penmage: (editing like an editor)
Today, we learned that we are putting one of our paperbacks on the Summer 09 list. That means that I had to write cover copy, front matter, teaser matter, and catalog copy for the book today.

The reason this is extra-fun is because all of those things are basically blurbs about the book. Which means they all share the basic same idea—which would be, the plot of the book. And yet each one of them needs to be different.

This, on top of the three different ways I blurbed the plot for the hardcover edition.

Usually, these tasks are spread out over time. You do them over a few months.

Doing them all in one day?

I am BURNT OUT. I never want to look at this book again. Augh.

In further news, I discovered an amazing new resource earlier this week—the CT library system. Those of you who know me know that I have a slavering devotion and love for NYPL, the wonderful New York Public Library system. But we moved to CT, and I got a library card at the CT library, and suddenly I realized—now I have a whole new library system to abuse! And then, in a fit of brilliance, I placed hold on all the titles I have been waiting and waiting and waiting—months, I tell you! for NYPL to get in stock.

And like, twelve of them have already come in for me!

I love this new shiny library system.
