Hot Off the Press

You know it’s gonna be a crappy week when the temperature for Monday hits 107. That was last Monday. And my co-workerย  was sick. She was sick for a couple of days poor thing. But it was a commissions and month end week for us in accounting and I spent two days alone powering on in the horrid 100+ degree heat getting stuff done. On not much sleep cause you see, I have no AC at home. Oh yeah. Talk about hot off the press. Oy.

But despite the heat and my pal Jojor’s illness, I got it all done ON TIME. Yes. On time. Man, I felt like a superstar. More month end duties today but if I can survive last week, this week should be a breeze.

In addition to what I was dealing with at the day job, I had a deadline for MLR Press. And Afterburner went to Kris Jacen pretty much on time. I’m wriggling with excitement too because these heroes are two of my favorites so far. On top of finishing Afterburner, I finished my edits for Rock My World. Ahead of schedule. I hope I made my editor Jilly happy with that!Then I made the cover of my Christmas Cowboys story for 2010. I’ll show that off on Thursday though.

Yesterday, just to make my feelings of accomplishment rise even higher, the sixth book of the Tales of the Darkworld released early. Yep Hot off the Press for real! Sunstroked is a M/M story, not quite as long as the last few books, but it’s hot and sweet and the heroes were introduced to readers in the other books in the series. And yes, to make the icing even sweeter on my cake, Common Ground will be going to print later this month! I’m so excited with all the stuff going on right now that even the high temps and high humidity we’ve had have not wilted my enthusiasm!

I’ve got lots of promo type stuff going on all month too. The first one I want to mention is the Raven Scavenger Hunt. You all loved having Mandy and Michelle guest here and now they’re having a month long scavenger hunt of which I am part. There’s lots of prizes to win so check it out!

On to a Marcus for this first Monday of October!

Oh yeah. Marcus in motion is like a work of art!

Wishing you all a cool scavenger hunting Monday!

  1. You’re a go getter, Lex, and proved it this week with all you accomplished while fighting extreme heat.

    Congrats on the early release of Sunstroked!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Lex,

    I can’t believe you live in Southern California and don’t have an air conditioner! That’s pure torture on some days, like the one we had last week.

    Congrats on all you accomplished last week, and having your book out. You rock, girl.

    Does turning your book in mean that you can come to OCC this weekend? Linda Lael Miller is our speaker, and it’s our big birthday bash. I know you said November, but I just thought I’d ask. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope you’re enjoying the drizzly weather we’re having this morning.

  5. In downtown Los Angeles we had a degree or two on you, but I do have an old, choking window a/c in the dining room that will cool you off if you sit very, very close, which helped some. I’m surprised you didn’t end up sick yourself with no escape like that!
    It is much nicer this week isn’t it? Glad you got it all done and looking forward to readingy your next release!

  7. Wow! Major rise in temps! Sounds like your week was very hot in all areas – congrats on the early release. We were super hot here too and all of us were sick, like your co-worker – nasty! Glad it’s cool this week. I can get more done!
