Hey y’all!

Well, it’s been busy, and that busy-ness has kept me from my normal blog schedule . . .

— Hell to Pay launch. India launch. HWG workshop. Wyoming Writers workshop. Finishing Fighting for Anna for developmental edit. Floods/tornadoes/hail. Vehicle problems. Manuscript critiques. Fences down. Livestock dead. Driving 60 hours in two weeks. Judging writing contests. House repaired. Setting up a Snowheresville household. Death in family. And life, in general. —

h2p fun in the sun

Despite all this, and mostly because of my great team, we released The Emily Box Set and were blessed to have a KICK AZZ Bookbub promotion. We’re launching a SkipJack Publishing online school (free webinar registration soon (How to Sell a Ton of Books, In Five Steps)! first classes not long after!). We’ve put together a series of cool Facebook ads. And our cover design for Fighting for Anna is tres magnifique.

View as I finished Fighting for Anna, the developmental edit version.

Meanwhile, I’ve made new writer friends all over Wyoming and even in my own neck of the woods. Isn’t finding your people the best? I walk our dogs daily in our area, and I’ve found it takes me two hours to go three miles because of all the people that come out and visit. We’ve traversed roads so far up in the mountains that our truck gave up (and my husband inadvertently posed for a book cover, LOL)—

We watch the antelope, deer, grouse, pheasant, and jackrabbits in our yard every day, and we’ve seen (not in our yard) mountain lion, musk ox, and MOOSE as well.

We’re gearing up for a 16-day Wyoming Wild RV trip (when the RV’s out of the shop–it’s always got something wrong with it: I blame it on the Saskatchewan-Alberta-Montana trip), which I know will only whet our appetite for more of this glorious state. Then we’ll be hosting family and friends for most of the rest of the summer, which we’ll cap with a trip to Denver to see the Dixie Chicks in September.

Is it no wonder I’m off my editorial schedule of character interviews on the blog? I mean, just look at these wildflowers!

Maybe they’re the reason I’m having an enormous amount of trouble focusing on outlining/recording Michele #3 and rewriting the WDKY prequel novella? I’d much rather be planning our Wyoming Wild trip or putting together the 3-ring binder I want to leave full of information for house guests (Did I mention that every time we leave town, friends or family show up to claim the house while we’re gone? We love it!).

But I buckled down for Michele #3 research and outlining today, thus I’m on track to start recording next week. So I guess I can get on track on the blog, too . . . next week. While you wait for me, enjoy a day with the skies of Wyoming from our place.

    I love all of your pictures Pamela! I am happy that both of you are having a relaxing time!

  2. Eric Hutchins says:

    THAT was a lot of fun just looking at those pictures. We have packed a lot in, and it has been awesome.

    • Pamela says:

      And I’ll be happy about it all as soon as I figure out how to do this stupid Teachable live streaming stuff (and how to record video for regular courses). You realize this means I have to do my hair, makeup and outfit at least once a week now? You’ll have to take me out to dinner on those days.

    Beautiful!

    Living the good life…. Potholes and all. You are inspiring!
