the week got away from me

Magic and Manners cover

I have these plans, man. Plans to blog daily, or at least week-daily. They’re good plans! But they’re apparently not reality-based plans. :)

It’s been a busy week that doesn’t necessarily feel like I’ve gotten a lot done, but last time I said that someone said she couldn’t imagine doing as much as I do, so I’m probably wrong.

*Most* of my work time the past several days has been getting MAGIC & MANNERS soft-launched (you can buy it on Kobo! and Kindle! and Audible!), and in the next day or two as it finishes propagating through the system there’ll be a big excited launch post. That’s taken up a lot of time and brain power, but it’s WORKING, bookstores, ACTUAL BOOKSTORES are starting to be able to put orders in! AAAAHHH!!! SO EXCITING!!!

And almost as excitingly, that means all the Thinks To Do for MAGIC & MANNERS have been crossed off the To Do List, and it’s been moved to the tail end of the page where it can rest on its laurels while I…don’t. :)

We had a wee little bit of snow on Friday before school, which was very exciting indeed. We went out to play in it, because it was obviously going to be gone before school got out.

And although it took me ALL WEEK, I got the first page of my Elfquest ‘coloring book’ done, which pleases me greatly.

Ted said, “Are you going to send it to (the friend) who bought it for you, when you have it finished?” I was like, “It’s SEVEN HUNDRED PAGES, I’m going to be coloring this FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!” :)
