Latest Cover for Redemption

Well, what a lousy three day weekend.  Trouble on the home front, trouble with friends.  : /

Things were a little better today, and I got to sit down and make another try at a cover for Redemption.  You can check out some of my previous attempts in the last post, here.  Making covers is always a fun way to relax when I'm too tense to write or edit.  : )

This cover is by no means a final draft...just me, getting some ideas out before I make a final decision.  Comments always welcome.

Editing beyond bedtime

I just got off another two chapters of Redemption to my editors.  :)  I've discovered that when I write or edit after bedtime, it's usually not a good thing.  I don't know why I continue to allow it to happen.

My cats are sitting here, anxiously awaiting the moment that I close the laptop--they've trained themselves that when this happens, the bedtime routine begins.  It includes a refill of their food bowls, so you can see why they have an interest in my writing habits.

I don't know why writing is a late night venture for me; there's something about the dark that gets me going, and something about exhaustion that lowers my inhibitions just enough.  Of course, I know I'll wake up tomorrow and have a horrible "what was I thinking" moment when I read what I wrote, but oh well.

That's what editors are for, right?  (Love you, editors.  I owe you coffee.)

Arrival of the Traveler on Smashwords

Why a free book?  Sales were awesome in January, and it has really given my confidence a boost.  I've been writing since I was an awkward teenager and before, but Arrival has been my first venture into publishing.  It has been on the market for 6 months now, and that's something to celebrate.  Thank you all for making this adventure such a wonderful experience.
