So in the Midwest, it's finally feeling like fall. I may even have to switch my clothing around, to take out my colder-weather stuff, and pack away my sandals (which makes me sad, because my feet love sandals! Plus my most recent pedicure still looks nice.) The leaves are just starting to change colors, and media ads are beginning their relentless call for us all to prove we love people by spending lots of money on gifts, gifts, gifts! (Husband is still unemployed, so we're poor, poor, poor!) But don't worry folks, the economy is doing great!
All of which makes me wonder why my newest book still isn't available. I know the industry is in flux...it has been since I was first published seven years ago. But I've already had to change from 2 publishers, both of whom were sold and I didn't want to be part of the furniture that went with the sale. So I looked for promising new publishers...only to have them be sold also. And the one I'm dealing with now, takes FOREVER to get anything to print! So I try to keep upbeat, but I'm getting very frustrated.
No time to write, since now only do I have the 2 jobs, but family is demanding attention. Baby shower next weekend out of town, daughter coming in the following weekend. Babysitting in Michigan for the grandbaby the weekend after that. Not that I'm complaining about seeing people I love, since I love doing that! But sometimes I have to forcibly remind myself that I'm a writer, since I don't have any minutes to spare out of my days to write!
Hopefully I'll have better news next month. Until then, hugs to all of you, who are also a part of my extended family.
