Happy May – Time Flies

Jillian here. Happy May. I hope everyone is healthy and happy in this (already!) fifth month of the year. Can you believe how fast the year is going? Sure, some days are super long, but looking back, the weeks have fairly flown by. It seems like one minute it’s Sunday night and before I turn around, it’s Thursday again.

I know I’m blessed to have my work, but as I read about people being bored in lockdown, I sometimes wistfully wish I had a day or two to be bored. We haven’t slowed at all, and, if anything, the pace has picked up. It will continue to do so as the economic situation worsens. I sincerely hope people can safely return to jobs soon. How hard it is for some to survive right now.

In better news, I have a new book coming out this month. It’s called Lord of Misrule. I’m excited to have it out as it’s got a bit of a unique spin to it. Or at least I think so. Lol. I’m still trying to get the blurb like I want it. How can we write 70,000 words and then struggle with the 150-200 word blurb? 😁😬 I put the cover below. I love it.

Have a great May and see you in June. Stay healthy!

Here’s a pic of Hobbes- he wanted to say hi. Insisted on it, in fact. You know how he is. 😁

  1. I am glad you are managing to stay busy through all this, but I agree. You deserve some time off, too. Though I don’t want you (Or anyone you or I know) to get sick to do that!
    I LOVE the new cover. That dress is spectacular and congrats on the upcoming release.
    Hobbes, it’s good to see you! Thanks for taking such good care of your humans!

    • Amen to getting some time off, but not to getting sick to have it. 🙂 Hobbes said to tell you he has a tough job, but someone has to do it. I’m glad you love my cover as much as I do. Jillian

  2. Hobbes is cute. Authors inspire me.

  3. I so know how you feel about blurbs. Synopsis are another bump for me. Love the cover. I would have thought with things slowing court would too and give you a little time. But teacher are working harder than ever.

    Waving “Hi” to Hobbes. Always good to see him.

    • Blurbs and synopsis- bane of my existence. At least when you self-pub, you don’t have to do the synopsis. LOL and Nope, court has not shut down. Everything has been moved to telephone. The actual building is closed except to employees but hearings are ongoing. So crazy. Hobbes says hi!

  4. Hi Mr. Hobbes! How handsome you’re looking, and very chilled too 🙂
    Jillian, that’s a great cover! And I’m with you on the blurbs and synopsis. Hate them, and they take forever.
    Hope you can grab some well-deserved time off soon.

  5. Good that you are keeping busy and simply love the book cover. Synopsis and blurb – hate writing them. Doesn’t make sense that they should be harder to write than the actual book. And Mr Hobbes is looking totally chilled. Great stuff. Hope you manage some down time soon. You deserve some.
