At the end of this week I’m going to have quite a lot of work to do, because I’ve got publisher edits on a novella due and I’m also trying to write something new in time for a deadline of September 1st. So of course I’m procrastinating like my life depends on it. I do have a cover art questionnaire open even as I speak, but I keep getting distracted by pictures of the West Australian outback and lovely panoramic photos of Perth. But if I don’t write down anything about these photos I’m looking at on the questionnaire, then I won’t get them on my cover, will I? No. No, I will not.
But mostly I’m thinking about getting a puppy. An opportunity has presented itself, and while it’s the absolute worst time for me to be getting a pet I am seriously considering it. Because I am the least practical person in the world when it comes to tiny, supercute little puppies. And I haven’t had a dog in a long time and I’m finally starting to miss it.
Anyway. I’ll make that tomorrow’s problem.
Today’s problem, which is not a problem at all, is that Equilibrium has gotten a lovely review on Amazon. Greek Reader gave it 5 stars and said:
I liked this one a lot. Both main characters and those surrounding them are described in well-rounded and lively detail. Michael has flaws and issues, some of which he’ll always struggle against, but he tries not to wallow and ultimately won’t be defined by them. Ryan has led an easier and more charmed life, but he has a streak of realism that allows him to understand Michael and to stand by him.
It’s a rather quiet and tender love affair, as they often are in real life, but never boring. Highly recommended.
So that’s got me all warm and fuzzy today! Puppies and a good review = a pretty good day, really.
