I'm used to having a lot to do, and usually I thrive with it. Accomplishing things--checking each item I've finished has always been a satisfaction for me. Lately though, obligations have piled up and it hasn't been fun.

I'm reading my latest Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery to my critique group and I need to finish and edit it and get it sent off to my publisher.

My next Rocky Bluff P.D. crime novel, Dangerous Impulses,  is with the publisher who sent off some ARCs for reviews. One of the people who received the ARC told me she'd found mistakes. So I'm going through it again. (Amazingly my friend found different mistakes than I did.)

I do a newsletter for a residential service provider group--something I get paid for--and this is the time when I need to get it together and out.

I learned that the one and only book I self-published for Kindle, The Devil's Foothold, has too many errors. Yes, I did go through it--but there were some important things I missed. I need to fix it, but not only do I not have time, I'm not sure I know how to put it up after it is fixed. (I didn't do it the first time, I paid someone to do it.)

Because Dangerous Impulses is due to come out soon, I've been doing lots of promotion and planning. Biggest and most time consuming was planning a blog tour. It took forever, but I think it will be fun. I hope you will join in. (Another reason to make sure the book is as error free as I can make it.)

I've also been working on the program for the Public Safety Writers Association's conference.

On top of all this, we had a family crisis which has taken up a lot of time and caused a lot of worry. Anyone who is my friend on Facebook has been following this along with me.

As it says in the Bible, "This too shall pass."
