February is the shortest month of the year, right? Well, this one felt very looooonnng and jam-packed! 😉
Here’s a quick update on what I did last month. This full plate was a pretty balanced diet. Not to mention that huge dish of dessert…
Beta-read and read for review:
Emmeline (five stars!)
Beyond the Horizon (four stars)
Fate of Mercy (This is a bonus to something else I beta-read)
London in the Dark (four stars)
It Happened on a Train (three stars)
Some Writer! The Story of E.B. White (five stars and a heart)
Kingdom Come (four stars)
I’ve also spent a good deal of time on Sherlock Holmes short stories and now The Hound of the Baskervilles. It’s so brilliant I’m not sure what is going on. 😉

Description for “Kiera” so I at least know how to tell my friends what I’m working on. It’s still pretty rough draft-like though…
Blog posts (the top five being Randomly Interviewing My Brother, Allison Tebo Interview, (Slightly) Romantic Books Part 1, (Slightly) Romantic Books Part 2, and Book Review: Emmeline) I also hosted a guest post by Ivy Rose on Writing Romance.

We got to celebrate two family birthdays and two church family birthdays last month! (Where I did have some literal dessert, in case you were wondering.) Talk about a party! 🙂 There was also tons of babysitting adorable minions. This month I’m looking forward to helping with two book releases, knocking out those last three library books I’ve had for months (and getting more, of course), and maybe some editing! My big project for the next month (or few) is rewriting “The Twin Arrows”, which I can’t wait to get all shined up for you to read. 😉 I’m also excited to see what surprises are in store!
How was your February? What are you looking forward to in the springtime, lovely, lovely springtime?
