So yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. Quite honestly, I don’t feel like my life or my thoughts are interesting enough to share. But for the one or two of you that may have the slightest interest, I suppose I can come up with a few things.
As some of you may know, I’m a crazy cat lady. My debut, Successor, is dedicated to my three furry beasts. Anyone who knows me personally wasn’t surprised by the dedication. They just shook their heads and laughed. Well within the last several months, tensions between my oldest (Isabeau, a.k.a. Bobo) and my youngest (Achilles) have rocketed. As anyone with male cats probably knows, boys tend to be rougher players than girls. Bobo has never been fond of Achilles and tends to growl and hiss at him most of the time. They’ve been together for about five years, and you would think she’d get over his presence by now. Nope! And it doesn’t help that he’s turned into a bit of a bully when it comes to her. He knows he can easily get a rise out of her and takes full advantage of chasing her when she runs from him. Then comes the growling, the hissing, the screaming. It hasn’t been a good situation, to say the least. A large part of it was due to the fact that I lived in an apartment the size of a closet.
Tight quarters + agitated cats = STRESS!
The remedy? I moved!
Literally across the hall, no more than eight feet door-to-door. Easiest move in history! While my new apartment isn’t huge, it’s definitely more space than what I had before.
The cats still annoy each other, but at least here Achilles has a little more space to run and burn some energy. And some days, Bobo doesn’t totally despise his presence. I give you Exhibit A:
Before I forget…
I’m going to be narrating audiobooks! I’ve been in talks with the head of the audiobook department at my publisher, The Wild Rose Press. If you’re not familiar with them, they publish primarily romance novels and novels with strong romantic elements in them. I’ve recently started dabbling in voice-over work, and I’m still getting the hang of the equipment and software. But if all goes well, I’ll be getting added to their list of narrators for their audiobook line. It’s an exciting new venture, and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
So that’s pretty much everything that’s been going on with me since my last update. On the writing front, things are slow going with Successor’s sequel and the other project I’m working on. But I’m making progress little by little. I’m definitely not one of those writers who can put out multiple books in a year! Just the thought is exhausting.
Speaking of writing, I should get back to it. Thanks for reading, if you made it this far.
Until next time!
