Friday Five for July 10, 2015


1. I'm back from my trip up north. We had a great time celebrating Canada Day with my family. I finally got to meet my adorable niece and equally as cute baby cousin. We were tremendously busy and totally exhausted. I still haven't caught up on sleep or anything else. My brain is all foggy. I just need one night of really good sleep.

2. Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word of Masked Kiss' release. You guys are awesome! Though I wasn't around for the release, it was top rated at Ellora's Cave for two weeks. I need to regain my focus and start to plan a tour for the series.

3. I sent out seven short stories before I went away, and I've had three rejections. I submitted the stories elsewhere. It's difficult at times to keep pushing forward, but we must do so to achieve our dreams.

4. I haven't had a chance to write lately and I'm starting to get the writer shakes. The kind that make you want to start typing away at any keyboard you see! There's less than a month before my son starts school. (Yup, he starts on August 4th. Crazy!) So things on my blog will still be slow until then, but I'm eager to jump back into my writer's life come August.

5. It's finally Friday. Yay! It's been a long week. What's on your agenda for the weekend? Minions is out in theaters. It's at our local drive-in. I think it's time for our little guy's first drive-in movie experience!

  1. Glad Masked Kiss did so well for its release.
    Yes, we're seeing Minions. Saw RiffTrax last night, so I'll have two movie reviews for Monday.
    Enjoy the weekend and hope you get to write again soon.

  2. Ha! The writer shakes. I wish I had those. Then maybe I would actually get some writing done.
    Glad you had a nice trip. Hopefully you can get some sleep this weekend.

  3. Ah, yes. The writer shakes. I am familiar with those.

    And good for you for re-submitting those stories. You'll find a terrific home for them soon!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  4. I'm glad Masked Kiss is doing well! Wow! August 4 is early to go back to school, but I know you'll be glad to have more writing time. Minions looks like an adorable movie.

  5. I wish we had a drive-in! But I can't stand those Minions. I'm so tired of seeing them everywhere!

    Congrats on "Masked Kiss" doing so well!

  8. Way to get those stories back out there, Christine. I know what you mean by "writer shakes" -- it's like an addiction sometimes, isn't it?
