Syzygy and Mogli Take Two

I am so grateful to Mark, the angel over at Smashwords.com, who helped me get Syzygy's formatting straightened out. :) It was such a mess, but it's now simply lovely! I highly recommend this place for publishing your ebook. They're also affiliated with some folks who do audio books. I haven't checked them out, but I plan to do so very soon. What fun!  Coupon code AL58U will get you Syzygy for only .99cents until Sept 15th.


This weekend was such a whirl. My niece went into labor practically at the moment I first uploaded Syzygy and nearly 42 hours later, like an hour after Mark cleared up the format problem for me, my niece gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Mogli.

Seriously, do tech geniuses take weekends or sleep at night? He sent this email after 11pm on Saturday night.

Novel creation isn't nearly as awesome (and I use the word in the profound, not the slang sense) as birthing a baby. I've done both. Three babies and one novel to date. But I've thought about the similarities. The amazing timing of these two events brought back the parallels.
