A Prepublished Novel in the Process of Revisions and Rewrites

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Well, here we are once again at my weekly author spotlight but unfortunately this week's author had to reschedule her spotlight. As you may know my guest was to be Romance Author, Mallary Mitchell.  Something has pulled her away but no worries, I will reschedule her early in the new year. 

I don't know about you but the last several weeks has been very busy for me and not in the arena of my writing.  That thing called 'real life' has dug in and pulled me out of my author mode.  I don't see any light at the end of the reality tunnel until into the new year. I did, however, jot down the completed story for a new erotic novella story recently. I need to lengthen it a bit and flesh it out a bit. But, I have generated an interest in reviewing it for publication after querying the premise.  So, I am doing some personal work.

I'd like to take a moment to update you on some things that I have not been able to get to of late. 

My newsletter is on hiatus until after the New Year, and I've decided I will only put it out every quarter.  It seems to make more sense that way.  I am also interested in hearing your ideas on distribution.

I am currently sending a special notice out when the newsletter is available through my loop, Dayana's Happenings, so members can download their copy.  I notice that some of my peers send it directly to their mailing list. I'm not sure how to format the newsletter for this type of destribution so any aid is appreciated.

My participation in the loops has suffered immensely the last few months. If anyone is reading this from my various loops please accept my sincere apologies.  I hope things to loosen up after the holidays.

I spent last week down with the nasty flu strain going around.  But I am feeling much better and moving on to get the homefront ready for the holidays.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season filled with happiness and joy.



  1. Hi Dayana. Thanks for the update and I'm glad you're feeling better. But I know what you mean about 'real' life getting in the way. I'm thinking 'tis the season, too! Take care and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you to find time to write :)

  2. Hello Again Dayana, My apologies to all. I was taken out by a kidney stone. I really hate those things...

  3. Merry Christmas! Hope the New Year is a little less crazy for you :-)

  4. Thanks for stopping by ladies. I'm feeling better these days but now perfect. This thing seems to linger. Geez...
