Gah. It's Sunday again. And the freakin' time change again. Let's all spring forward for no rational, objective reason. K?
Last week was an interesting week and once again, a blur - which means I'm sitting here this morning trying to rebuild it in my head. Here are the highlights:
I slipped and fell on my ass. Nothing was bruised but my pride.
Max at a big breakfast and then proceeded to throw it all up on the office carpet.
I had some shithead try to steal several hundred dollars from me through Paypal. The joke's on him - I don't have several hundred dollars, so even if Paypal had let that go through, it would've bounced like a Super-Ball. I'm a debut, self-published writer here. There are no funds in my account. I won't even see a disbursement for the books I've sold until sometime in April, and as it stands, that won't even cover a week's grocery bill.
And that ^ was just Friday.
I spent yesterday cleaning and then reading.
In other news, last Monday was my first day of my allotted 5 free ebook days. It went well, and netted me two new reviews, but not an upsurge in sales yet. Monday I also guest blogged at my friend, Laura Bickle's place. Tuesday I did a paid promo with Kboards. Didn't see any sales from that either.
I got all the books I needed to mail mailed on Monday, so if you were expecting one, it's on its way. And my local postal gal said the next time I stop in, bring a paperback with me and she'll buy it.
In writerly news, I'm working on cleaning up Wrongful Termination because my editor said she has a spot open after the 13th of this month. I have until Friday to make this as non-nauseating as possible. I fixed the ellipses addiction I have yesterday. Now I need to read-through again to make sure I don't have any glaring errors. She'll find tons anyway, I'm sure, but I want to do what I can before I send it.
I'm also working on the rewrite of Fertile Ground (SCIU #2) and I think I have the path so that Frank slides in seamlessly. Of course, I have to trash quite a bit of what I've already written, but them's the breaks.
I was working on the edit notes for Bloodflow - and I still am, kinda - but the plot holes are deep with this one. I knew that. This book has been like walking through a field of jacks barefoot.
In house news, Hubs only has two walls left to sand. I've been remiss and haven't taken progress pics, though. The last two walls are the hardest and the highest, but he's way ahead of his self-imposed schedule, so it's all good. LOL, you should've seen him out there in 20 degree weather sanding away. Or the day he set the ladder in the snow and worked. The man's committed.
Anyway, that's about it for me. What's new in your world?
