This is why I take on blogging challenges such as Holidailies. Otherwise, as you can see, I find reasons to put off blogging and then, before I know it, a week has gone by since my last post. Sheesh.

Anyway, proofs are done and turned back in. I ended up sending back 52 pages that needed things fixed, though only nine of those pages had changes of my own. It was cool reading the book in actual “book” form, and now I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it has an actual cover!

Speaking of covers, I have cover flats! (I would post a scan of one, but my scanner is out in my office, which I haven’t been to in a few days because it is frickin’ COLD out there. However, I will make the trek out there today so that I can scan my cover flat in all its beauteousness!)

I’m also dissatisfied with the layout of my website, and am musing on a redesign. I’m usually competent enough at that sort of thing that I can handle it on my own, but there are a few features that I want to incorporate that may require the intervention of someone who knows WTF they’re doing.

Otherwise, work continues on the thriller/police procedural, and I’m finally at the point where I can see that mysterious thing known as the “end,” which is a good thing since I’m at the point where I’m more than ready to be done with this thing, at least for a while.
