More Adventures at Createspace

Some of the things you should never do when you are exhausted...

1. Make life altering decisions. No jumping into marriage. Buying a house. Having another child... you get the picture.
2. Drive. As an example, you should never try to drive the almost 10 hours from Maine to Pennsylvania and back in one shot just because you are convinced it'll be no problem... it will probably be a problem and no amount of caffeine and blasting 80's music while you sing at the top of your lungs will keep you awake when you are that tired.
3. Buying groceries... sounds innocent enough, but I can tell you that there are a whole lot of bad decisions that are made when you have to rush into the grocery store after working all day and can't figure out what you want for dinner. Hamburger Helper anyone? How about my friend Bun's choice of sardines in a can or Moxie over ice cream with potato chips. Yes... I'm serious. But he is an original.
And lastly...
4. Don't do anything embarrassing. Never try to proof read simple cover copy when you've been working insane hours at your day job. It won't work well and you'll probably post something to Facebook that you'll be mortified by.

In my case, I misspelled the name of my book and then missed it completely. Duh!!!!! But Createspace was very nice and helpful and had it changed at all the Amazon venues. I'm very happy. And very mortified. But the mortification is dissolving at the shear fact that the book is now available  to hold in you hot, little hands. Thank goodness that Blogger has spell check!
