8/20/12 update

So, the kiddos have been back in school for a full week (plus) now. It is hard to believe that I now have a sixth grader (which is middle school here -- when I was in school, we had seventh and eighth as middle) and a sophomore in high school... the times, they do fly... So far, so good for the school year.. the only downside is that I have yet to get my schedule adjusted (hence posting at 4:50 a.m.) and my nephew will be starting his first week of college at Purdue University this week. I'm very, very happy that he'll be going to Purdue. such a great place and I hope that it is a wonderful experience for him.. (and that he does a better job of going to classes than I did during my time there, but that's a long, long story!)

In other news, I have now finished my second editing project for Nightscape Press . It is for a novella that will be coming out next month -- very excited!

Been in a bit of a lull, when it comes to transcription work. The next "quarter" has started for one of the companies that I work for and I had anticipated that it would keep me pretty busy (based on two factors: one being that last quarter was busier than I've experienced in the past for them and that I got what I consider a "promotion" in that I was asked to take on additional work, which is groovy)... but unfortunately, I haven't been as busy as I would expect... and my boss at my main transcription company has been sick since early July... so, that combined with the fact that summer is normally slower than the rest of the year, things have been pretty sparse... which leads to stress... but hoping things will all work out and pick back up soon!

KillerCon 4 is in exactly one month. CRAZINESS!! Myself and the other two members of Nightscape will be sharing a table with the amazing folks at Blood Bound Books. So much to say about KillerCon that I think I will try to make a separate post in the next couple days! But needless to say, I'm super excited and can't wait! Haven't been to Vegas since before I could legally gamble... LOL!

Hope all of you, dear, fine readers are well and I will attempt to blog again soon!! *hugs*
