I’ve been doing some major revisions on an historical novel for many weeks now (seems like forever). But this weekend, I had to stop revising in order to proof typeset pages for my contemporary Women of Faith novel that releases in March. I finished proofing the pages this afternoon, made copies of the 26 pages that had corrections/changes, logged onto my FedEx account and completed a shipping form, slipped the pages into the envelope, and drove it over to the nearby FedEx drop off location. In another hour or so, that envelope will begin its two day trek from Boise, Idaho to Nashville, Tennessee.
Ah…. Feels so good to reach this point. Next time I see A Perfect Life will be when my author copies arrive on my doorstep. I am still waiting to see the final cover treatment.
I was rather looking forward to an evening of vegging in front of the TV while watching Dancing with the Stars (will Marie Osmond faint again?). Then my #1 daughter called. She couldn’t get on an early flight from Salt Lake to Boise, and so she needs me to pick up #1 granddaughter at volleyball tryouts while my son-in-law is with #2 grandson at his soccer practice. So I’ve now printed off the Google directions from my house to the tryout location. So much for vegging! A huge athletic building filled with teenage girls is a little noisier than what I had in mind. LOL! But it’s worth it to be with one of my grandkids. They’re just the best.
