random friday updates

Reading- The Urban Hermit by Samuel Macdonald
Soundtrack of the day – Year of the Gentleman, Ne-Yo

So much to do, so little time in which to do it.

Today is Friday, so I have slightly more time than usual.

This evening’s projects include this very blog, some website updates for the release next week, finishing up interview question responses. Also, I’m still trying to figure out what to write for my guest blog post on Miscellaneous Moments. I feel obligated to make it something more interesting than the usual rambling and relevant to the book release. Suggestions are welcome!

I can’t wait to get back to writing fiction. I really miss it. If ever I make a substantial level of income, I’m hiring a marketing person to handle that stuff for me. Marketing is okay, even fun sometimes, but it removes a rather sizeable chunk of time that I might otherwise use to write books and such.

I am very happy not to be drawing right now. I like how the illustrations turned out, but my attention span for that part of the project was quite limited. I was so excited to be finished with the drawings that I half-assed the cover for the short story that I’m releasing on Smashwords next week. I think I devoted a huge 20 minutes to it. LOL, ah well. Free is free, right?

The story is entitled Mischief in Reau Garden. It features three characters from MacDowell Sisters & AnnaBeth, only as children rather than the oldsters they are in the novel. That should be up for download (up for download?) by Monday.

MacDowell Sisters & AnnaBeth should be ready for download then too, but not for free. Awww, I know. There will be a limited time coupon code for 50% off the ebook though, which will make the price $1.50.

The special illustrated edition release will be slightly delayed. It may be available toward the end of next week. I will anounce here on the blog when it’s ready to go. I am deeply sorry, dear ones.

Off the subject of books, I finally finished watching the first season of Dr. Who last weekend and began watching season 2. I am now in the David Tennant years. Woo! He’s not quite as manly as the first guy, but he’s still alright.

That’s all I have for now. Have a lovely weekend.
