Good News: It snowed! Seriously, it snowed? I took this at about ten last night when it was just beginning to stick. Fortunately Guy and I are pretty well set for the season. Most of the holiday lights are up. We have a puppy shelter erected for Alex and Xander, the tender plants covered, and a new, industrial grade de-icer in the pond for the fish/birds. The fish seem to really appreciate it. You can see my tiny birdbath/fishpond in this picture if you look close.
Good News! Today is the last day to vote in the Goodreads contest, so if you haven’t picked your faves from each of the categories, you’ve still got some time.. Goodreads best read of 2011
Good News: Every year, Harper Voyager has a special ebook release of one of the back titles for a specially reduced price. This year, they slid an excerpt of A Perfect Blood in there as an bonus. This year’s title is Every Which Way But Dead, so if you have been looking to add to your e-book shelf, and get a sneak peek at A Perfect Blood, here’s your chance.
Bad news? It’s not out yet. But it did pop up on B&N and Amazon as a pre-order, if you can believe it! B andN Pre-Order special edition of EWWBD, Amazon’s Pre-Order special edition of EWWBD I’m sure that a Sony version will be available closer to the release date, so please don’t panic!
Good News: The invoices for Manic Monday’s glow-in-the-dark posters are out, which means I will soon have my kitchen table back as they are shoved into the mail. Tour T-s will start to go out after that, so please be patient with Guy. He’s a little overwhelmed right now. Want a tour-t or freebie?
Bad News: It snowed! The predicted 3-5 inches actually turned out to be 3-5 inches. Go figure. Everything is going to be a slippery mess, even if it is the most gorgous morning I’ve seen in almost a year. Temps are probably going to melt the pretty off and leave the icky. I’m trying to convince Guy to shovel the walk so it will dry instead of ice. But seeing as he’s the one that’s going to do the work, I will probably have to include cookies in the
bribe, ah, negotiations.
Really bad news: I devoted my night last night to helping Guy with getting the first batch of Perfect Blood freebies SASEs out the door, which meant fast food for dinner. I truly love my fast food, mostly because I don’t get it that often, but this? This don’t look nothing like the picture on TV . . . ??! It is so pathetic, I had to show you.
