Today is April 30th and here in Canada that means taxes are due... like... now. I spent most of yesterday working on mine, all the while feeling like Homer Simpson in that episode where he gets audited. Remember that one? No?
I can't believe I managed to find it online, but here's what I'm talking about (N.B. I used to be like Ned Flanders): http://vimeo.com/34934693
Taxes aside, I'm ready for the coming of May.
For me, April's been the month of "meh"--especially when it comes to reviews. In my years of writing, I've had my share of 1-star reader reviews, and I've had my share of 5-star reviews, but this April has been the month of three. Or, on a scale of poor, fair, ok, good, excellent my work has garnered an "ok." Meh. Everywhere I look, I see "meh."
Even books like "Friends of Dorothy" (my cross-dressing cowboy MMF menage) which has garnered nothing but 5 stars in the year or two it's been on the market seems to have been slapped with a three. More "meh." Not that readers can't rate my books however they please, it just seems like a trend this month.
Maybe I should just shut my gob and count my blessings--my threes could be ones. My mehs could be baaaaads. (Although, when it comes to other authors' books, I find I only read 1-star reviews. Does anybody else do that? I never read the 5-stars. Am I the only one?)
Work aside, May Day happens to be the four-year anniversary of my first date with my Sweet. Stay tuned, because tomorrow I'll let you know how we're planning to celebrate--and it involves YOU. In fact, we can't do it without you.
So be here tomorrow, same bat wings, same leopard leggings... or... how does that go? *smirk*
