I think this is my favorite clip art. I relate to it on so many levels.
Here I am in Magdalenaville instead of Cincinnati at the Lori Foster Readers and Authors Get-Together. So hey--to cheer us up, let's look at this cute book cover.
Tails of Love is the book written this year by Lori and friends, all proceeds of which go to animal-related charity. It comes in both ebook and paperback. Click on either of those links to read the blurb. It just came out this week, and I haven't read it, but thought I'd mention for you romance-reading animals lovers out there.
As you might guess, I spent yesterday jumping up and down, celebrating what Joyce Ann had written about The Blank Book. I also did some online "welcome mat" type stuff. Got my author page set up on Amazon (I think), renewed my website hosting, updated the website with a snippet from Joyce Ann's blurb.
Then--and this was scary--launched into a major shakeup of my MySpace page. The page was very kindly created for me by my son a year and a half ago. He did a fantastic job, using html and other letters I can't pronounce. It was perfect--until it was outdated. And I was clueless on how to update it. So yesterday I picked a template, cut out a bunch of verbosity I doubt anyone ever read, created a slide show of book covers, closed my eyes and hit "Save." I think it turned out okay. Take a look.
I took a promo piece to the one store in the universe that has The Blank Book on its shelves. Well...shelf. Lo and behold, there's only one book left. They've sold dozens. That's some nice news, huh?
And I looked at blog stats, something I don't do very often. (Not healthy to do it often, just like checking Amazon stats.)
A nice, busy day of catching up on things I really did need to do. And then there was the phone call from a friend telling me her new kitten has been named Magdalena. I'll try to get permission to post a picture of her, maybe next week.
But today... Today is writing! I'm having withdrawal symptoms. And hey, I get to wear my funky slippers.
