Cover Reveal

I’ve finished up the cover for my contemporary romance FREEFALL. Yes I know the book isn’t finished but the cover and the couple were calling me.

It’s April already!

I found myself sitting around today working on my story Freefall and started to wonder about my website and the Facebook page. The Facebook page hasn’t been published yet due to my not liking the website design and colors yet. I do believe I’ve found what I’m looking for (for the minute). The plan is to update the Facebook to match and get it published so I can start posting on it.

I want to keep personal Brandy away from author Brandy. It is something I’ve noticed with the authors I work with and others that I follow madly. It is best to start off on the right foot and not make people follow me around when I decide to change things up. Which I will admit will happen at some point.

I desperately want a WaxCreative website at some point in my life. I love their stuff and their staff is amazing.

Updates on the writing front. I have turned in Craving More, book 1 in the Tiger Nip series to my editor and she has already sent edits back. I will be working on those this week as well as getting the cover art done.

While Craving More was with the editor I decided to switch gears and work on a straight contemporary, Freefall. I’m about halfway through writing it now. I have a plot scratched out. No giant mystery or broken hearts. Just two people who went to high school together and meet up 10 years down the line.

That’s about it. I hope you’ll stay with me on this adventure.

Still working

I’m still figuring out what I want to do with everything. Lately I’ve been concentrating on graphic design. Creating covers for my clients that fall under Author Accomplice. Its an interesting balance between helping authors in my role as assistant and becoming an author myself. There is a big part of me that doesn’t want to let them down and still be that person that helps them free up their time for writing and publishing. The other part of me knows that it will have to end at some point if I ever want to have a writing career myself.

I’m also realistic and know that the two will very likely overlap as I make my way to actually be able to earn a living as a writer. Its a very tough arena to work in especially with self-publishing on the rise.

That’s about where I am at the moment. Full of indecision as usual.

 

New Year, New Goals

Yes, I really should makes some goals.

But Brandy don’t you mean Resolutions?

Nope. I don’t do resolutions. I know I won’t fulfill them so I won’t set myself up for that failure.

Goals, however, are a different beast. They are things to aspire to get done. Something that I can check mark off at some point and I don’t have to wait an entire year to fulfill. I’m a little crazy like that. I like to see results and progress toward something.

With that in mind my goals for this year will revolve around self-publishing my first book. Now I just need to figure out a timeline which I was save for a later post.

Have a great one….B
