Seems we've come to another Monday. Well, okay, I guess if we have to. No, I can tolerate it because it's pay day. That means cheesecake in my future. It's only one more Monday until The Treasure Hunter's Lady comes out. I'm sure you all have your calenders marked. I spent this weekend reading it again. That's it, I'm done. No more. Make the madness stop.
I uploaded the .epub file to my e-reader. It looks fantastic. I said so to my husband, who sort of rolled his eyes. I've learned a lot about file conversions this last week. I am happy to share this knowledge, should anyone desire it. I cheerfully accept payment in cheesecake.
I intended to share with you an excerpt of THL, but I went and left my computer at home, so I guess you'll have to wait until later. Gee. May I, instead, offer you a thought about the novel? I thought you'd like that.
At the first of the novel, Abel is confronted by a fortuneteller. He attempts to get out of a palm reading, but she's having none of that. She tells him that he's in great danger and the only thing that can save him is if he finds love. Abel has a line that goes something like this: "Love, danger and despair--almost the perfect fortune, darlin'."
Abel's line kind of sums up how I feel about writing, editing, creating a cover and formatting as well. Lots of love because it's such a goofy story in some ways and the characters are real to me. Danger because I really had no idea what I was getting into. Despair because there were times I thought I'd never get through some parts of this adventure.
A couple of days ago I mentioned I thought the second will probably come easier. I really think that's true. There won't be any of this panicked flailing while I stumble through some formatting that I had no clue about in the first place. I feel like a wizard or something. It's magical.
Also, Katheryn Lane awarded me with the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. Aww, that makes me feel all fuzzy inside. You'll want to drop by and visit her and say 'thanks' like I did, for visiting this blog.
And I went for my first walk of the new year yesterday. The weather was gorgeous, but the trail was muddy. My poor shoes are filthy. I enjoyed the fresh air though. Happy Monday! Rest assured, I will be having cheesecake soon. Cheesecake dripping with strawberry sauce. You know, to offset the calories I burned while walking.
