Getting back to work

I had hoped to keep blogging while working on the fifth book in the Adventures of Ordinary Sam series, but it was a little too optimistic of me to think I could keep up an average daily pace of 3000 words and still find time for a blog post. I'm glad to be able to say that the book's first draft is now complete! When I publish this one it will be the end of a series I've really loved writing.

I'm having a bit of trouble getting back into the writing game, though. Right now I should be working on the first book in my new series, Wizard's Mischief. It's a series I really want to work on, but I haven't asked my advance readers for their input yet, or done any of the other things I need to do to make the next editing pass happen.

But I need to get started soon, because in July I'll be writing the second book in the Wizard's Mischief series. Sometimes, especially at this time of the year, I'd just like life to slow down for a little while so I can catch up!
