Busy getting A Gingersnap Cat Christmas ready for print! In the meantime, I posted an excerpt on its book page–scroll down to the bottom to read it.
As previous reported, A Gingersnap Cat Christmas was written last year but didn’t get out in time for Christmas 2017. So once I was finished, I vowed to use the extra time before Christmas 2018 to turn it into a print book.
So here it is! Being worked on in the free program Scribus.
I’m sitting here realizing that it’s kinda wild that I went from knowing nothing about book production to, you know, making pages of a novel I wrote. When the proof’s actually in my hands, though, then I’ll know I can conquer the world.
Hi, everybody! February knocked me down with a nasty cold/bronchitis illness so I’m still getting into the swing of things.
A Gingersnap Cat Christmas was finished, um…January, probably? And is in “post” so to speak. But since I missed my deadline, rather than releasing it right away, I’ll be looking into making it into a print book for next Christmas!
In the meantime, please enjoy the fabulous finished cover!
(My husband desperately wants me to animate the kitten rising up…Any volunteers?)
In other news, my nosferatu novel hit 40K…and it’s just getting started! Hoo-wee!
The good news is: the content’s finished (almost made it to 40K!), it’s in my proofreader’s hands, and the story’s cute!
The bad news: I missed my Christmas deadline (obviously)!
But that’s OK. As soon as it’s ready, it will be posted here for your reading pleasure (even if you don’t get to it ’til Christmas 2018!).
Thanks for sticking with me, folks!
Currently on the docket: Frenchies 2, Nosferatu Novel, SCVK edits.
Wow! I just finished typing up what I have so far of A Gingersnap Cat Christmas and I’ve reached 31,000 words! A few connecting scenes, a proofread and a cover, and this’ll be out! Hopefully before Christmas! *fingers crossed FURIOUSLY!*
A Gingersnap Cat Christmas has hit 20,000 words and is still going! (I’m still in the process of typing up what I’ve hand-written.) I didn’t achieve my Thanksgiving goal, but now I’m curious to see how long it ends up!
My plan is to type up what I have, fill in a couple of missing scenes, make a cover while the typos get checked, and…well, hopefully publish it before Christmas! Whew!
Whoo! My latest story, A Gingersnap Cat Christmas, just hit 10,000 words! Since I want it finished by Thanksgiving, I’ve been trying to write on it even on days when I’m Not Feeling It™. So far, it’s working! Even on my argleblargle days I’m managing between 700-1400 words an hour. Stay tuned to see if I manage this audacious goal!
