I got to the writing cabin late today. The dogs let me sleep in, and I didn’t feel the pressure to get anything in particular accomplished. Don’t get me wrong, I had a list.
I worked my way into the paranormal office and decided upon the chair and ottoman instead of Patty Hall’s old desk. My back is still bugging me this week.
Lisa showed up with coffee.
“Thanks, you’re a lifesaver.”
“What are we working on today?”
“I’m going to read through The Viral Blues. I need to make a list of those silly little graphics to see what I have to order.”
“I wore my hat so I could help you.”
“I see that, but I don’t think that one appears in this story.”
“Do you want me to change? I have a closet full of them.”
“It’s fine. Honestly, I’m just reading mostly.”
Doubt, the raven, soared in on silent wings landing on my chair back.
“Do your damndest. I don’t think you can distract me today.”
“Brrrrrr. Kaw. Kaw, Kaw.”
Lisa walked to the haunted window and opened it. Today’s image was of a bunch of hillbilly vampires at an old shack. “What do you suppose he means?”
“No idea. I don’t speak raven. He’s not going to get to me today.”
“If you’re just reading, I have an episode of Lisa Burton Radio I can work on.”
“Whatever you need, just keep the coffee hot.”
Lisa went to take care of her business.
I finished my read through. There were several sentences without periods and odd caps in the middle of sentences. I fixed them, but they are obvious cut and paste errors. I might have to do one more pass on this one.
I also completed my list of graphics. I’ll get those to Sean Harrington after the cover shows up. I’m still worried about having all the promotional stuff by September.
My next step will be to send this one off to the formatter, but I need the graphics first. That’s something to keep in mind as this unfolds. I like to get everything ready ahead of time.
I spent the rest of my day reading a short story. My reading always seems to fall behind, but this summer I might get a bit accomplished.
Hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend.
