Random musings

First, I just checked the Preditors and Editors Poll results and I'm really excited to see that Celestial Dragon tied for 13th place. Wow. I'm still smiling.

I spent hours yesterday trying to create mailing labels and postcards to announce my first solo booksigning. I can't wait to hold my first print book. Celestial Dragon went on sell Friday for the print version. But - I think I already blogged about that. Anywho - getting things ready for my first big event is making me crazy. In a good way, of course.

I also spent hours getting my tax information ready for the tax guy. I took him three years worth of writing expenses. He'd originally told me it was best to save my expenses for when I had income to claim against those expenses. Today, he told me we could apply all of 2006 expenses, but that it would be better to spread the other expenses out over the next few years. Sounded good to me, so yeah, have at it, Mr. Tax Guy. All of that is beyond my comprehension anyway.

The rest of my weekend was spent staring at html code. Ick. I don't know how the webguys do it all day. I'm webmistress for my RWA chapter and while I can handle simple stuff, some of it is beyond me. Needless to say, I'm learning a lot in the process of having to maintain our website. Mike from ktf-designs built the site and he's been very patient with me as I delve into new areas of web design.

But with all of that and spending three hours with the family on Saturday, I still wrote a full chapter on a new project. Whoop! It's all good.
