Hope everyone had a great day with kin and kindred alike.
The next few days should be interesting. Wednesday's interview for promotion is the next time I am scheduled for work, so during my free time I will be wrapping up the most final edits and then moving forward with the rest of T7H.
'Moving forward' should include paperback publishing and review by what I would call a VIP. I'm a little excited by the potential outcome of this next phase. T7H has been pretty well received thus far, so here's hoping that a professional review will serve as a more definitive reason to believe that I might actually be able to write. Once that is complete, I plan to go into marketing, contests, and whatever else I can manage. Not to mention that I'm going to begin writing The Harbinger in full force. If my promotion goes through, it will seriously eat into my writing time, but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
On another note, I'm considering moving this blog o' mine to an actual namesake. The heightened traffic I've been receiving leads me to believe that I can only achieve greater heights by making myself accessible to a wider audience. http://jsickels3.blogspot.com will still take you here if you are bookmarked or what have you, but I think this upgrade might be in order. It sounds narcissistic to me, but I think JamesSickels.com is probably the best option. It's unfortunate my last name is easily misspelled and that 'ss' combo in there really bothers me - but oh well.
Wish me luck as I wish you a happy rest of your holiday.
