Well, my New Year’s Resolution paid off. Using my new schedule of working on MY books at least one hour each morning has helped me finally finish the book I’ve been working on for what seems like forever, BOOK PROPOSALS THAT WORKED! Real Book Proposals That Landed $10K – $100K Publishing Contracts! Whoo hoo!!

Now I can sit back and…get to work on my next one! Ha ha. Richard will be doing the marketing campaign for the book. I write. He promotes. It works out really well for us all!

I have a confession. Zach loaned us his DVD set of the first season of Lost. We watched it and got hooked. So, Richard bought me the second season on DVD for Valentine’s Day. We already finished it. I sent Ali out to buy the third season. I mean, really, when the temperature is hovering just above zero and it’s dark and cold outside. What better thing to do than pop some popcorn and lie around for a few hours until bedtime getting entertained? Beats laundry!

This week’s Maxism: “When you die, they take you to church and put you in the basket.”

(In case you haven’t figured it out yet, he meant casket.)
