The biggest news of my month: I bought a house!
Well, more accurately, I’m buying a house. The offer has been accepted, and I close at the end of April! It’s a 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom townhome with a basement that I’m going to turn into an office/library. I’m so excited– nervous too! I’m a first-time homebuyer, and I know I have a lot to learn.
On the Truest front, I finished my final(ish) edits to the manuscript with minimal panic and got my ARC (advance review copy) in the mail!
In Mill City Heroes news, I kicked butt and took names this month. I put in countless hours of work on my next manuscript as I work toward my first-draft deadline at the end of April. Eir and I went on an adventure day in Minneapolis (i.e. Mill City) as part of my “research.” It was delightful!
This might seem silly to you all, but I feel really proud that I’m reading a lot so far in 2015. As you know, I love to read– but this year, I’m making it even more of a priority, looking on reading as part of my job as an author. I’ve been trying to set aside one night each week just for reading, in addition to spending about an hour reading each other night. It feels good. Really good.
How was your March? What are you looking forward to in April?
Not silly at all to make reading a priority and HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on buying the house! That is awesome!
Congratulations on buying your first house, that is amazing news and I’m so happy for you.
How exciting to get an ARC of Truest in the mail! It’s getting closer!
I’ve finally started querying my manuscript so I’m praying hard.
Good luck with the reading, it’s great you’re making it a priority this year.
A house!? Way to go, Jackie! Congratulations! And it’s so exciting to hear of things moving forward with both of your books. Can’t wait to read them!
Good on you! congrats!
