I finished the rewrite of my short story fantasy, Balance of Love. Only three chapters from the previous draft were kept. Everything else went. The story ended up being around 10K words. Now, I'm letting it sit before diving into edits. My mermaid fantasy and zombie stories, Deep Curse and The Cure, also got a round of editing and I'm happy with the progress I've made.
I had an amazing time as an author vendor at MIParaCon. It was the 10th anniversary of the convention and my first time being a vendor. I was a little bummed not to get to see any of the talks about ghosts and aliens and Bigfoot, but I got to talk to a lot of people; I sold eleven books, some bookmarks, and a lot of magnets; I had thirteen people sign up for my newsletter; and I made some connections. I'll be posting a video on my channel tomorrow. A big thanks to my bestie for coming with me and providing more support and hyping up my book to people.
My August was amazing and there's still a few days left. I may be taking it easy though to recover from MIParaCon. I'm an introvert, so while it was fun, it was very draining.
