Well, In Deep Wish is out into the world now. A huge thanks to everyone who pre-ordered and ordered since it was released. My big celebration? I took the rest of the week off.
Oh, and the print copy proof arrived and was approved. It's available for ordering at Amazon now, if you're into paperbacks instead of ebooks. Sorry, but I can't afford to make the paperbacks available for wide distribution any longer.
Yesterday, I received the edits for Fertile Ground. I looked over the edit letter to get a feel for how much work would be involved. Then I set a mostly-firm date for release. Then I got some advice about the date I'd picked and changed my mind. Now I'm not sure, other than it'll probably be sometime in the week before Labor Day. I'll let you know what the firm date is when it gets closer.
I really need to work on the cover for FG. I want it to be as good as the one for Dying Embers, but I totally can't afford that dude again. So I'm doing it myself. I'm still playing with it or I'd show it to you. I like the concept, but something's still not blowing my skirt up. I think I probably need to spend some moolah. Meh. I should probably just get the artist for the genie series to do it. I dunno. Arrgghh.
Ah, the glamorous life of a writer.
In non-writerly stuff, my tulips are just about ready to bloom. And we found a flowering tree just off the yard that hasn't bloomed before. It's right under where all those horrid grape vines were. Now that I've decimated those damn things, the little tree can blossom. Yesterday, I went out and made life even easier for it by trimming back some of the other stuff around it and pulling out a few weedy shrubs. Not sure what the little tree even is - a fruit tree of some kind... cherry or apple, I think. Plus, my lilac has real buds on it! First time since I moved it to a nicer location. Yay.
Any updates to share this week?
