Too Busy to Blog?

I have found myself very busy over the last few weeks - but that shouldn't be a reason not to blog. There are plenty of things to talk about, and blogging should be a priority. That said, it probably won't be...

The book, currently in manuscript form has returned from its editorial review from the publisher. There were some minor issues that I have addressed per their instructions and generally I was pleased with their feedback and constructive critism. I need to rework the first chapter a bit still, and I have requested a 2 week extension to polish the book up and get it to a proofreader, but still hoping to have it out by x-mas for purchase in Amazon and Barnes and Noble at the very least. Additional distribution may wait until January 2006.

My buddy Nick has updated the look of my Website in preparation for the launch of Confessions of an Introvert. It is reletively minor in appearance change, but the code is much cleaner. Nick put in a decent amount of time, and I appreciate his hard work on that.

I need to get some SEO research done for a prospect and do some writing/rewriting before I check out for the night. - until later...

Under the deadline - Friday

Friday was quite an interesting day, starting with a wine tasting at BNI, by Eric Amberg of Amberg Winery - a decent way to start the day. Followed by a meeting in Victor, where I left with two signed contracts for development. A quick drive home to relieve the husand of the baby while he took a business card and I finished packing. Then we took a trip to the airport, dealt with the delays and other joys or air travel with a toddler and arrived late in St. Louis. Had dinner with the parents, ran back to the hotel to hook into the wireless internet and send the manuscript and artwork for the book. Had it in by midnight, right on time, and right before the power supply died.

Spent next couple days doing family stuff. Happy the book is in, nervous that it isnt perfect.

Got notice that the pulisher has it in editorial review.

Ordered new power supply (still under warrenty)

busy week, and it is only Monday.

More info to follow as it is available.
