A Day In The Life Of An Author, COVID-style
By Christina Bauer
As part of the launch tour for my new book, BANDITS AND BALL GOWNS, the lovely folks at Damsel in the Bookland have asked me to share what my typical day is like. As of this moment, I’m still under lockdown here in the great state of Massachusetts. So this is my typical writing day, covid style!
Early Morning – Our family consists of me, my husband Matt and our son Max. At some wee hour, my son slams the door open and says “Uppie!” This is his way of saying “get up already!” From here, my husband and I switch off who watches our son and who does their respective jobs. My husband works from an office in the basement. I write in a pair of places: one, the orange couch downstairs; or two, in bed where I am surrounded by an obnoxious amount of pillows. Ah, pillows.
Morning-Morning – I make my son breakfast and check the basics of my writing business, such as my sales numbers and social media stuff. Mostly I field questions from my son about cookies, namely where are the cookies? When can I have some more cookies? Sometimes rice krispie bars are also mentioned.
Note: my son is fifteen and has a diagnosis on the autism spectrum. Although he isn’t super verbal, he has many ways of making his needs known. For instance, he can use sign language to ask for a cookie like a pro.
Late Morning – My husband and son go on a walk. Writing time!
Afternoon – Distance learning with my husband and son. This involves Zoom video calls and lots of cheering on.
Dinner – The fam goes on a car ride for take out.
Post Dinner – My husband and son go to the park. Writing time, part two! Sometimes I write all night, but I’ve been trying to avoid that lately. After all, a good night’s sleep is a great way to stay healthy.
So there you have it—my writing day during the era of covid. Huge thanks to the folks at Damsel in the Bookland for the invite and I hope to see you again on a future tour!
One Prince Finds True Love … And Risks It All
Elle Cynder has fallen hard for Alec, the ‘prince’ of Le Charme Jewelers. Time for some happily in their ever after, right?
Not so much.
While the new couple shares joyful moments–and sizzling kisses–serious trouble is brewing. Elle’s evil stepmother, Marchesa, schemes with none other than Alec’s twisted father, Legend. Their plan? Destroy Elle and Alec, along with everything the young lovers hold dear, including Bry, Knox, and Wilhelm.
Another Royal Freezes His Heart … But For How Long?
As a prince of the dark fae, Jacoby focuses on one goal: avoid assassination. Marrying Elle would certainly aid in that cause, considering how she’s both a Cinderella life template and a powerful fae warden. Even better, Jacoby doesn’t truly love Elle. In court life, deep romantic attachments only mean certain death.
Then Jacoby notices Elle’s youngest stepsister, Agatha.
For the first time in his life, Jacoby’s cold heart warms with true affection. The elven prince struggles to ignore his feelings, but it might be a losing battle. And what would the prince’s newfound emotions mean for Elle and Alec? Could Jacoby really stand by and watch another’s true love be destroyed?
Buckle up for a wild ride as Cinderella’s time-honored story gets some all-new twists.
