Preparations for what I hope is a frenzy

Somehow, in the course of a week, I've gone from tolerably occupied to unbelievably busy.

Not that it isn't exciting. In a month, my first novel, "Zero at the Bone," is being published by Dreamspinner Press. In that time, I'll need to review the publisher's edits, return them, then correct the galley proofs when they arrive. In the meantime, my web designer and I are busy setting up the Jane Seville Books website, and I'm setting up this blog and the Google Group I've opened for news and announcements.

Meanwhile, my cover artist, Paul Richmond, and I are planning a big event, a sort of signing/reading/book release party. Luckily he is the Zen Master of promotion and is dying to take it over because I don't know if I can do it!

Then there's the Zero sequel to begin, my store to manage, my dog to walk and my mainstream-fiction novel to rewrite for the fifth time. That's a lot to handle, especially when you're a Nonexistent American. Things are always just a little harder for the metaphysically challenged. I can't even get good service in a restaurant. It's like they don't even see me.

But hey, at least I don't need to sleep. Good thing too, because I won't have much time to between now and the release!


  1. Congratulations and well I'm hoping you have all the success in the world. Yes, it takes a lot of dedication and hard work to do these things and it is truly a gift to the world. You have made my life happier by writing your stories I have had the good fortune to read and I look forward to more. Joe
