After spending last week relaxing (supposedly) on a vacation in northern Michigan, a trip that mostly kept me out of reach of the Internet, I came home to find my inbox overflowing with emails. Took over a day just to clean up that mess. Still, it's good to be back, even if my schedule is a bit hectic these days. I'm beta-reading two different manuscripts, doing a structural edit on a third, helping my wife set up Excel spreadsheets for her new pet sitting business, finished a book review, and still made good progress on my own manuscript. I even commented a couple of times on Facebook--something I'm trying to get better at doing. All in all, a good week by any standard.
Anyway, I'm glad the weekend is almost here. I wouldn't mind sleeping late tomorrow.
Many of this week's links have to do marketing, self-publishing, and formating ebooks on your own. Am I noticing a trend here?
Have a great weekend!
