How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Okay, I know technically summer isn't over yet. But since I've been MIA as far as blogging goes, I thought I'd report on what I've been doing since my last post.

1. Turned in my first round of revisions for The Paris Secret, which leads to the second thing I've been doing.

2. Waiting for my editor to send me my next round of revisions for The Paris Secret.

3. Wrote 40, 000 words ( so far) of an urban fantasy novel featuring a kick ass MALE protagonist, and having a little too much fun doing it!

4. Teaching myself how to use iMovie and working on a book trailer for The Paris Secret, which I will debut here just as soon I get cover art so I can finish it! Being completely stunned at how much great, free, stock footage and images you can find online (Just pay attention to those usage licenses!) and learning to love the term Public Domain!

5. Putting together bonus content for The Paris Secret to turn into a free app for iphone and droid!

6. Brainstorming promo ideas for promoting The Paris Secret. Any and all suggestions are welcome ; ).

7. Waiting to see if I placed in a contest that could lead to a new publisher for my Kendra series. Fingers crossed!!!!!

8. Reading some great books. I'll do a post on them shortly.

9. Spending too much time on twitter.

10. Laughing every time I see this adorable commercial!

So, how about all of you? What have you been up to this summer? Come on! Don't be shy!


  1. I'm a huge never-been-to-Paris francophile, and I loved the Kendra books so I'm really looking forward to The Paris Secret!

  2. Hi Phyllis! Thanks for stopping by. You would absolutely LOVE Paris! I'm dying to get back over there. Maybe next year! I'm so happy you enjoyed the Kendra books. I've got book 5 finished and if I can't find a new publisher will self-pub again. The Paris Secret is darker and edgier than my Kendra books. I hope you enjoy it ; ).
