Chugging along...

The formation of my own company is chugging along at a snails' pace, a snail that's stuck in molasses when its 30 degrees out. (for non-mountain folk...that's SLOW).

The process itself appears quite simple, but it is misleadingly so. After spending over $40 on postage to let my neighbors know I'm starting a HOME business (which is overkill to me, but I abide by the law)...now I await a meeting, then to actually file for the license itself.

That's the somewhat easy part...the hard parts are to put together a legal and bindable contract for my new authors, and to find a website provider. Any suggestions on these would be most welcome.

In the meantime, work is boring as ever, but I believe it will end around Halloween...be hitting the job hunt trail very hard at that point. Searching for a job is ridiculous in itself; and very, very hard.

Other than that, got to see my family this weekend; albeit for a brief time. It was nice though! I will see them on Friday evening, have to shoot pool sometime! :)

Summer is winding down at last, and despite the temperatures...I am feeling it, esp in my commute. Traffic volume nearly doubled last Monday...I guess a lot of districts opened their doors at that time...I surely saw it. Not a fan of driving, traffic, parking, the lot. I'd rather beam into work...never be late again.

Almost time for bed here...another enthralling week of mind-numbing work just for $$$, then to come home and work on my passion...writing. (after studying for my exam, that is.)

Good night!!

Relief at last...

Hello all! Well...the heat has finally broken (no longer at the century mark)....but it's still hot on the ranch at Sid and Roger's in Ranch Hands...the new cover has made a huge difference, and I'm thrilled to death it's back on the market...it was missed by everyone!
Speaking of Sid, Roger, and let's not forget Jerry...the sequel is coming later this year. Jerry struck me so much he needed his own story....with all the complications I add in just for him. :)

My company is coming together in bits and pieces...I have yet to mail our P & Z items, but have my tax and state items together. It's a slow process....still need website and contract too...Suggestions are VERY welcome!

In other news...my bud Julie Hayes and I just subbed our 1st part of a book we named "Finding His Mark" to Silver! Wish us luck! We're already on book #2!

And last but not least...is My Fair Vampire which comes out from Silver in October. Can't wait for you to meet William and Misha and read their adventure based at the time of the St Louis Worlds Fair in 1904!
