Juggling--an important part of being a writer

Sometimes I feel like I'm juggling. Yes, juggling.

I have all these things that I have to do every single day. I'm not going to include all that it takes just to live, be married, and run a household.

At the moment, I'm finishing up my latest Rocky Bluff P.D. crime novel. No, it's not the one that will be out in January. That one is already with the publisher. Once I've finished, I have some things I need to plug in, then I'll do an edit. After I think it's in pretty good shape, I'll have someone else take a look at it.

In the meantime, I'm thinking about ideas for my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery. And again, not the one that will come out in September, that one is being edited by the publisher right now, but the one that I will ultimately begin once I'm through with the Rocky Bluff novel. (Haven't got a title for that one yet, so something else I have to do.)

Oh, and I do have another Tempe ready to send to the publisher. I'll take one final look at it and get it off.

While all that's going on, I need to plan my book launch and promo activities for Dispel the Mist.

And as anyone who has been following my activities knows, I'm still in full promotion mode for my last two books. I try to blog nearly every day, I'm active on Facebook and Twitter, I blog on two other blogs regularly, and physically, this month, I'll have a booth on the Fourth in the Exeter Park, I'm going to be speaking at the Bakersfield Beale Memorial Library on July 11th at 2 p.m., and I'm spending three days in Santa Maria at the county fair, July 15, 16, 17 from 11 to 4. I'll be in the Fine Arts Building.

Whew! Makes me tired just writing it all.

Now you see what I mean about juggling.

Time I got moving on some of my other jobs.
