Newsflash: I’ve grossly underestimated the time it would take me to get Stones and Finger Bones ready to send out into the world. Anyone surprised? No? I’m definitely not. Ugh.
The good news is that I have a delicious brunch scheduled for Sunday to meet with my final reader to gather up her thoughts and edits. And I’m working on scheduling a final pass with a proofreader (after I take one more look at the ms).
I’m throwing around the word “final” in the hopes that it motivates me to hit a final deadline. *fingers crossed*
In other exciting news – just in case you missed it – I’m officially a homeowner! I closed on my condo about 2 weeks ago, and while this is very exciting and adult, it’s also taking quite a bit of time away from doing anything else. Like writing. Or blogging. The fact that I don’t have internet at home isn’t helping, either. I’m typing this post on my phone.
Ever try writing a blog post on a phone? Bugger.
my front door!
Anywho, that’s about all my little thumbs can manage for today, I just wanted to keep y’all updated!
P.S. Cover reveal coming soon! If anyone is interested in helping me with the reveal (I would love you forever!) send me an email at jessicaminyardbooks @ gmail (dot) com. Or message me on Twitter or Facebook. Or leave a comment and I’ll contact you!
I still have to finalize the back cover copy, but I just wanted to go ahead and start asking for minions. 😉

I am just as easy of gross underestimating as well. I had thought what I sent to my copy editor was almost ready for prime time. Silly me. Congratulations on the new home! And yes, I have written a post on my phone. If you see an article that is around 200 words or less – that would be the reason why.
I think the underestimation comes from being such a noob. It’s hard to make schedules for things you’ve never done before!
Haha. I’ll be on the lookout for those posts…and sympathize with your pain. 🙂
Nice post! I’ve just emailed you re your cover reveal. Congrats on owning your own home – it’s a great feeling, isn’t it? 🙂
And I know exactly how you feel when it comes to editing. I’m on that journey right now!
It is a great feeling…if also a bit overwhelming. All this being an adult business is hard work. 🙂
I couldn’t agree more! 😉
