I am going to get to go to GRL this year. I managed to get the time off of work and to wiggle into one of the spots as a featured author. I'm excited, GRL is such a fun time. I've met so many wonderful people there and I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Atlanta baby, here I come. Another nice thing about it being there is that I can visit with some of my husband's family too.
I will be submitting Make Me Whole tomorrow. Tonight I'm working on finishing the synopsis and tweaking the blurb. I'm excited about getting Galen and Nick out the door and turning to new characters and new stories. Here is the rough blurb:
After a grueling battle in Ancient Greece, lovers Dexios and Lykon make a vow to commit to each other in the Goddess Cythera’s name. When the war is over, Lykon breaks the vow and returns home, because he fears the emotions Dexios raises in him. Heartbroken, Dexios calls to Cythera and she changes him into a series of unfinished statues to wait for his fickle lover to be reborn to break the curse.
Thousands of years later, Galen Kanellis finds the statues in his museum storeroom and is determined to have them as a part of his new exhibit. He turns to his ex-lover for information on the statues, despite the estrangement between them. Before he wasn’t ready for what Nick offered, but he wants another chance if Nick is willing to give him one. Nick Charisteas had dreamed of finding the Dexios Collection his entire life. The last thing he expected was for it to wind up in the hands of the man who had broken his heart. Nick wants to be with him, only he knows to break the statues’ curse, he’s going to have to have his heart broken again.
Both men are going to have to let go of the past and put their faith in each other and the future if their relationship is going to work. But as the statues start to change with Lykon joining Dexios, they find themselves tested. Galen and Nick are going to have to search deep to find the power to heal each other to make themselves and the statues whole once more.
I'm still working on the weight loss too and learning a lot about how much I think a portion is and how much it actually is. And I've managed to start moving around more. So it's coming off, slowly, but I'm okay with that as long as I keep seeing progress in my energy levels and elsewhere too. So far I've lost 3.2 and I've actually gotten used to taking the stairs at work instead of the elevator though my knees weren't too happy that first week!
