I can't believe it's already January 18th. The days are all WHOOSH lately. Then again, I can't believe it's Sunday. (But we've already established I have trouble figuring out what day of the week it is.)
Anyway, here's the lowdown on last week:
I finished the second round of edits on Dying Embers and then sent that sucker off to a couple people for proofreading.
After some back and forth with the cover artist, we have the final decision.
Now he's waiting on me to come back with a tagline and a blurb. (I assume for the print version of the cover.) I told him I'd have those to him by Monday, so I have today to complete them. (I thrive under pressure.) In all reality, I should've already had these things done, but I brainfarted out, so now I'm scrambling to get those into tip-top shape. Lucky for me, I already had a rough blurb from all that querying I did. Unfortunately, I totally didn't use it for more than a jumping off point. I'll post more about taglines and blurbs over at B.E.'s Writerly Space, and maybe do something fun with it tomorrow.
Now I really have to get with a formatter because I am profoundly lazy and I hate writing HTML. I have a line on one that a BFF uses, so that shouldn't be too hard. I just have to hope they have time in their schedule for me.
Since I got the edits back and shot the book off for final proofing, and I hadn't gotten the cover back or been asked for a blurb, I spent the majority of mid-week slacking off from writing. I did some major discovery shit in the family tree (which you can read about here) and I read a bunch. One of the things I read was Cowgirls Don't Cry by my very good friend, Silver James. Actually, I inhaled it yesterday evening. It was awesome.
That's my week in a nutshell. What's it like in your nutshell?
