New Iron/Velvet chapters?!
UPDATE: Chapter 19 is posted as of 3:20 PM, July 3rd!
Those of you looking – in vain, so far – for Chapter 19 must be tapping your foot. Where is it; will it ever be posted?
I’ve been working on the edits, but lately only in my mind. Real-life the past few weeks has not allowed me to focus or to sit at the computer. Nothing is wrong; nothing bad has happened. Just A LOT is going on right now.
With any luck at all, come Wednesday morning, June 23rd, a major “thing” will be over and done with. (We’ve been remodeling a house we own and its sale should close this afternoon (Tuesday, June 22nd). It has proved very time-consuming heretofore and the sales process has been a little irritating. It will be a great weight lifted when it’s “done”. Please cross your fingers for us!
That, plus we’ve had a sudden issue (after all these years of predator-free chicken-keeping) with raccoons! Arthur not included, I’m over them! They’re shifty, scheming, too-smart little things. We’ve had to adjust to their nocturnal, ummm, activities, then adjust again. Hopefully, now, we’re ahead of them, but we’re down 4 chickens.
All that, plus … the garden has needed me all day, many days in a row. I’m a morning writer, but the southern summer heat and humidity make it necessary to be a morning gardener too. Those enjoyments have been warring with each other. I just can’t get going on a chapter if I try to start after noon. Argh. The good news is, though, I’m caught up with the planting and bed renewal now.
I promise to throw myself into Iron/Velvet with new energy asap. Until then, I apologize for the delay and really, really appreciate all the kind inquiries I’ve had for the next installments.
