponsored by M/M Romance Group in Goodreads.com. However, the group has started the Love’s Landscapes postings of the first of the stories yesterday. When totaled, and if all authors submit, there will be 212 stories available.
Best of all: It’s Free!
To see them as they release, join the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads. The Love’s Landscape link above will get you to the folder where they are all at. Later this summer (maybe fall), the eBook versions and the Anthologies will release.
When mine releases, I will post it here for easy access. Again, you have to be a member (and 18+ to join) to view them before they go the general populous.
Dreamspinner Press is having a Fireside Chat on
February 22, 2014 at 5 pm EST! (2 pm PST for me)!
I have the honour of being a part of a new Dreamspinner event called a Fireside Chat. It will be hosted on Google Hangouts by Ariel Tachna and feature Amy Lane, Charlie Cochet and me, Rhys Ford. I’ll be posting a link to the live chat as soon as I get it and it will be available on Youtube shortly afterwards.
What do I need from you? How about some questions? For any of the authors! We’ll be answering fan questions, maybe doing some readings and I’m debating moving one of the pictures in my living room so I can hang my jackalope head behind me. His name is Buck. He’s very lovely.
