You Heard It Here: Gearing Up!

I can’t speak for anyone but myself when I say I just can’t wait until Imminent Danger is out! ImminentDanger_highresMan, I could stare at this cover for days. (In fact, it’s possible I’ve done that already!)

I admit it’s been way too long since I’ve released a book. Working in television is an absolute time suck. Don’t get me wrong… I love my work. Actually, I love both my jobs! They just both take up a ton of time.

I know I’m not the only one out there with a busy schedule, but some days it doesn’t matter. (Like on those thirteen and fourteen hour days on set that seem never-ending.) I always take my computer to the set in hopes of getting a few minutes of work done, but I’ve discovered it’s almost impossible. The need to get outside and breathe fresh air for a few minutes (and get off the dark sound stage) pretty much trumps my desire to stay in the dark sound stage and work on my computer. Maybe that makes me a lazy writer, but honestly, I’ve given up berating myself for not fitting in work on those crazy long days. I figure if my soul needs sunlight and a chai latte then by God, my soul will get it. LOL.

Regardless of all that… I am gearing up for book #5  in the Adrenaline Highs and I hope you’ll bear with my excitement for the next month or so because it’s probably all I’ll be talking/blogging about!

And speaking of blogs, I have quite the blog tour scheduled so I hope you’ll stop in at one or two just to say hi and get a sneak at an excerpt or two!

I WOULD like to know that I’m not the only one who’s crazed and crazy with multiple jobs that take up massive amounts of hours. Anyone else out there working a couple 14 hour days during the week or am I the only one?

  1. Yikes! 14 hours…that’s a looooong day, (I don’t care how much you love the work)! I’m lucky enough to write full time right now, but, even so, I have to admit I haven’t clocked any 14 hour days lately. When it comes to writing, 8 hours is pretty much my limit. :}

    Congratulations on your gorgeous cover and your upcoming release. I don’t know how you do it, but I’m glad you do!

    • Hi Sam,
      You’re sweet. I don’t know how I do it either, honestly. And if I’m really being honest, I don’t think I DO do it. Haha.

      In fact, I’ve got your latest release sitting on my iPad waiting to be read and I haven’t had the time to crack that puppy open! But I can’t wait to get started on it. You’ve become my latest auto-buy! Thanks for dropping in!

  2. I work in television, too, Dee, but mine is one of the sit-in-the-office all day regular type jobs, with only the occasional crisis that needs more than eight hours to deal with. But I have to admit that it feels weird to me to be writing or editing at the office, so I don’t do much of that. When I write, I lose track of time and what else is around that needs to be done and I doubt the managers would like that. So, I usually use some of my lunch hour or other odd free minutes during the day to catch up a bit on social media, check website and book stats, or maybe do some online research, quick things that I can pop into and out of easily. I have done 14-hour days in the studio before, when I was much younger, but I couldn’t handle those anymore!

    Congrats on the upcoming new release!

    • Hi Kadee,
      Thank you! I hear ya! I get lost in my books too, so I usually do the same as you and use a few minutes at lunch to try and keep up with social media. In the old days I could maybe write a little bit, but this show is so labor intensive that by the time I got in the zone to write anything, I’d have to be back on set. Thanks for coming by!
