A day for rest

273 fiction words, 687 total words, 4 hours on publication

Greetings and salutations, folks! I’m having a nice, relaxing day with my son watching Hermitcraft live streams on Twitch and Beam. We started with Xisuma, where he responded to Elder Youth’s comment in the stream (cue fangirl moment here), and EY actually thought it was pretty good advice. Sometimes all you need to do is hear something from your idol to make it sink in. <3

I should talk about yesterday, though, when I had a bunch of time to get things done while doing laundry, and I did! I spent a vulgar amount of time on some cover art and on trying to self-publish Space Cats in print on NookPress. It was awesome, and not as hard as I thought. In other ways, though, it was harder. Why can the different publishing systems not have the same requirements? I don’t know. At any rate, I have another proof copy ordered.

Now, I should mention that Space Cats is up for sale (and available for purchase)! Unfortunately, the print and Kindle versions aren’t linked yet, so I was waiting for that to happen before I put up the big BUY MY BOOK HERE page, but now I think I just need to get it done. I can add links as they show up.

It’s hard to get it all done and appearing at once, you know? Kind of like cooking Thanksgiving dinner. I don’t know how my mom manages it. To get the turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes and corn and crescent rolls all out of the kitchen and on the table at the same time? Yeah, it’s a lot like trying to publish on Smashwords and Amazon and CreateSpace and NookPress all at once. Everything has different turnaround times, and formatting, and print proofs, and yeah. It’s a mess I’ll have to get some practice with, definitely.

So yes, I should mention I wrote 273 fiction words yesterday, with 687 total words and 4 hours on publication. And that’s all I have for today! I hope everyone is having a lovely, relaxing, cool spring day. I hope the cool weather sticks around, actually. This is the perfect temperature today for me. Much loves.
