The Splits and Other Feats Accomplished This Weekend

I did it! The splits! See, here I am:

Haha! Yeah, right. This is about as close as I get to the splits:

So, actually, I split the blog. You may not notice any difference here, although there are some past posts missing. But there’s a big change over here. While you’re checking out my new writer digs, learn about the seemingly never-ending road of revisions and how Purpose still looked like this last week:

And please don’t forget to follow that other blog, especially if you’re a writer. All my writing, publishing and industry related posts will be over there, leaving this one for my books, author news and other official author stuff. We’ll still have fun here, but more readerly fun than writerly fun.

Besides the split, which wasn’t as bad as I expected, I also accomplished this over the weekend. Plus the beginnings of a website for my publisher. And put together the first issue of my newsletter, which will be going out shortly.

But probably the greatest accomplishment of all? Four generations of a family dinner and NO FIGHTING. We even played a game. I have three teen boys, 16 and 18 months apart. They define “competitive.” So I cringe a little when a game is brought out for them. But we all played and had a great time and a fun dinner. Makes me look forward even more to Thanksgiving.

What did you get done this weekend? And did you have time to just hang out, too? Any good stories to share? Promise, I won’t tell. 🙂

    Congrats on the split! I’ve got to admit, the second split is about as close as I get too!

    Honestly I think the second split picture looks way better than the first picture, mmmm. The new websites look great. The publisher one is interesting.. do you think you’ll be taking submissions one day? *now I’m off to see if you’ve written about that somewhere..*

    Thanks, Heather! Except for the old posts on the new blog running through Networked Blogs again, it went a lot smoother than I expected. In fact, it was so easy, I kept thinking I did something wrong and waited with my breath held for one of the blogs to explode. So far, it’s all good, though.

    If Ang’dora can figure out how to succeed with my books, we’ll be taking submissions some day. But our goal isn’t really to “accept” or “reject” authors. I so don’t want to go there. Once we get this game figured out, our goal is to help other authors play it, too, and, hopefully, WIN!

  5. Wow, what a productive weekend it was for you! Kudos!

    And I’m really curious if you don’t mind sharing the big secret: what does the colour code in the revisions of Purpose mean?

    Just checked out all the sites, the new Soul Savers one looks great too! (and just saw that Promise can be ordered through the Book Depository, yay!! Congrats! So happy to see that! :-p)
