Off Deadline! On Deadline!

I’m getting ready to turn in A Silver Wolf Christmas, just waiting on my final beta reader. It’s due Nov 1. I think someone made a mistake because last time I checked, that’s Saturday. 🙂

Good news is? All the beta readers have loved A Silver Wolf Christmas and Call of the Cougar!

And I’m off deadline! NOT.

Even when I’m off deadline from contracted books, I set my own deadlines. My readers expect it. Right? So Phantom Fae will be out in December. I just received another beta read for Call of the Cougar, so one beta read left after that and I’ll be able to publish that in another week or so. Those are my other book deadlines.

But I also had remodeling deadlines. Trying to get them done before the last readers convention of the year. Trying to get them done before my kids come in to see me for Thanksgiving.

And bear deadlines. Christmas is coming!!! 🙂

Christmas always sneaks up on me. One minute, it’s at the end of the year. The next, it’s in a couple of days. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN???

This looks more burgundy from the picture, but it’s more purple/plum purple in color. Really pretty. I have another made for another order also. 🙂

So yes, lots and lots of bear deadlines. I have a lot…let me count…I have 15 bears made that I need to finish. I will have to set a few days aside just to embroider paws!

And…probably next week, I’ll have NEW deadlines. I just got a note asking what my expected mss deadlines will be for the next 4 books!!! So you see, I had a few minutes reprieve for contracted deadlines. 🙂

I set the first for Mar, because I have two trips in Feb and two in April. The next in May, I think. Anyway…trying to give myself about 11 weeks to write books because of trips in between. And edits. Don’t forget the edits. All those books keeping popping back for first edits, second edits, and final proofing. and final, final proofing. 🙂

Okay, so I’m off to make more changes to Call of the Cougar and work on some more teddy bears! Because I got more orders this morning! And yes, I’m working on Phantom Fae also. Hopefully, the tile guys will be done today! 🙂 <3

Have a super great day!!! 🙂

Oh, wait, it’s Halloween today!! Happy Halloween!

Mixing and Matching Halloween with Non-Halloween Decorations

Halloween figures and red sky1 copy (800x631)

I had a black and white cat for nearly 17 years and so my mother gave me lots of adorable miniature artist designed black and white cats and pandas. The one kitty cat was so upset when the ghost said, “Boo!” that she fainted dead away.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. But with their jack-o-lanterns and the witch’s lantern (which happens to be a lantern that goes to a Christmas light string), lol, so see? …it’s perfect to mix and match with decorations and still give them that Halloween feel.  I’m all set!

Do you decorate for Halloween?
