The Countdown is On

Hi, friends!  What’s up, what’s up?

I know I haven’t been as active here as I should be.  To be honest, my days are consumed with getting the new book ready to go IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS!  AGH!

Seriously, it does not feel like it’s that close.  I feel like I have all the time in the world when… I don’t!  I know that as an independent publisher, technically I don’t have to answer to anyone and if I wanted to postpone the release date, I could, because, let’s face it, I answer to no one. Mwa ha ha.  But the thing is, I am a professional, I want to be a professional, and a professional keeps her deadlines, especially her self-imposed deadlines.  That’s all there is to it.  I want my books to be just as high quality and on time as though they were coming from a big time publishing company.  And that means sticking to deadlines!

Unfortunately, thanks to all the computer work and reading and what not, I have developed a strain in my right eye.  I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but my eyesight is terrible.  Like, God-awful.  Without correctional lenses, I can’t even see the giant E at the top of the letter pyramid.

My dad has a history of genetic eye diseases which I am more likely to pass on to my son than he is likely to pass on to me, but at the same time, my oldest sister has the disease so, you know, stuff happens.  The point is, I have to take good care of my eyes, and unfortunately, I’ve chosen a profession with a lot of reading and a lot of computer time.  I haven’t been posting as much or as active online as I usually am.  Trying to give my poor right eye a rest.

What else is new? Well…

My sunflowers are beginning to actually look like future sunflowers!

Cemetery Tours is now up to 45 reviews on Amazon!  Just five shy of my goal for July 1!

And I had the best snow cone I’ve ever had in my entire life.

  1. I hope your eye gets better soon! It’s so tough trying to drag yourself away from the computer when everything is on there, even if it causes you physical discomfort looking at it… still, we bring it on ourselves! Good luck with the release! 🙂

  2. Soooooo excited about your new book! Congrats! And your sunflowers look great! I have a woodchuck living under my neighbor’s garage who enjoys biting the heads off of mine. 😦 He’s a pain in the butt!!!!

  3. Ahh that’s so exciting! Congrats 🙂 I’m sorry about your eyes–I can’t see the E without my glasses, all the time, so don’t worry! But definitely don’t strain it if you don’t have to. Yay sunflowers, reviews, and snowcones! (love bahama bucks) Have a great week!
