First up - Long story short. I was in the hospital for three days this week - cellulitis - IV antibiotics - feeling better. Probably a dog bite. Feeling a lot better, but still tired.

Not counting my pre-orders or contracted (unwritten) books. So what's a release day look like?? I got up this morning and checked my stats. 10K on Kindle. Not bad. Then I did household finance things, got some bills paid, and d
