Ah, the Weekend

This was a pretty good week. Two classes, not much going on, keeping in touch with family, got my business taken care of and bills paid. Not much left, but at least I got through. Don’t think I have anything this weekend, although I might use my blood donor voucher to see another Smokies game tomorrow.  I’ve been trying to write a song or songs, I’m getting pieces but no clarity yet. When it comes together, it’s when I get that piece I was missing to make it all happen.  I revisited the tune I wrote a week ago, and it doesn’t go with the chorus I wrote this week, so I’m at square two on both those songs.

Ah well. Take care of myself and my kitties. Who are driving me crazy. Oops, too late for that.

I got a new treatise from Bob Trubshaw at Heart of Albion Press, and immediately found a typo. Then a few pages later, another. By the time I’d found the third, I had Bob’s approval to go through and find everything I could find and report back to him. I miss doing this kind of work. Maybe Bob will put me to work again.

 

Hugs,

It’s Official!

I have not yet received a copy of my signed contract… as Senior Editor at Eternal Press (a subsidiary of Damnation Books)… but the owner just officially announced that my email address is now SrEditorEternalPress@gmail.com …

My Aunt died just a couple months ago.  She always thought I would be the next great American writer.  I think she would be just as proud of me as Senior Editor.

We have a great group of editors and copyeditors, many (perhaps most) of whom I had a hand in hiring and have developed wonderful relationships with.  My husband-in-law, James, is one of these, and his wife (my 3rd ex) Beth has applied to our CEO to work – temporarily or permanently – on the company website.

Eternal Press tied for 3rd in a poll by members of Love & Romance Cafe, an online group of ebook readers, and many off our authors won several of their top awards (although only one won for a book we published).

I think y’all already know that Eternal Press was bought (effective Jan. 1) by Damnation Books.  There are currently no plans to merge the companies, although a few functions may be shared.  So I guess you could say:

I WORK FOR ETERNAL/DAMNATION, AND I LOVE MY JOB!!!!!

Hugs,
Me
