Not much from me today. I hope you're not in a hurry because I can't type fast and you don't want to know what I'm using to whack the spacebar. It's natural, when falling, to put your hand out to try to stop yourself but when you're trying to make a living writing that's not such a good idea.
Nothing is broken but I have a wrist strapped so tight it'll probably be thinner than the other one when the bandage comes off. I'll look like a hermit crab.
Being in no state to do any sort of house maintenance, I have been doing something else I had to get dealt with, which was putting the ghosthunting book on publisher sites. This involved more mousing than typing but it still took most of the day. It is now on Lulu as paperback and for those with more money than sense there's even a hardback version. I doubt anyone will pay Lulu price for hardback but it cost nothing to put it there. Don't get a hardback unless you really must have one. I don't make any more from that than I do from the paperback.
Ebooks are available as EPUB on Lulu and in lots of formats on Smashwords. It'll be on the Amazon Kindle site in a day or so and should appear on the Barnes and Noble, Apple, Sony and Kobo sites over the coming weeks. Here's the cheery summertime cover:
I'll update the Romulus blog after a bit of wrist resting. I also have an increasing backlog of Emails - apologies to those waiting for a response, I'm not ignoring you. Likewise all those comments on the last post - thanks for the sympathy and I'll get to them when the rest of my fingers grow back.
Looks like I put this book out just in time. There is a disturbance in the Force - actually, going by my current appearance that should read "A disturbance in the Force there is." At least I'm not green although the way things are going I shouldn't tempt Fate.
I didn't like that carpet anyway. It wasn't as bad as I thought. All I have to change is the small amount of carpet in the downstairs hallway and I bet I can cover that little bit of floor with an offcut or an end-of-roll piece. Fortunately I will not have to attempt to fit a stair carpet because I don't think the stairs like me.
Well, it's wrist rest time again. I'll try soaking it with whisky from the inside.
Luckily it's not my favourite one.
