Ack — I didn’t realize it’s been a MONTH since I’ve blogged! Hexe, our new King Shepherd puppy, has taken up a LOT of time, and I’ve also been insanely busy with revisions and pre-release stuff for Immortal Rider. We’re down to less than a month until Limos and Arik hit the shelves! Woo hoo! VERY excited for this book. I know Eternal Rider was a little hard to get into for a lot of readers, but now that the set-up has been laid out in that book, the others start off faster and with a bang!
Puppy has settled in well! She’s so damned smart, though we do have a few things we have to work through. She HATES to be brushed. So we’re slowly using positive reinforcement to make it less horrible for her. She’s also obsessed with the cat, and over two weeks later, we’re still trying to get those two to play nice.
Our biggest challenge is socialization. She loves other dogs, but she’s extremely reserved around people, so I’m taking her downtown today to walk around and hopefully get used to being a little more social and teach her that it’s not necessary to bark at people when she’s on a leash.
Other than those things, though, she’s been wonderful! She’s a happy, lovable, playful pup, and yay, she’s housetrained! She had two accidents, but once I taught her to ring a bell on the door with her paw, she figured out how to tell us she wants to go out.
In other news, Amazon finally fixed Immortal Rider’s Kindle edition release date, so it’s back to November 22nd, just like the print book! I’ll also have a cover to show you for Lethal Rider very soon. Unfortunately, I can’t post the blurb until Immortal Rider releases, because it’s a HUGE spoiler!
Also, today I’m over at the Pop Culture Divas blog, talking about staying positive while writing. Not surprisingly (for those who know me,) it includes champagne!
