Here we are again. Tada!
Once again, I did no writing, but I did get some editing done. I really do love this book. However, I've loved all my books. Whether I love a book is not indicative of whether the world will love them, apparently. Derp.
I've been marketing my wide ass off. (Not literally, unfortunately. Would that marketing could reduce ass size... :sigh:) The ad generated 28 sales. Hopefully I'll see page reads from that in the next week or so. I sold 5 books I'm going to attribute to a combination of FB marketing and the increased rank from the ad sales. AD hit #48 in Hard-Boiled Mystery, which is always good. It also reached the top 100 in Noir. Of course, those rankings didn't last the day, but hey, it was nice to see them first thing in the morning. And the sale is still going - today and tomorrow. Woohoo.
I did a bit of reading. Finished two and DNF'd two.
Kind of fell apart on the activity and the eating this week. Only 4 out of 7 days of active stuff and some of that could barely count. I mean, I got up off my dead butt and did something, but whether 3 of those days burned any calories? Meh. I know I burned calories yesterday because I scrubbed the kitchen-stove rug by hand and then I scrubbed the floors and shook all the other rugs. Good upper-body workout, lemme tell ya.
On the other hand, I ate like a cow last week. Which leads me to...
I made a bunch of foods last week. Three straight days of baking - pizza, cake, and cookies - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. Finished the pizza Thursday, but we still have cake and cookies. It's not so much eating things that's getting me, though, it's the amounts of things I'm eating. I really need to cut down on the serving sizes. I'm a firm believer in 'it's not what you eat, it's how much of it you eat'. Gotta find some will power to eat less. And exercise more, of course.
We went the entire week with no rat! Peppermint, clove, and cedarwood oils did the trick. I think. I plan on doing an experiment starting tonight where I don't spray for a week and see if the furry bitch comes back. If I don't spray and she comes back, it was the spray that drove her away. If I don't spray and she doesn't come back, it's possible she got tired of rebuilding her nest. Or a predator ate her. I'm hoping it's not the latter. She really was cute as a bug's butt. And as annoying as she was, I don't want her to be dead. Still, she's a prey animal and we do have coyotes, bobcats, foxes, snakes, and owls who would all find her to be a yummy meal.
Other than that, not much going on out here in the back of beyond. What's up in your world?
ETA: Ahem. Totally forgot today would be Easter when I scheduled this post last night. Happy Easter, Everyone!
