It might be time for me to change my blog theme again. I’ve not done that in a long time. I used to regularly change at least the header, but since I’ve been working I’ve had neither the time nor the desire to muck with that stuff. But I can make custom headers AND backgrounds for this one. Maybe I should look into it.
Anyway… over the weekend I got some proofs – the second round now, mind you – back from the SSRLP publisher again. Guess what? Yep, more mistakes. I found a few we missed the first time through and some brand-spanking NEW ones injected somehow. I have NO idea how though. NONE.
No word yet on the new book deal though. I sent the Editor-in-Chief my combined TOC a while back but he’s not gotten back to me. I better contact my agent to see what’s happening. I don’t have anything firm to say “go” so I haven’t, and I’m not done with this one yet.
I miss writing fiction though.
Speaking of fiction…
Congratulations to Linda Cassidy Lewis of Out of My Mind on being accepted for publication! Wow! That’s awesome news. It CAN still happen, even with the gatekeeper system failing. Once in a while, someone gets it right. Congratulations Linda. Bravo!
I just want to be able to DO it again, never mind get PAID for it. I’m happy for Linda though. 🙂
Oh, and I’m thinking of picking out a few of my short stories and putting them on Amazon Kindle and Smashwords and whatever for 99 cents. I’m also considering putting my book prices down to 99 cents to see if I can attract some attention to my work. (Don’t ask why; I can’t write anything new right now.)
If you’ve got thoughts on that, let me know. Some of you already did over on Facebook. Feel free to sound off here too.
Diet and exercise
I’ve been sort of craving legumes for a little while, but we broke our diet this weekend which means I can’t have them for a few days (weeks?) yet. Oh well, it was TOTALLY worth it.
I’ve been intimidated for about 12 weeks by my job, and last week during a pilot of our new order control and management system I had a bomb drop in my brain as I realized my role in all this. I have no idea what to do, how to do it, or any of the essential things I should know to do what’s expected of me. Sound confusing? It does to me too. I’m praying like never before, which is a good thing, but I’m also worrying myself into an early grave, which isn’t.
Well… depending on who you ask, I guess.
That’s all, folks!
I guess I haven’t got a lot to say right now. I really wish I knew what the hell I was doing, but life is unfolding faster than I can figure it out.
Have a great week, everyone. You’re in our prayers.
