In most blog tours, a single author appears on a variety of blogs, moving around the Internet and allowing the readers of those blogs get to know the author.

In the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, the authors stay on their blogs and it's you, the reader, who takes the tour.

Each month, our participating authors from around the world agree to blog on a single topic throughout the month. By following the links in each month's post, you'll discover a whole bunch of new authors in a variety of genres, levels of experience, and styles of writing.

We hope you enjoy the trip and come back each month for a new spin around the globe.

Current Projects Going Into Summer

Life doesn't always go the way you plan and for me no where is that more true than in my writing. I had planed to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo but that did not happen in either of the available months. Sudden family parties for important birthdays began to litter my calendar as did many unexpected hours for my day job. My whole writing schedule for my projects has been thrown a serious loop.

Progress it is. This month is sentimental for me – it's Cystic Fibrosis month, and my focus has been on supporting my fellow CF carriers. For those of you who didn't know, I was born with CF and have struggled with it since.

Not working on anything new at the moment since the release of my new YA novel, Night of Shadows earlier this month. Read a snip here

We had two choices for this month’s Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour topic. We could discuss current projects or progress. Since I already posted a current projects post just a week or so ago, progress it is!  READ MORE

Current Projects 2013

I feel a little like anyone who lists out their current work(s) in progress should be given a medal. Or maybe those crazy writers should get a superhero outfit, with tight 80's neon-yellow spandex, a long blue cape, and some badass leg warmers that spit out acid into the evildoer's face. Evil in this case being laziness. Or procrastination.

Project Progress

Time to show what I’ve got.

At this point I have three projects that take up my time in writing sense. I have plenty of other things as well, but when it comes to writing, I’m trying to focus. Can’t say it is actually working.

Merry Go Round Blog Tour: Current Projects or Progress

Current projects, hmmm. It’s spring so I have seedlings in a south facing window, growing and getting ready to be put out in the garden. I still have to rake up the fallen pine cones, not a chore I’m especially fond of so I keep putting it off.
Fitness is another thing. I’m trying to cut more carbs from our diet and exercise more. Sigh. Cutting the carbs isn’t too hard but the exercise thing, well, it’s not going as well as I would like.
Writing, that’s going great guns.

Zette's Current Projects

As many people know, I have strict rules when it comes to starting new projects. First, I make myself finish everything I start (and learn a lot from the stories that give me trouble) This makes me slow to start new things before I feel that they are solid stories.

General Project Update (or "What's Redhawk Up to Now?")

It’s that time of month again, my entry for the Forward Motion Merry-Go-Round blog tour. This month’s topic is current projects, and boy do I have a lot of them!

The Liz McMullen Show

Sanguire, D Jordan Redhawk, current project, The Liz McMullen Show, Bella Books

Top of the list is the podcast, The Liz McMullen Show. In fact, I’m recording with Liz today! As soon as I know when it come available, I’ll let you know.

Our primary focus will be on the Sanguire series. As far as Works in Progress go, I just finished writing the fourth in that series - Lady Dragon and sent it to Bella Books. I don’t know when it’ll be published, but be aware that the book is on its way and your questions will be answered!

What's the Happy Haps?

I don't know why, but I love the expression "happy haps". It's fun to say and it has a nice little rhythm to it. It's something I heard my teenagers say and have stolen, much to their chagrin. If Mom uses it, it can no longer be cool/hip/boss or whatever the current slang is for something interesting.

So what's going on in my writing life right now?

Actually, not a lot.

I finished the revision of DERELICT and sent it off to my agent 2 weeks ago. (Continue reading about the Happy Haps on my blog, Once in a Blue Muse.)

Dawn's Projects & Progress

Writing projects are like chocolate cookies fresh from the oven: you can't have just one, and you certainly don't just bake one.
