So, being the lazy (yet prudent) person that I am, I hired ‘Two Men and a Truck’ to help me move my stuff to storage. And they were worth every penny. Not only were they nice guys (and really, really cute), they were strong and quick and had my stuff out of the apartment in no time flat. Really took the stress out of moving.
I still have my lease until July 31, but I’m basically out. This makes me sad. I live in the middle of downtown, with views of the state capital and the lake—a beautiful, perfect location. I’m really going to miss it.
I’m heading down to Indiana tomorrow to spend some time with family. Luckily, my revisions are almost done. I have to FedEx out a CD of the novel, dedications, bio, and a picture. This should be interesting. I thought about doing something silly—like using a shot of the family poodle, and saying something like, ‘the author is an extremely hairy individual…” That, however, will only work as long as the publisher uses the picture in conjunction with the bio. Otherwise, a very strange image of me will form. She’s hairy! Extremely so! Yee-haw!
