The Proofread is Done!

Sometimes I wish every day was Monday. After taking Sunday off, I have so much more energy than on other days of the week. I also don't usually have any appointments or any reason to leave my apartment to go anywhere. Well, at least not anywhere farther than the laundry room.

So today I finished proofreading Double Pink Murder! I wasn't sure I could do it because I still had ten chapters left and, as I've reported here before, often one chapter will require a lot of time to get right. But despite needing to check the Chicago Manual of Style and Googling punctuation rules and digging into my thesaurus again for one particularly obstinate chapter, I was able to get through them all.

I also did some administrative things, like downloading my sales data and renewing my business name registration with the state of Arizona.

And I spent a couple of hours going through the videos of a course on Amazon advertising. This course took a slightly different approach as to how to create and use Amazon ads, and it's got me eager to try these techniques.

To wrap up the day, the Red Sox won after being behind for most of the game. Another Yay!

Tomorrow is Tuesday, with a lot of non-author tasks to accomplish, so I don't expect to blog tomorrow. But this week is off to a good start.
