Sunday Update - Week 9

It doesn't feel like Sunday.  Not sure what day it feels like, but not Sunday.  As I approach release day, my sense of time gets all messed up... err, messed up worse than usual.

Anyway, before I begin, I'd like to let y'all know that the Kindle version of Blood Flow is free today and tomorrow - sort of to celebrate Leap Year.  Because, why not?  It's an extra day that only comes around every four years. Doesn't it deserve some lovin', too?  If you haven't snagged your copy, now's your chance. 

This past week... let's see...

I finished the edit notes for In Deep Wish yesterday morning and started the proofreading.  This is the part where I re-read it and try very hard not to re-write the whole damn thing because I want it to be perfect for you and it's never perfect.  This pass is supposed to be JUST for making sure I don't have typos or misplaced commas or irritating shit like that.  I did chapter one last night and have a page of fixes because I couldn't stop myself.  Everything will be fixed and entered and the book will be uploaded for pre-order on Friday if it kills me. 

There is now a Goodreads listing for In Deep Wish.  And in case you missed it, here's the cover I revealed on Friday both at Killer Chicks and at Outside the Box.

I got a note about a couple typos in Blood Flow. Those have been fixed and the fixed copies have been uploaded to Amazon and Createspace. 

I went looking for cover images to send to my artist for Up Wish Creek.  It's not due out until August, but I want to have an idea to send to her so she can get started. I found a couple that will work.  It'll be just Jo again with a purple background.  I'm thinking library in the back this time.  Like the trees with Spanish Moss this time.  And the antiques for Wish in One Hand.

I didn't do anything active on two days last week - Thursday and Saturday.  But Monday, I overdid it gardening, so maybe that balances out a little.

Speaking of gardening, my beds are all uncovered now.  Which was necessary because all my bulbs are coming up and the leaves were getting mutated under the leaf litter.  Two crocuses are already blooming and my hyacinths have buds.  Moving all the bulbs last year seems to have made them all happy.  We'll see who blooms and who doesn't.  The hyacinths didn't bloom at all last year, so at least that's something.

Hubs and I went for a drive yesterday.  The weather was gorgeous and we're both getting a little stir-crazy up in here.  We found some roads we hadn't been down yet, saw some pretty sights, and just relaxed.  Nice way to recharge. 

What's new in your world?

  1. Pretty sure you posted about the freebie on Facebook so I'll go track down the post and share it! I managed activity 6 of 7 days so, yay. Yesterday was butt in chair all freaking day but so much done! Edits. Uploads. Business. *collapse* I still don't have any daffodil buds. This makes me have a sad. Maybe I'll just buy one for my b-day. ;) I have noticed odd places where bluebells are coming up. Weird. We've lived her almost 20 years and I still find stuff cropping up. (Former owner was a master gardener whose wife just let stuff go after his death.) Happy Sunday. Happy Sadie Hawkins Day tomorrow. :D
