It’s Friday! Yay!!
So we have the estimate on the floors and I’m not going to get everything I want, which is not a surprise. Wizard was almost exactly right in his calculations as usual. I did have to laugh through — we are arranging our start date around…wait for it…a visit from Bailey Dog.
He’s coming to stay with us for a week in March, and we don’t want his fun disrupted, so we are putting off the start of doing the floors until after his visit. That’s not weird, right? Okay go ahead and laugh, it’s pretty funny.
So I wanted to tell you guys who we have lined up for Business Mondays so far.
Monday February 29th is Silver James talking about juggling several projects at once. I’m amazed at how she does this! I can’t wait to see her blog, and hope some of her magic rubs off on me.
Monday March 7th, MJ Rose, the founder of AuthorBuzz and co-founder with Liz Berry of 1,001 Dark Nights Marketing Group is doing a kick ass blog on Marketing & Publicity Tips. I’ve read this blog and you don’t want to miss it!
Monday March 21st, New York Times Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan is doing a fabulous blog on Writing Sprints. Carrie and I talked a tiny bit about this on FB messaging one day and I was really interested. Her blog is full of great tips.
Those are the ones that I have finalized. I’m reaching out slowly, seeking authors and professionals that I think we can all learn something from. I want to thank all of them for the amazingly positive response so far! I will send out more inquiries soon.
This weekend I’m working and cleaning, nothing really exciting for me. How about you all? Any exciting plans? Whatever you’re doing, have a great weekend!

Yay, Bailey! And no, it’s not weird. You’d plan around a visit from a grandkid, why not a grandpup? I can’t wait for your guest posts. They sound awesome. =o)
I’m on the deadline timebomb clock. Everything has to be done by next Friday in order to have this up for pre-order with a 10-day lead time like Amazon prefers. (I’ve done fewer days, but I’d rather not push my luck.) So, this means finalizing my editor’s notes, proofreading again, formatting… :collapses: I can do this. But there goes my weekend. I might take a walk to clear my head from time to time. Or do housework to get away from the desk. Definitely my exercise thing. Not much else, though.

I totally understand about the scheduling. Because…BAILEY DOG! *nods*
Aaannnddd…speaking of multiple projects, that post is next on my to-do list today. No, really. Promise! It’s that whole deadline thing!
And I’m getting off the internet now… *poof*

B.E., I bet you’re feeling the pressure! You can do it, but it’s a ton of work. Hang in there and definitely take walks if you can!

Silver, as long as I have it by Sunday morning, I’m good here. But I know how it is…we think we have so much time to do something, then suddenly…we don’t. I can’t wait to see it!
I still think it’s pretty funny we’re planning our lives around Bailey But it’d be stressful for him and us with all the commotion.
