Almost there

8 Feb

I’m knee-deep in converting Mending Fences into the proper formats for uploading to various sellers. It’s a bit of a learning curve, but I’ve never been one to sit back and let others do for me what I can surely learn to do myself. Which has occasionally led to very long projects, like rebuilding the broken sprinkling system when we moved into our house.

Don’t get me wrong, there are certain things I do not attempt. I don’t do major car repairs. That’s best left to the experts, and we have a fantastic couple of shops we’ve used for years. And I don’t do stuff with electricity. Well…I change light fixtures and plugs. I know how to make sure the power is completely off where I’m working, and I test it to be sure. But aside from those two things, experts are required. I can play with the plumbing all I want, but not the power. Because if you mess up the plumbing, you get a watery disaster that can simply be cleaned. If you mess up the electricity, it can kill you.

So, from that tangent back to where I’m at. Almost there. The book will be live this Friday, February 10. I’m also doing a Createspace edition for anyone who prefers a paperback to an e-book, but that will take another week or two.

Oh, and I’m almost 10k words into the next book. See that gray challenge icon to the right? Yep, supposed to hit 60k by the end of the month. I’m thinking the next time I take on a challenge like that, I shouldn’t be trying to launch a book at the same time. Once it’s up, I’ll dive in fully to the WIP. The goal is to launch that one by May 1. Yes, it’s ambitious. Wish me luck!

    Congrats on tackling both the new book, and the release of this one! I admire people who dive in like that, learning curve or no.
