The Proof is in the...Mailbox.

Get it? Horrible joke, I know. I blame the sweltering heat for my lack of creativity/rationality.

In other news, my author proof of Darkness Surrounding was shipped today. I can already think of a few mistakes off hand, so I may need to undergo the review/proof process one more time so as to submit corrections. We'll see.

Once Darkness Surrounding is available for sale, I will write you all a nice, long post about my experience with CreateSpace. I know that a lot of you are also interested in publishing your novels someday, so I hope that my words of advice will be helpful. Once I've learned my way around the "making money" aspects of the CreateSpace service, I'll report back on that as well.

A picture of a picture of me in Old Town (ABQ). I've got a big nose!

    That happens when I'm trying to write; I finish perfecting an excerpt and the next day I can practically see it bleeding with red ink. XD I'll get my hands on that book one way or another. Did you say something about a Kindle version of Darkness Surrounding on your twitter? I'd be able to use that for sure. I sorry I don't comment on your twitter posts cause I don't have an account, but I'm following you, trust me.

    Oh, and I found a partner for your oversized cornflake. It's a pancaked goldfish.

    Btw, the picture is cool, it's one of those timeless pieces.

    I might release a Kindle version depending on how many people want it. It'll be a few months before I get to that, though.

    And major LOL! That sentence nearly made me choke on my tic tac. There needs to be an Island of Misfits equivalent for misshaped food.
