It’s Monday morning and I definitely feel it. My weekend was a tiring adventure. We spent all day Saturday erecting the new play fort for the Children’s Ministry. Of course it was the hottest day in Georgia this summer. Let’s just say the water and gatorade was flowing. But after many hours of hot, sweaty, mind boggling instructions, we finished it. It looks great and the kids came in yesterday with huge smiles. That made it so worth it.
In my writing career I’ve been honored by a couple of magazines letting me write articles for them. I’ve been honored again by Southern Writer’s Magazine. I’m working on an article for their Nov/Dec issue and it’s going to be an instructional article. If you don’t subscribe to their magazine then you’re missing out. The magazine has some really good articles and their dedication to helping authors is amazing. They’ve been really supportive to this southern writer and I’m honored to help them with their magazine.
So as I sip my coffee adoringly this morning I’m thinking of the work at hand. Thursday I purchased the program Dragon Speak to help me with my rough drafts. If any of you have used this program then you know the frustration I had at first, but as I sat down last night determined to make it work, it just did. I just have to get used to talking instead of typing. I’m hoping it will help with the sore shoulders and neck from many days typing. I’ll keep you updated on how that works.
As for deadlines and upcoming books, Emma Rose is coming along well. I’m working on setting a deadline for it. I spent most of last week with my wonderful editor/partner/cover designer creating back covers for some of the books that have been out in Ebook edition, but not in paperback. The covers came out really well and I’m excited about their release.
My new website is up and running at stephaniehurtauthor.com, so if you get a change click over and let me know what you think. The publishing company I own with my partner, Horseshoe Publishing, is now creating websites. The possibilities are endless so if you’re looking for a creative website to showcase your work, just give us a shout.
As you can tell, my life has been busy, busy, busy the last couple of weeks. That’s why I’ve been a little away from my posts. But starting September 1st you’ll hear from me everyday of September. It’s time for Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour with my friend Rosie Amber. We have a awesome list of authors this year and I can’t wait to get it started. We’ve been working hard for two months getting the info from the authors and getting the posts set up and ready to go. Keep a watch out and help us get the word out each day.
So, sitting here writing this is keeping me from the work at hand. I could talk with you guys all morning, but Emma Rose is crying out to have another chapter under her belt.
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
