Beyond the Gate just received another great review, this time from Alise at Read My Mind. Stop by if you have a chance to her busy blog. Thanks, Alise.
Those good reviews always provide a little push for me and hopefully will motivate some readers to try my series, The Futhark Chronicles.
I need some motivation at this time of year. I noticed yesterday while walking( still limping) to the end of the driveway, the spring bulbs are pushing their way through the browned bodies of last year's greenery. Most of the snow is gone, exposing the multitude of branches the snow and wind have ripped from the trees in my back acre. The pool fence and deck need some work. Do you see where I'm going with this?
Spring means lots of outside chores to draw me away from my writing and promotional efforts. I'm already getting the urge to do some raking. But I'm a third of the way done with my current WIP and would like to finish it before the release of my next novel in May. I have two submissions to make of my next fantasy series to two publishers who are only open to new manuscripts during the month of March. Lots to do and the outside is calling me.
Does the spring weather distract you? Do reviews motivate you in your writing or your reading selections?
