This Week

So, I was really lazy this week.  By “lazy,” I do not mean “inactive.”  Quite the contrary.  I went back up to the lake, swam and hung out with my best friend, and took a trip to a water park!  When I say I’ve been lazy, I mean that I haven’t done one bit of work that I should have done.  I mean, I got the Library of Congress number all sorted and my graphic designer and I have an official cover deadline, but other than that, I haven’t been a very good publisher.

Oh, I did get my first piece of mail addressed to Wind Trail Publishing though!  That was pretty cool!  

I have also received two shining reviews from people who finished reading “Cemetery Tours” this week.  One was my friend from high school, a fellow author, and one of the smartest guys I know.  He called it “suspenseful” and said that it always kept him wondering.  Good!  The second was from my high school English teacher.  You know how in movies, there’s always that one teacher who really makes an impact on students’ lives?  The kind of teacher that everyone hopes they’ll have in real life?  That’s who this guy was to basically our entire school.  I’m not going to lie, I was nervous about sending him my manuscript.  I mean, sending it to friends and family members is fine, but he was my writing mentor.  He inspired years upon years of students to love opera and Mozart and Shakespeare and mythology and Chaucer and other great works of classic music and literature… and here I was sending him my manuscript!  Hardly a classic!  But he sent me the nicest email telling me how much he enjoyed it.  Coming from the master who taught me how to write a paper, that meant a lot!  

Well, as always I will keep you all updated on this crazy road to becoming a published author.  Next week, I plan to do a little more research on eBook publishing and go back to putting the finishing touches on formatting my manuscript.  I think that’s been my least favorite part of the process.  Seriously, it’s worse than editing ten million times over.
