Checking in late today. I’ve been busy trying to get the cover ready for Straying from the Path. I think, think, it’s there, or at the very least, almost there.
This means I’ll be doing a cover reveal pretty soon, not to mention having the book go on sale.
In other news, I sent out two submissions this week without receiving any rejections. I did some additional work on the fairy tale series. But mostly it was a week of Photoshop and Vellum (for the interior layout).
So now I send the Kindle file to my e-reader and wait on CreateSpace* to either accept or kick back the print cover and interior. I’ve found that staring at my inbox does not make the fine folks at CreateSpace work any faster, so I think I’ll do what I did last week and curl up with a book.
*My spell checker wants to change CreateSpace to meatspace. I find this hilarious.
Busy week, busy weekend. It’s studio dance competition season, once again. So, yesterday was taxes and Girl Scout cookie selling, today was the first competition.
I’m letting the novel I completed last week “compost” for a bit, so I started working on another (longer) fairy tale. If I can pull this off, I should (should) be able to start publishing two new series this year.
Also this week, six rejections! Some are leftover from last year. I did send one back out again, but I suppose it’s time to start looking at a few more markets.
I also worked through some graphic design classes as well. And that’s it. I’m just feeling amazingly accomplished for getting the taxes done that I may have to curl up and spend the rest of the day reading.
