Proof Copy Arrived!

The proof copy of my novel came here today in the mail. I freaked out when I saw the small cardboard box. I have to edit it a little still, as I can see, but soon it'll be ready and I have to get another copy and approve it, then it'll be on Amazon! I'm so happy!

Little Angels Trailer

Quick summary: Virus in a small town. Easy peasy. In the actual story (only 3 pages), there's a specific family, but I decided to make the trailer a little bit more vague. (Song - "9 Crimes" by Damien Rice)

Cover of Give and Take

Give and Take going to Amazon!!

Okay, so, one of NaNoWriMo's sponsors is CreateSpace which lets authors, musicians, and filmmakers create and sell their works. Because I won NaNoWriMo, I got a free code that let me get a free proof copy of my novel. It should be here on the 28th. Then, once I approve it, it will be able to be sold on Amazon! I'm uber excited! It will have a cover (which I designed), an ISBN number, EVERYTHING! I can't wait!

Update on ... everything.

I haven't posted in a while. Sorry. My life has been ... lifelike. I have picked up some new likes and dislikes in music, movies, sports (yeah, I know), and even comedy. Especially ventriloquism (if you were in Moline at the iWireless Center on the 31st, you probably know who I'm talking about).
As far as music goes, I think I may be getting into ... pop. Indie pop, but still, it's pop. I'm beginning to worry about myself. I just watched an entire day of football. That could be it. :)
I realized that, in movies, there has to be a solid backbone of a story, or the effects don't matter. Now, I almost abandoned this because my and a friend went to see Tron: Legacy and the effects were spectacular, but there was no story. The relationships were awkward. I mean, it goes from "Dad?" "Sam?" "I missed you!" "Ditto!" to "Any girlfriends?" "Uh, no."
Sports - one big dislike. I still hate football.
Now, comedy. Jeff Dunham. He is LOLROFLLMAO. He is hilarious. I'm not even kidding. We watched Spark of Insanity, the Very Special Christmas Special, and bloopers online. I almost peed my pants 3 times.
I am working on a short story. It's sci-fi and I made a trailer. Except I can't post it right now because I dropped my flash drive on the floor at home somewhere and can't find it. :(
Have a good rest-of-holiday!
