July 2012

July Goals:  This month will see the release of Astro.  Badger will finally go to my Critique Partner.  My second co-writer and I have already started a thriller/romance called The Care and Feeding of Dragon Children.  We should finish rough by the middle to end of July and start killing it with red pens shortly after.  Look for a new page here until Rachel can put up a blog of her own under her own URL:  R.T. McAuliffe.  And I should start the rough of Operation: Charisma, the third book of the Maraude Series.

Also this month I will jump start my reformatting of Basement, Stage, and Back Burner.  Keep Back Burner in mind as it’s entire profit goes to the kid soldier advocacy group Project AK-47.com.

Heading into August saw the publish of Astro and the crit of Badger.  Badger is in for some reorganizing!  So the pub date will be closer to November.  Rachel and I have slowed some, due to life situations.  With my mother-in-law recovering from heart surgery and a major stroke along with my work schedule for the day job, my writing has slowed way down.  Rachel is in a similar situation with her brother having a broken leg from a motorcycle accident.  Dragon Children is also delayed a bit, but it is still in progress and we will actually be using critiquecircle.com for our editing process.  A bunch of helpful guys!  I try to pitch in as much as I can, but I have always thought that anything can be salvaged with enough care!

Now on to August!  (already?)
