So here’s the update.
Last week was one of those weeks where everything that could go wrong did go wrong. The formatting of My Lord Hades gave me a little grief and it took three days to get it to look right on Amazon Kindle. Then on the PDF version an extra page kept appearing and I still don’t know why it kept adding it. Although, a friend did tell me that it’s normal not to get the formatting right the first time.
Don was kind enough to leave the cell phone/computer modem with me all day last Wednesday, which helped me get a lot done. Part of my problem is that I have the Internet only at night, two hours before I have to get the kids ready for bed and hit the sack myself. This gives a mother very little time to upload stuff and look over the results when the said kids keep interrupting me. Then if I have to post to blogs, answer emails, or do a little networking. It doesn’t happen.
And now all that has changed. Since Don’s gone on a trip this week, I was going to drive the 30 minutes to the library every few days to check emails so they don’t pile up. At 20 emails a day, not including junk mail, I’d have about 120 emails by the time he returned and I hate going through the 20 a night while I post to my this blog, my novel blog, my pseudonym name for a non-fiction I’m working on with my sister, Self-Published Author’s Lounge, Facebook, and MySpace. And that was after I cut down on my blogs places. Then there is the social networking on other sites and….needless to say, writer’s are overworked, whether they self-publish or traditional publish.
Friday, Don surprised me with a cell phone/computer modem he bought with his plan. I love it! It was red with a changeable faceplate that had a white background and red and pink hearts. The family plan has limited minutes that we have to share, but there are a lot of minutes each month so I’m not worried. I love the features and I now have unlimited texting and Internet, I really needed the Internet.
So this week is a little better. I have My Lord Hades upload to Amazon Kindle, which can be purchased here. I have the PDF sent to my POD printer. I should get the proof copy about the 14th of June and once approved, the print version will be coming out in August.
