Stuff I’ve Been Doing:
I’ve had a lot going on in the past few weeks that is soooooper exciting but also a lot of work. I went ahead and incorporated Pixiegrind Ink publishing, hired three new early readers, finished writing CLOSET FULL OF BONES, got an amazing cover done by the talented Dean Samed. CLOSET FULL OF BONES is now in edits, which makes me stress-eat all the things. The next Marnie Baranuik Between The Files story, STIFF COMPETITION, is almost finished as well. Then I start work on the next mystery, LAST BITE, and book six of the Marnie Baranuik Files, which currently has no title. Boy howdy, it’s going to be a busy spring!
We also signed a contract for audio rights for TOUCHED, DEATH REJOICES, and LAST IMPRESSIONS with Tantor Media! ~Major perk~ I get to approve the narrator, and I’m really excited about it.
AND Pixiegrind Ink has hooked up with 16 Hand Marketing to bring all the paper goods to all the reader-type folks. Is that what we’re doing? That sounds suspiciously like book trafficking. (Is “book trafficking” a thing?)
Things I Have NOT Been Doing:
I have NOT been dicking around playing old video games for weeks on end. Especially not original Everquest, which is free to play on Steam. *ahem* Or I hear it is. I wouldn’t know, because I’m a serious corporate business woman now and I’m far too busy with… I dunno, writing off my morning Timmies? What am I supposed to be doing, here?
I have NOT been stress-eating like I said before. Nope. No sirree-Bob, I sure haven’t been buying chocolate bars in the check-out line at the grocery store, tearing into them in the car in the parking lot, and stealth-gobbling entire bars while pretending I’m still on my diet. Nope. Cuz that would be bad, and I’m a good girl. *slow grin*
Look forward to catching up with y’all soon. xo -AJ
