My shiny new cover art! isn't it pretty?

My shiny new cover art! isn’t it pretty?

Hunting Medusa is released into the wild.  I’m so excited.  And so stressed–there are so many things to do between now and then, not least of which is finishing these dratted rewrites on the second in the trilogy.

With Thanksgiving a week from tomorrow, I’ve pretty well resigned myself to not finishing by then.  I have one day off from the day-job between now and then, and that just isn’t long enough to finish everything that needs to be fixed.  I’ll just have to be okay with getting it done after Thanksgiving.  The question now is when after?  I have to set a new deadline for myself, amid all of the other things that have to be done.  I need to write a couple of blog posts for author friends who are going to host me when it’s closer to Release Day (and that is how I’ve been seeing it in my head, only in giant bold-face as well as capitalized), I need to get some other promo things taken care of, I have the day-job, the next round of holidays, which means cooking, baking, shopping, socializing.  I need a clone.  Or two, maybe.  I would definitely send a clone to the day-job so I could stay here and write (and rewrite).  A second clone could deal with chores and things like cooking.

Hm, what would you do if you had a clone to do all of your day to day tasks?  Interesting thought.  Not one I have time to ponder too long, I suppose, with the to-do list on my desk multiplying as we speak.  I just know I’d put one to very good use right now so I could spend my time working on my books.

In addition to the cooking that happened just today in our house, I also posted another snippet from Hunting Medusa over on my Facebook page.   I hope you’ll pop over to take a peek and let me know what you think.

In the meantime, I’m crawling back into my revision cave for a while so I can make a bit more progress before the day is over.
