So I wasn't around here for a couple days--instead of writing my blog, I was spending all my free time praying. I wanted so desperately to win the book give-away contest at The Sphere.
Well, it paid off. I'm a winner. I won a copy of the book The Cleaner by Brett Battles. I'm excited, because I really don't win things too often. (I did win some CDs and DVDs from the local radio station last year for picking the most games right in the first week of the NFL season--13 out of 16. I didn't win it again because more people joined after that, and there was usually at least one person who picked every game right.)
I've been doing some editing this week--if you remember, a large chunk of my book was backstory, taking place in 1975. I had that in all as one chapter. I've taken it out now, chopped it up, and moved it around the book. Now I'm going through and cleaning it all up. When I'm done with all this, I'll let my wife go through it, and I won't look at it again for a couple weeks.
I've got a book in at the library--Joe Hill's Heart-Shaped Box. I'm really eager to pick this up. I've heard it's great, and I've even heard that it tops his dad's books. Joe Hill is Stephen King's son. So, yeah. It'll be cool.
