Monday Update

Now that I've started a couple new projects, I'm going to update you on ALL OF THEM!  Yay!  Lucky you!


And yes, I've been playing with my account and I now know how to post multiple pictures!  Mwahahahaha!

But I won't torment you too much.  

Without further ado...

Aurumenas:  Second draft is complete.  After taking a break for a week, I started reading through it to find any plot gaps.  I'm not focusing on typos or spot edits at this point because I want to make sure my book as a whole works first.  I'm halfway through it at this point and will hopefully have it all read by tomorrow.  My betas are being very helpful with this and I promise to bake them all cookies when the book is done.  I've heard I make fabulous cookies.

Hansel and Gretel:  Though I really fell into this and got a lot of words down, I'm slowing up a bit to focus on Aurumenas edits.  I don't want to confuse the voices.  That being said, research is still ongoing and if anyone has any first hand experience with northern Utah, I need to talk to you.

Army Strong (or a fobbit's tale--still haven't decided):  Going beautifully!  Voice confusion is not something I need to worry about considering the MC in this is me and the MC in Aurumenas is definitely not me.  As you can see, though, I'm stuck on the title.  Both of them I like for humorous reasons.  Army Strong because it's the new theme for the military and I joined as a 107 lb pipsqueak, and a fobbit's tale because that's an inside joke in the military to refer to certain deployed personnel.  I need opinions!  

And because I equally love hearing about everyone else's status on their WIPs, please share!
