"I want you to take my bandage and go and take my pistol test for me.......I can't hit the target, give me a break."

 Wherein Jack lost her wrist brace.

 I was going to do a cool post before I released today's....book release....make you want to read the book thingy. I will think up an official name someday. But, I can't find my wrist brace. And since I can't type long without it, you don't get a long, brilliant post. Instead, you get....whatever I can type before my fingers stop working, so there. 

 Today I finished the FINAL reading of Abolished! It is now all ready to go, and is just waiting for the release date. Now that I have that done I can concentrate on finals. And The Hobbit, because everyone knows that is VERY important.

 Hm....even with my wrist brace I don't think I'd make it far with being brilliant. (Actually, I am trying to figure out how to change my signature and am not really thinking about brilliance at the moment. When I have it up everyone can see which one won the vote.) Hopefully I won't break my wonderful new background trying to find the signature thing. If I ever get rich and famous off my books I'm hiring someone to do all of the technical website stuff for me. I'll just point at it and go, "Make it do this!" and they will do it without blinking and I will be in awe of their skills.

 Okay, enough though. I've got to the point where my fingers don't want to work, so I will leave you with this! The title chapters from Abolished! (Friday's post will be filled with snippets from the book, and then Saturday the book will be out!)

 Quote is from Columbo again, when he is avoiding target practice. He finds out he will loose his badge if he doesn't go so he convinces someone to take the test for him.




  1. I'm so excited for your new book!!! Way to go on getting it done, even with an injury. Take care of yourself, study hard, and then . . . enjoy the Hobbit!

  2. Aaaaah it's so close to the release of your book!!!!!! How much awesomely excited are you???


    "make it do this" that's awesome. lol. I know the feeling. After a couple tries of something, I tend to throw my hands up in a way that does my Italian heritage proud and mumble something about the evilness of technology. XD
