Sorry for no post last week. As my Twitter followers know, I was on the extended-family summer-trip-thing (aka visiting the Carolinas). It is now July 31, and I am happy to report that I made the submission deadline... with a couple hours to spare. *dies* I really need a more sanity-inducing summer schedule one of these years.

In forty-five minutes (from the point of me writing this), it will be August, which means it is the month of editing madness. Multiple projects need to be edited, which is awesome in that it means I have multiple projects going but bad in that it means I am not writing... sort of.

You see, I can't do another adult story right now because too many "similar" characters will cause my brain to implode, setting off a chain reaction that will result in a giant black hole taking the place of earth (and by default killing everyone).

I can, however, do something totally different. That means the wacky middle grade idea The Boy and I have been toying with is started. It's slow-going since he wants to take part in every stage of the writing, but it is being written. For those of you who don't know, I've written YA and really enjoy it. Middle Grade... is a foreign thing for me. It's a voice I'm not really confident with, but thankfully I have a middle-grader to help me on my way. It may never get finished. It may never be sent anywhere, but Operation: Wishes is the only thing I plan on writing in August. Just for giggles, I may keep you posted on how it's going.

Coming August 28!!!
In addition to editing-madness and Middle-Grade-madness, I also have OMG-NEW-RELEASE-(Kiss of Death, in case you didn't know)-madness this month. ("We're all a little mad around here.") I'm in the process of firming up dates for a blog tour--my first--and hopefully will have a calendar up next week. If you're a book blogger and you want to be included, let me know (selestedelaney[at]gmail[dot]com)!

For now though, I'm still just trying to keep my head above water. The kids have camp next week (YAY!) so hopefully that means copious amounts of work-time for me.
