The battle of the river dwellers - part two - kept me up again last night. Last weekend's explosions were pretty bad, but that was just a precursor to last night's festivities. Natch. I read until 10:30 when I couldn't keep my eyes open. Then I went to bed and laid there while the world exploded outside. Not sure when it finally stopped or I finally fell asleep. All I know is I am dragging butt today.
On to the update...
I finally got some more editing done. If you're reading this, editor-darlin', I am trying to get this done and back to you. (I will email you later this morning after more coffee.)
I started the week up to my armpits in other people's stuff. It happens on occasion and I roll with it. No big deal. It needed to be done. We did it. We'd do it again it the occasion arose. Still, we're happy to slide back into our chosen roles as hermits. It did, however, derail my best laid plans. Which is why I am later than late on this edit deadline.
My sale and advertising went live on Friday, but not without some minor burps that felt major at the time. Turns out Kindle Countdown Deals don't start at 8am my time, but at 8am their time (i.e. Pacific Time). AND there was some fine print at ENT wherein all discounted books advertised have to be at the discounted price by 6am Eastern. So I thought I was well n truly screwed. Huzzah. When the afternoon ENT newsletter came out, my ad was in there, though. And all was right with the world.
I'll do some kind of breakdown of the ad's success tomorrow at Outside the Box. Meanwhile, Accidental Death is still at $1.99 until 8am Pacific, so if you haven't snagged a copy, now would be a good time. It'll go up to $2.99 after 10am my time. Tomorrow it will be back to its regular price of $3.99, so you're still getting one hell of a bargain.
So far, several someones in the KU program have read 2212 pages worth of Accidental Death. Works out to about four and a quarter books. 244 pages have already been read today. I like to think they either couldn't put it down last night or they had to start reading first thing this morning. Either way, it makes me feel good. I know several people have mentioned that Accidental Death is hard to put down. Yay.
In the reading news, I read both JB Lynn's new release (A Woof in Sheep's Clothing) and Silver James' new release (Double Cross: Hard Target Book 1) - and they were both awesome. I'm currently reading The First Wives Club. The movie - which I thought was a hoot - is so very loosely based on the book it's almost like a different animal. I think I'll write a post about that later this week.
My volunteer tomato plant - which I thought I'd killed - appears to be on the road to recovery. All its wilty leaves were perking up yesterday. Yay. We'll see if I actually get any tomatoes to harvest or if the animals eat them all.
I think that's about it for updates from me. Any updates from you this week?
