An End And A Beginning

The Great Goodreads Giveaway is over–952 entrants. Not too shabby, eh? The books have gone out, and the winners should be receiving them soon (some may have already). I had the bright idea of letting CreateSpace handle the shipping. I really didn’t feel like hauling all those boxes to the Post Office. Anyway, it worked. Sending them to the US winners via CreateSpace was only about 30 cents more than sending them media mail through the Post Office. And international shipment–whoo! Now that was cheap! $4.99 to England? Dang! And there were a fair number of those. The most expensive one was to Australia, but that was to be expected. Besides, there was only one.

So I converted the .pdf of The Underground to Word. What a CHORE! It’s beyond belief that someone hasn’t come up with a program that’ll convert without totally messing up the formatting. But it’s done, and I’m working on it. I’ve written one new chapter so far, on the elves. There’ll be others, too.

Monday I’m talking with the marketing expert. It’ll be interesting to hear what he has to say. And then I’m going to spend  the $5-600 bucks for their 2-year marketing package. *sigh* Mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money! Oh, well. At least it’s tax deductible.

That’s all I have for today. Tune in in a couple of days for more news of my incredibly exciting life!
