[Monday Blog] This Week for Author Carla Buchanan
Week of April 15, 2019
So Spring Break is over and my break from Spring Break is over as well. I’ve finally caught up on all of the things that went by the wayside while I spent time with my nine-year-old during her time off and I’m ready to get back to it.
What’s going on with me this week…
Well, work, work, and more work. I’m working to get MY PAST WITH YOU live by the last day of April. I’m also working to submit my first paranormal romance, a genre of romance I enjoy reading. It’s a tale of male witches cursed, so fingers crossed that an editor will show some interest.
I’m also working on the first draft to the next book in the Fostering Love Series, MY TIME WITH YOU. It’s the third installment to the series based on foster sister Sydney Howard and how her life as a foster child affected her marriage and the death of her first husband.
I was told it would be a good thing to let you know what’s going on for me personally. If that interests you, keep on reading, if not then check back tomorrow for Teaser Tuesday’s excerpt.
Health and wellness are my focus these days. I’ve never drank so much water or spent so many days in the gym in all my life. No, I haven’t dieted since I don’t believe in those, but I have made changes that have helped me. I think it’s been important for me to take my health as seriously as I’m taking my writing career. Plus, exercising helps me have more energy and focus for those nights where I’m writing until 2am.
Other than my journey to a healthier me, my family has a goal to travel more. We’ll be going on several trips this summer that may take me away for a week here and there. However, I think in order to keep my ideas fresh and my mind open I must relax and unwind and take a step away sometimes.
Plus, trips always give me great inspiration.
Don’t forget to stay tuned for Teaser Tuesday where you’ll get an excerpt from my latest book, and What’s Out there to read on Wednesday where I post what I’m reading or new releases. Wednesday you also get We Wear Pink Wednesdays where I show you some finds in one of my favorite colors.
