This week has been sort of peak "what nice problems to have @_____@ oh god @______@"Saturday:
received last edit pass on The Omega's Pack
and also the second-round edits on the forthcoming gay Catholic vampire novel I sold to Less Than Three Press in June. Elected to focus on the really urgent priority.Sunday:
spent the day doing last edits/proofread/formatting/etc and then published my new gay werewolf book!The Omega's Pack, by Dessa Lux
! This is the sequel to The Omega's Bodyguard
, and wound up being twice as long (62,000 words) but I eventually got to paying off the promised full moon heat gangbang! :D Monday:
in between obsessively tracking sales of The Omega's Pack
and a weird, stupid paperwork fuckup at work to which the phrase "or your employment will be suspended" was attached (it seems to be fine, but not the calmest Monday), finally read edit letter. Scream a bit about the scale of edits being requested in the second round.
Celebrate launch of gay werewolf book by going to dinner at Hamburger Mary's, where I score the server whose customer service persona is Your Sassy Gay Friend. He calls me 'girl
' every time he speaks to me and it's delightful. Possibly he is bored. I am his only table.Tuesday:
Get back edits on overdue birthday fic and spend the day editing and getting ready to post:Prima Nocta

is today! and I have a shit ton of writing to do on the thing I promised would be done on Friday. @__________@ And the meme fill that's been dangling two-thirds finished for weeks. And YULETIDE. OH GOD. AND MARVEL POLYDAYS.
WHAT HAVE I DONE. @__________________________@ETA:
OH HAHA RIGHT NOW I REMEMBER. Today I found the article where I'm quoted on the Mary Sue!
(I knew this was going to happen, I just didn't know it was happening this week.) And created a commenting account just to apologize to the guy in the comments who said, "Hey, a friend of mine writes Transformers porn and it's really well-written!" I am sort of tempted to post the entire text of the email I sent to the author of the article, because I really liked the point I made at short-essay length better. *g*
Anyway: an extra dose of @____________________________________@ for my week.
