One down... (Yet another word count)

Okay, so sorry I missed Wed. check in.  I was traveling Wed. and Thurs. so those days were a major setback.  Then my husband got home from a week long trip yesterday morning, and we did a bunch of much needed yard work.  To top it all off, kidlet is much miserable with allergies and didn't sleep most of the night.  I ended up putting up our aerobed and taking him with me.  My poor husband was sleep deprived from waiting up all night for a late flight, so I shut the door and spent most of the night keeping my kid's foot from connecting with my face.

This is all to the say, that I didn't get as much writing as I wanted done this week.  That is the bad news.  The good news is, I finished The Demon & His Lover, though I'm still not super happy with the ending (I have a hard time with endings of short stories.  I tend to make them abrupt.) and I've started Aeris -this is the tentative title for the second book in the Five Tribes series.  I also did some chatting with my super talented sister and I now have a new look for my blog (goodreads readers will have to see the actual blog if they want to view it, since I usually post there by rss feed) and a new website (so pretty!).

I want to take a rabbit trail here to talk about my sister.  She is amazing!  She really is.  She has designed all of my covers (you can see the cool cover for Compis on my website): Six Keys, The Angel & Her Gun, The Demon & His Lover, Compis. She designed my website as a school project.  Oh yeah, did I mention, she's still in school???  She's got an amazing amount of talent as a graphic designer and I am very very lucky that she does stuff for me for free because she likes me. :)

That's all for now.  Hope to have better news on Wed.
