Today has been a really good day. I will admit that i got very little done in the way of exercising. I kind of knew I wasn’t going to though so I am okay with that. I’ve been watching my calories though so I think I should be fine.
A while ago I released a book called Cursed. It is a twisted fairytale of sorts, a new version of sleeping beauty where the Princess discovers she has magic of her own and not all godmothers are to be trusted. It was amazingly fun to write and it has actually begun a new series of books for me. I’m currently working on the second book and absolutely adore my main characters.
But that’s not the point.
I entered the book in an Amazon Contest which required me to only have my book available on Amazon for a certain duration. That duration has finally ended (yesterday actually). So today I completed the formatting adjustments needed and the book is now available on Smashwords. Smashwords lets the e-book be formatted for any type of e-reader and not just Kindle which I like (although it is formatted for kindle there as well). It also lets you purchase the e-book in a text format if you just read it on your computer so you don’t technically have to own an e-reader at all to read it. Plus, smashwords really supports independent authors so I am always happy to have my books there. It is still available on Amazon of course as well. It’s just no longer ONLY on Amazon.
Anyway the formatting is complete and the book is now available on Smashwords. All of these links will take you to the book. In a few days it will be available in sites like Barnes & Noble, but now you can actually download it from Smashwords.
So everybody mambo!
Okay, I am not only glad it is released, but that my day of formatting has been completed. Now I get to spend the rest of my day doing something other than double checking formatting. Woo Hoo!
And there is quite a lot to do as the formatting took longer than expected. I know it is more of a life update than a fitness one and tomorrow I will catch up on my walks and throw myself into my workouts to make up for it. Today I am going to take a moment to revel in the end of my day of formatting and then I am going to dive into all the other things I put off to the side in order to do the formatting. But as today was the only day without any conference calls,it mostly involves sorting e-mails and responding to messages I pretended not to see this morning.
But first there will ba a dance around the office to celebrate, then it is back to work. So for now, everybody mambo!
