Life can be very random sometimes. I always seem to find that I get offers for book deals when I least expect them. In that vein, I am so happy that Sara and I will be working with Kelly Loughman from Holiday House on Sara's book, UNNATURAL SELECTION. I am looking forward to hammering out the contract and getting all the other big details figured out!
It is one one a very long list of things to do. I'm not necessarily a conspiracy theorist, but I firmly believe that all my authors secretly get together and pre-determine specific weeks when they will all send me their revisions at once. Individually, I am very excited to see the changes made to their books, but when I get six or eight emails in a row with new versions attached, I admit, I start to panic and say, "Go away! Go away!" ::makes shooing motion with hands::
I am taking a leaf out of the restaurant bar's policy to handle the chaos: first-come, first-served. So, my lovely authors, don't get too antsy if you notice it's taking me longer than normal to get back to you. You just have a spot farther back in the queue!
And finally, something non-book related: I'm not sure exactly how this came about, but I have a tattoo!
I take that back - I do know how it came about, I wasn't drugged and kidnapped by tattoo artists, but I'm surprised at myself for going for it so sporadically. As my close friends know, I've half-heartedly considered getting some kind of tattoo for the past decade but never done it (kind of the same deal with my ears, except that they're still un-pierced). Well, I got in a really tattoo-y mood over the weekend, thought of a design on Friday, booked a consultation at Kings Avenue Tattoo on Saturday, and got it done on Tuesday! I feel so wild!
