Well, I wouldn’t say “nothing” is new. The times, they are a-changin’, and I’m simply trying to get my seat belt buckled before the zero-to-60 whiplash hits.
For the past two years, I’ve written New Year’s Resolutions posts—like, legit resolutions, with laid-out goals and whatnot. For some reason, that doesn’t feel quite right for 2013. So I thought I’d simply update you (since I’ve become a lackadaisical blogger in the past few months) on the current goings-on in the Life of Edie, and how I’m kicking my year off in style.
January 2013 in publishing…
- Wild Burn releases tomorrow (eek!).
- I’ve turned in my The Corrupt Comte revisions to my extremely patient and long-suffering editor.
- Real work has begun on Wild Chase, the next title in the Wild State series.
January 2013 in resolutions…
- I’ve started training for a half marathon. I know, I know. But this is my big resolution this year: to run a half marathon by this summer with my bestie. So I’m at the gym I recently joined every morning, on a treadmill, glaring at everyone. As you do.
- I’m cooking. No, really. After the holidays, I now own a crock pot, a wok, and a food processor. It’s, like, almost a regular thing now. I’ve just got to keep it up.
- I tried to put “growing my hair out” on my list of resolutions, but my mother mocked me so much for it that it’s relegated to a measly goal tucked away in the back of my mind. (PS: I’m growing my hair out. SO THERE, MOM. [sticks out tongue])
January 2013 in blogging…
- I’ve got two interviews with two runner-type friends (one a marathoner) in keeping with the theme of my resolution, with attached book giveaways.
- I’m starting an epic re-watch of Doctor Who. I’m writing a post on OTPs, fandoms, and romance in popular British television that I hope to get up by the end of the month.
And that’s the state of things for me at the moment. I know–it’s awesome. If you wanted to be similarly awesome, please go out and buy Wild Burn today, tomorrow, forever and ever… The hero shoots the heroine in the first chapter. So there’s that.
