This week I'm celebrating:
1) Flailing wildly, but not going under!
2) I seem to have over-estimated what I could get done in a 2 week period. Promises to critique someone's novella, read & review 2 ARCs before the books are released (this weekend!), and keep up with crits for my CP group is taking longer than I thought. Plus I had to write a craft newsletter for a writing site ... but hmm ... isn't there something I'm forgetting?? Oh yeah -- revise my novel!! Well, that's not happening, but at least I'm managing to do everything I promised for everyone.
3) My hubby's coming home after a long trip. The house is a complete disaster, and ya know what? It's gonna stay that way for a while ... a long while.
Wish me luck as I flail my way through crits and reviews and maybe some revising. :)
Anyone else out there flailing? Or have you got it all under control?

SNOW ON CINDERS
How far would you go to protect your family?
A peculiar metamorphosis has taken shape since the final days. And the planet is in the throes of healing.
Fulvio McTullan leads his family and a band of misfits to form a new settlement, far from Tallas and it’s nefarious Elites. Their journey takes them into uncharted territories where strange creatures are lurking. It’s a battle of survival, not only from the creatures, but the mutated earth as well.
Meanwhile, Pomfrey Addler, an oppressive Elite squashes the insurrection in Tallas. Suddenly, citizens begin to vanish in the middle of the night and his daughter, Paniess is hell bent on revenge.
Fraught with mishaps, Fulvio finally locates the perfect place to settle. They begin to rebuild until they receive a call. A call which will lure them back into the clutches of Tallas.
