Be Careful What You Wish For

On Tuesday, February 7th, I asked for good vibes, thoughts and prayers because I had a few irons in the fire. I quickly came back with 2 of them as a no. Since then, things have changed. The iron in the fire is in regular print. The update is underneath and in bold.

1. I interviewed for a long-term sub job that could turn permanent.
I got the job, but it's at a very challenging school. The kids have run off every other substitute. Yesterday, apparently a teacher got assaulted. I've been on campus for 3 days prepping. I start with the kids on Tuesday. My first class is the one that vowed to send me away crying on my 1st day.

2. I sent a pitch into an editor for a completely different project. I LOVE the story!
I got a request for a partial (3 chapters & synopsis). The book's written, but I'll still have to take some time to revise a bit before I send it.

3. I'm at 8 months waiting for a response on another book.
8 & a half months now and still waiting.

4. I had a person put an application in to rent my condo.
The person's background and credit check came back and my property manager couldn't approve. BUT the very next day she called me with another applicant who did get the "thumbs up" and he's moving in March 1st!

To be honest, I'm a bit overwhelmed because add to this I'm trying to prep for the release of Her Highland Champion next month too. Wonderful things are happening and I just have to learn to balance everything, but it will take me a while. Hope it doesn't make me crazy in the process!


  1. Yay!!!! So glad everything is coming together.

  2. Thanks, Shellee! Hopefully the kids won't completely ruin what's left of my sanity!
