Mid-Week Update: Goal #1 — Check!!

Hello ROW80 friends. This update is super late, because yesterday was the monthly Indie Life post hosted by the Indelibles.

Big news! I published my fantasy novel Queen Witch, which was my first and largest goal for the winter round. Yippee! Celebrate! *dances nifty little jig*  If you want more info on that, you can go here.

I still need to format the book for paperback and go through that process with CreateSpace. This will be my first paperback, and I’m finding it’s a thrilling and also excruciating thing to ponder. It will be amazing to hold a physical copy of the work I’ve produced. Now to get the formatting right….I’m going to print out a fresh copy of the instructions, instead of the coffee-stained one I printed months ago, and take it with me to Bend this weekend.

LIFE has also been big lately. I’ve been sick all week, for one thing, so hanging on with a WILL. Today is Valentine’s Day, of course, and also a big family gathering to celebrate February birthdays. My sister and her kids are in town (six hour drive) because my niece has a concert here on Saturday, so it works out to get together. Tomorrow is my 33rd birthday, and my brother has kindly offered to take care of my girls even though I have the day off. I might do some shopping, might see a movie, might go for a hike…On Saturday, we go to Bend, Oregon, until Monday. Hubby’s band is playing at a big festival there called Winterfest, so he’s been brushing up on guitar and fixing the cranky theramin. All sorts of raucousness in the Nelson household this week. I’m looking forward to a nice relaxing holiday weekend, it’s just what I need!

Best of luck to all of you in the coming week!

  1. Happy Birthday, J.R.! I can’t wait to see Queen Witch in paperback. The biggest problems I’ve had with formatting is getting the page numbers to work. That’s a big pain. The rest of it is easy. If you have any questions about the process, let me know. I’ve done it several times. 🙂
