April was a whirlwind! Is it really over already?
Beta-read and read for review:
Shadows of the Hersweald (five stars)
Martin Hospitality (five stars and one heart)
Left to Die (four stars)
The Forgotten Sisters (three stars)
The Mystery of the Mansion (four stars)
The Magnolia Story (three stars)
The 100-Year-Old Secret (three stars)
I am nearly finished reading my Sherlock Holmes collection, which is really exciting and kinda sad. I’m gonna have to find myself another big book to read next. 😉
Regular correspondence stuff
Best JJ Heller songs
Most popular hard candy (Jolly Ranchers!)
Flogging (story research, FYI)
Military care packages
How long it takes for a building to burn (story research!)
Steve Jobs’ adoption
And of course I always look up word definitions and actors if I have this niggling feeling I’ve seen them in something… 😉
Emessages (Sorry, I got bored of saying emails every time. 😛 )
My part of a collaborative story with Rebekah Morris
2,800 words on “One Last Fire”, my entry for the Stroke of the Pen writing contest

Committee stories with a friend and siblings 😀
Blog posts (the top five being Plate Update: Princess Lesson, the FBI, and Celebrations; three Camp NaNoWriMo updates; and The Beta-Reading Tips at the End of the Universe)
My short story “One Last Fire”
10k words of “The Twin Arrows” as my Camp NaNoWriMo goal!!!
We had a great Resurrection Day celebration and some times of fellowship with dear friends. I got to put in some volunteer hours at our local pro-life pregnancy resource center with my sister. I also finally splurged and spent some birthday money on sewing materials. It’s been so much fun to have a project to work on! 😀 This month I’m looking forward to trying some library books I picked up, helping with another book release, and beta-reading two exciting projects. “The Twin Arrows” is currently in the hands of beta-readers which is exciting and a big first for me. 😉 I’m also in contact with my cover designer over some early mock-ups. Eeek!
How was your April? What are you looking forward to this month?
