Two years ago I attended a private Abingdon Press author retreat in PA. I was contracted for my debut novel, Highland Blessings, but not yet contracted for any other books. I was surrounded by first-time authors like myself and other experienced authors who were multi-published, meaning three or more published books. It was a weekend of spiritual awakening and lots of growth. I didn't know it then, but many things from that weekend would last with me until this day.
After I turned in my macro edits I went right back to finishing the novella. When I started working on the second novella, I received proof edits on the other one. These are due June 21st. I have one more chapter to write on this novella, then I'll set it to the side. Work on my proofs for the other novel and then go back to the novella and incorporate edits. See what I mean about flexibility? And yes, I still work a full-time job.
