After a long drought of no news from SH, I finally got an email from Rich the editor. Didn't say a lot; what he told me was nice however. Basically SHP didn't forget me and a copy editor is looking over the manuscript and that Rich is going to send me some more notes soon about the story. He also had some news on the cover, saying that they're going in 'a different direction' with trying to include the leading lady and lad on it. Sounds like a good idea, though I'll have to see a fake copy to really decide about it.
As for the BEA and the blog hop, no news yet on BEA. As for the blog hop, more research shows that it's a contest for our blog readers, who seeming go around the blogs of the SHP writers answering questions about the writer's books, and there are prize packs for the winners. And it's free! So if you want some cool SHP swag, click here at:
Like 1: classes are over! Can now focus on finals and upcoming trip to France.
Dislike 1: no working power adapter. My Nintendo 3DS is running low, and the plugs I brought along which I THOUGHT would work didn't. Sam the roommate won't let me use any of hers either because it's a 'precarious setup' and she doesn't want any possible system blowups. So unless my sister's bringing the family's power adapter, I'm stuck with a dead Gameboy. :(
Dislike 2: practice essays. I'm taking a timed essay for my SciFi final, so other memorizing quotes for possible topics, I'm going to be doing fake one hour essays for practice. I'm starting Monday, but I already know I'm not going to like it. :P
And quote, from a movie this time:
“I just need to know that it's possible that two people can stay happy together forever.”
“Well, it's not easy, that's for sure. Now, I may not have the best track record in the world, but I have been with your stepmother for ten years now and I'm proud to say that we're very happy. Look, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly who you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person is still going to think the sun shines out of your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with.”
