Why can't I figure this out?

Some people are born with a brain that can understand techno-ese and some aren't.

Guess what category I'm in?

You'd think that a person who could construct a novel could figure out how to turn an excel spreadsheet into a word document for labels.  Not me.  I've tried.  Thank goodness I have friends who are a lot smarter than me in that respect.  I wanted to target libraries in New Hampshire and New York for my upcoming Booktown Mystery MURDER ON THE HALF SHELF, so I separated them out of my list and ... then what?

Thank heaven my friend Dru came to the rescue, or I'd be cutting and pasting for a million years.  (Surely you've heard of Dru Ann Love -- she not only has her own blog, but she reviews mysteries with the Cozy Chicks every 15th of the month.)

BartlettL-PC-MOTHS-120525-5-frontLast week I discoverd that I hadn't ordered enough postcards, so back to the printer I went.  But this time I had them change it.  I thought the original (which was REALLY BROWN) was a little dark, so I had them redo them with a peach colored background.  

Now ... to print out the new labels and stick them and the stamps on the postcards.  I've got my DVDs out and I'm ready to go.

Check your mailbox in about three weeks for your postcard!  (And if you aren't on the list, you can sign up right here at this blog. Just scroll down a bit for the sign-up form.)
