I've made an orange cake and now we're headed down to Indianapolis to spend the day with Pat's mom. My folks are up in Michigan. I'll be there next month and the month after, so we'll visit then. Hard to believe I've got my 30th high school reunion this summer. Suddenly feeling super old!

Thanks for reading and so sorry you've been sick, you two! Get well super soon! Oh, and we have a door on the packaging room. Weegee is privileged and gets to "help", but the cats only do if they sneak in. Just going to visit with Pat's mom at the care home Sunday. We'll bring Weegee, of course. The book's covers are done for real. I'm having a friend here in town beta read it and then, if she says all is well, I'll submit it to Amazon, get the proof copy, approve and it will be live and published. Take care of yourself! And have a great Easter!

Cute Weegee post :) She clearly is a diva LOL How do you keep the cats off the book packaging counter and "helping" you? :) I was putting together Easter gift bags for all the kids that will come here Sunday and I had to toss wads of tissue paper all over the place to keep thme amused while I filled the bags LOL Wow, you're almost at the end of the road for the book, So excited for you. What hapens next as far as getting it published? Bryan and I have been pretty sick the past couple of weeks and I have not been on much as it was taking all my energy to do RL stuff. We did go to the doc yesterday and got a bunch of meds that should put us right soon. What are your Easter plans?

Hi, S! New blog post if you want to read it: http://booksellingwithweegee.blogspot.com/ How's tricks in your neck of the woods? I have an editor pal reading my manuscript. After making corrections when she spots them, I just have to finalize the cover and the book should be ready to publish.

Hi. I shot the rear cover today, and then I wrote the text for the rear. Designed the text for the front. All just practice, really, since I can't figure out yet how to put it all together. I'm cramming my Photoshop for Dummies book, trying to train myself how to use layers and opacity. Apparently there is a need out there for a book titled Photoshop for Hopeless Dolts. I should know. I'd buy it.

How's the book cover coming along?

Hot Diggity Dog congrats!

Finally done editing! Yay! Now to figure out how to make a book cover. Ugh. Had my sis-in-law do it last time, but she's too busy now. I bought the latest Photoshop -- just have to figure out how to use it with the template for the book cover. Still, so glad to have a finished text!


By jennybookseller on Apr 5, 2014 at 9:38 AM

Ha! Thanks, S! Soooo sleepy! Edited until 11:00, then watched the Michigan State/Virginia game. Turning in at last!

Hi. I was born in Pasco, WA, but we left there for Michigan when I was a year old. My OR family has gone to Mich and to CA, but you never know -- thanx for that sweet invite! And enjoy your visit!


By Sylviag on Mar 28, 2014 at 5:18 PM

Whereabouts in WA? We lived in Olympia for almost 35 years. Dad retired in WA from the Army when I was 17 as it was where he was born i a coal mining town east of the mountains. Even if it doesn't you have put the word son paper and just like a visual artist you gotta do that. If you are ever in Central OR we have a room for you :) Bgcmeworrrr and plaidcts are coming to visit fro a ouple of days on Mon. Bgc has visited before when we were in WA and looking forward to seeing here again and meeting PC

I was born out west, in Washington, and I've visited OR when my brother lived in Roseburg for many years. And the book is for older kids and adults. It's at about 60,000 words. I love it, but I don't know if it will ever see the light of day. Stay tuned!


By Sylviag on Mar 28, 2014 at 2:44 PM

Well, OR has one town called "Boring" which does not commend it to me LOL Is that one adult novel or kid? You really are an over achiever!


By jennybookseller on Mar 28, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Indiana has loads of interesting town names. Including Aroma, which is nearby and which is the setting for another novel I have nearly completed. Not sure if it will be published though.


By Sylviag on Mar 28, 2014 at 2:17 PM

Glad you clarified that - a quick hop to Brazil for an anniversary sounded very jet setting LOL


By jennybookseller on Mar 26, 2014 at 8:37 PM

Brazil. Brazil, Indiana, I should clarify. Just a flea-marketing kind of a trip. Fun!


By Sylviag on Mar 26, 2014 at 8:36 PM

Where did you two go?


By jennybookseller on Mar 26, 2014 at 8:35 PM

Thanks, S! Just home now from a long road-trip to celebrate the anniversary!


By Sylviag on Mar 26, 2014 at 6:27 PM

LOLCat congrats! If I could write off all kittehs we wouldn't have to pay taxes. :)


By jennybookseller on Mar 25, 2014 at 9:09 AM

He's finding my typos, so it's good that he's reading it first.


By Sylviag on Mar 25, 2014 at 9:07 AM

How cool - the rest of us will be looking forward to it not having marriage reading privileges LOL


By jennybookseller on Mar 25, 2014 at 9:04 AM

Thanks, Syl! For our anniversary Pat's reading my book for the first time. The new sequel, I mean.


By Sylviag on Mar 25, 2014 at 8:45 AM

Congrats on 25 years! We celebrated our 36th this year. I can't imagine living with anyone else for sure.
