Queeromance Ink

I’ve listed Entertaining the Sombrevilles over at Queeromance Inktake a look if you’re interested! I love the fact that you can search using so many filters – being a very picky reader, it’s perfect for me. Hopefully someone will find their way to my book by using the site as well.

Today I’ve also sent my last edits to the publisher. Just a little more than a week left now! And today was also the day when my parents found out about the book – I haven’t mentioned it before because I felt awkward about the genre and the heat level and all, and I’m terrified of either of them reading it. But it feels good that they know now! My parents have always been very supportive of me and they know what a big deal it is for me to be published. So it’s nice to be able to share this with them, though I keep most of the details to myself.

On another note: NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow! I’ve no idea how I’m supposed to make it, but I’m looking forward to getting started. Just writing 25K would be amazing, so I have that as my inofficial goal to begin with.

If anyone else is going to participate: good luck to you! 🙂

Giveaway

There’s a Goodreads Giveaway up for Entertaining the Sombrevilles – go here for a chance to get a free copy of the book.

It’s less than two weeks now until the release date. I’m currently doing my last read-through, and I’m so happy with how the book has turned out. It’s still surreal to think about it actually being published, though. And a bit scary to think about people reading it.

Copy edits

I’ve just reviewed the copy edits for Entertaining the Sombrevilles. The book will be published in less than a month. It still feels surreal that it will be out there, for anyone to read. I don’t think I’ll fully understand that until it’s actually happening, to be honest. But for now I’m just happy that it’s so much cleaner and in every way better, now after the copy editing. Thank God that there are other people helping me out with the manuscript. I’m so grateful for that.

Soon

In less than a month November is here, and for me and many others that means NaNoWriMo is coming. I’m starting to get nervous – research is going slow, and I honestly don’t want to rush it or burden myself too much. I’m no Superwoman and I never will be – I need my sleep and I need to do other things apart from work every once in a while. I don’t want my writing to feel like a chore, but some parts of writing are more difficult to get through. I feel like I’ve bought too many research books at once, so just looking at the research shelf stresses me out…

But I’ve read about half of the first book now and I’ve learned so many things. Some parts of 18th century life are very hard to understand (like giving babies physical punishment ><) but there are so many things that are similar. I love imagining what people’s lives were really like back then. History is so fascinating!
