Due to AtoZ, I scheduled my cover reveal a little earlier than I otherwise would have, and (unfortunately) that huge marketing push came about the time I was preparing my manuscript for the formatter. Gah! I'll never do that again. I was so busy there for a couple of weeks, I thought I was going to die!
Now I've come to a strange lull. I'm literally twiddling my thumbs with nothing much to do. I keep feeling like I'm forgetting something, but according to my detailed publishing to-do list, I'm right on track.
I registered Come Back with the copyright office last week. (Take THAT, you plagiarizers! :P) And now, I wait.
At least things are going well.
The mulberry bush was a good omen after all. :)
Yes, I said 'bush' singular. The smaller one died in a horrible leaf blower accident that neither I nor the yard man could have foreseen. I promptly yanked the lone survivor back into the house until his branches could grow a little stronger. (The success of my debut depends on it! LOL) Now he's happily sunning himself in my back yard.
The lemon tree survived the winter, too, even with all the freezes.
Now I just have to concentrate on reviving the grass.
That was a totally surreal moment.
My mini vacation is about to come to an end. Book launch activities start Monday with a guest post on Jeff Hargett's blog. We'll be posting a list titled 'How To Help An Author.'
Adios until then. :)
