Normal routine?

Between the holidays, illnesses, and more snow days than I can shake a stick at (because I’m not going out in that just to get a stick), getting back to a normal routine has been…challenging. It still hasn’t happened actually.

Which makes trying to add in new things to the routine difficult and puts me a little behind schedule. At least to my liking anyway. I’ve also been horrible about commenting on people’s blogs lately, though I’ve managed to read the posts. Forewarning, I might be going through a bunch of stuff and commenting soon. I might call some of them a wash on trying to comment on this far out.

In other news, I’ve found something interesting in responses from my beta readers so far: my reader group and my critique group have very different views on the same things. It leaves me scratching my head on what to do. I’m aiming for release of Shattered Illusions for this summer, but I’m reluctant to announce the date I have in mind right now. I’m working on a couple of different things at the moment regarding the books and I’ll share as soon as I have solid information. But… *squeee*

And then there were three #IWSG

Hope no one minds that I’m passing on this month’s question and just doing my own thing.

Book 3 is alpha ready. Has been for a few weeks now, but I’ve been editing it while Shattered Illusions is out to my beta readers, which is starting to come back now (so I need to get on the ball with final edits for that one). I’ve gone through this with the last two books and not being ready to let them go to see if the story is any good to anyone else.

It’s still scary to let it out to someone else. It could be compounded by also having another book closing in on being published – summer will come quickly despite the record snow outside.

And that’s record snow for the area, not me. I grew up in New England – can’t scare me with this.

Eventually I’ll send it. Just a few more edits…
