I could write a post trying to explain the insanity of what I'm currently juggling–but I think this picture pretty much sums it up. This is my desk at the moment …
And yes–the cat is typically there. It's why I'm not often able to WORK at my desk, and instead use it simply as The Place To Keep All The Important Things!
So basically, what you're seeing (in addition to my P&P desktop–hee) is three things with three very tight deadlines.
That pile on the left? Yeah, that's KEEPER 1st pass, which is due VERY soon.
That pile in the middle? Copyedits for LET THE SKY FALL. Due EVEN SOONER.
Oh, and that chaos to the right? That's all my brainstorming notes for KEEPER book 2, which is ALSO due very SCARILY SOON.
(There's also some other *fun* stuff on there you might be noticing…)
So… yeah. That is my life right now. Deadline upon deadline upon deadline. Now I know why my agent had a very serious conversation with me about “can I really handle this?” when we sold the second series. It is INTENSE.
But I am not complaining–AT ALL. I could not be happier or prouder to get to work on my books every day. It is truly an honor and I would not change it for a second. BUT, if I'm not blogging or tweeting or commenting on FB or replying to your emails (FYI guys, I'm about 2 months behind on email. My inbox has 464 unread messages. So if you are waiting to hear from me–that is why, and it's probably gonna be a while. SORRY!)
One of these days I WILL catch up. One stack of papers at a time. One day at a time. Until it's all finally done. In the meantime–you know where to find me!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I… will be working. (Well, mostly. I have an AWESOME author event on Sat night I will try to post pics from. But yeah… my deadlines demand the rest of my time)

Well, it’s finally here. The moment when store shelves get filled with shiny hardcovers and pre-orders ship and ebooks download and my precious book baby stops being mine. It’s a moment I’ve lived through ten times now (HOW IS THIS MY TENTH BOOK???) and yet it’s still a head-spinning mix of excitement and panic. Because I want you guys…
