Looooong Week...

And this next one is going to be longer.

Hello, holidays! Good-bye, word count!

I saw him in the mall parking lot. He took my spot. 
It looks like, barring a turkey induced coma, I should have the rough draft of Mr. Red Riding Hoode done and to my betas by next Monday at the latest. And tomorrow I plan on sending Morgan's Fate to my editor.

Speaking of tomorrow, I have a follow-up with my rheumatologist where I find out if I get to go on Enbrel (or a similar drug like Humera) to slow my AS down.

I hate needles... but I hate pain more.
 So. Yeah. Busy week coming up, busier month in December as I do some re-writes on a story I wrote a long time ago that I decided would make the perfect second installment of The Nephilim. Right now it's called The Fire Within, but consider that the working title. It may change over time.

And for everyone who wants to know, I'll be starting the next Halle Shifters novel, Stripped Bear, probably mid-January.

P.S. It's looking like the Shifters will be making a holiday appearance, as that's the series you've voted the most for a free holiday read. You have a few more days if you want to add a vote for a different series or if you want to shout out, HAYL YES HALLE! I'll have whichever story you choose up by mid-December.

I hope you feel better soon, I hate pain too.
I loved your Christmas stories last year my favorite was Rick and Belles. The coyote was great. I laugh so hard it was great.

I already know what shifter story I'm doing. I've been DYING to write the story of Bunny's parents, and I'm going to take this opportunity to do it. >:D
