I have a day off. Imagine that. I was set to work everyday this week, but fate shines on me saying, take a break.
I got things squared away with Amazon; should see RUSH #00 and #1 on sale there soon – the price is a little higher then what Dramaqueen is offering at their site, mainly because of Amazon’s take. In terms of RUSH, the wind is a little out of my sails because everything we planned for RUSH during our meeting in Houston, has been implemented by another publisher for their anthology – and it’s seems to be all the rage. Hopefully, by the time July rolls round and I talk about the new format and such – people will care enough to realize that we’re not ‘doing what everyone else is’; I still get irked that people forget RUSH was the ‘first’ GloBL anthology – no we weren’t a phonebook anthy – but we were the first. No we’re going to look like imitators. >_< Oh well. I still think we’re going to rock, and can’t wait for 2011.
I’m currently cleaning up a plot for a novel that c.b. Potts and I will be working on this summer. I’ve got some valid feedback on the bare bones and am making some serious changes to the main character.
I caught Justified last night – wow, the dynamic between Raylan and Boyd is great; also – convinced that there’s no such thing as a good Crowder. Boyd in prison is hilarious – he fears nothing, which makes him interesting. Nice yin/yang thing going in this series – they’ve both got each other’s number, that’s for sure.
In terms of real-life – I’ve discovered the bankerwoes huddle series at Youtube. I kid you not—this is how retarded things are in banks. I see these and I laugh, but the script is real because I’ve had these conversations and am unable to say what Ms. Pinkdress is saying…it’s sweet to watch and laugh.
This one is great, because our last meeting actually covered that we have to say the same fucking greeting every time a customer comes in… and we have to say ‘thank you’ not thanks, but ‘thank you’. I swear, we spent 20 minutes on it and I nearly opened a vein.
This one is great because it says everything I’ve ever wanted to…
They seem to be about Chase, but trust me – it’s the template of insanity for every bank.
