During the last week and a half, I’ve crossed the finish line on several important milestones. A friend asked me yesterday if I’d celebrated yet. The answer, surprisingly, was no. I’ve been so far behind since I broke my collarbone that I’ve stumbled from one major project to the next, not looking behind me for fear I’d get run over by the next deadline. Today, please help me celebrate virtually!
Milestone 1: Completion of my sixth Downward Dog Mystery, MURDER LIKES IT HOT! Cover reveal and excerpts coming soon. The book was due April 1, and will be released on January 8, 2019!
Milestone 2: Completion of the proposal for book seven in the series, tentatively titled THE VINYASA VENDETTA. I will likely change that title, but for now it works. My publisher will have to read it, look at sales numbers for book five, Pre-Meditated Murder, and decide if they want to continue publishing the series. So if you haven’t purchased Pre-Meditated Murder yet, now’s the time! 😉 I likely won’t know whether or not the proposal is accepted for awhile, but keep your fingers crossed for me!
Milestone 3: I renamed my yoga business! It’s svAna Yoga, and you can learn more about why I chose that name at this blog article. This business will focus on yoga teacher training, yoga teacher training continuing education, private yoga therapy, and perhaps a retreat or two! Much more on this as the website is developed.
Milestone 4: I spent four days on the East Coast, hanging out with my writer tribe at Malice Domestic. It’s always wonderful to reconnect with my writer friends, and I’m glad I got to do so this year after having to miss it last year.
So what’s next? Lots of things, and honestly I’m still mega behind. I need to develop the content for my new yoga website, I have several yoga teacher training projects in the works, and I begin a six-month training on animal behavior this month. Depending on the results of Milestone 2 and how fast my yoga therapy practice grows, I may start a nine-month program in Applied Animal Behavior at the University of WA in September.
I told my husband the other night that if nothing takes off, I’ll be very bored. If the book series, yoga business and animal behavior training all thrive, I’ll be swamped. Wish me the latter. I always love life when I’m busy!
