I created a huge, beautiful spreadsheet detailing everything I need to do to successfully launch my book by October 8. The only thing I couldn’t come up with? A topic for this week’s blog post. So just a few Quick Takes in the mean time.
First, know that the NIGHT OF DESTRUCTION was just as epic as we anticipated. A Crown Victoria dominated in the first round so now I want us to trade in our Corolla for a car that can take repeated hits and keep destroying everything in its way. I’m also thinking it would be great if someone could build a power wheelchair as durable as a Crown Victoria.
We celebrated Labor Day by HAVING A REGULAR SCHOOL DAY. Mwahahahaha! Tony was off work, Byron didn’t have classes, and Addie was off so we got in a video chat. Tony also grilled ribs so that made the day a bit more special than usual.
On Wednesday, Byron passed his road test, so now I have another driver. He was working on parallel parking non-stop the last few weeks, and even the test administer was impressed. I know I wasn’t as nervous as Byron was, but my stomach was in knots during the whole ten minute test. These teen milestones are wonderful and utterly ulcer inducing. Edie turns 16 in December and the process will start again….sigh.
I’m finalizing some preorder goodies, working on scheduling a few live online events, compiling items for a giveaway, and planning a special signing event. Details will go out to the newsletter first; sign up here so you don’t miss out!
Not much else to report! I’ve got four baskets of laundry to put away, school work to grade, and a to do list that only grew during the week despite crossing off several items. Need something else to read? Order my book on Kindle!!! You can also write down your own Takes and link them up below. Be sure to include a link back to this post so your readers can find the rest of the Quick Takes. I look forward to reading your posts!
