Where does the time go? I'll be damned if I know...
Today is October 1st and, as I write this, it isn't even the morning of the 1st. It's already prime time (heh, remember prime time? It's when people used to tune into whatever programming the networks were showing, before the days of what-you-want-when-and-where-you-want-it.)
And you know what October means? My editor at McGraw-Hill is expecting to see the manuscript for my book before the month is out. Well, not so much is as was. Dudes and dudettes, let me tell you -- writing a book is hard work. Harder still when you're trying to balance it with a super busy day job and even a teeny tiny bit of a personal life. Hint hint: this is also why you haven't seen too many posts on this blog over the course of the past month.
So if the title of this post and my lame attempt at foreshadowing in the previous paragraph weren't enough to tip you off, I'm way behind schedule and won't make my original October deadline. Thanks to a super cooperative team at McGraw and an assist from my agent, I've bought myself another couple of months. I'll be working through the end of the year, delivering the manuscript piece-by-piece leading up to New Year's Eve. In return, I'm aiming to make it badder (in a good way) and better (also in a good way.)
We're still looking at a summer 2010 release date. Pray for me. Oh. And don't forget to join the microMARKETING mailing list for occasional updates, on-sale info and more.
