Needless Rambling and a Cat Picture

OMG, I am killing the to-do list this week. I am quite excited about it. I would be even more excited if I could finally wrap up this audio editing business! I have about 10-20 minutes of finished audio left, which should probably equate to at least 6-8 hours of editing work. Yes, it does take that long. I think the worst part about it is that I can’t listen to music while I’m doing it. Music makes everything better.

But it will be done soon. Soon!

I’m lucky that I’ve had time at all. This last month has been bonkers. We got a new roof put on the house due to storm damage, a newish truck because the old one was dying. My daughter moved out. She’s 20, so it’s not like she ran away or anything. I miss her, despite the fact that she’s right down the street. The location makes it better. She took Merlin, though, because he belongs to her. That makes it slightly worse. I miss him, too.

There is a small silver lining. We’re setting up a guest room/office the spare bedroom. Our “office” has always been a corner of the bedroom, so that is pretty cool.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I’ve been reading Locke and Key, which is a comic book series written by Joe Hill, aka son of Stephen King. It’s really good stuff so far. It reminds me a little of The Haunting of Hill House

Also awesome and actually by Stephen King – the new IT movie. I never saw the original or read the book, so I can’t offer a comparison. I thought Bill Skarsgård was amazing. I watched him in Hemlock Grove, which I liked well enough, but I think his performance as Pennywise really showed he well can act.

Now, please enjoy this picture of Bleu. Adorable while asleep. A terror while awake.

a sad garage door and assorted shenanigans

The last couple of weeks have been crazy and not in a good way. I won’t go over it all because nobody likes a whiner. Let’s just sum it all up with this picture of my garage door from this morning.

sad garage door

Uh, yeah. That’s about right.

The garage door is fixed now. Yay! As for the rest of it…time heals, I guess.

I have a book that’s 99.9 percent ready to go. I’ll probably put that up this weekend. If you’ve been following along for the last month or so, it probably looks like I write really fast. HA! No, no. I just put the finishing touches on these two things at times which were very close to one another.

Once I settle on the description, I’ll slap it up on the internet. If you want to see the cover, it’s on my brand spankin’ new facebook page. Here’s the link to the page. The book is called Love and the Dark.

What else is going on. Oh, the book pages on the blog (above) are under construction. I’ve been doing a lot of clean-up as far as getting things on various websites to match and rearranging.

You might notice that I now have one page for grown-up books and another one for kid books. I have a middle grade title or two that I might get out this year, so that’s why those are there. I actually have one finished, but I’d like to release two at the same time. Hence, the delay.

Current AnnaBeth word count is 35380. I’ve been a little slower lately due to various distractions, but I am feeling better now, so we move onward!
