I'm still alive

Has it really been only four days since I found out the release date for my book?! I feel like it's been much, much longer. My mile long "to do" list is slowly dwindling. A lot of what I have left to do relies on me getting my official cover art. Can't make bookmarks without cover art. Can't make book trailer without cover art. Can't make business...well you get the idea. I have the mock up, which is what I am using to see what looks good where.

Eternal Press has an excerpt from Fade to Black up on their site: http://www.eternalpress.ca/fadetoblack.html Drop by there and take a peek.

I am all amped up, knowing the volume of things that need to be done. I'm so amped, that I'm procrastinating in non-efficient ways. I could be editing my next book but no, I'm either blogging, tweeting, or updating my facebook/myspace. I've messed with my book trailer so much that I have the music trapped in my head. I need to stop and get to work, but my brain is constantly turning to mush. I'm thinking about disconnecting my Internet tomorrow so that I can stop dicking around. I thought I had months left to plan this. I'm lucky that I already had banners finished and a book trailer started or else I'd be more in the hole that I am now. But, when I know I have a large volume of work to do, I always freeze up and look for other frivolous things to do.

It's amazing I've ever gotten published at all. :o)

There is good news within all of this chaos though; I think I sorted out a plot problem that I had with The Memory Remains. (TMR is the sequel to F2B.) Looks like I got a story to write for NaNoWriMo!
