Comment about Sunday: Yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday, and although I lobbied hard for the Cardinals, and thought for a brief moment that they might "win it all," it simply wasn't meant to be.
Present: Today was a time to stop and take stock on what I've accomplished during the month of January in the promoting and marketing of my first book, "Guardian" (May, 2009, 4RV Publishing). It began with the creation of this blog, and making Monday through Friday posts. It also involved creating a presence on Twitter and Facebook; I got professional pictures made, and sent a few ARCs (pdf version) out to trusted readers.
I also aided a fellow author at her book signing at a local book store. That was fun, and I learned a lot from her. I received back two reviews of my book, and I'm pleased to say they were favorable. I was excited to see how the book hit other authors. Additionally, I did research and created a couple of courses to possibly be taught at a book festival in October.
Somewhere in there, I did some more research for an upcoming book, filed our taxes (yes, I know, most of you haven't even thought of them yet), and worked on creating a business card. And, finally, a friend made a book trailer for me that I'd love for you all to take a look at my YouTube Video and let me know what you think!
