Dearest Friends and Readers,

Normally on a Monday, I would tell a tale of the harrowing or hysterical to try and relieve some of the doldrums that seem to so nastily coincide with monotonous work and lack of coffee. However, on this bright and lovely day as I sit on the lanai, watching the golf carts go by, I find it an insurmountable task to think of anything that would amuse you.

My current position as dog wrangler and house sitter has left me in a lovely environment. Aside from the daily adventures of playing B-A-L-L and trying to figure out why the dog is barking at the wall, this has been a tranquil time. Even the lions are resigned to their positions as water filters.

Excitement may ensue this evening when we conquer the great challenge of the heartworm medicine.

In the meantime, I will work on my new literary pursuit. A most secret new novel that I’m sure will provide trials and tribulations to delight all those who enjoy schädenfreude.

I would also like you all to meet my new editor. He is strongly opposed to head hopping but does enjoy a good run on sentence.

And this is my literary agent. He is encouraging me to develop a new series.

Wishing you all the best in your writing pursuits,

Yours Sincerely,

Megan O’Russell

Not to mention the fact that Megan has final say of what I get to put on the blog. So, today I shall share with you what the past couple of months have been like managing Megan’s multiple near-meltdowns during the editing process for The Tethering. (more…)
