I’m going to be heading into the GRL whirlwind today. Although I’m writing this on Sunday, it’s going to be a bit crazy in a couple of hours as I pack up and make sure I’ve got everything. Although I live down the street… literally… I’m going to be a the hotel and working.
Because conferences are working.
I’ve sent out Fish Stick Fridays ARCs and went to Goodreads. I’ve been very good and ignored GR for a while now. I have no idea what I was thinking. Something caught my attention in a review on Fish and Ghosts and reminded me of something someone once said about the book a while ago. This someone thought the ghosts were unrealistic.
Still makes me go huh in my brain when it surfaces. Now I can’t lay claim to knowing what a vengeful ghost looks like so I’m really going to have to say maybe they’re right. But there’s that huh moment anyway.
Writing is a lot like that. Not only can’t you please everyone, your writing seems to only be read by a hell of a lot of people who it’s not for. That’s normal. No escaping it. Just keep being you and write.
I’m getting my head around Kai and his book which still has no name. I have a beginning and a plot. I just have to get the threads together and go. My brain’s been lean on that as I scramble to get life and GRL under control.
I will probably have swag to give out after GRL. Like back stage passes and keychains. I’ll put up a who wants something notice when I get back and see if any of you want one.
There needs to be Hoxne Grange and Hellsingers swag. Or I think so. What do you guys think? I’ll probably make t-shirts for Potter’s Field, Rook’s store at some point. I also have a coffee shop shirt to make and haven’t had the time.
But swag. Yep. Swag. So much swag. *grins*
