Heads Up: I'm going on lock down.

As many of you already know, I'm in the finishing stages of the fifth Liz Baker book, Death Howls Twice. This book is scheduled for release on July 30th, so these next several weeks will require a lot of time, patience, and preparations to get everything in order for the big release.


I'm going on lock down.

Well, not 100% lock down. A girl needs her Facebook time, you know? I also have to deal with the numerous emails I get on a daily basis, or else I'm screwed. LOL.

My kids have been out of school for two weeks now (tomorrow starts week 3), and I gave them the first week of my undivided attention. Last week, I was pulled away from writing due to my landlord duties (Ugh!). That brings me down to three weeks left in June to get this book done.

The first of July will be dedicated to edits and rewrites, proofreaders, final cover updates/designs, getting all the edits from my editor put in, creating the different file types for all the e-book sites, and going over the paperback edition.  Oh, and I'll be putting the release day giveaway together during that time.

Lastly, the big day will be here on July 30th!  Woohoo! I'm excited and looking forward to it (like always), but I just gotta get to that point first.  LOL.

Anyway, I'll be around if anyone needs to contact me, but it might take me a few hours to get around to responding.  And don't you Page Peeps worry... Manly Monday will be posted right on schedule tomorrow morning, before I start my book work for the day.  ;)

Now I must go prepare the kids' weekly To-Do list to keep them busy while I'm locked away in my office/bedroom working. Thank goodness for earbuds, or else their arguing would be quite distracting.  *Sigh*
