The Three Hundred and Eighty-fourth Post: The One Where I Wonder When It’s a Healthy Focus…

I’m about halfway through edit Valentina’s Feast. If everything works out, I am looking at a late June release (depends on how fast my editor can turn around reading it). I can’t state how excited I am in that I’ve finally finished another novel and I am getting another one beta read to make changes (Romance with Advantage), that one might come out closer to the end of the year, depending on things. Everything is finally coming together.

I’m focusing on getting these two novels done – so everything else has been pushed back to either the end of the year, or just doing it during Pander-monium. That will be the real test for me. Basically, it’s twelve Nanowrimos one right after the other. I’m not gonna lie…I’m a little intimidated, but I can do it.

OK – enough about that.

I’m mad at Amazon, right now. I put in an order for a subscription for Digital Photography in January. I understand that it was going to not get here until May. I wasn’t happy about it, but I accepted it and waited…then the week of delivery came…and nothing. I sent a message. I waited another week. Another message…nothing. A third message and I talked to someone in customer support.

“It looks like it got lost in the mail.”

I’m mad that this was just turned off with a “sorry, dude” and “we’ll give you store credit”. I was looking forward to the magazine, and I got nothing.

I guess I’ll try to find it in Barnes and Noble. Let them get my money.

Sorry – not happy. Also, not learned my lesson because I ordered Dead Kennedy’s Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables and the best time I can get is “by 10 PM today”.

Yeah…this is going to be fun.

Enough of that.

I can’t wait for the movie theaters to re-open. The saddest thing I have ever seen is the empty parking lot of my local movie spot. I miss the smell of popcorn, the lights going dim. I even miss teasers. I still watch movies at home, but it’s not really the same thing.

There’s not much else here. I’m laser-focused on Valentina’s Feast to the point of mania, and I’m letting everything else go to the wayside for now. I’m mad at Amazon and running out of good podcasts to binge.

Other than that – I’m doing fine. Thanks for dropping by, and I’ll try to have more for y’all next week. Please bear with me. Thanks.
