Last week was pretty busy for me, so let's jump right in...
I finished the edits for BloodFlow. Tweaked the hell out of it and it's as good as I can make it. (Thanks, as always, to my editor, Janet, for all her hard work.) Then I formatted it for epub and uploaded that sucker for pre-order. It's live, if you're interested. (Thanks for the 2 pre-orders I already have on this one.)
Then I worked on the print formatting and the print cover for BloodFlow. I ran into a stumbler on the cover. I did it exactly the way they said to do it, and they rejected it. This morning, I did some magic and I'm trying it again. Once they approve it, I'll order a proof. If that's hunky-dory, then it'll be live for purchase.
Speaking of covers and proofs, I got the new print cover for Wish in One Hand. It's been uploaded, accepted, and a proof has been ordered. That'll be here Wednesday. If it's cool, I'll make it live for purchase, too. So sparkly...
Heard from the Kid yesterday. She's doing well, which is always bonus.
I had a contest for $10 on my blog last week. One person qualified - Silver James. She had indicated I should donate the money to an animal rescue organization. That will be done when I go to the vet to pick up Max's ashes. Fitting, I think.
Oh, and I attempted to make postcards for BloodFlow marketing, but every time I tried to upload a file to Vistaprint, my modem freaked out. Not sure what the issue is, since I can't recreate the problem on any site but Vistaprint. I'll be looking for a new postcard supplier today.
And I'll be beginning the process of creating cover art for In Deep Wish today, too. I have a couple ideas - one of which involves me looking for a model for Zeke. I found one dude. He's pretty close to what I imagine Zeke looks like, but none of his poses convey the attitude I'm shooting for. I may scrap that and either pick another character to share the cover with Jo or just use Jo and the background I like.
Like I said, busy busy. I don't even want to talk about the state my home is in. I need to dust and vacuum and do the bathrooms and the windows and... Yeah, I'd rather be in the woods.
What's the skinny where you're at?
