Giving yourself a deadline and telling people about it really, really works. Well, at least if you’re smothered in Catholic guilt and shame. I got the Kindle files to Amazon on time, and now we’re just waiting to see whether my writing is too edgy for those bougie fucks, man.
(By edgy, I mean “I hope I didn’t get the files all screwed up.)
I’m still using a provisional cover, because to be perfectly honest I AM Catholic, and thus put off the time when I was going to do a photo shoot half-naked in public till the last possible minute. Chicago photographer Marcus A. Brown took the photos last weekend and he’s still working on the design, so the Kindle edition has a provisional cover: a raw photo of me. The good news is that A. it’s still a half-naked chick on the cover, which is how you sell books, and B. Kindle will update your cover when I do, so if you buy it right when it comes out you will eventually get the proper cover uploaded.
So yay and shit! This has been a lot of work, but it’s pretty damn tight. If it doesn’t save your life, this book will at least make you laugh. Only a few hours till you can get it in your paws. Well, till you can get it in your Kindle, anyway.
