2nd Rounds are Done!
I just sent back my 2nd round of edits. Whew! I've been working on them all day, and I'm relieved to have them out of the way. I have a little time between now and the next round to start working on the Rune story I owe Cobblestone Press. That has to be finished and turned in by the end of August. Gotta get jumping on that, or I'll be in another last minute crunch.
Hubby and I got word over the holidays that the people selling the four acres are wanting more money than what we were prepared to offer, so we turned down the property.
As of today, once again we are on the hunt. As soon as hubby gets home in a few minutes, we are taking a ride to go look at a house on 5 acres. We were told the "house needs some work", and depending on what that means will greatly affect our decision. For the price on the place, if we have to do new plumbing or a arrange for a new roof we're gonna pass. The things people are trying to pass off for the price these days will suprise you. For example, there's a termite infested shack down the road from here for $65,000. *shakes head* To tell the truth, I can't imagine a bank that would even finance a place like that...
Today my good writing buddy Tempest Knight, author of Enduring Promise, is blogging about her book over at Dark Ice Goddess blog. Be sure to drop by and check that out!
That's it for me. I need to find where the gnomes hid my shoes (AGAIN!) before hubby gets here.
Happy Tuesday, folks!
