Sneak peek: Vanished

Sneak peek: Vanished

Since I am editing Vanished right now, I thought I would offer you an tiny excerpt of how the book begins. While there will be some changes, they will probably be minor. And yes, the book has a 2020 release date, though I haven’t decided exactly when, or if I am doing a pre-order or not.. A knock echoed in the small cottage. With a sigh, I stopped putting away the groceries, and took a step toward the door. “Finish…

A Belated Happy 2020

A Belated Happy 2020

So I had an wonderful christmas, that was mostly spent away from the internet. Which was glorious. I read lots of books, ate good food, played with my nephews (especially the oldest one, since we spent New Year and a whole weekend together, talked with my siblings, met family I don’t see ofte,, ate tasty food. Mmmm.. I hope you had a wonderful holiday too, with family, and friends, and tasty food and laughter and memories. And if you wasn’t……

That was an interesting November

That was an interesting November

So if you follow me on social media, you will have noticed that I have mentioned that my dayjob is laying off a lot of people.. and I am one of them, I found out a couple of weeks ago. I have no idea what will happen, to be honest. A lot of the discussion is happening without me, which why I am so glad I am member of the union. Otherwise… no one would fight for me. And people…

After 10 years, it reached the top of my TBR pile.

After 10 years, it reached the top of my TBR pile.

So years ago, I bought a book on a whim. I bought it, since it seemed interesting. The years passed, and I kept the book, but I didn’t read it. Too busy with life, with other books. But when I sat down to work on the notes for the next portal justicar book, I knew it was time to read it, and some other books in the TBR pile. And then, I couldn’t find it. I knew it was here,…

Mostly about life

Mostly about life

So I finished the rewrite, a couple of weeks ago I think. Then I firmly took a week off from writing, since I had earned it. (Also, because I managed to hurt my shoulder.) It was a good timing, though, since family from other parts of Sweden was coming to Stockholm. Which was fun. And then dad had some health issues, which scared everyone and was less fun (When my sister called, I thought she was calling to schedule the…

Soooonnnn.

Soooonnnn.

Soon… I will be finished with this book. Which I have been saying since July, but I mean it this time. Now, it depends on how you define soon. Will it be this weekend? Errm. Probably not. Will it be next weekend? Maybe. Will it be before October? Definitely.

Productive saturday

I am still not done with the second draft on The Shifter’s Justice, which is a bit frustrating. I am in the last chapter, though, so yay for that. My friend RJ has posted on a Facebook about her experiment with doing 15 minutes sprints, she has found that successful and effective. Not to mention it lowers her stress. So today I decided to try that as well, though I just worked on one book. And… it worked really well…

Doing all the things

Doing all the things

So last week was…. odd. I was tired and had a couple of odd episodes of parestesi. They weren’t like the symtoms that I normally have, but since taking a b vitamine pill made the symtoms go away, I decided I needed a B-12 shot. For the last 4-5 months or so, I have been taking b-vitamine pills, which has a *crazy* dose of b-vitamine in them, so I haven’t taken the shot. I thought they worked for me. Except…….

On revising and schedules

On revising and schedules

Ever since things have started to calm down a bit, I have been thinking about what is a sustainable release pace for me. I know that Amazon’s algorithms are pushing toward a rapid release schedule, but considering that my first two drafts takes 2-4 months each, with a good chunk of time in between the drafts… it simply isn’t feasible for me to push for a rapid release schedule. What is feasible for me is to release one book per…
