Well, I'm still slowly recovering from being sick for about a week. It hit me hard. It started about a week after I increased my dose of azathioprine, which is an immunosuppressant and light chemo med. It didn't really affect me until now. There was a nasty cold going around when I started to feel sick, and now it seems everyone around me is either sick or getting over it. So, maybe it was inevitable? I don't get sick that often, and I kind of have a curiosity for it now. So, I made sure to write down when I was sick to see how often I'll be sick in the future. I still need to have a blood draw this month to see how things are progressing. Hopefully, it's helping a great deal. When I wasn't sick at this dose, my bones felt 'stiff', there was a weird pain around my joints, like there was fire in my gut, and I became dizzy. (It doesn't seem that bad right now, but then again I'm still getting over the remnants of my cold or whatever it was...) Hopefully, it was worth it, too...

I'm done with reformatting my 2nd novel. Yay! :dummy: I just need to do the cover art, and then I can send the whole thing off to Smashwords to get it published. I'm thinking of drawing a skull with a candle on top for part of the cover art. I didn't draw anything for my first one. (I used a tiny section from one of my pics.) This one is an anthology of 12 short stories based on my recurring nightmares. So, I thought this would probably be good for it. Not sure if it's too cheesy or chiche, but I like the idea. I think the only things that might be added with Photoshop is the background color and the title. I might use an effect or 2 for it. Not sure. (Like, to make the candle's light glow or something.) But, it won't be much. It sounds like it'll be simple, but gets the message through. In my head, it looks (and sounds) a lot better than my 1st novel's cover art. I can explain the novel itself a lot better, too. That'll be really handy for things like marketing it. While I'm waiting for the 2nd novel to be approved by Smashwords, I'll make posters or fliers for it. I might post the drawing of the skull and candle on here. I'm starting to feel really excited about the whole thing! :excited: Hopefully people will like it, too!
