It’s summer break. Wish me luck.

The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind.

First of all, the PLC launched our first episode of Curb Chat, our new podcast. (If you haven’t yet, be sure to check it out. It’s lots of fun!)

Still, in the midst of it all, I’ve been managing to steal away bits of quiet time, here and there. And in those moments of stillness, I found…


Yummy new ideas came creeping out of the quiet and whispered in my ear.

I know my editor is going to have notes and line edits for book two any day now, but in the meantime, I’m listening to the voices and bringing these new ideas to life.

Granted, the kids are on summer break now, so finding quiet time will be hit and miss. For example, I had to stop writing this blog post three times to help my daughter draw a picture of Pikachu. As soon as I’m done writing this, we’ll work on our cosplay costumes for Phoenix Comicon this coming weekend. But maybe, hopefully, by the time they go back to school, I’ll not only have book two revisions all completed, but also have the beginnings of a couple new novels in the works as well. It’s all a matter of finding those quiet moments.

Wish me luck.
