(As Silver pointed out, it is NOT in fact Sunday. Sorry about that, guys. Enjoy all of your weekend from here on out!)
Spring is in the air here in SW MO. Yay! I love Spring. It's my favorite season. The birds are singing their little brains out. The squirrels are chasing each other all over the place. The first batch of baby squirrels have been kicked out on their own, in fact. And the flowers are blooming everywhere. My yard is filled with wild violets, and tiny white flowers, and tiny blue flowers. You drive anywhere around here and the woods are shot with pink as the redbuds burst into bloom. And the hummingbirds are back! :happy sigh:
Of course, all this Spring is making it hard to concentrate on work. Still, I managed to put my head down and get some beaucoup editing down this week. Accidental Death is really shaping up. I don't have a firm launch date yet - still editing which means I still don't have the paper cover done because she can't do it without a page count which I can't have until I'm done editing. Those kinds of things. I'm still shooting for some time next month. And I will have a firm date to go in the newsletter. Haven't signed up for the newsletter yet? Go to my other blog and click the tab for Newsletter Sign Up Form. It'll take you right to it. Easy peasy.
In case you hadn't heard elsewhere, Baen sent me the most lovely rejection letter for Djinnocide which means that book is now unencumbered and will be taking its place in the publication schedule here.
Trying to generate some sales, I dropped the price of Dying Embers to $2.99 for a limited time. And nothing has happened so far. If nothing continues to happen, I'll put the price back to $3.99 and let it ride until Accidental Death launches. I'll make a price determination then.
I joined an Indie Authors Support Group over at Goodreads. I'm still new, and therefore fringe, but it seems like a good group of people who are supportive without being catty. Yay.
I spent some time watching the kerfluffle that is the Hugo Awards. It's really getting rancid over there - with venom and viciousness and libel and lies. But like a rubbernecker on the freeway, I couldn't seem to pull my eyes away. Still, I decided yesterday that I have better things to do than watch the car wreck. Have to keep my eyes on my own road and hope none of that crap slops over into my lane. And that's all I have to say about that.
Yesterday, Hubs and I took the first walk around the loop since Winter ended. It was gorgeous. But man, am I ever out of shape. Bleh. I need to start making that a daily venture.
How are things in your world?
