many thinks to do

Couldn’t get comfortable enough to write on the train yesterday, so I haven’t reached 70K on the book, but that’s okay. We had an utterly splendid weekend in Cork and are very glad indeed to have gone.

I will no doubt be posting fairly regular reminders over the course of the month about the “Hot Time” sale, but if any of my myriad friends and … well, I was going to say “coworkers”, except my life generally doesn’t work that way, so my myriad friends, then! If any of you want to post links from your respective journals and FB and Twitter accounts, well, I would be grateful. (In fact, I got a bunch of RTs on Twitter last night, and I *am* grateful! Thank you very, very much!)

I am in an unexpectedly good mood this morning. I have *tons* to do today (or we have tons to do, but whether it’s I or we, there’s a lot of it!) and virtually none of it’s writing, but I’m feeling quite chipper and enthusiastic anyway.

*charges off to do thinks*!

- finish DEMON HUNTS AAs
- laundry
- shop
- bring glass to the recycling place
- make bread
- empty all the small garbages into the big one and then empty it
- ideally finish chapter 26 of WAYFINDER

“Hot Time” update:

Please note!: You will need to click the “return to merchant” button in order to be brought to the download page, once you’ve bought your copy of “Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight”! Having not actually bought a copy myself, I didn’t realize that would be part of the process and so I didn’t know to mention it. Sorry for any inconvenience, and if you’ve bought but not received it, please email me (cemurphyauthor@gmail.com) and I’ll email you your copy!

done & dusted

DEMON HUNTS galleys are finished and submitted. Now the question is whether to toss the manuscript or bring it to P-Con for the auction. (*looks at natural20* :))

That’s officially the end of the Five Year Plan, which was all about getting as many books on the shelves over a five year period as I could. DEMON HUNTS will be out June 1st, five years to the day after URBAN SHAMAN. 10 CE Murphy books, 3 Cate Dermody books, a scattered handful of short stories & novellas, and a five-issue comic series between June 1, 2005 and June 1, 2010. I’m a little hornswoggled by that.

Tomorrow: do the SPIRIT DANCES art fact sheet and finish chapter 26 of WAYFINDER, plus any other sundries which need getting out of the way so I can hit the keyboard running (to badly mix my metaphors) on Thursday.

Feb 01: DEMON HUNTS AAs due
Feb 05: SPIRIT DANCES art fact sheet
Feb 19: WAYFINDER due
Jun 30: New book proposals due

The Road Home: miles to Isengard: 100.6
