I made a form for people who want to hear about promotions!

Well, this has been a weirdly productive week. I say productive because: 

 I got my contact form ready and waiting!! 

It  has a section for getting notified if you want to hear about free promotions, giveaways, new books or just one book in particular... And you can also click on no to everything, because I'm just wacky that way. 
 I showed a friend of mine the form and she said it was clearly written in my own voice... which means I sound like a teenager on a sugar high... But I've known that ever since I actually was a teenager on a sugar high.
It's a little long, but it's the short version. :)
I'm thinking of making a second form just because I feel this one won't annoy people enough... or maybe I'm just hoping I can get a smile out of someone.

As I was saying, productive:

I got Cameras on kindle!!

It looks really nice now that I fixed the chapters. I used the "template" John (thank you sooo much! - again) made me and I got it done in a day after I figured it out. 
I even went back to Grace and added a link or two at the end as well... I'm lying, it was 3 links, but who's counting? :)

Now for the weirdly...
My doors are closed, the windows that are open have screens on them, I haven't been out of the apartment in two days... how do these insects keep getting in?!?
I'm thinking there's some sort of magical vortex in the kitchen, or maybe the insects have evolved into beings capable of passing through walls.... Hey, if my cat could do it, why can't a fly or a mosquito?

Non sequitur moment: I hate non-productive insomnia... Oh well... 
Okay, done with the "weirdly"

Oh, and just because I can ask, what's your opinion on changing arrangements at the last possible moment? Fair, unfair, or just plain mean? Why wait until the last moment? It's like waiting for someone to organize three dozen roses and then saying you should change them to lilies.
No, I'm not saying what I'm talking about, but if you're reading this, it's probably not about you... unless you spy, in which case: shame on you! 
Just kidding about the last part...

Well, the weekend is practically done and tomorrow I get back to my normal schedule, let's see how that goes. :)

Back to "normal"? So many lists my lists have lists...

Hi there!!

How did February treat everyone? Hopefully it was kinder to you than it was to me. :) Just kidding, a little bit.
 My head's been pounding intermittently for the last two, maybe three weeks. I figure that's not a good thing, I also don't really know how to make it stop unless maybe I stop a bit... Can I sleep now? hehe

Last steps of the things with immediate deadlines. Took my dissertation to be printed and made into a pretty little green thing with golden letters.... and my mind just went to a dragon... hm... I would rather have a dragon than ten copies of my dissertation... The dragon would be cuter. :)

Anyways, I figured I should probably see where I left off on my imaginary worlds. I'm doing some corrections to Cameras - though it is kind of officially done. But I decided to fix the commas (anyone who read Grace knows I have issues with commas) and found a few more repeated words to fix... You know, when you use the same word in consecutive sentences and you don't notice it when you read the thing for the second, third, or even eleventh time? Well, twelve, combined with reading aloud seems to be helping.

I'm thinking of creating a form over at the website for people who'd like to be contacted when another book comes out or there are any promotions or giveaways... I think that would be something some people would like. I know I would. Still thinking that over, and how to let people know that exists would be a problem... Can't really message all of them, can I? No, probably not... I actually stopped to consider it for 3.4 seconds.

Oh! And I got a third review on Amazon!!

Also, planning are finally being set in motion for the official launch of Cameras Tell No Lies... I should start to keep track of the gaps in time between my finishing the books and having an actual "launch" party. :)
