Well, today was the second day of my “being a full time publisher”.
It’s in inverted commas for now cause I’m not quite at full steam. You see, I’m starting my PhD at the end of the month. And I ended up finishing up my work contract two weeks early to sort a few things out. So whilst I’m doing that, I’m also kind of taking a bit of a rest before starting my new gig. A vacation of sorts. Oh who am I kidding! I was planning on spending all day every day catching up on all things Twelfth Planet Press.
Yesterday, I did pretty well. I got up at normal working hours and threw myself into work and I stopped at about 4.30/5pm. I really churned through the emails and progressed a few things that had been stalling. And I also did laundry and cleaned out some of my closet. Ahem.
Today the day was not so much attacked as survived. And I might call that a win still. Much less was achieved and that was mostly due to my computer playing up. I see now that after finally starting to clear space on it, it hasn’t played up in hours. But it took quite some time to pinpoint the issues.
However, things *have* moved along. The ebook format for ASYMMETRY, vol 8 of the Twelve Planets went out to ebook subscribers last night and should be available for purchase on our website later tonight. And other awesome online retailers later in the week.
And tomorrow, I shall pick up the printed copies of A TRIFLE DEAD and send those out to preorders, my car battery be willing.
Other than that, I’m very scattered and hard to focus. I’ve started reading 2312, starting listening to The Drowning Girl, knit one mitten in the flamingo pattern and started one mitten with beer glasses on it. That kind of thing.
But, my plan is to pick up blogging regularly again now that I have the time and now that I feel like I have freedom to read more widely and think more creatively. We shall see. We shall see.
