The August Realms of Fantasy is at the printer. We're busy working on August releases for Eternal Press and on a catalog of both EP and DB books. That's enough to keep this gal busy for a while. :)
We have gorgeous weather this week. It sure makes me want to be outside enjoying the sun; especially with the Jasmine in full bloom.
Thankfully this year we don't have many plums. A bad wind storm blew off most of the blossoms during pollination time. It's good though because I don't have time right now to cook them up in to jams and sauces like before. The poor apricot tree didn't bear any fruit because of the storm. I guess it deserves a break too.
What am I up to? Books and the August issue of Realms of Fantasy. Editing and a ton of boring office work. It's got to be done and I have a great staff. I certainly couldn't do this without them. Yep, I try to tell them often.
We took a little time off last evening to watch two more True Blood episodes on Netflix. I also discovered a romantic comedy in the queue and had to put it on just to see what made my fella decide to pick one of those. He's not exactly the romantic comedy type person. It's called Finding Bliss and is a very cute movie about a up-and-coming filmmaker who gets her start in the porn industry. Yes, that's right...a romantic comedy about adult films. LOL!
Man, I'm itching to start a sewing project.
I have to say that in the past three years, I've tripled my knowledge base. That feels pretty darned good.
At first I thought my husband was moving it to play with me. He says he hasn't moved it. Honestly, I think he believes I'm a little delusional about the pitcher. Okay, so if it's not him and it's certainly not me, could it be one of our cats? I know they sometimes bat at the silk flowers but to push the pitcher forward to the same spot always? I sure don't know.
Could it be some kind of spirit? If so, why now when there's been no signs of one before? Why isn't anything else in the house moved? It's definitely a mystery to me.
Next up we're expanding digital editions beyond just PDF.
Okay, so I'm proud of all this. Why not? We work hard on it, care deeply. I think that shows through.
Well, that's my five minutes of back patting. Now it's back to work.
I'm incredibly excited about this issue. It's the first from us at Damnation Books. I did the layout.

Well, it's past time for my other news so here you go:
My husband and I (as Damnation Books LLC) have bought Realms of Fantasy Magazine. Yep. You heard that correctly. Realms of Fantasy!
There's lots of updates on the Realms of Fantasy website too. The address there is http://www.rofmag.com
Now you know why I've been so quiet lately. Working. Working. Working and loving every second of it.
I've never regretted having kids, especially in the tough times. I'm very proud of my sons and the men they've become. I guess I'll suck up feeling old and keep being proud.
Come back tomorrow and I'll give you my other news.
