First up: Many thanks to those of you who passed around the link to yesterday’s GET IT OUT OF MY STORAGE AREA book sale – and many thanks also to those of you who bought books, of course! I got rid of pretty much everything I meant to sell – by which I mean, I unloaded three full boxes of miscellaneous books upon you fine people. And those are three boxes I do not have to carry to Tennessee. So when I say “thanks,” I really mean it.
Also, I think I probably raised enough money to pay for our hotel stays on the cross-country drive. So there’s some gravy, yeah.
So I’m calling that sale a success, and calling it finished. Please no more requests for books. There are no more books for sale at this time. My apologies if you missed it.
Everyone who completed the paypal instructions: Your books are either in the mail, or going into the mail tomorrow. Those of you dibbed books but did not pay (only a couple of people – no big deal), your books are going back into my personal stash. Sorry.
Next in the queue: Here’s recent progress on my comic/sci-fi young adult project where a girl becomes a ninja and fights aliens with much ass-kicking and many LOLs but not a whole lot of kissing (or any kissing, to be frank) plus BONUS Bruce Lee’s ghost, a vintage Thunderbird, zenlightenment on the fly, and fat stacks of Cool Ranch Doritos.

Things accomplished in fiction: Formulated A Plan. Picked nose in front of a poorly hidden camera to entertain self while men in an unmarked van went, “Ew.”
Things accomplished in real life: Went to post office three times because hot damn, that was a lot of books to mail; did laundry; cleaned house a bit; dealt with plumber (rather briefly); spent my lunch hour with my (out-of-town) friend’s cat; went to Walgreens; cleaned out storage area downstairs; got inbox down to zero, though now it’s not zero anymore, so oh well.
