Phone rings … and of course as is habit I check the caller ID, because we get tons of junk calls despite being on the “do not call list” and all that is supposed to imply. It says “CreateSpace”
OMG why is CreateSpace calling me!!! Did someone on staff read my book and love it so much they want to offer me some sort of really awesome publishing deal… OMG OMG OMG!!!
Answer the phone…
Hi is this Sephira? We noticed your book has been in the proof stage for a while and wanted to know if there was any sort of issues that we could help with.
Nah… it’s all good. Still working on some last minute changes. Thanks for checking in.
Terrible, terrible thing to do to a person. 😄
(ok…yes… my brain is obviously on crack… but what else would you think – especially when you currently have a contest submission with them)
