Spring Is Here!

Phew, that was a tough winter. But it is almost 60 degrees outside, as I write this, and it is wonderful. I am so sick of bad weather that I would be happy if I never saw another winter again.

Captain Marvel

We watched Captain Marvel last week. It was really good! Like, really good. So much of the music in it was stuff I used to listen to. One thing that surprised me, without really giving anything important away for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, is that they found so many cars from the early 90’s for all of the scenes early on. There were seriously a lot of cars there, and they were all period appropriate. I don’t think they were CGI or anything, so one of the places out there that rents cars to the studios for these movies apparently has a large quantity of era-appropriate vehicles. Whatever the case Go See The Movie. You won’t regret it.

Brynne 3 is coming. I’ll be revealing the title soon. I think I’m done editing, so it’s now just down to formatting for release and you will all get to see it. Finally.

Everybody have a great weekend!

Closing In On A Release

The mysterious, as yet still untitled (really ought to do something about that, I suppose) book that is number 3 in the Non-Vampire series will be finished up very soon. Very, very soon. And then I’ll release this thing so I can move on to editing one of my other stories.

Right now I’m letting my beta reader (aka my wife) read through it and give me her opinions and let her catch anything I missed as far as typos and such. I’ve gone over it several times already, so I think it’s about as clean as I can get it, so I don’t think she’ll find a whole lot.

But she did come up with a couple of little tweaks on how to clarify certain little areas in the story. This is interesting, because I didn’t even realize those areas needed clarified until she mentioned it. Being the author, I of course already know what Brynne is thinking, so it didn’t occur to me in those cases that others may not. These are very small changes, like possibly adding a couple of paragraphs in total, but I do think they will improve things. Any little things she can find to improve the story is just a bonus at this point.

What else is going on? Hmm, let’s see…

Well, there are about sixty bajillion potholes in the roads around here, because of this tough winter. We have small cars. Small cars that can be swallowed by large potholes. If you don’t hear from us for a long time, hire a crane and start checking potholes. Bring cookies.

I’ve been playing around with a program called FireAlpaca lately. It’s a free graphics program, and I really like it so far. Does it have every feature that the Adobe products have? No. Does it run quickly and not bog down the computer like Adobe? Yes. I’m not ever going to be a professional artist or anything, but I like to doodle in it sometimes. Plus, I touch up images for my book covers, so it’s nice to try out new software now and then.

And now a weekend. Hopefully a good one, but we’re supposed to get snow Saturday and Sunday. Again. The desert is sounding better all the time, isn’t it?

Have a good weekend, everyone!

qCayGKVIZQ LeHbvqgUGb

Hi everyone!

So at this point qCayGKVIZQ LeHbvqgUGb is the best option I’ve come up with for a title for my work in progress.

Titles are so hard to come up with!

Seriously, I can’t find one that will work. I’m almost to the point of using that above, just because nothing else seems to work any better. It’s so frustrating. Write the book, go through several rounds of edits, get really close to release time, and still no title!

*sigh*

I’ll come up with something. I feel like I have a title floating in the back of my mind, and maybe I just need to get out of its way so it can come forth. It’s in there, tickling around, just waiting to burst out.

What is everyone else up to? Everyone else as sick of winter as I am?

Have a good weekend!
