MORE Big Doings!

I've been a busy boy lately!
Anyone who knows me is rolling their eyes and saying, "Yeah, so, what else is new?"
First, I'm going to take a moment and indulge in some unabashed bragging: My "first" story, "Angels Would Fall," received a 5-star review from Happily Ever After in June. To my surprise and shock, it also got a nod for "Best Book of June!" I hope "Angel Of The Morning" does half as well, but what a great set-up for Angels Cry! Which, by the way, is scheduled to release on August 29th. 
In addition to being here today, I'm also being featured in this month's G-Spot Newsletter. The interview scared me to death when I first saw it, because she asked A LOT of questions. And very insightful ones; this lady really did her homework, and didn't let me get away with simple answers. These were questions that really made me think. The interview took me an unheard-of three days to complete from download to upload. I hope y'all enjoy it!
Here's the link for that:

I've already got interviews and blog posts scheduled at EPIC, paranormalityuniverse.blogspot.com, and Bodacious Babes Book Buds scheduled from August through November! (Disclaimer: It's a cinch that I've omitted at least two important places I'm supposed to be. Apologies to anyone who got left out of that list.) Plus, I'll be attending the inaugural EAA Conference in Las Vegas in September. Oh, the blackmail photos that'll produce *cringes* I'll be the guy in the chef's hat!
In addition to all that, I'm making sacrifice to my fiendish plot bunnies, who have been multiplying faster than I can keep up. I've had to stop a couple of projects to jump on new ones, because I got sick of the bunnies turning over my truck every couple of days! I've got several works in progress that I expect to be putting through the submission grinder shortly, so keep your eyes open for those.
I'm also starting work on the November Noble Romance Blog Tour, and my novella for the companion anthology, "Timeless Desire." I've already got nearly two thousand words, and I think that vampire fans are going to enjoy this one. . .
Also, I've got a whole slew of guests coming up on my blog at www.jswayne.wordpress.com: H.C. Brown, Indigo Skye, and others will all be coming by!

And as if all that wasn't enough, a move to Las Vegas has just become imminent. Like, days away imminent. This is strangely fitting when one considers that one of the critical scenes in Angels Cry is set in none other than Sin City!
They say that you've gotta be a little crazy to want to be a writer. If that's true, bring on the straitjacket: My schedule and life are insane, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
But I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I'm lucky to have an understanding wife!

Until next time,

Best,

J.S. Wayne

Busy, busy boy! Congrats on everything including the imminent move. And good luck on those plot bunnies. Time for stew I think.

@ LJ: It's certainly been different! I never imagined when I got my first contract that I'd need clones, minions, and a personal assistant, but I wouldn't trade it! You gotta EARN your money in this business!

@Renee: The faster I cook the little bastards the faster they breed! *Glances out window* Shit. My truck is on its roof. Again. And they're LAUGHING at me! *Grabs shotgun*

A followup: I am DEFINITELY moving as of Friday, time TBD. There's a lot about Texas I'm going to miss, but there's just as much that I'm just as happy to have in the rearview.
