...edits! Actually more like edits, edits and more edits. I'm currently on round one edits for my upcoming 1NS release, Sweet Revenge. How can a short story be so difficult to revise? Believe me, many ways. Decadent editors are demanding but encouraging. The best kind to work with.
And my wonderful editor for my paranormal Vitruvian Man stories, Cursed and Charmed, let me know she's starting on edits for the final book, Claimed. Likewise, the wise and talented editor for Blue Moon Over Bliss Lake will shortly be sending those my way.
Think August will be a busy month? Oh yeah. I also have two releases this month!
In one week...
August 16 is release day for Betting It All! Whenever the editors and publishers get extra excited about a story, it's a great sign. I'm trying to keep my own excitement contained, but it's been difficult. I love all my stories, of course, but this hero and heroine hold a special place in my heart.
And that cover's such a knockout! I'm definitely entering it into a few cover contests. :)
Then on August 30, Charmed will release - yay! This is a very cool followup to Cursed. More magic and mayhem, which I love. Decadent's working some behind-the-scenes magic with Cursed, so watch for some special sales on that first one very soon.
My cover reveal's been held up a bit but if anyone is willing to help me spread the news by posting the cover and blurb, I'd be very grateful! Just email me at cate.masters AT gmail.com. And I'm always happy to reciprocate of course.
This month's very special for personal reasons as well. My niece is getting married next Saturday! I'm so looking forward to it. I will be away the 17th-18th with likely no internet, so if you contact me, I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
