Work Sucks

Well, not entirely. Found out a co-worker is going to be a dad and that's pretty neat. But we're publishing a lot of books and we're really short-handed. So I've been doing everything from redesigning the Web site to boxing books and labeling boxes. Today I finalized a contract for translation of one of our books into Korean, and an agreement to use Amazon on our own site for fulfillment. I'm also working on publishing the book of a very good photographer. I'm going to submit a proposal from Shaun O'Boyle. I can't believe he's not published yet. I think this can be very good. I also boxed and shipped about 500 books. And spent two hours listening to a bunch of publishers debate DRM while adding 6 books to a Print on Demand program.

And I love my job, really I do, so please don't get me wrong. But work has been so consuming recently. Man, I'm beat.
