Book Release Day Recap: Sex & Violence

So, that was yesterday. It was a nice day for me. I did, as Blythe Woolston might say, squat-all.

Well. Not entirely true. I finished re-watching season 3 of The Walking Dead, so now I’m all primed and in the mood for season 4 on October 13. Gotta be prepared, you guys.

I also ordered launch party cupcakes (psst…yr invited!), washed and hung laundry on the line, cleaned the kitchen, scrubbed the bathroom sink, read fan fiction, chatted with a friend who’s been furloughed by our stupid-ass government shutting down, harvested a heinie-load of vegetables from the garden, talked to my dog, dorked around on Twitter, started reading the latest Victoria Dahl novel, viewed 476 million Norman Reedus photos and chatted with my in-laws. Also, waited for a new furnace to be delivered (which was not delivered…grrr…)

I’m sure I wasted an hour or two on Tumblr, as well. Full day, really.

Oh, and did a tiny bit of revision on Book #2 AKA Perfectly Good White Boy.

Lots of really nice people have helped get the word out for Sex & Violence. I need to make a list. It’s gonna be a long list. I’m really thankful for friends and readers and other authors who have posted kind reviews or Tweets on this book’s behalf.

I think the nicest thing about getting a book published so far has been the people I have met. They are so generous and so much fun to know.

Another thing that happened today is that the camper that was parked in my front yard (since August, when our remodeling began) left today. Our neighbors gave us shit: “Where did Unit B go? How sad! We don’t get a turn with it?” So now our house looks like a construction zone minus the squatters, I guess. Not a ton better, but at least we can see across the street again.

We still don’t have walls or a furnace and the roof remains undone, which is giving the mister some consternation. These things are above my pay grade, however, so I’m focusing on keeping us all fed and clothed and not losing my mind when Matilda dithers over distractions instead of her dumb homework.

I don’t know what else to say.

Oh wait! I’m doing another GoodReads giveaway (which includes Canada & the UK this time around.)

Okay, now I’m done.
