But not a total bust either. I got 1400+ words on the next Tindiere story (it follows up after Inina’s Blessings of Joy). More importantly, I reworked the template for my POD books and ended up with something I’m happier with. Probably no one else will notice the tweaks but I do so it’s all good.
In the process of that I got the next story to be released (The Hole Inside) almost completely ready for publication. I need to proofread it, of course, and do final fidgety formatting but I could release it next week if I wanted to. The cover’s already done.
I’m… pondering that. I mean, I don’t have covers for any stories after that so that means I’d be waiting another three weeks or so before the next story but… I don’t know. I may release it early and then whomp up a cover for the story after that (Smut, so it could be something really simple, I suppose).
Don’t know yet.
Tomorrow’s my 20th wedding anniversary! We’re planning on going out to see Iron Man 3, then out to dinner. I may buy myself a Kobo Mini. Much as I love my Kindle Fire, if the Kobo Mini allows me to create custom lists and shows non-Kobo purchased books with their covers, it might be a good thing. Besides, it’s only ~$80 plus tax and I still have money left from my Christmas bonus.
Yeah, I know. I’ve been hoarding it, what can I say?
But that’s not for sure. We’ll see what I decide to do tomorrow. For now I’m going to head off to an early bath and early bedtime so that I’m bright and perky for tomorrow.

Pfffffffft, oh, right. the money. I totally forgot. PFFFFFTTTTTTT. and I wonder why I can’t do this for a living - I forget to ask for the pay! *shakes head at self* write to you later, ok? *hugs*
*laughs and hugs you and laughs and hugs you* Sounds good, Neme—I’ll be looking forward to your email! XD

*snaps fingers* DAMN. I’ve just GOT to ask though - you think a close up of the bound hands would be good for them? It’s not that sexual, and it’s more interesting than the cuffs for a viewer/potential customer. I can do that, if you need. *hugs*
*ponders* It’s a thought. But… If it was that much of a closeup it would fill most of the cover and then it would be hard to read the text… *cocks head and ponders some more*
*sigh* I think I’ll stick with the cuffs for the Smashwords cover, Neme. Amazon and the paper book both have the proper one. It’s only Smashwords that’s being stupid. *glares at them*
BTW, I still need to know how much to pay you for this! *grins at you*
It’s also been updated (2 more times) on Smashwords for formatting wonkiness. I’ll put up the formal post for it tomorrow, once (if) I get approval.
For now, that missing hour of sleep has caught up to me so I’m off for a quick bath and bedtime. I just wanted to let the Kindle readers on my dash know that Obedience is available at last. :)
