I’m finally back from Christmas, I know two days was more than enough, . I haven’t been slacking on everything just writing in the blog. In fact I’ve been editing Legacy and it’s really coming along. The books I picked up last week are really helping, and I’d taking out the fillers that Legacy doesn’t need. I haven’t re-recorded yet, but I may have enough to do that next week. I’m hoping to get thru Chapter 3. I’m on Two now and I think I’m almost done with it.
The three books that I’ve been using besides a dictionary, are The Big Book of Words You Should Know, Random House Webster’s grammar, usage, and punctuation, and last but not least The Author’s toolkit. If you’re a writer and you haven’t looked at these, you should.
During my break I’ve also been working on obtaining some new books to review for PBD and my reviews. I’ve picked up a few that I think will be promising, plus I have two that PBD has asked me to read as well. I can’t tell you when the reviews will be posted, I just downloaded a few of the books last night and I have another one to add that I got today. I’ll keep you post though.
On another note, I’ve updated the book review page and article page, so if you missed the post from PBD you can read them here. I know I still owe you guys some recipes and I promise they are coming, I’ve just had a lot of writing material pop in my head and I want to get it all on paper/computer.
My winter toe socks collection is finished so you won’t see any more toe sock pictures, I know the socks are a little crazy but they are comfy. And cute.
I finished the changes in chapter one and I’m on too Chapter two. I’m digging the changes, Flyboy is going to read it for me and I’m going to do the voice recording on my phone. I’ll let you how it goes, if I like the recording I’ll see if I can post it. The intro I think you’ll enjoy.
That’s it for today, Flyboy and I are seeing the latest Mission Impossible.
Today I started recording Legacy, one so I can hear what it sounds like, and another so I can share parts with you. I deleted a few tries but I got two recordings. For me, I don’t like recording, my voice sounds weird, and I don’t read well. That may be because of the dyslexia, listening to myself aloud I found that I get tongue tied. Its not the best when trying to figure out what should be changed. So I’ll be making the recording prefect before you guys hear it. But I’ll try and have something for you shortly.
Well we are almost home from a ALS graduation and I’m tired and hurting, so I’ll leave you tonight.
I love waking in the middle of the night because I have edits running through my head. Yes I had to get up in the middle of the night to write down edits so I wouldn’t forget them. I so love when my writing thoughts interrupt my sleep. Last night wasn’t the first time and I’m sure it won’t be the last. And now you know why my tagline is an author’s dreams take flight, because my dreams get invaded by my writing. lol
I’ve finished all the reviews I’ve been working on. I’ll post all the reviews this week plus you’ll see them on PBD. I just don’t know when, so I’ll post the reviews for you. I did just finish reading another YA that wasn’t to bad it was Lauren Kate’s latest, Passion and I’ll try and get a review for that done as well. She has one more coming out for the series. I’m not sure if I’m in love with it. I really like the first book, the second was pretty good this one I’m not sure about. So I’m not sure how the review will go. You know I don’t like to give spoilers and for the review to be any good that’s what I’d have to do. But I’ll give it a shot anyway.
Pitches I’ve been doing a lot of pitches. Savvy Author lets its members pitch to editors its only three lines but hey three lines is three lines and its getting the word out there. So that’s what I’ve been doing pitching Legacy. Here’s the pitch.

Hopefully I’ll get a bite.
I’m thinking about sending some of my poems in to see if I can get them published in Magazines, I’ll let you guys know how that goes.
