I used this picture today to remind myself to stay calm.

Createspace finally accepted my print version of my book preview… But, they totally didn’t crop the pic this time. So now it needs redone, because the part they cropped last time, but not this time, now looks ridiculous!

*head desk*

Hubby is going to fix the cover art tonight. Then I will resubmit the cover and go under another 48 hour review.

On the writing front, I did get a whole paragraph for my current WIP written today before the atrocious heat kicked in. {We hit over 104 degrees today and are supposed to tomorrow as well.}

Smashwords sent my Dangerous Temptation Preview out to Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Apple, and Diesel today. They’ve also added two new distributors which they will ship to starting July 15th. Now all they have left is to ship it out to Sony, which should be tomorrow.

What do you do to beat the heat? How do you keep calm when you’re ready to pull your hair out?

    Aww, I hope you can get the approval quickly! That sounds like it sucks. =[
    And I basically just glue myself to the AC. I get cranky when it’s hot. Very cranky.

      Hello Zen, thanks for dropping by again. πŸ™‚

      It’s very frustrating to say the least. plus, the heat makes me really cranky, cause I get feverish and ill when it’s too hot. Even in the little back room with AC on full blast I got a nasty heat headache.

    Formatting and getting everything right can be so frustrating. It’s been raining here for days, despite the heat, so whenever it gets too hot, I just step outside and get soaked.

      Welcome back Emma. Glad to hear from you again. πŸ™‚

      It can indeed make you want to tear your hair out!

      Rain would be nice, but all we have is sun, and heat.

    I thank God that the air conditioning works! The only problem I have, my computer sits in the corner of the living room under the air vent! Sometimes I have to put on a windbreaker! Yesterday in town the thermometer said 108*, and us, too, Kitty, another scorcher today! This evening the church social will be water fun – water baseball and water volleyball with summer snacks. Wish ya’ll could join us! Until the social, I’ll sit here under the cold air and try to write!

    I’m sorry this is taking so long for you. Yes, head-to-desk! To combat the heat? I get wet. Either pool, lake or garden hose. If the water is cold enough it will cool you down for several hours.
