It's bedtime on Saturday night - around 9:30pm, as a matter of fact - and I'm trying to get a jumpstart on the update for the week. Probably not the wisest of ideas, since I am totally brainfried, but tomorrow will probably be worse, so here goes...
I finished the proof-edit-thingies my readers sent me. So, my book is like 99% ready to be formatted. For the last 1%, I sent it to my Kindle and I printed off the first half for Hubs to read. (He'll get the other half when he gives me back the binder clips I used on that half.) I printed the half yesterday and handed it to him. And wouldn't you know, I already got ketchup on the title page. (I had hashbrowns for breakfast while I watched TV and I must've set the plate on the book at some point.) Looks like blood, though, so I'm not overly upset.
I haven't really done much else this week. Part of the reason was we got Hubs a boat this past week - because he's been such a good boy for the past ten years, he earned it - and I was wrapped up in that. While he was up looking at the boat, I did some major cleaning, so there's that, too. Other than that, though...
Well, I was playing around trying to format the manuscript myself. The test one I sent to my Kindle looks pretty snazzy and the test one I put together for the hardcopy looks good, too. Once the manuscript is as clean as I can make it, I'll format the real book and see how it goes.
My cover is also complete for the ebook. The cover artist added in my shiny, new tagline and it looks like a book you'd find on the shelves at a bookstore. I'm pretty pleased. The poor guy is now waiting for me to give him a final pagecount so he can make my print cover. And he's working on my marketing materials. I can't wait.
Once I get those, I'll be making a FB page and will adjust my Twitter background to fit. It'll be awesome.
What's going on in your world?
