I’ve gotten in the first 2 of my 9 feedback responses from beta readers. Exciting, exciting. Also, it really makes you realize you gots work to do. Just when you think you had it written already. Jeepers.

Holy crap. I just sent out a beta reading email to my lovely readers. They now have the files. Including Azlin Bloor and Elizabeth Hahn (check those inboxes). This is my first time doing a beta readership, and I’m now just gonna sit on my hands and wait impatiently until the feedback comes back. How do writers do this regularly? Maybe it’s because I’m new?

All I know is I’m gonna be refreshing my email like a crazy mamajama for the duration of the reading period. Excited. So excited. But also scared. Excited?

Editing my backside off on the first book in my female detective series. Tonight I’ve got it down to 3 chapters and an epilogue. Phew… this will be draft 2, and hopefully a readable one. That’s the plan. Something I can read and decide if I’m doing good. If I’m on the wrong track, or if I’m missing anything. And a few special beta readers might get a chance to read and let me know if I’ve really jacked up or not.

But for now, I’m feeling great because I’m almost at a huge milestone for this piece. And because it’s a huge milestone for me. I’ve never been able to follow through this much on a single book before. This will be the first time I’ve ever had a book complete enough that it will be readable. I’m feeling pretty good about that.

And to celebrate, here’s a song that’s sort of an anthem for a supporting role in the book series. She’s named Perry Cate and a journalist. She makes her debut in the first book. She’s very new to me, but I love her a lot. She’s gonna be a great character and I hope you all will feel the same way when you meet her.

Benjamin Little and Bogart’s Opera (short story and opportunity).

I have two new short stories this month to go into my I Will Kill you for $5 project I run through Fiverr. The project is simple: you pay $5 and I kill you in a short story or flash fiction.

The newest one is a sci-fi and crime blend. And kat Folland this story crosses over with your own, how cool is that?

Inside the office were a host of police officers in uniform. Some were bent over examining evidence on the rug, and others were in a corner speculating.

“Personal, I say,” one officer argued, “What with all the blood.”

“You always say that,” the other said.

Mercedes was enraged. She was having a bad day, mental breakdown, and now she was expected to be civilized. She wanted to punch someone… again.

“If this isn’t hell, get me a bus ticket.”
