Like sands through the hourglass–or coffee through my veins, Monday relentlessly marches in each week. I had a weekend. Well, a Saturday anyway. We met Only and Stormageddon around the corner from Lawyer Guy’s office. Several months ago, a friend’s Native American Art and Jewelry gallery was completely destroyed by fire. She found space about a block away from the old location and her grand opening was Saturday. Several natives were there to celebrate with flutes, drums, and sage blessings. It was a fun morning and I was thrilled to discover some of her artifacts survived. I’ll talk about Grandfather Chair one of these days. I’ll have to get a picture from Only so you can see what I’m talking about.
I bought my plane tickets for NYC yesterday. I caught some low prices on Southwest and jumped on them. I saved close to $100. Some travel guru said the best time to buy tickets is 45 days before the flight. I’ll check that day too but I don’t think Southwest plays by the same algorithms. Which is fine. I’m happy with the price I paid.
Sunday was focused on writing. DOUBLE CROSS is this *holds up thumb and index finger squeezed together* close to completion and it’ll be going out to my CP and beta readers soon. Like today. Maybe. Today is the deadline I set for myself. I’ll be uploading the draft and the cover to Amazon so I can get it up for pre-order. Yes, I’ll be sharing the link. 😉
For those of you who haven’t seen it on Facebook, here’s the cover. I’m still working on the blurb. Have I mentioned I HATE writing blurbs? Yeah. No really. I do. *shudder* That’s pretty much my life at the moment. Hours spent at the keyboard with no real break in sight, including my NYC trip. It’ll be a working one, even beyond the RWA conference.
Who did something fun this weekend? Who didn’t? *raises both hands* Okay. Actually, the way DC is shaking out, it’s pretty fun. And the closing scene is already written. How awesome is that?!? 😀
