Hello September! Please Be Better Than August…

Can you believe it is September? Where did summer go? This has been the worst year ever. I’m about to ask my Momma if that offer to slap me into next year is still on the table!

Everyone is adjusting to a new normal. Only normal is now a word I have forgotten the definition of. Oklahoma keeps plowing ahead with life as if nothing has happened. As if Rome wasn’t burning and the man playing the fiddle can’t even walk a straight line.

I find it easier to stay home. I get a lot of work done and there are no idiots here. Most days.

I am gradually phasing out of NetGalley. I only have 7 books left and they aren’t due until next April. I am still taking requests from publishers once a month, but I signed a contract with Amazon so that is what I have been doing.

The good news is I love technical writing. I can make your ugly sweater sound trendy and fresh. The not so good news is I’m receiving 6 to 12 packages a day. Oh it’s exciting at first, but then it’s just asking Where are we going to put all of this stuff? But they are great to work for and I still don’t have to leave the house. I do about 5 photo shoots a day and I try to finish up by 3 p.m.

We had 12 straight hours of heavy rain and lightening yesterday. Flooding streets and cars washed away. More expected today and the pool is already overflowing!

I hope everyone is well, healthy and getting the support they need.

  1. Boy you are keeping busy! Can you tell us about your Amazon contract..or perhaps not? Just wondering about that and Netgalley. I’ve been using Netgalley for a few years now.

    1. I love NetGalley but you can only review on Amazon the day of release. Now I can post on Amazon as soon as I finish a book. It wasn’t anything I applied for, they contacted me and offered. My neighbors are a bit suspicious however of all the packages arriving.

      1. Hahaha! Are they in plain brown wrappers! Yes, I’ve noticed that problem as well with Amazon, which is frustrating!

  2. Your tongue in cheek humor is so delightful! Most days there aren’t crazies at my house either! Likewise, I hope YOU are well, healthy and getting the support you need. Thanks, Patty, for bringing smiles to my day. Have a good one! ❤

    1. I have so much more time to read what catches my eye now. I was getting a bit burnt out.
