Books, books, and more books

I sent the first ten pages of Dark Corners to my possible new editor for our trial run today. Eeeek! I am getting so close now I can smell it and it smells like fear. Ahaha no, that's just me. Next hurdle once the book is safely tucked into someone else's hands and the cover is complete is the book trailer.

I have a rather specific idea in mind for my book trailer and up until today I wasn't sure how feasible (with limited resources) my vision was. However, after speaking with my friend, fellow writer, and trailer guru MD Christie I have a renewed sense of excitement about the project. I can't wait until I have something to show you. Everyone should check out her blog or follow her on twitter @md_christie. Another daunting goal this week will be to work on my blurb (ugh) and book summary.

Top Five Book To Be Read Once I Find Time:
1. The new Dresden Files. I know it doesn't come out until April, but I like to plan ahead.
2. In Memory of Greed- Al Boudreau
3. The Vampire's Warden- S.J. Wright
4. This Side of the Grave- Jeaniene Frost (I will finish this book someday)
5. Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar- Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein.

What's on your reading list?

I read This side of the Grave...it was pretty good..not my favorite of the series, but I needed my Bones fix :) The new Mercy Thompson book, River Marked; And the new JR Ward book Lover Unleashed are my top books to read this month. Plus start Richelle Mead's Dark Swan series that has been on my TRB list forever. Great List!! And, I have complete faith in you...your book is going to be awesome!

So your list looks a little like mine, though I already read Vampire's Warden and have Khloe's book instead. And I don't have the Plato one which I'm SO looking into... ;)

Gratz on this step of your journey! *hugs* Thanks for letting me tag along for the ride and keep us up to date!
