Betas and Back To School

Some quicky notes, because I'm off to blow up.... I mean, save the universe, but I wanted to make sure that before I get sucked into video games I give you all an update.

First, Throne of Oak is off to the beta readers! I plan on having it to my editor by the 31st, so Mallory, if you're reading this, keep an eye on your inbox!

Second, and most important: MY KIDS GO BACK TO SCHOOL ON MONDAY!!!

Oh, yeah. Mama's gonna blow shi.... save the universe all day Monday. Just me, my coffee maker, and pixelated men.

I could get used to this...

When I'm done saving the universe (wink wink) I'll be starting Morgan's Fate, True Destiny Book 4. All I can say about that one is... someone's gonna get it!

Sadly, I've got to go back to school myself on Monday. Training, not teaching, at least for the first two days, but still...

Have fun storming the Reapers!

Yay!! Monday is officially declared Dana Freedom Day! Or DFD for short. ;) I'm so envious of those beta readers right now. Enjoy! I'm sure it's amazing. In the meantime, have fun saving the universe. =D

My girls went back to school last Wednesday but all minimum days. Tomorrow starts full days. Oh yeah!

Enjoy your daytime freedom!
