Next, I realize I have a 1:30 appt for local Fox radio and am wondering if I'll be done in time to pick up my son across town at 2:30 from school. I'll make it work. I have to. I have 2 books sitting on my counter to be mailed to contest winners. I mailed out 10 yesterday. Shoot, I forgot to write my miles down to and from the post office, they're a write-off (if I can actually remember to keep track of them!)
After writing this post, I have to call Atlanta and speak to a bookstore owner about changing dates of an upcoming signing. We didn't finalize anything and in the meantime a bookclub leader asked to come meet with her group later in the month. I said yes.
After that, I need to follow up on a call to a Nashville bookstore about a signing I was hoping to do there in April.

Just remembered that I told Books a Million I'd bring them signage for my upcoming Saturday signing. They normally are good about providing it but they're going out of business sometime after my signing so I'm sure they have bigger things on their mind.
I need to go check that the local newspaper has a mention in their community events section. Probably not because I did remember to submit it to their blog, but not to the actual paper. Ug. Write that down.
Email from aspiring writer's friend asking me to mentor him.
I also need to follow up with a local news reporter who asked for my bio and other stuff for his interview with me next week on the morning news (I have to be there at 7:30 in the morning, about the same time my son needs to be at school... I'll worry about that later).
Being featured on the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance this week, I have to do a google search of who posted today so I can go to the blogs and thank them.
Shoot, I'm supposed to update the Novel Rocket Team's books on that sidebar widget thingie. I lost my password ... again.
Come to think of it, I never heard back from a somewhat local Indie store that I'd sent my book to. I wonder if they're going to carry it now. I should just schedule a signing with them and then I know they'll have it. Note to self: call them this morning.
Hey, I woke up but didn't pray or read my Bible. As soon as this post is done, do that.
2 novelists emailed and asked if I would endorse their next book. One is under contract, the other not. I love them both, so I will try.
Why are the dogs whining? Apparently they want to be fed.
Email from aspiring writers mother, asking me if I would mentor her daughter.
I guess at some point today I should work on book 4. I handed it in a few weeks ago and was given 5 single-spaced pages of editorial "suggestions". That book is due in about a month and a half or so.
