Somehow this one only got saved as a draft on December 9th instead of posted… So here’s that week’s post, and I’m working on this week’s….

It has been snowing and cold for the last week. Really cold. Below freezing most of the time cold. The snow has not been much around here. Dustings, really. But enough that people have had their usual bout with learning how to driving in snow for the year. Not that they will get a whole lot better, but at least they’ve had a reminder. My front lawn was half snow dusted, half still green in the bright shining sun today. It actually looked pretty neat.

Not a lot going on. Christmas shopping for the nieces and nephew complete. Schedule for when we get to deliver them still up in the air. Plans for our Christmas dinner and movie still incomplete as well. Just biding our time and trying not to let the year speed to a finish quite yet.

I got my copies of Daily Bites of Flesh yesterday. My first story published in a real bound book. So, that’s pretty cool.

Lots of hours at the store this month, so that’s good, but leaves me tired with all the early mornings. Hopefully I’ll have something more interesting to say next week.

Published again! My flash fiction piece, Dead Eyes, has been published in a 365 story vampire anthology called Daily Bites of Flesh, by Pill Hill Press.  The anthology should hit Amazon and B&N.com soon.

Hours at the story ramp up as do the holiday sales and shoppers. I really enjoyed getting to work through the games backstock today. Such a geek, but I like making things organized and neat. Pained me a bit to not get to finish cleaning up the receiving shelves, but got a lot of product out onto the floor.

Bookup.com had a great weekend/Black Friday sale. Many CDs and DVDs are being shipped out this week.

I can start applying for jobs on Elance again on Sunday. I have been studying up for my next skills test, only to find that there’s a New edition to the Chicago Manual of Style that I did not know had come out. It’s pale blue, which I find a little bit creepy. Not sure why I like the bright orange better, but I do. They have updated for modern technology and usage according to the jacket cover.

It is December already, the year is almost over. So much done and so much yet to do. Up next, Christmas shopping!
