This Time With Gusto...!

Well, hello everyone. I know I have been absent for a while, but I promise it hasn't been because I forgot about you all. Work and classes take up a lot of time. So much I have to now work on two projects instead of just the next installment for "The Executioner Trilogy." I have come up with a new concept as of yesterday that I will be soon working on, along with the other project. It is going to be a rework of the Snow White story that I'm sure most would've never thought of. Still thinking of a name for it, but I hope I will have one soon.

I'm standing here eating breakfast and typing away furiously. i have a decision rolling around in my brain. Mirador Publishing has shown an interest in my book. A HUGE interest at that. I am torn between choosing them to publish or not. I saw a thread on the Writer's WaterCooler that another author friend of mine had found regarding this group. There was only one good thing on that thread about it from one of their authors. So, I'm here listening to "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain and eating my cheesy eggs, bacon, and potato bread toast, thinking about the decision I need to make.

Now, I still need to send them the full manuscript, but that's still a huge decision in itself considering what I've read about them. What do I do? Do I jump at one of the 3 chances I've been given to go with a vanity publisher? Or do I turn them down? Hmmmm.....

This is very tough for me. I am truly torn....

My Editing Bender

Here is the plan for the weekend. Try to get this massive edit done today, and write my final paper for Research Methods of Psychology tomorrow. I have been at work on this major edit for a week or so now, but with work and school it seems like it's taking forever. While book sales online are doing somewhat better, they're not where I want them to be.

This is where I enlist the help of my readers. If you love it as much as I do, please spread the word. The word of mouth is a powerful thing and I plan to use it. As I sit here and watch "The Help" with my little sister, I am hopeful things will pick up soon.

Thank you to all my faithful readers in advance for helping me make my success possible!
