Oh man, I saw the two covers for the German version of The Plus One Chronicles, and I’m dying to share them. I love them so much! But they’ve asked me to hold off for a couple weeks. Its killing me! It finally feels real though! The German version will be released in two books instead of three, and it will be in both print and electronic versions. When I first set out to write that story, and self publish it, I never imaged this would happen. Sometimes, writing the book of your heart really does work out in ways we can’t even fathom.
Now I’m in a race against time to get Exposing The Heiress done. The story is emerging…just not fast enough. It takes time to get it right, but time is in short supply.
Okay moving on to Wednesday Worthy. This is a hunk who has visited us a few times, let’s see if he’s still worthy!
What do you think?

I still like him :). He’s deep in thought – about what – I don’t have a clue ;).
How exciting this must be! To have it expand like this has to be such a thrill. And the fact that you didn’t plan for it at all makes it even more beautiful. So two weeks or so, I can’t wait to see the covers.
We’re due for another pounding of snow today. I hope to get my errands run before it really comes down.
Have a great day!

Yay! I can’t wait to see your German covers. That’s just too cool.
I remember this guy, but I don’t remember how I felt about him then. :shrug: Today, he’s worthy.
Have an awesome day!

I read quite a number of blogs and meet as many authors as I can. I am always seeing how they have had success in the self publishing world with the stories that they have always wanted to write but just could not sell to the regular publishers. They are able to reach more markets (international and audio) then relying on the publishers. Many say they plan to do a blend and not really totally go one way or the other. It makes sense to me and as a reader I really enjoy being able to have the variety of stories. I am all for the more freedom and control the writers have in the self pub area.

Viki, I heard there’s a big storm headed your way. Stay warm and safe!
Thanks on the German deal. Working with this publisher has been a completely positive experience so far.

B.E., from Facebook–I’m dying to make those lemon brownies. I’m hoping the fact that I’m running at top speed and can’t keep up with my life at the moment will prevent me from doing it
It’s been really cool. I’d love to say I went after the deal, but they came to me. Life can take some amazing twists and turns!

Catharine, well said, LOL!

Kat, yes exactly! I’m doing the hybrid thing too. I do it for various reasons, including I have worked with talented, energetic and very smart people at publishers. I learned a lot from my editors and appreciate those experiences.
But I also love doing it myself
What’s really cool as how we authors have banded together and help each other. Seriously–authors out there truly rock with both their wisdom and generosity.

I love this guy. Always! Definitely worthy!
Can’t wait to see the covers and I’m so thrilled with your success, Jen. You’ll get HEIRESS done. I’m down to 11 pages on COWGIRLS. I’ll make my Friday deadline.
Now get to work!

Congrats on the German deal! I hope you sell LOTS of those books
This guy’s hot enough, nice pecs and abs. The pose bothers me though. It makes him look like he’s trying to look down his pants to see if everything is still there. And that’s just WRONG!
Well the snow came early this morning. On top of the freezing rain overnight. What fun. Luckily I don’t have to be out in it, as the county sherriff closed the roads for our county. Only emergency personnel allowed out on the roads. The bad part (other than MORE snow!) I was already up and half ready for work when I found out. Then I couldn’t get back to sleep I think it might be time for a nap.
