DIANE VALLERE It is hard to think that summer is technically over in a month! My August is going to be filled with things to promote my new book that comes out on August 4. Any spare time I have will be writing the book that’s due in December. Let the juggling begin!
MARY SUTTON I always think, “Oh, August will be time to relax.” Never true. Swimming is over, but the kids go back to school in three weeks. So there will be last minute vacation, school shopping (clothes and supplies), chivvying them to finish any summer homework, all that stuff. Plus I’ll hopefully get my query in shape and get that back on track. Plus I want to do Pitch Wars. Good luck with the book stuff, Diane!
PAMELA OBERG After recovering from the shock that we’re entering the last month of summer (I haven’t really started my summer activities yet!), we’re going to enjoy a week of vacation at a cottage on a lake (with no internet!), and then it will be crazy, crazy, crazy at the day job, back-to-school shopping and planning, and perhaps getting a few of those summer projects done. Oh, and attending Writer’s Police Academy! Very much looking forward to that, for sure. I’m hopeful to get some quality writing done while on vacation. Anxious to get back to the WIP. Diane, I can’t wait to read the new book! And Mary, good luck with the Pitch Wars. That sounds very cool!
CYNTHIA KUHN Funny: I always think of July as the last month of summer. 🙂 August is back to school for everyone (except me because I taught during the summer so never really left). It will be filled with new schedules and school supplies. I like the idea you all have about vacations, though. Have to figure out how to get one of those on the calendar!
SUE STAR August is looking packed full! I have a science fiction book coming out, and my edits on the third Nell Letterly mystery are due. I will be in Albuquerque for Croak and Dagger on the 22nd. 🙂
SARAH HENNING We’re headed to Colorado! I’ll be out there the first week in August and am hoping to get in some hiking, writing and reading, though with my two kids and my toddler niece sharing our cabin, I’m pretty sure my entire time there will be described in the end as “herding cats.”
