This was me most of this week. Except the only time I was out in the sunshine was to fill the bird feeders. I apparently picked up the upper respiratory version of whatever plague was floating around our house at Thanksgiving (which was so much fun for those of us who weren’t sick). I always feel dramatic when I’m sick! But no worries. I’m definitely on the mend.
I also woke Wednesday to find my website was down. The servers in Virginia that host my site suffered some catastrophe overnight. I’m incredibly impressed that the company had nearly everything up and running again by this afternoon. So if you dropped by during the downtime, I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
But I’ve been working away! SMALL TOWN TROUBLE is edited to bits and almost ready to be officially published. It’s always fun and a bit of a challenge working with small presses, but I rather enjoy it. It’s an interesting contrast to working with a traditional publishing house. One thing I’ve learned though is that the process is much the same, only small presses have much, much smaller budgets. What they lack in financing, they make up in enthusiasm. I feel so blessed to be able to enjoy both publishing worlds.
Remember to pop by and pre-order SMALL TOWN TROUBLE in either print or ebook. It’s so encouraging to learn that readers are excited about the book! I’ve linked to Amazon, but it will be available at BN.com and iBooks, too.
I still have Thanksgiving up, despite all my talk about getting Christmas out quickly. This weekend I’ll toss the pumpkins down into the ravine so they burst and become treats for the squirrels and raccoons. I’m hoping they will keep the raccoons out of the feeders for a while. This morning I found the lid of on feeder on the ground, and a male cardinal practically bathing in sunflower seeds!
Tell me–how are your holiday preparations going?
