Thursday Stuff

Well, it's been pretty much decided that The Plight of the Coral Horn will remain The Plight of the Coral Horn. Unless I have some kind of brilliant stroke of last minute inspiration, I will go to press with that title. I'm only one polish away from reaching that point, although I may hold off publishing till next week. It's only been six days since my last story hit the kindle, and I don't want to do this too fast.

I'm also back in the marketing end of things. I just bought an ad that will appear in email of kindle owners, hopefully sometime this fall. We'll see how that goes. I'm also going to prep an old story of mine, Storm Chase, and submit it to an online horror magazine. It doesn't pay anything, but I'm looking for the exposure, and the chance to direct people to either my blog or my bibliography page on

It's all very mercantile and capitalistic.

On another front, there's only two days of summer left. Tomorrow is meet the teacher day at Rowan's school. She will have the same teacher as last year so there aren't going to be any surprises on that front. Miss Toni is well aware of what to expect from Little Miss Rowan, and hopefully will have her back on the straight and narrow in little time.

Then on Friday we meet Sheridan's teacher. I wonder if we ought to just start apologizing right from the get go. Cover our bases, so to speak. I can tell Sheridan is beginning to get a little tense about starting this new school, but I'm trying to keep him calm as possible about it. He's never been in a class bigger than three or four kids, and now he's jumping into public school. I know he'll adapt, but I feel sorry for the little guy. I know he'll be scared.

Oh well, lets hope for the best.

  1. He is a Hilliard. OF COURSE you should start apologizing from the get-go. LOL. I owe every one of Courtney's teachers an apology and a free Valium prescription! That includes all prior and future college professors she encounters.
