So it is my last blog of the month and it somehow seems like in this month where I launched my first book, I ought to be able to be all profound, but you know what? I am EXHAUSTED!
I guest blogged three days a week (a week ahead initially, but fell down on that somewhere along the line—poor Gwen just got it last night), I had a launch party, and I tried to keep track of where I stood in rankings...
I EDITED a book that is due to my editor tomorrow (though thankfully have gotten another week from my editor... my FABULOUS editor is sadly leaving, and has handed me off to a colleague who happens to be on VACATION next week, so was perfectly happy to give me another week... which is needed because I only gave my agent a week with it... bad me. I need a spanking. It just seems like I always underestimate the time it will take to edit, so it always comes down to the wire. Anyway, Ellen is THRILLED to not have to speed read it before we turn it in.
And I wrote the first half of a book... Or close enough to say I suspect I will win BuNoWriMo (though this will be my first WriMo to come down to the last day or two to win—usually I have 3 or 4 days leeway... not so this time. And the BOOK isn't done... I didn't think it would be. Thrillers run 80-100K and this is on track to be no exception.
So Whew! *wipes brow *
So TODAY, I would love you to come over and see me at Lady Gwen's blog. I got my first negative review this week and am pondering how it fits into my world view...
In the meantime... some things that made me laugh or Squee...

So there we have it... have a great weekend, friends! With the holiday next week, I may be slightly scarcish, though I have guest spots Monday and Friday, and THEN I will make a better effort to get back to normal. I've been BAD getting around to friends' blogs this month, as the promo seems to be all I can do... But I will be back to it! I promise!
