Well, I woke up with a better attitude today. Since I can't change the fact that I have to pay this money back before I can leave Maine, I'm just going to focus on the things that I can do while I'm here. Last night I thought of a whole new Firma novel, which I actually can't tackle for awhile since I've promised to write a lesbian series after this trilogy. Still, I'll get the ideas on my trusty computer so they'll be there when I'm ready. I also took a couple days off from book two, but now I'm ready to get back to work.
On the publicity seeking front, I sent copies of OQ to Whoopi Goldberg, to The Advocate and to two online gay bookstores today. I'm running really low on promo copies, so I'm picking and choosing my recipients very carefully now. Let's hope I strike paydirt with one of these.
It's a sunny day and a new week. Yes it still sucks to be in Maine, but hey, I've got my books to write, my trusty cat Raja and all my fantabulous peeps out there to lift my spirits and keep me busy. Life could really be a heck of a lot worse.
