Yesterday was a day of little things...some little that got accomplished (including my 2k a day word count) and others that landed on my desk but that I was waiting for and happy to see.
First of all, hooray for Canada and PLR. PLR is Public Lending Right and it is a way for authors to get a tiny bit of money for their books being in the library sytem here. The UK has done this for years as well, and I feel really fortunate we have it in this country. I got my first PLR cheque yesterday. Small, certainly, but any little bit is great. Now I get to add the new titles from the last year to my bibliography.
One title I will add is the hardcover library edition of The Soldier's Homecoming. It was released last year by Thorndike Press and I hadn't thought of listing it except a neighbour popped by last night because he'd received a parcel in error. It was 3 copies of this edition. So that came and I have a giveaway going on over at the eharlequin community...the post is called Friday Freebie...
And my tax form came from the Calgary school board for the small amount of fill-in work I did last year before we moved. This means that over the next week I'll be putting everything together (this takes a while when you're self-employed and can write off bits of household expenses) and we are letting an accountant work her magic this year rather than me stressing.
So good news although a few new tasks to be done in addition to FINISHING THIS BOOK.
Which means - I'm signing off, and hoping to finish chapter seven today.
