Subject A36 Sequel, Writer’s Retreat, and #BadMoonRising

Yesterday I sent the Subject A36 sequel to my publisher a full five days before the deadline! It’s been a long, bumpy road to the finish line. These characters and I had our disagreements – some didn’t want to talk, others demanded more page time. You writers know how they can be – but I’ll miss all of them. I mean, we went through a pandemic together. Anyhoo – I had myself a little celebration after clicking the send button. I’ll get the manuscript back for three more rounds of edits, and then it will be released into the world next May.

After being postponed twice due to COVID, I’m finally going to a writer’s retreat hosted by authors C.J. Redwine and Mary Weber this week! Even better – it’s at a beach – woohoo!!!! It’s limited to a small group, and everyone is required to do an at home COVID test before arriving. I’m not sure who will be attending, but I’m hoping some of my friends from previous retreats will be there. Since the attendees were required to rent their own condos, Hubby had planned to go with me – until several high school friends planned a get together that overlapped the dates. He hasn’t seen some of these guys for years, so I was fine with it. My friend is gladly taking his place (she threatened him about changing his mind), and she’ll be lying on the beach reading while I’m in workshops. I’ve been looking forward to this for months!

Bad Moon Rising starts this Friday! I’ll post a preview with the authors’ names on Wednesday, so make sure to stop by and check the roster. Several you’ll undoubtedly recognize, but there are also new ones to meet.

    1. I was determined to get it sent in before the retreat, Tessa. I didn’t want that weight on my shoulders. Now I can fully enjoy the retreat and start putting together the next project that’s been haunting my mind for the past couple years.

  1. First, congratulations on getting your book off to the publisher! Outstanding! And I can’t tell you how eager I am to get my hands on it. Gonna read Book 1 all over again when the time draws near, so I’ll be refreshed and ready for Book 2. (I really loved the first one!) 😃

    And second, I’m super excited about Bad Moon Rising. It’s been one of my favorite fall events for a couple of years now, and I’m very much looking forward to reading (and sharing) each day’s post. Such a fun event! 😁😁😁

    And last, have a wonderful time at your retreat! 🤗💖

  2. Congrats on finishing the sequal, Teri. I look forward to the release in May. And how wonderful to go to an in-person retreat. I’m glad they’re having everyone test; it will make for a more relaxed gathering. And going with a friend should be fun too. I’m looking forward to the Bad Moon series too. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Diana! I took the first part of the test yesterday – it was negative, which I’d expected. I take the second round tomorrow. Hard to believe it’s been two years since I’ve been to a retreat – so excited!
