Latest News ~ Notes from Angela
Happy December!! I hope that you all had a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving! Is it just me or does this holiday season already seem to be flying by? October, November, and December are my favorite months of the year, and saying good-bye to both October and now November has my head spinning a little.
This month I have some very exciting news to share! The cover for my third novel, When the Black Roses Grow, was chosen by the creative team at Books and Benches for their December cover contest!
Voting starts on December 1st and runs though December 30th. If you love the cover as much as I do, please help me out and vote today! There is no registration requirements or login requirements. All you do is click on the cover title, the confirmation button you are human, and submit. It’s easy, just three little clicks! Your support means the world to me!
As for the rest of my little writer world, November was a decent month in regards to getting more done on the first draft stage of my 6th WIP, A Road Paved in Copper. While I didn’t quite make my goal word count—thanks to the amazing holidays—but I’m happy with the number. It is with great hope and all my fingers crossed that I can finish this draft by the end of the year or by mid-January at the latest.
The tentative release date is still set for May 2017, but I still don’t have an exact date. I’m playing around with a couple of them—either May 18, 2017 or May 23, 2017—but I still need to contact editors for scheduling. If you want to know more about this novel, click on the cover link and don’t forget to check back often for updates as well as an exact release day.
As for the homestead, we’re finally getting into some colder temperatures. There for a while I didn’t think if winter would ever come. The next few weeks is packed full of chores in gearing up for Christmas. Decorating, baking, and finally tackling the garden boxes before any freezing temps starting hardening the ground. Now the weeds are dead, they will be easy to pull. We are still on track for purchasing a cow next Spring. I’m so excited. I’ve been wanting to make this purchase for several years. Once she’s here, you can bet I’ll be blogging about her and the experience.
As for homeschool, we are still in catch up mode and are now just a week behind schedule instead of the two we started with at the beginning of November. For a while I was in a panic about the situation, but I’ve gotten to the point where it will happen when it happens. I’m ready for and anxiously awaiting our winter break for Christmas and New Years. Two glorious weeks where I can relax and not have to deal with anything educational. Nothing but Christmas movies and sitting around enjoying the time off.
Well, when I’m not in the middle of all my holiday baking. I’m both looking forward to that and dreading it. Mostly because I know I’ll want to eat everything I’m making. I see extra workouts in my future.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Ramadan, which ever you celebrate!
