This is publication day for Happy Kid!. The first thing I did today was clean the bathroom. Because there is a taekwondo storyline, I gave some copies of the book to people I train with when I went to class today. After I got home I scoured the kitchen sinks, did a lot of dishes, and roasted a chicken for dinner.
I also wrote a letter to my editor and mailed it to her with the second draft of the next book. She e-mailed me to say that an illustrator has been selected for that project.
I mention all this to point out that by the time publication day comes, it's pretty much over. It's time to move on to other things.
