Hard against Xmas Mail deadline
- To my horror, the post office clerk told me when I asked on Friday,
that the 11th, Monday... today if you take Digest, is the last day
for mailing to Europe.
I should have known, but time has got away from me. I have to mail to
a great many people in Europe and I shall not make it. My problem is
that I am easily distracted.
One of my author pals has an editor who will not permit "erections" in
a romance novel, not as a word, anyway. What on Earth else does one
Most of the euphemisms make me think more of the incredible hulk than
the romance hero's wedding tackle.
I've been chatting --too much-- on the Dorchester forums, but my sales
numbers at Amazon make me think that maybe it is worth it.
Meanwhile my dear husband is creating a very zoomy office for himself,
with lots of display areas, and next he wants me to paint the walls
using a spatula. I agreed to help before I realized that it would
take three times as long as using a roller and applying one coat of paint.
The library wants its swordmaster books and videos back, and I haven't
finished trying to put into words what it is that the hero does with
his weapon. Oh, and last night I stayed up to watch LOTR, and I'll do
it again tonight.
I'm also trawling my friends on MySpace for a cover model for my next
interviewee, and trying to find out what kind of music swordsmen
really like (if not castanets/flamenco as in The Mask of Zorro or the
Imperial March in The Empire Strikes Back).
Have a fabulous week. Thanks for your support! And remember, you can
reply or ask questions here.
