You’d think having three books out in the same month might motivate me. Ha!
I’ve let my Internet/email/(and now) satellite TV issues distract me. And of course there are my two new toys—my ultra-compact little ASUS ePC (7″ screen, wireless, pretty celery green!) and new Canon Elph camera (SD1100 in metallic brown)—to play with.
I wanted more portable technology for a couple of reasons. I’d love to find someplace, not my office, to work in every now and then just to change it up. Also, I wanted a camera small enough I would be encouraged to keep it in my purse—not just for Blog pics, but I’m thinking of trying my hand at some freelance photojournalism and I want pics to help me develop new story ideas.
And did I mention my daughter’s pregnant? That’s been weighing on my mind. Yes, I’m excited. Another munchkin for the 3 1/2-year-old to torment. The technology will help me be a more flexible babysitter. Gawd, did I just say that? Have to watch that impulse or I’ll be buried in diapers.
So what should I be working on? I have edits of the next Dark Realm story and a quickie I’d like to finish up for The Cave. Better get my page counters ready—and you be sure to nag me too!
Last, here’s the cover for the November book. Got a great quality jpeg for it today, so now I have to start thinking about promo materials—another tangent for me to follow!
