What the World Needs Now is…More Magenta

At night, when the sun is going down, the whole office fills with a pink glow…like a sunset. I really like it so much more than the dark blue we used to have on the wall.

I’m not at all done fixing and rearranging. Working on seven presentations I have coming up for three trips kind of snuck in and took over. I’m giving myself until the end of the month to finish the project.

And in the land of news that’s actually writing-related, I will have a definitive thumb’s up or thumb’s down on book deal #2 in about four weeks. (Let’s hope it’s an offer!)

Please cross everything crossable for me in the meantime!

As good ol’ Tom Petty always used to say…”The wai-ai-ai-ting is the hard…est part.” So true.

Okay, well if I’m done dating myself, here’s a little dose of magenta to tie you over until I get this office finished. 🙂

Magenta Take Two

P.S. Surely someone will ask about the cool WM poster. It’s one that my publicist sent to one of the bookstores I visited. Maybe Third Coast Books, if memory serves.

I already have my own but they said I could take this one. It’s a little marred but it looks cool, no? Such an awesome cover that Claudean Wheeler designed for this book. Thanks again, Claudean!

    Good luck with the book deal. I hope the decision goes your way. I have recommended “Writer Mama” to three people thus far and cannot say enough good things about it so I would be pretty enthusiastic about a new book.

    FYI: my living room is magenta so I dig the new office!

    Good luck with the book deal – Oh, how I wish I had a door on my writing area – once I posted a picture of how I have to write:

    I usually have 2 little monkey’s asking for something at least every 5 minutes 🙂 I want a magenta room of my own.

    Good luck on the book deal! Love the magenta wall; our living room is Drumbeat Red. Now, I need to paint my office–off white is so boring.

    And thanks for all your help!

    Thanks, Ladies. Waiting is hard, but I’ve got plenty of work to do in the meantime…don’t we all.

    We all speak the universal language of color. So cool.

    And yes, Samantha Rose does look an awful lot like her sweet daddy.
