But you know the work's not over! A writer's job never ends. And to help me stay organized, I'm sharing my next projects in a prioritized LIST.

It's the List Blog Hop. Bish Denham came up with this fun hop to celebrate eight years of blogging. I'm always making lists, so sharing one is easy!
  1. Submit and query CRADLE ROCK - it's out there!! Yippee!
  2. Finish rough draft of DISPOSAL, next Pop Travel novel - halfway there?
  3. Start typing DISPOSAL for NANO!! unofficially participating!
  4. Get moving on JOLISSA, chapter 2 (and tweak chapter 1)
  5. Outline WHEN THE WIND BLOWS - Broken Branch Falls book 3
  6. VISIT BLOG FRIENDS in between all the above!!
I'll start with my blog helpers and this blog hop!!

One more exciting shout out - check out this enchanting cover for Rena Rockford (aka, Dr Faerie Godmother) and her fantastical new YA urban fantasy!

Allyson fights acne, not trolls. As an inhaler-carrying member of the asthma society, she just wants to meet the father who turned her mother into a paranoid, move-across-the-nation freak. Now she’s trying to fit in at yet another school, but for the first time in her life, she has a best friend, Beth. When Allyson accidentally spits fire at kidnappers in the mall, she realizes why her father isn’t in the picture: she’s half dragon. Her acne? Emerging scales. Her asthma? The side effects of her dragon’s fire breath. Instead of freaking out, unflappable Beth reveals her own troll heritage and explains how things work with the supernatural creatures hiding within the modern world of smartphones and skyscrapers.

When trolls kidnap a unicorn, Beth gets blamed. Allyson is determined to prove Beth’s innocence and keep her friend off the unicorn chopping block. When they start looking for the kidnappers, they get a call from the last person they expect: Allyson’s father. He tries to warn them off, but he’s been put under a spell by the kidnappers to keep the victims from escaping. Nothing short of death can stop him. Now Allyson must choose between killing the father she’s always dreamed of, or letting her best friend die for a crime she didn’t commit. 

You can find Rena at her blog, follow her on Twitter, GoodReads, or find her on Facebook. Her debut novel, Acne, Asthma, and Other Signs You Might Be Half Dragon comes out November 23rd, 2015.

Have a great week everyone!

Wow! That is quite a list of things to work on. I wish I had the time to work on that much writing. I seriously would like to take a year off of work and just work on writing. Sigh - dreams.
I love the cover for that book and the plot. Sounds like a good story.
