Sunday Small Talk

A day late. For a lot of reasons but mainly because a) I don’t have much to say b) I’m running around like a fool trying to get things ready for the birthday trip I’m taking. I leave Wednesday and I won’t be doing a small talk next sunday because I’ll be gone, it’s father’s day and my birthday.

My main accomplishment is finishing up the last edits on Blood Red Roulette. The only things left to do for that is the galley proofs and my marketing plan. Speaking of which it’s a little over 2 month to the cover reveal and boy are you going to love it!

The only thing I have for you otherwise is a ton of writing links, several for marketing that I really need to sit down and absorb.
